Optimal Growth Rate for Sites?
Ok, I kinda have a complex question but need answers. Mark recommends getting about 60 pages when creating a new website. What I am interested in knowing is what's the optimal growth rate (does adding subdomains count, or just web pages). After the site has "x-amount" of pages, the optimal rate at which we can add more content should grow as well.
In other words, red flags may be raised if a brand new site's growth rate is 100 new page per day. However, maybe that rate of growth would be optimal after the site has been around for awhile and/or is receiving a lot of traffic. Does anyone have figure that would be a good guide to go by?
Also, how many links to add per day, quality links vs quantity (avoiding red flags), links from various IP's, deep linking, targeted linking, etc etc.
I really need all the information I can get. The site I am creating is a multi hundred page site. I will be paying many people to write articles and putting these pages up on the fly. I just want to fly under the radar.
