    I just finished creating a footer article for one of my projects. I haven't done this before, but I see many people do this, so it might be helpful.

    However, I ended up with a 1400 words article. It's a real informative article, and it's not keyword stuffed. Are 1400 words too much?

    I think it might be too much because it's in the footer tag, maybe I should place it as it is in the homepage, and not in the footer, so it doesn't show on each and every page of my site?

    Thanks!

    Word count is not a deciding factor as long as you are providing engaging, valuable and entertaining content that makes your readers think, "Is this writer talking to me only or what?"

    I am a visual person. Would you mind PMing me the URL so I can give my opinion whether it's best to put it on the home page or at the footer?

    Personally I would keep a 1400 word article for the blog and make your footer articles 200 - 300 words. They just need to give a brief description of what the user will find on the page, maybe a link to the most popular item in that category.

    For sure you should put it just on one site eg. homepage becase of duplicate content.

    If this is useful and doesn't look like SEO text/placement you can do it as long as possible but the best option is to have more shorter unique texts on different pages than one longer.
