    What do you guys think is a good amount of blog posts to make on a blog each month?

    I don't have a lot of time to write blog posts so I only do them when I can so what do you think would be the minimum to make and still be looking good?

    I have a goal of at least 2-3 per week as time permits but I will try to do more if I can. So maybe a dozen as a minimum per month or there abouts.

    It's always better to have more because that gives you more results in the search websites and more things that you can post on the social media websites.

    If you have a blog that is older with more content then you can get away with less posts but if your blog is new then you should add more to help get more traffic to your blog.

    If it is older then maybe 6-8 posts each month for the minimum and if it is new then 10-15 as a minimum per month.

    More will always be the better choice but if your time is not available for more then just do what you can to at least keep it updated with new posts when you can.

    The more blog posts you make the more pages you can have in the search engine results pages and bringing in more traffic from those as well as the social media sites and other sources.

    I know that many people just don't have the time to post a lot so sometimes just making a post or two a week can at least keep your blog looking somewhat active.

    I try to post 2-3 blog posts per week on my blogs but it sometimes varies depending on how busy I am.

    If you are not having much time to write many blog posts then I think if you do 1-3 each week for the least then you will be fine probably. More is always more preferred but if you do not have time then that should be enough.

    A good amount would be the most that you are able to do based on the available time you have to write and post them. I do 3 per week as a goal with there being weeks that I do an extra 1-2 posts.

    I do do them on Tuesday, Thursday and one of the weekend days which I rotate. Then if I have time I post extras on the in-between days.

    If you can do at least 2 a week then I think that would be good enough. So perhaps 8-9 per month.

    I have seen some well ranking blogs only put up a handful of posts per month so I think that as long as your posts are high quality posts then 4-5 a month would be a good minimum to try for. Do more if you can though.

    I think you should do a minimum of 1 or 2 blog posts each week if you can. I read sometime that 2 to 3 each week should be the minimum to help get the best traffic and rankings in google.

    It really depends on how much traffic you want to get to your blog. The more posts then that means there will be more traffic to your blog since there are more reasons for people to come to your blog.

    If you are not real worried about that then at least doing 1 blog post per week would be a good target and do more if possible.

    I've been TRYING to do at least 2 a week for some time now and I have noticed a big increase in traffic since I started doing that. Before I was just doing about 1 a week.

    If you have time for more then go for it but I think 2 per week would be a good goal.

    It actually depends on you and your niche. Adding content on regular basis is very good way to create more user engagement. However, as you have said that you don't have time then you can add 2 to 3 posts per week. Make sure that you made the consistency of your posts.

    I try to do that but I have been more busy with work nowadays so I am only doing about 1 each week for now.
    I have been doing just 1 a week now and it seems like I am keeping the same amount of traffic. I thought it would go down a lot with less.

    I have been doing about 1 each week myself. You really got an increase of traffic from just doing 1 more?

    You think if you are consistent that will really make a difference?

    I always thought that just a the more posts you have on your blog then the better it is.

    More posts will always be better but at least 1 a week is better than not doing any for a long time.

    I sure have. I started trying to keep track of what my traffic is like in relation to my post frequency and on the weeks that I do 2 instead of 1 I see a noticeable increase in traffic the following week or so. One the weeks that I only do 1 I see a decrease or no change in traffic.
