I've been inspired. My journey to 100k+ words by Sept 14th 2020.

    I've been reading a fair few posts around similar topics over the past couple of days, and I've been inspired.

    I'm starting my own journey today. Well I started previously, but I'm putting a figure on it today. I previously read on BHW that Google doesn't see you as an authority site until you have 100k+ words on your page, so the journey begins.

    P.s. I've made some good progress so far, on nearly 20k, and my site/ store is only a couple months old.

    I just wanted some accountability and progress updates, to keep me on track. I also wanted something to look back at, to document my journey. As you can see, my organic views at the moment is literally 2-3 a day, so nothing. This is OK, as my site and blog is new, and most of my pages haven't been indexed yet. I'm hoping the 20k words I've published start to create some traffic.

    I'll keep you updated.

    P.s. I'm actually aiming for 120k words, so 100k more, but either will be fine. My wife and I are going travelling on Sept 14th 2020, so this is the deadline.

    Wish me luck!

    Good job so far! How do you not be a perfectionist when it comes to writing? I can take days sometimes when I feel unhappy with how I presented a topic or idea

    Thanks @Mr Schneebly I appreciate your kind words, and thanks for following my thread. It's difficult, no doubt!

    I'm always unhappy with my articles, and always feel like I can do more. The last article (one before this one) was 1700 words, on the benefits of protein. I genuinely could have probably written another 1k words easy. In time, I'll probably go back and add more.

    The way I see it is... yes, my articles could be more, but they're still also better and more informative than 95% of the poor 500 word articles on the web. This helps me, and give me motivation to keep going, but also not to be a perfectionist. I'd rather have 100 very good articles on the web, than 20 perfect ones.

    You can always go back and add more, in my opinion.

    Good luck, writing is hard, I've written more than 100.000 words in a few years timeframe. Research is very important to get ideas, and you have to make writing a habit and with practice it will get easier.

    Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate it! Great work on your writing, also.

    I agree. Although health and fitness is my passion, and I feel like I have most of the knowledge in my head already, so I don't find it that difficult.

    But you're right, you can always research more, and get better.

    More than anything, I'm interested to see how my organic visitors grow with more content!

    Last week: Total of 10 organic views. So long to go, but woke up feeling motivated. One of the threads that motivated me in here to start my own journey just hit 1k organic views in the last month!! That's my goal :) @pleb1

    Another really good day today. On the face of it, only added 500 words. But, this doesn't tell the true picture.

    Atm we have two categories, and there was no writing on either of the pages, just products. 2 x 500 words has been written on each.

    I need WP Count pro version, to show this haha! If anyone can hook me up, let me know ;)

    Ok ok, just hit 20k+ words, 21,561 to be exact. And my longest blog post so far, at 2163 words. Decent going. Probably won't do much more writing today, but looking to get the one unpublished blog on here published by end of the week, push me up to 23k or so.

    Sorry not trying to de-motivated you. But writing LOTS of words is not gonna make you authority.

    Writing Quality articles is the first step, of course.

    Next, you need Quality links.

    Once your articles rank, people start to share it and will attract natural links.

    More and more of peoples share it and attract many natural links, especially the quality ones, you can start called your website authority.
