2.2 Site structure
2.2.1 Number of pages
The general seo rule is: the more, the better. Increasing the number of pages on your

them all in the root directory of your site. Search engines consider such pages to be more
important than ones in subdirectories.
2.2.5 One page – one keyword phrase

the total search traffic for some sites
