    I am not a fan of single page sites. Here are the things needed to have a website that Google will not consider "thin content".

    1. Index page with at least 500 words on it
    2. one product or service page
    3. Terms and Conditions
    4. Privacy Policy
    5. About us and/or Contact Us
    6. Phone number in text format (not in an image)
    7. Address on the contact us / About us page
    8. robots.txt and sitemap.xml files

    That's the minimum for a website

    Disclaimer: The more content the better on any site

      The format for this Meetup is informal discussion and sharing rather than a formal presentation. This makes it very difficult to stream the content in a meaningful way.
