Time Stamped Show Notes:

  • 00:28 – Today’s topic: How to Rank a 10-Page Website
  • 00:40 – Neil picked 10 pages because a lot of people have small websites
  • 00:45 – A 500-page website is easier to rank
    • 00:56 – The more text you have on the page, the more likely you are to rank
  • 01:03 – A 10-page website can still rank but it will never get as much traffic as a Wikipedia
    • 01:10 – A small website should focus on link building and outreach
  • 01:14 – Make sure your content is detailed and thorough
  • 01:18 – Brian Dean of Backlinko started with only a handful of pages website
    • 01:33 – The quality of his content is high
  • 02:00 – Review Skyscraper Technique
  • 02:10 – Groove HQ and Help Scout both started at the bottom
  • 02:19 – Look at linkable assets
  • 02:48 – “Look for a spin that can work out there”
    • 02:59 – Slowly expand when your website starts getting traffic
  • 03:14 – Marketing School is giving away a free 1 year subscription of Crazy Egg which is a visual analytics tool
  • 04:14 – That’s it for today’s episode!

3 Key Points:

  1. People who have small websites can still rank their websites, but their websites will never have the traffic of the big players.
  2. Create detailed, high-quality content that will solidify your website.
  3. As your website gains traffic, add more pages—grow it in a controlled, consistent way that you can manage.
