How many articles do I need to start with content site?

Hi

I'm looking to start a content website to promote a forex afiliate program. \I have written 10 articles so far. Is 10 articles enough to get started? Or do I need more than that?

10 articles is good enough to start a content site with. You can start doing SEO and link building, getting traffic to the site, and all that.

You can then add more articles as the site grows.

Hi kkryptonic,

As Cecille says, 10 articles are enough to get you started. But I want to add a few points to answer your question, especially if what you mean is "Is 10 articles enough to start making money?"

The short answer is: you must make as many articles as you need to make sales, no more no less. Not every website needs the same amount of content to make sales. Some websites need a lot of content being published on a regular schedule. Other websites need only a handful of posts or pages that can be published on a very relaxed schedule.

You also need to write different types of articles. As an affiliate, you will write informational articles combined with articles that review or compare products. As a rule of thumb, I find that writing one review or comparison article for every four information articles is a good ratio (but this isn't a hard and fast rule).

I've made a video that further explains about how many articles should you write per day. In my experience, I have built an affiliate site that has made $4,600+ total revenue with only three pages of content: https://youtu.be/wllADJISHTA

I hope that helps to answer your question.

Cheers,

10 articles are more than enough to start your website. Some people start with less and still have success.
The trick is to find a balance. Don`t start a website with thin content, but also don`t overdo it. If you post all the information at the beginning, what are you going to post later on?

As a digital marketing executive at [link removed by moderator], I am sure 10 articles are good for start. But however you will need to write more articles as per user user and search engine demand.

It depends on length of an article mostly one article is approximately of 500 words. So at least 5 - 10 articles per day is sufficient for SEO

Hello! I have a little idea but may seem helpful about the topic.
To be able to make make money even though I am newbie at the thing depends on many things:copywriting skills,marketing skills,landing design and much more.
But,it does not depend on the amount of articles nor the length(in some cases),but the quality and relevant the articles are to attract more visitors referred by search engines(in the case of free traffic).
This means one well written article can be more friendly to search engines and able to convert visitors into buyers.

In my opinion,I think there is no way you can not begin your promoting journey with 10 articles if well reviewed.

Again please,If your expectations are only to promote that product using only the seo traffic try to make your articles much seo friendly otherwise this may take a very long time to start seeing visitors coming to your affiliate product.

Thank you very much and have chance on your journey.

I think that 10 articles is not enought for site. It should be about 15 at list. And you should add new article twice a week for a start.
