Okay, thanks for the advice, will do some research about this! Choose a niche you are engaged in or a niche that you at least have some knowledge in. If you are not engaged in the things you are publishing, it will become much more difficult to see success. I have a few writers and one of them is from blackhatworld via @Julie85 For normal information articles without a lot of competition, I go for 1000 words. Would say that 90% of the articles are 1000 words and the rest is everything between 1500-7000 words. For "Best Of" articles I'm usually going for 3k-5k words.
