    Let's say I'm in Mobile niche.

    Is it better to write 2000-3000 words post and include "how to choose phone", "where to buy", "how to use it", "some phone reviews" etc.

    Or is it better to divide these " " into smaller posts of 300-500 words. Like "how to choose phone" with 500 words and other post "where to buy" with 350 words.


    Thank you guys,
    Vasary

    I'd go with the longer post man. High quality long posts will triumph low quality, short articles.

    Of course it's up to you though. If you can find some low-hanging fruit keywords for each short post then that could work in your favor as well.

    Overall just make sure your content is unique.

    Longer post is recommended especially when you're into mobile niche.

    You should always try to be as efficient as possible. Look at your top 3 competitors for each term. If they're writing 3K+ articles... target another niche.

    If their backlinks are weak, write however much you want just get the damn links. It's all relative.

    I started "Let's say I'm in mobile niche", which means it was just example. I have completely different niche, I just wanted to know long post vs short posts.

    I prefer longer posts for money sites. Doing it random will be better though.

    I prefer a combination of long and short posts.
    For example make bigger ones for review post and some parts in it like in your own example.
    Create some short ones about some software or other hardware like powerbanks

    I'd go with longer posts and then short comments on the post.

    Depends on the niche and the keyword.

    Also short quality post better than long crap post - so I guess it depends on your budget as well.

    I would go with a long post any day. Maybe even shoot for 5000 words or more if possible.
