CAN I DO A ONE PAGE WEBSITE - SEO LONODN
So. when I get a new client they are usually asking me why they 're website is not ranking in Google.
One of the most common issues I find is that their website does not have enough pages. And then they ask "How many pages do I need?"
Well that does depend. I do know that more equals better, but what is the minimum?
HOW MANY WEBSITE PAGES DO YOU NEED?
Yeah, so generally I tell my clients they need a minumum of 6 pages and a blog page to rank.
And that each page needs a minimum of x number of keywords, images and additional content.
BUT DO I KNOW THIS FOR SURE?
Well in short no? All I Know is Google loves content and the more content you have the better your page will rank.
SO I DECIDED TO TEST IT
So initially I set up a one page wbsite for my name "Zach Mendelsohn". I thought well that ar are quite a few websites and people causing Zach Mendelsohn and that would be a simple and easy benchmark. to follow.
I mean, if I can't rank highly for my own name then surely there is proof in the theory (nearly said pudding then).
ONE PAGE ZACH MENDELSOH WEBSITE
You can see it here https://zachmendelsohn.weebly.com/
So it took nearly 3 weeks for Google to pick it up in searches (seacrh results) despite me linking to it.
And is now only on page 3 of Google.
NOT THE BEST START UP
Usually my page would be picked up within 48hrs bu not this one. 3 weeks.........
SO I ADDED A GOOGLE BUSINESS LISTING
Not sure whether this helped or was the main reason why I got listed but I have now linked this account with Google Business. See here https://zach-mendelsohn.business.site
Interestingly this webpage is now No.1 in Bing Search Engine.
It appears Google is a bit more disconcerting!
WILL SOCIAL MEDIA HELP?
So that has not stopped me!
I have used existing accounts and created new social media channels to link to this new website.
And I have basically thrown everything at it.
So will a one page ZACH MENDELSOHN website rank highly in Google?
SEO RESULTS THUS FAR
Results are ongoing but they do seem to back up my and other peoples theories.
WHICH IS: That you need more than one wesbite page to rank highly in Google.
Results were not as bad as I expected though and I hope to update you on further improvements.
