    Hi, I got a 22k words article written. Now, I am not sure whether to post it as single article or multiple articles.

    - The article offer detailed information on the topic. It has many sub topics like basics, strategies, doe's don'ts, advanced strategies etc.

    Please suggest.

    I would break it down into 10 primary keywords and interlink them like crazy. Not only is 22k words too much for anyone to read, it's not likely to share much intent. Split it so that each piece addresses a specific issue. Do your kw research to see what else is ranking for similar terms.

    I'd definitely break it up. No one's gonna read an entire 22k word article these days, not even half....regardless of how good your content is.

    Definitely break it up into 2-3k pieces. Some parts of your content might be more interesting to your audience and some parts might not be. Chopping it up will give you the ability to rank different pages for each piece of content, and therefore give you more certainty that people can find what they are looking for.

    Multiple articles, if you can't even read a 22k post.

    Don't bore your readers to death. Divide the articles into chunks of 1500-2000 words and post them as separate articles with proper interlinking between them. This will also help you SEO wise.

    Break it up, you can make an entire site out of that content. This will be much more effective, especially if you can split the content into relevant sub-topics.

    Ok thanks for the suggestions guys. I'll create about 10 articles from that article. I am still expert in internal linking. I will check some threads on bhw for that.

    If the content is unique and you sort out that internal linking well, you will surely rank (ofc depending on the niche) :)

    Just split it up into 2k+ each. No one is going to read a 22k article and it provides no benefit that way.

    You've got 7-12 articles worth of material there.
    If the quality is good you'll get people reading various pieces.

    22 k are crazy. No one will read the article unless it is really interesting and exciting.

    I'd go for 3 articles max, 2 articles min.

    Article 1 - xxx.com/yyy
    Part 2 - xxx.com/yyy/2 OR xxx.com/yyy/some-keyword
    part 3 - xxx.com/yyy/3 OR xxx.com/yyy/some-other-keyword
