Another Reason To Blog

Websites with 401 to 1,000 pages get SIX times more leads than those with 51 to 100 pages.

Websites with 401 to 1,000 pages get NINE times more visitors than those with 51 to 100 pages.

Websites with greater than 1,000 pages get EIGHT times more leads than those with 51 to 100 pages.

Pretty cool huh? An easy way to create pages is to create blog posts that provide value and are relevant to your target audience. There are even more stats f you think 400 Pages is out of your reach.

Websites with 31 to 40 pages get SEVEN times more leads than websites with 1 to 5 landing pages.

Websites with greater than 40 pages get 12 times more leads than those with 1 to 5 landing pages.

I saw this a while ago and forgot where it came from but wrote it down. Looking it up it comes from Hubspot’s Lead Generation Lessons From 4,000 Businesses.

    1. @DavidRogers I don’t think you’re alone there, lots of people are in the same boat as you! I’ll try to get some tips on that topic onto the site sometime soon.

  1. Thanks Joel for this information. Definitively motivational! PS. Only because they say there are no stupid questions :-]: What’s the best tool to know how many pages Google thinks your blog has? I’ve got posts in various stages of draft or published – think I know the answer here – but also tons of pages, partly “Private” or “Password Protected” or “Public” – not sure what the bean counter rules would be here.

    Whether you find the time to answer or not, thanks again for the info!

    1. @beatcoach The best place is to submit your sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools – http://google.com/webmasters. If you have a plugin like XML Sitemap you can give that URL in your Webmasters account, then wait a day or two and it will tell you how many URLs are in the sitemap and then how many are indexed (a smaller number usually).Private posts are for logged in users only but while password protected would be available to be indexed there is no relevant content on them to the search engine (a protected message) so unlikely to be indexed.

      Hope that helps!

  2. Hi Joel,

    Thanks again for more information. I did not relaize every blog post was a page. Guess I should have. I better keep writing my tush off. Keep those pages coming! OK what are “scrappers and content farms” you and Andrew are talking about?

    Thanks again for sharing, be waiting for the answer. Always more to learn.

    1. @happymakernowco Scrapers is probably how they should be spelled, sites that take your RSS feed and scrape it onto their site to add content for free. Content farms are sites that have lots of articles on every subject under the sun to get people to visit more.

    2. Thank Joel for answering my question. You always come through. I sure am glad you guys keep me up on this stuff. Learn something new ever day. So how do we know if they are using are RSS feed and scrape it onto their site to add content for free?

      Sorry for anther question but when it comes to stuff like this, I feel of the wagon about a mile back. Throw me a rope. LOL

      Thanks again,

      Debbie

    3. @happymakernowco You’re always welcome! Usually you will get trackbacks and/or pingbacks to your site so you can tell. But often you don’t know if it’s happening.

  3. Great share Joel.

    A post we could share with those ‘scammers’ who say “Get millions of visitors by next week with just a few blog posts!”

    Andrew

    1. @BlogTechGuy But Google will know that the content has been scrapped and not put it high in the searches. I assume becasue of the amount of posts you have…the more natural searches you get.

      Andrew

    2. @andrewrondeau I’m not always convinced Google does know it’s scrapped. The latest Panda update supposedly helped, but scrappers and content farms are always high in the results for certain topics.

  4. Dear Joel –

    Very interesting. Since this is my fifth year of blogging – those posts do add up.

    Thanks for doing all the research for us. Good work.

  5. Hi Joel,

    Thanks for sharing this. Is each blog post consider a page? I love your recent posts on some of the challenges of blogging. I certain need advice for these areas.

    Cheers

    1. @superdaddy2007 Yes, each blog post has a page (called the single blog post page) so the more blog posts on relevant subjects to your site, with relevant keywords and are useful to visitors, the better!
