    I agree with your theory. I add on my blog regular posts with size between 700 and 2200 words. Can't compare with Moz, but I don't go with the 500 words anymore.

    It makes sense. 500 words is only a few paragraphs. How can anyone expect to engage their audience in such a short time when every other big player in the game is providing 4-5 times as much information.

    From what I understand, he's only been doing his podcast for a short time. Maybe a year or so? It still stands that the majority of his revenue comes from affiliate sales directly from his site.

    That's not the point though. It's pretty clear from the rest of the info provided that longer posts seem to be more effective than shorter text.

    I'd say anything shorter than 800-1000 words is really bad, not just for its informative value but also seo wise. Ideally 1200-1500 words of content on a page should be good enuff

  • I have actually polled my readers. Most if them prefer shorter (less than 700 words) posts as opposed to the longer ones I've provided. It may have to do with the demographic I write for but most of the comments came back with reasons based on time.

    Not that an additional 200-500 words should make a difference but it seems it does. Then again I have found that if I push for a longer article content seems to get a little more repetitive. Maybe that's on me but I have always preferred shorter, more concise articles.

      That niche sounds awesome. You probably save a ton of time / money because of it.

    That’s an untold truth. Problem is many IMers just know they need content, not “what type” and sometimes it’s also about the price per article (which usually means a 500 word piece) that becomes a deciding factor. I guess, its mostly lack of awareness.

    I would think the ideal length for content would vary depending on the type of market you're actively involved with.

    However, no matter what, Google has made it clear that they prefer websites with in-depth content over ones that don't.
