When creating a website, one of the first decisions to make is how many pages it will have. A website with too few pages can feel unfinished, while one with too many can be overwhelming. So, what is the right number of pages for a website? In this blog post, we will answer that question and more about web pages.
Is There a Minimum or Maximum Number of Pages?
Many website pages are between 10-30 pages. However, this is not a rule and there are many websites with fewer or more pages. The number of pages on your website should be based on the amount of content you have to share with your audience. It can also, depend on your goals, and your budget.
If you have a lot of content to share, then you will need more web pages. If you have a small budget, then you may need fewer pages. If your goal is to generate leads, then you will need more pages than if your goal was just to sell a product.
There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to how many pages your website should have. It depends on your specific website goals. For example, blog pages will often have more pages because they update their website with news/ information. E-commerce websites may have numerous products and product ranges to sell, as a result, they may have hundreds of product pages which naturally increases the page count of a website.
On the other hand, a brochure website would only have a few web pages because it is a service. Brochure websites may only offer a handful of services which means there isn’t enough content to have lots of pages, so they will only have a few web pages. Some examples of this would be electricians, builders, photography services, etc. These types of service websites typically don’t have extensive product or service offerings and therefore, will have fewer pages.
If you’re not sure how many pages your website should have, start by planning out the content you want to include. Once you have a good idea of the content you want to include, you can start creating a rough outline of your website. From there, you can start determining how many pages you’ll need to create to accommodate all of your content. If you’re still not sure, don’t hesitate to reach out to a web development company for help.

Do More Web Pages Mean Better SEO?
There’s no simple answer to this question – it depends on several factors, including the quality of your content, how well your pages are optimised, and how much competition you’re up against. Having more pages doesn’t necessarily improve your SEO, but it can increase the chance of being found for a variety of topics that you cover.
Of course, there’s no point in creating lots of new pages if they’re not going to be useful or interesting to your visitors. So, make sure that any new content you add is high-quality and relevant to your target audience. Don’t create low-quality web pages just for the sake of adding more web pages because you’ll end up diluting the overall content quality of your website.
