If I have a 1100 word post should I show it all on 1 Wordpress post, or should it be broken up. One thousand or more words is a lot of jabbering on. Should I put it all on one post or should I spread it out over a couple of pages.

Is there an average amount of text that won't scare people away when they see it.

I am adding pictures and even threw in some Adsense in the middle of the article to split it up but it still looks like a heck of a lot of writing to me.

What do you think, is there a approximate number of words per post on a single webpage.

Thanks for considering my question.

Well if it is that long. than you have to make it interesting, so it can get reader attention.

Divide it in heading, sub headings, main heading with h1 tag, sub heading with h2 tag, little colors, pictures, and a video if its available.

Above than 500 words, considered as Boring.

I agree, 500 words is about right. Why are all these SEO guys telling me to go with huge articles. According to Google the average person spends about 7 minutes on my site. Sounds good but only a few people come.
Do you think moving to a new page at around 500 words is a good idea.
Thanks for responding.

I would go with around 500 words for short posts, and 1000 words for longer posts that are more interesting and useful.

No its doesn't matter if it is 1100 words long, I've even seen 2200+ words post but with interesting writing skills and funny words that do not let the reader to feel boring.

I once read a 7000 word long article in one sitting. Just depends on how interesting your content is and how much value you are offering in it, but definitely include pictures and if its something you're teaching it helps to tell the reader to actually "Take a break for 2 mins" or something like that.
Good luck. :)

keep is as short as possible. not more than 400 of words. I read some of researches that people are spending not more than 5 minutes per read. so don't be too long.
