Has anyone tested long articles vs. short articles on site for rankings?

    I keep hearing that articles/posts should be 700 words plus. So do small articles say 300 words hold any weight? I do one big one 1000+ words once a week but if I was able to do smaller ones-say 300 words I would probably update it almost every day. Has anyone tested short articles vs. long articles?

    Longer ones have the chance to pick up on more keywords and phrases then shorter ones. The last time I was really into a site with articles, the majority of my traffic came from keywords and phrases I was not ranking for.
