    Tier 1 :- 600 - 800 words
    Tier 2 :- 300 - 500 words
    Tier 3 :- 250 words

    Mix it up, the lenghts and quality should vary a bit, but just leave the crap for the last tier, which TBH is totally worthless anyway.

    there is no such fixed word count length

    Use mixed word count like 800, 600, 400 and even 300 words for T1, T2 and T3

    Only thing is to make sure you use unique articles

    At where you in
    If you build backlinks in guest post blogs, you need to write 1000 words for your tier 1 process. For PBN 600+ is enough.
    For tier 2 process, it's good to have 400+ words.
    And for tier 3 process, 150+ words are good.

    This one is good, however, just mix it up OP and leave the content with the lowest quality or spun articles for tier-3.

    Hi, @webhostingproviders!

    I'd say there's no standard ideal word count for the articles for those three tiers. We will all have a preferred word count requirement.
    When you search on Google, you will find that many blogs suggest that the longer the article, the better it is.
    It's not really so much on the length only but also on its substance. If there's not much to say, might as well cut the article at 300 words.

    For my clients who are using my content writing services, I recommend at least 1,000 words for articles. If their budget is tight, 500 words will do.

    I always aim for the following figures in which regards the word counts for each tire:

    Tier 1 :- 1000 words
    Tier 2 :- 500-700 words
    Tier 3 :- 200-300 words

    Of course, this is not exact data, these numbers always vary.

    1000 words is the minimum length for ranking a post, especially in competitive niches. Thinner content simply does not have the meat behind it in order to be in the top 4 results.

    There's no standard word count when it comes to writing articles. What's important is to make sure that you're only posting well-written, well-structured, grammatically excellent, and useful article to your target audience. Adding images and videos is a great idea in able to maintain your viewer's attention and make them stay longer on your website. Badly written lengthy articles will not be read all the way through and will only make your viewers leave your site.

    I use these usually. 1000+ for tier one, for tier two use normal 500 word articles and vary the word length, and tier threes can be shorter.
