Important points for SEO professionals and Webmasters
Matt Cutts denied that a number of pages have any effect on ranking. This means that smaller website can also do well in search ranking against sites that have thousands or millions of pages.
Matt’s answer also clarifies that having more backlinks increase Page Rank (Even after Penguin 2.1 update). However, one point he made that having higher page rank increases the chances of Google goes deep in your site and to index more web pages. But, for that one need to point various links to individual pages and not home page only.
