    Depends on many factors. It could definitely work though.

    Yes, this definitely works.

    A tip: Make the posts above 800 words if you can. 3000+ words buyers guides are a real winner as well.

    I would love to see a sample too. I have been posting everyday but usually aim for 1,000 words. Today I posted my 6400 words which is already insane to me,

    It’s all about the article structure.

    For example:


    Introduction: 100-200 words.

    Describing a need for the product: 250 - 350 words.

    5 - 7 products. Each product section describing the benefits of the product (price, features, warranty, shipping etc). 300-400 words for each product.

    Bonus section with special product mentions: 150-200 words.

    Conclusion: describing why the persons needs could be met with these products & a general overview/outline of the guide. 300 words.

    That comes out to a minimum of 2100 words. This is just a general outline. I’m by no means an expert. I’ve written many buyers guides, but not a professional by any means.

    I know this seems very basic and I’m sure I’m leaving something out. That’s the basic idea, though.

    Work for what? Rank in Google?

    Well, that totally depends on the competition. If most of your competitors have 2k words articles, and you're trying to outrank them with a 300-word piece of content, that's most likely a big NO, unless you spend a shit ton of money in backlinks.

    Yep, those wordcounts still work to be ranked if you can build proper links to it. And keep the whole content interesting for the readers. 800+ words articles are always better.

    It depends on the quality of the content and the competition for the keywords. Yes it can work, but it's not a straight answer. It depends on your market. It's not about word count. It's about providing quality content. Google's tracks engagement with your site. Focus on Quality.

    If you can provide value in 400-600 words then it will pay off. If you must use 1500, then do that. Don't focus on wordcount. Focus on serving your market what they want.

    Depending on your niche, longer articles work better for SEO as well as for sales conversions

    Why do you think those old school sales pages are so long?
