    I am manually creating some backlinks to a blog post with Web 2.0 sites. I am getting about 100 words per article but the link is there.

    Do I really need 350+ words on the Web 2.0 sites? The target article on the money has 350+ words.

    The longer the better. I personally would go for 1000+ words if im really trying to build a quality site.

    To answer you question,do you haveto, no you don't have to do anything, now should you? Yes.

    It depends. It's hard to fill 500+ words of stuffing about some boring subject or recent news, but as you can see on wikipedia most technical topics will easily accommodate articles with thousands of words. It just depends really.... If you're just content farming, a site with tons of too short articles will definitely look sketchy.

    If you have a hard time writing content, buy Dragon Naturally Speaking (you can get it on ebay for $35). Go to article directories and paraphrase the articles with Dragon and make them your own. Super easy, I can bust out (5) 500-800 word articles in 1 1/2 hours.

    100 words are too less.
    Why don't you take it for a manual spin? Find articles in related topics - give them your own twist and embed your links!

    Of course, then there is factor called "time" :)

    i prefer 1000 words.. i prefer 1000 words for my clients too... but not all my clients are rich so I also offer them 400 - 500 words articles. But 100 words is too less for any good.

    I don't know why people say to go up to 1000 words. Just create 1 article around 400 words and then use a software to manually spin it [Chimp Rewriter is free and good too]. This way you can use 1 article for many web2.0's. Don't over-complicate the things...

    Always lengthy articles recommended. You keep your money site content 600-800 Words and For Web2.0s you can go with 400+ Words articles. This will give good results.

    If you have the time , why not? Ask yourself what are you going to do with that extra free time if you saved up on that extra words? If it's nothing productive but just sitting around and surfing the web, then you have your answer.

    I personally would make articles longer than you want to. Google has wanted longer and longer articles over the years. Leapfrog ahead by making your articles extra-long.

    I would say that at least 500 words. We are looking at it as a couple articles, but I am sure you are thinking much more. Start with the 350 and get them all published and go back and add a 100 words or so. You will also be updating the freshness at the same time.
