As a provider of content writing services, I am always on the lookout for the trends in SEO. Recently, I stumbled upon two articles discussing the trends in SEO for 2017. I noticed that both have a completely opposite stance when it comes to content quantity and its effect on SEO. One article argues that long-form or those with 3000+ words will continue to perform better in the search results. It asserts that long-form contents have a higher number of social shares, more inbound links, and better online visibility. These claims are backed by data which shows that the top results in Google are those with long-form contents. However, the second article emphasizes the importance of per word value compare to the number of words found in the content. It says that content density prioritizes function over form by using fewer words with the same value. It focuses on giving as much information as possible in fewer words to appeal to readers whose attention span is getting shorter. What are your thoughts on these? Is it going to be long-form or content density?
