On my website I am only displaying 20 posts for visitors, when they scroll down it loads more. I want to know if will affect the ranking of my website in a negative way if I load, for example, 100 posts for search engines.

I am not worried much about the loading time as I am loading only text (really small posts). I would really appreciate any advice.

The proper way to do this, because it is good accessibility, is to have your page load showing the 20 posts you normally show. Under it have a link to show more which takes you to a page showing more results. This makes your content available to everybody. No JavaScript required.

Then use JavaScript to remove the link to show more posts when the DOM loads but before the document displays. Then have your code add more posts as a user scrolls as normal.

Good accessibility/SEO and good user experience. Win-win.
