JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

I mean, just having more pages doesn’t mean that those pages are lower quality. If you’re taking existing content and you’re kind of diluting it by splitting it into separate pages without adding additional quality to those pages, then that’s of course a kind of diluting things. But if you’re adding content that’s really relevant to your site, then that’s not something you should worry about. You shouldn’t say, well, I have this really great article that I’d love to put online, but I’m kind of worriedthat it’ll create too many pages for my website. If it’s something great that you think works well for your users, works well for your website, then by all means put that online. That’s not something where I try to hold anyone back on that. But if you’re just taking the existing content you have and say, I have 500 pages. I’ll turn that into 2,000 pages because more pages means more visibility in search, then that’s probably not going to happen. That’s more something where we’ll take those 500 pages and it’s kind of diluted among 2,000 pages, so it doesn’t make those individual pages much more relevant in search.
