    can someone explain to me why a 500 word post on a pbn site is better than a few words?

    does google apply more "link juice" to a link if its surrounded by contextual words

    which brings me to my other question..

    is it beneficial to sprinkle LSI keywords and other related stuff to the pbn article? does that boost relevancy maybe?

    5000 words is better than 500 words.

    LSI is good anytime.

    Google loves content but you're right. One word in size 50 font is the perfect amount then. Maybe just your exact match anchor in all caps. Why bother with images as well? Just a white blank page with one word. Nailed it!

    I'm just trying to figure stuff out.. because why do Sape links work so well when all they are is just some anchor text on the bottom of some completely unrelated site..

    Don't treat it as a pbn.

    Do what you would to your regular site.

    Because the domains have good link profiles, which means the domains have a lot of link juice. That link juice will flow to your site. If that same link was in the body of a article it would pass even more link juice then the footer link.

    The more relevant the article is to your money site the better.

    I Read a moz study before that the optimal length of content was 2000 words they did a study over all keywords and #1-10 rankers and found the average amount was 2000 the closer you got to #1. Now this could all be just a coincidence since better content lately has been ranking higher and the more the content and better it is the more natural backlinks you may get back as apposed to a piece of content with say 200 words.

    Now when we speak about a pbn the whole conversation is usually what do I do to make my blog network look as natural as possible so google doesent find it. If your looking at it from this point of view 15 500 word articles with 2 backlinks per article starts to look a bit like a blog network. We can only hypothesis on how google found all the blog networks last time around but if you want to stay safe I would vary my article lengths maybe make a few 1000 worders and a few 500 worders etc. But definitely don't cover the site in 250 word articles with 2 backlinks per article. That looks like a big footprint for Hi im a blog network.

    Also this is all just opinion based, I have a pbn and havent had any google slaps but im pretty paranoid with it and try to make it look natural as possible.

    100% agreed. 2k+ words from a natural article has more LSI (also ranks for more KW's).

    500 words is the MINIMUM, otherwise Google will laugh at you, silly goose.

    Sometime 300 word content will rank on top.. You have to use 300, 500, 700 and 1000+ words content to make your site more natural.

    There have been numerous case studies that confirmed that longer posts with tons of pics,vids,OBL's to relevant sites, boost ranking. For PBN, 300 words is fine - not for money site.

    First of all, the quality of content is more important than the word counts. It brings good visitors for your site. Even 500+ word count (PBN) ranks for more KW's (We have to focus on the theme which should be short and sweet.). So rather choosing the number of words, go for quality.

    I use 2000+ words for each article on my money site and 1000+ words for my travel blog, web 2.0 pbn articles from 400 to 800 words, all factual content that I have compiled and rewritten from various sources. I use text, images, infographics and you tube videos for the pbn articles, mix it up.

    We have experimented a bit with content length. Longer LSI content with images + relevant alt tags tend to give better results.

    400-600 words content is considered standard content for site or for pbn.

    I agree PBN can be 300-600 words. Moneysite articles should be 1k to 2k.

    If the article covers the subject well, Google will see it as a reliable source. The more LSI/related keywords it has, the better link for your money site.
