    Does a word count a big factor to make your blog panda proof? I just encountered a blog that accepts guest posts and one of its guidelines is an article with 600 - 700 word count. After submitting my article, he replied and reject it stating that my posts should be 700 word above. :headache:

    We all know that many internet users still loves short but rich content but I don't understand the hype of some blogs that requires a minimum 700 sometimes 1,200 word articles. They don't accept 500- 600 word articles even the article is properly outlined and has rich information. Does an article with 400 to 600 word posts make your blog vulnerable to Panda?

    I don't think so. Lots of 100 words or so articles ranked up well because its domain authority is great!
