    • 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

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.
