How Much is Too Much

10,000 new pages at once risky for a new site?

Is it risky to launch a web site with, let's say, 1,000 pages of original content?

Or would it be better to slowly release new content over time?

I figure Google would rather see a steady flow of new content, versus shooting your entire load and then doing 2 or 3 new articles per week.

Thoughts?

I'd say, if you have the content, put it up.

There's a better chance you'll be found if you have 1000 pages up, than just 100...

what about stimulating the spiders to visit on a regular basis?

if you put 1000 articles up, then only added a few per week afterwards, you might not get the spiders into a nice rhythm

but, imagine if you put 250 articles up, then added 3 or 4 per day, you might get the spiders to crawl on a regular basis to get indexed quicker, then your visitors have a reason to return knowing they get 5 pieces of new content everyday...

that is what i''m kind of thinking...

Spiders will follow whatever links trail you set up. It has nothing to do with rhythm. Put links out there and the spiders will eat.

I also say put everything up right away.

Google might be wary at first of 1000 pages dumped onto the net at once, but they'll accept it as soon as they realize you're not adding 1000 pages a day for weeks or months at a time (scraper/spammer behavior).

As previously said, there's no "search engine rhythm".

If you hold back the pages, for every "return visitor" who might come back to see what you've got that's new, there are 10 more who would have wanted that information in the first place and didn't visit you because it wasn't yet on your site.

The age of a page matters when it comes to getting noticed: a) SE's trust it more, b) people have more time to see and link to it.

>>>> b) people have more time to see and link to it.<<<<

Yes, that's smart thinking! Although it's a shame one can't put out as many pages as one wants. A bit restrictive of those controlling engines - just remember that these are potential paying advertisers, and Mr Engine just shut them out hmmmm.
