Do you think the growth rate of your site, or the lack of thereof makes a significant effect on rankings?
Suppose you have a site with 2K unique articles and you can either add a few articles per day, or put it all up at once.
I know it's reasonable to assume that gradual growth would be preferred, but the question is how much difference does this actually make?
Suppose in both cases you do the same amount of seo work to add links etc.
All at once may sound spammy, but who cares?
I've added 3500+ posts to one of my sites a few weeks ago (had ~750) and the immediate effect was 20%+ more traffic, so...
I don't think it hurts to add new content quickly.
Google is slow at indexing new content anyway.
Plus, 2k pages is almost nothing in today's e-commerce environment.
Hmm, I don't know about that... Appendicitis Symptoms was a lot harder to develop than I Howd?

I don't think you would hurt yourself at all dumping thousands of pages or blog posts all at once.
From experience it doesn't hurt
