Hi guys,

I joined last month. So far I have 10 posts on my blog with nearly 11,000 words in total.

I've read in many different forums and groups over the years that usually 20 blog posts or pages will see you getting consistent daily traffic from Google search.

Does this still stand true? What has been your experience?

My site is two years old. I put one 1000 word blog post on it 12 months ago and saw dribs and drabs of traffic. The URL used to redirect to my web store. Now I'm using it as a sort of pre sale.

It has 1.1k back links. Historically 7k back links. There is plenty of visibility for my brand.

I did 63 press releases to it in 2018, when the url was being re directed. Have done one pr in the last couple of months to it.\

All my links have been built this way, accept the odd natural niche related link from another site. Another words they just linked to me from their site without me even asking or knowing about it.

I'm keen to hear or learn from your experience.

I have another 10 more 1500 word posts to put up on the site over the next month or so. The format or site structure is as it is taught in the training here at WA.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Thanks for taking the time to read my question and leave an answer.

Dave

Exactly as Mikael mentions below, but have you also checked your Google Search Console to see if there are any errors, warnings or penalties etc? As your website is 2 years old, with a lot of backlinks, and used to be redirected to another website, it might take Google awhile to recover, as it might have seen the activity as spammy back then. But now you have actual content on your website, it shouldn’t take long to move up the ranks. I’m presuming you have checked GSC that the latest 10 posts you have added over the last 2 months have been indexed by Google? Are you also using Jaaxy to track your keywords and ranking?

Thanks for your reply.

Content is indexed. A couple of java errors I'm trying to resolve with AMP. No penalties to speak of.

I need to set up Jaaxy. Didn't know about it. Is that part of the premium service?

I had 26 impressions for my web pages today according to my GSC. Have had 4 clicks this week with a 2.7% CTR in the last 7 days. It's a start.

It is impossible to say how many blog posts you need to get traffic. And traffic is a broad term - do you mean 10 visits per day or thousands of visits per day.

If you mean thousands per day, you should expect a lot more than 20 posts.

Overall, it is just impossible to give an exact number as it depends on so many different things like the quality of your content, the competition in the niche, if you promote the content or not, how good are you at optimizing them, how good you are at keyword research, etc.

Some people might see some traffic after 20 or fewer posts and others might have to write 100+ posts to start seeing a bit of traffic.

Thanks for your answer. I'm running a small ad on facebook for 3 dollars a day. So far I'm getting 40+ visits a day from the ad. I've had a couple of clicks from my Instagram and Pinterest page also.

I was really asking to see about 3 to 5 visits a day from google at first.

My competitors don't have content like I do. They are typical Ecom stores. So little content with a picture of a product.

for the traffic you are asking it is very likely it is possible with 20 posts or less. But again it all depends on the other things I mentioned.
