Does having more pages make it easier to rank?

many pagesWell, yes and no. Many webmasters and SEO may assume that the more pages you have on your site the easier it is to rank for anything. But, according to Google’s Matt Cutts, that is no necessarily the case. More web pages do not equate to easier rankings for a target keyword. However, having many pages on a site can help rankings by getting deeper crawling and attracting more links for those pages and therefore passing page rank around the site. Having more pages on a site also gives you better chance to rank better for more targeted keywords of individual pages.
