    Hello, for a long time I have been trying to create a solid website and publish it. I try to devote a lot of time to it but I usually do not have enough.
    And here the question is whether creating a single-page-only page can produce an effect? It seems that multi page is a better solution, however, is single page doomed to failure in search engines and SEO?
    My site will be on one topic, only bookmakers. The content and review will be generally quite a lot of content, arranged in tabs and similar tools, a lot of text will be visible immediately.
    I would like to create such a website because I realized that in the convention in which it plans to do so, in other words translating websites into other languages in the case of multipage, this can be unmanageable, including translators and many others. In the case of a single page, this seems to be a simpler.

    23 years ago, you could create a one page site, point a few links to it, and within a few days it'd rank on the first page of some of the search engines. One page sites don't work today.

    Can you create a single page to deal with a topic / issue / subject that the visitor wants answered?
    Or would two pages, five pages, 10 pages do it better?

    If you CAN manage it on a page then there is a chance - but I expect that Search Engine algos will still punish the site with low rankings for not meeting their criteria and will consider it "low content" even if that is unfair.

    I've been working on a new slots site for some time now. It was supposed to go "live" months ago, but... with the way Google is, and more so, what players expect these days with the mind boggling array of slots out there (approx 3,157+), I could hire 10 ad copy writers full-time, and it still wouldn't be enough information on all these slots. Not to mention the related casino reviews etc., etc. I'm not a spring chicken anymore; can't work 16 hour days, for weeks on end.

    Besides, I'm not hungry like a tiger anymore. Though, even if I was, trying to throw together a "slots" site with the content that's needed these days to compete, I'd be sitting here till the cows-come-home and still be looking at a mountain of work.

    Long story short, I've trashed the idea, and instead have focused on another niche. It will still require a lot of decent, quality and factual content, but it's something I can work on. It is realistic. Something that's doable for me.

    A one page site, is a waste of time. If it worked, everyone would be doing it!

    So the comments show that creating one page that achieves success is not easy.
    when I publish my site, I will show it here soon, after the commentaries I am skeptical of this project but it's hard to start again after such a long work on this project.
    At the moment I have 14,000 words (half of which is hidden in tabs) on the site, review, descriptions and other texts (I wrote myself)
    And do you see any few advantages of this type of pages over the classic ones except for easy management?

    If you have that many words, why limit it to just one page? Surely more specific pages would be better?

    In all honesty you would be the SEO master if you are able to get organic traffic with one page (dont even try).
    However, a 1 pager would be good for converting purposes.

    I can not paste links but on youtube there is a movie with a google comment on one page and it does not look like a bad idea

    try it if you want, but it won't work, or convert. who's going to read through 14,000 words on one page?

    Maybe for a small niche you could get some results with a few pages, if you want to go big then your going to need a website with hundreds of pages and regular fresh content.

    Use the style/functionality of a single page site to push your top converting programs and most important info, but build up pages beyond that (and link to them), this will help you be liked more by Google.

    Actually you can rank with one page Turkish site:) but you won't be able to earn from this traffic and it won't take a long time to be banned:)
    So, in certain countries, maybe yes

    Your visitors will get lost on such a page, simplicity is the best! A visitor should understand what is where in 3-5 seconds.

    Often, simplicity is a minus. The fact is that simplicity implies elementarity, clarity. But the user who comes to your site is different. To whom it will be interesting to read briefly about what he is looking for (quickly find a solution) and another will go deeper but will not receive a decent answer on a small site. It is very important to build content in the right way - which will respond to user requests to the maximum and in detail.

    14,000 words is a bit much. I would break it up somehow.
    That said, we have 10k+ word pages on our site, but I think in the latest G-algo updates they have been penalized somehow.

    A one-page site does not expect much text. The main task is for the user to find what he came for and all the other necessary data. The design of a one-page site should not confuse, but rather, keep the user on the site and encourage him to perform the target action. It seems to me with 14,000 words it will be problematic.
