    SEO, the Big G and New Content Question
    I was reading that one way Google determines a site's value is by the amount of updates of new pages a site does daily. Apparently "a lot" of uploading new pages isn't such a good thing, but I wonder what "a lot" is? Has anyone who creates "a lot" of pages daily noticed a decline in traffic? And if you had to guess, what would you think "a lot" might be?

    Thank you,

    Agreed. If you continue to build your site for your visitor and give them what they want, you'll be doing what will eventually make sense to any search engine's algo of the moment.

    Also something to keep in mind: Google doesn't make money by sending us free traffic. They naturally need to keep their searches relevant to the end user but they are also in business to make a profit and will find more and more ways to force us into buying those SERPS. If you're building a site and adding pages that your target audience will like, you're doing the best you can without having to pay for search traffic. Trying to game Google or any other entity we have no control over is crazy-making and non-productive. Either play their game and spend some cash for traffic or build the best site you can for you audience. Or both. :-)
    Peace,

    If updates to your content are useful and relevant to your visitors, then they'll probably be viewed positively by search engines.

    If your updates are unnecessary, random, and create no benefit for users, the search engines' algorithms will probably figure this out.

    Realize it's not a new page but if this is their thinking, you would think maybe that the frequent updating of blogs could be considered similar?

    I think they associate it with content farms.
