I have been asking myself quite often about whether there exists a relation between the number of pages your content website has and the daily organic uniques it garners. Definitely a website with 200 daily organic uniques for 100 pages is better in terms of seo optimization and niche than another website which has 200 pages but 100 daily organic uniques.
Also, I believe there is a critical ratio from which your traffic should spike. For instance, you would probably start getting traffic only when you have 20 pages on your website and the OTIR ratio should gradually increase with more pages added (more content and more ageing,etc.) Once it reaches 1:1(not established,just an example), the traffic should grow exponentially from there.
If we establish the value of this critical ratio, we will also be able to know that we are doing something wrong if the traffic does not spike from there.
Let me give you a live example. I have one personal blog and one website I work for. The website I work for has been around for 5-6 years, but with bad history (freelancers we hired had put in lots of duplicate content). Now, after 12000 odd pages in the website, we still have only around 11500 organic uniques daily. On the other hand, my personal blog of 500 odd pages, already has 400 daily uniques from SERPS.
Now, given both these websites operate in the same niche, I would be able to infer that OTIR for the bigger website has not grown enough in 5 years; so something is wrong - probably it is because of the bad history.
I hope I am making some sense here. Could people give more inputs on this idea..
