It's certainly possible. But don't expect it until you get a good number of links pointing to you. The more links, the more Googlebot realizes you're worth it.

you mean to say more links, but from where & how?
| 4:41 am on Dec 21, 2004 (gmt 0)|
From free directories such as DMOZ, paid directories such as Yahoo or BCentral, reciprocal links, partner sites, friends and family sites, etc. There's much written on this site as to how to do that best.

Yep, diamondgrl is giving good advice.
Also, think about a good nav structure, as well as SE friendly URLs.

A new site with 8000 pages of content right off the bat?

Not as hard as you might imagine... Just a database

8k pages is super easy with good incoming links :)

>when googlebot vists my site, will all 8000 pages be indexed?
Yep, if you have solid incoming links to root. So long as you have an easy path from root to internal links, Googlebot will find them. I've even had the issue of Google indexing orphan pages I wanted to abandon. Even though I dropped the links to these pages on my site, Googlebot found them from a link from a minor blog. Googlebot is voracious.

From my experience, PR6 will do. Get that, and Googlebot will follow. Likely even a PR4 will do today. Google seems to want to index whatever it can find.

i bet google will!

I recall stumbling over some pages of a "Competitor" a few years ago, who seemed to have generated a separate page for each of his products, and was well in the index with all these pages.
For about two weeks.
Never seen him again since then.
I also use script generated pages for my products catalogue, however with a very inhomogenous (i.e. "natural") hierarchical structure of three to four levels of groups of products, groups of groups of products and so forth.
I also put considerable effort in these groups making sense and thus do follow googles first law: Concentrate on the user.
If your site is new and you have nothing to loose, you may give it a try. If you just want traffic, be sure the porn industry has had this genious idea about ten years ago.
Let me estimate that in order to convince googles algo it'd be worth to index all these pages, you need four to twelve unique lexical entries (=words) on each of these pages. If you typed more than 40000 words into your database by hand I'd also bet google will..

If you want to get those 8000 pages indexed quicker, get deep links to a variety of your internal pages from sitea that are already indexed.
Google will work their way out from each of these entry points.
You should still understand that it can take a couple of months for Google to work their way to all your pages if you so not have links coming in from a variety of sites.

If the pages have unique, useful content, there is no reason they should not be indexed assuming they have good incoming links.

Get high PR or use deep links.
