    300-3,000 depending on how I get the filler content and what I feel like the site needs.

    I just did a resource article on one of my sites of 4,000+ words which was built to provide a bundles of internal links(18), of which I'll build a bunch of links to to filter around my site.

    I personally won't go under 800 words. It's called filler, so it really should fill :p

    Look at similar content, how long is it?

    Write something longer.

    Depends on the niche but the general consensus is at least 500 words but longer the better IMO

    An article should contain minimum of 300 words. But in the general practice 700+ works much better..

    Hi hi,

    323 words for actual content and 200 filler makes a good combination.

    No under 500 words.

    Cheers,
    C.

    So my articles are around 500 words I think this is honestly a decent amount of text and it's not too long and it depends on your writing style

    You can choose different length articles like short article of about 250-350 words, medium article 450-550 words, long article 650-750 words. I think its enough but you can use longer and longest article also

    The longer the better rule doesn't always apply. Most people won't be patient enough to read longer texts and will bounce off the page as soon as they see lengthy article. I'd say 700-800 words.

    I would say since it is filler, at least 500 words.

    It totally depends on where you are submitting the content, but in general, the content should be approximately around 800- 1000 words so that search engines find it suitable as per the guidelines stated and will help the content to rank better.
