    just started a new blog focusing on a niche this week.

    i've already posted 6 articles and a homepage.

    Google has indexed my homepage and only 1 article.

    im cranking out 1-2 new articles per day now. i hope to have at least 20 by next week done.,

    in google's eyes, is it better for me to just start pumping out all of my articles now as i write them. or should i drip post them over the next few weeks or months?

    whats better?

    1 article/day will be Good. drip feed them.

    There will be time when you will not be able to write content daily due to xyz reason. at that time you can post these ready articles.

    From what I have read it is better to post slower. I wonder if there is a difference if the articles are high quality should they be dripped over a longer period. I hope someone more experienced will explain this in detail.

    At that scale it doesn't matter. Now if you are talking about 1000 posts it would be different.

    Has google crawled your site since you posted those other pages? If they aren't getting indexed you need to make sure you haven't goofed anything in the meta and that the content is proper (and not duplicated anywhere).

    If you have actually people reading your site, then dripping regularly encourages repeat visitors and gets you showing up at the top of an RSS feed. I also think it's possible to train the google-bot to visit your site more frequently which is good for getting new pages indexed quicker, though honestly that has more to do with your sites overall authority. And there is a "freshness" factor for sites that get updated regularly, but the degree to which that plays an effect varies by niche.

    I guess it depends on your plans for the site and your SEO approach.

    Totally agree with the above post. Posting 1 - 5 articles per day doesnt make any difference. However, if you have +100 ready articles, then you should drip feed them. Starting with 5 articles/day then adding more as you gain traffic and authority

    i am writing high quality articles by hand.

    each one averages 1,000 words and they are all around the same tight niche.

    in the past i created sites that targeted a variety of keywords in a niche that didn't have related terms. For example: (NOT MY NICHE) best fitness workouts, protein shake powders, cheap dumbells, etc. I thought i could capture a bunch of long tail keywords this way and rank high. However i think this method may be flawed since google may not be able to determine what my site is about. Is it about Fitness, recipes or buying gym equipment??

    so my new approach is to pick one item, lets say, Fitness Workouts, and write articles on variations of that term. For example: best fitness workouts, 30 minute fitness workouts, Jerry's fitness workout Versus James approach, etc.

    so then, google will definitely know that my site is all about fitness workouts and hopefully start ranking me higher for many keywords.

    thoughts?

    Post them slowly, as folks above say. Google's crawlers will learn and visit your blog more often.
