On-Site SEO, how much content is needed?

I am thinking about starting from scratch on a niche website. Most of the basics I am familiar with such as H1 tags, keywords, LSI keywords, and internal/external backlinking for SEO. However, I am still fuzzy about the amount of content I should be adding to the site. On average, about how many unique articles should I have published on my site, such as a WP blog, that the search engines will rank good for?

It depends on the niche, sometimes even 5 articles are enough for 1st page and sometimes you write 100+ articles but in vain. Share your niche then i can help you better.

Do you mean to say that you will post 5 articles in one page? Isn’t it more practical if you post one article per web page to give your readers the convenience of respite? A web page with 5 articles will be a long read and your readers may get tired not to mention that it will also be a burden to you since you have to write so many articles when you create a new web page with new contents.

As rightly said, it depends on the niche market, but if it is a new blog /site, a minimum of 5 posts is advisable but I have seen blogs ranking even with only 2 posts. Contents pays a big role here.

As many as it takes until you have got 1st page ranking and are ranking #1 for your targeted keywords.

Sometimes you could be writing and adding articles to your site and doing SEO on it as well for years before it pays off. Eventually it can pay off if you can out write your competitors. In that, you provide more content on your site about that subject, topic or niche you're in than they do on the same things. But then you wouldn't want to stop adding new content to your site either after that even if you did get good rankings. Because there would always be new articles you could write that could rank for more things that can go on to get you more traffic to your site by sheer volume of articles you're writing. The more that you do, the more things you'll be ranking for which results in more traffic for your site and more money for you and your business. It's all pretty relative!

Of course, you can buy many great article writing services and content creation right here on SEOClerks so if you hit writers block or can't come up with ideas and inspiration or just don't have the time or energy they will be able to handle that aspect of things for you. You could also hire a freelancer or create a WTB requesting something specific such as the niche you're in.

If you want to monetize your site with ad network such as adsense, you need at least 20 original articles. Google does not care about the sites with not enough contents, you should have good number of contents in order to rank on google search. If there are not enough contents, there is no room for on site SEO. Onsite SEO is when you add keywords to the contents. If there are no contents or not enough contents, where are you going to add keywords?

As per most of the advice that I came across in the discussions in this site, when creating content, always take into consideration your audience. If it is a blog, what you should have in mind are your readers and not the SEO capability. That way, you can get the loyalty of your audience since you are posting good contents for them. And the SEO capability will naturally follow because of the good contents that you are posting.
