    Hi

    I have been informed that if I write 1500 words blog on my blog website that will help in SEO - Long Term. Is that true?

    Please help.

    Thanks.
    Sharon

    Sure, someone will come in and talk about how so&so reviewed 19.6billion websites, and it proves beyond a doubt that long content rules.
    But if you are writing, just to write, just fluff, then it wouldn't truly help.
    Write enough to cover the topic, nothing more, nothing less.
    Don't just write for google, because you'll struggle to convert, write for you audience.

    Longer articles generally rank better, you can even go for a 4k long article :)

    Long articles rank better but you must not focus only on 1500 words articles but diversify your posts with even 300, 500, 750 words etc. That way your website will look more natural to se. On longer articles you can target more keywords but you also need short media rich articles as well.

    Important thing to note here: 1500+ words is always better, and will help you rank, but quality over quantity.

    It's a mistake to try to game the system just by generating 1500 clickbaity words: spend the extra time and money to have a really valuable, original article, and you'll be served well in the long term!

    Sure, a well written 1,500 word article will definitely help with ranking if it is optimally formatted. Unfortunately, there are a lot of 1,500+ articles that are boring, needlessly repetitive, and lack real depth.

    Thats true. If no one stops to reads the article because it is boring, spammy or stuffed with keywords then they will just leave your site and this will affect your bounce rate negatively. Quality content is always best, if its longer than 1500 words, that helps also

    Hey Sharon,

    You'll want to make use of that multi-quote button, else you might get accused of pumping your numbers. Yes, it is generally believed that longer form content does better in the search engines, but for every rule, there are a million exceptions.

    Your best starting point is to see what others in your niche are ranking with, then just try to outdo them. I believe @mickyfu said something, in jest of course, to the effect of: 1,500 word articles are OK, but a 12,000 word article is better.

    There are very few rules in SEO, mostly just theories. You have to test the theories. And don't hold the rules too close to your heart because they're one Google update away from being a Google crime.

    That's another good point. If it's obvious that your post is just a giant wall of crappy text that doesn't present more than surface information, visitors will leave almost immediately. You can make longer blog posts work but interlinking is also helpful if you are looking to keep readers engaged as well as improve your bounce rate.
