Too Many Indexed Pages Will Lead to a Manual Review
Posted: April 21, 2013 by Alex Chan
Certain website owners, like those of newspaper websites, have a concern when uploading archive pages. Some newspapers can have an archive list that contains hundreds of thousands of pages. So when uploading them, should the owners upload them all at once or in stages? This issue was specifically presented by John Mueller from Switzerland on Google Webmaster Help.
According to Matt Cutts, Head of Webspam at Google, uploading the entire archive of 200 thousand pages in the same time or in stages will be either way acceptable to Google. Goole has the capacity process the data no matter how it was uploaded. Usually the manual webspam team reacts when Google encounters a website that has a lot of pages ranking on one site.
Cutts offers an advice to all website owners that plan to upload a large number of pages, to do so in stages, gradually. Usually by uploading thousands of pages online, owners cannot guarantee that all pages possess high quality. When the time of uploading does not make any difference, it is always better to upload stuff slowly so it won't trigger any of Google's alarms.
