    hi guys

    quick question...

    I have been writing some articles for my new authority site but for a few keywords, I cant write more than 250 words!! I just cant find any more info to put down. I am writing good informational content so I dont really want to go over the same points and fill it with fluff.

    Would a 250 word article be good for a whitehat authority site or does google hate small articles? Are they no good for ranking?

    Please help

    Put your article in points form and then explain a couple of lines about each point. That way you can increase the quality + length of your articles.

    Don't do 500 words like everyone else...it just isn't enough unless you aren't going after competitive terms. Do 700 minimum, and it really isn't that hard to write a lot of words, you just have to ramble on as much as you can. Just from this post alone I have written a total of 56 words..

    There is no exact lenght but you should compile them to have a few more lengthy articles

    thanks everyone. Some of my articles are over 1000 words long but I just dunno if I could make these any longer. The articles in question are about how much something is eg: 'xxx xxxxx cost' I have broken them to reasons why it costs so much but cant think of anything else lol

    500 would be the ideal length.....just do some research before writing
