    How Much Homepage Content for Best SEO Results?

    I just recreated my homepage at http://greenhybrid.com and am debating how many Hybrid News feeds (blog-style in the middle) I should display. I started with five, which fit well, but I'm starting to think that 10 would be better for search engines... more content. Even with 10, the page is around 30k (excluding images). More, less, or stay at 10?

    10 is good. You could do 5 if you want. I wouldn't go higher though.

    Off topic but... I would mix up your Adsense unit types a bit.

    Do you mean image vs. text or the size? Why do you say that?

    my theory is the more content the better. it allows guests and bots find content much quicker and faster.

    Cut down the number of news feeds to 3 or 4 total and add a introductory paragraph before the news feeds.

    Also, don't use two adsense ads on each side like that. It makes you middle content less of the focus. I know you want to make money off adsense, but doing it that way is going to be a turn off for visitors.

    Why cut them down? Also, by an intro paragraph do you mean an editorial summary, etc by me?
