3,457 Words in One Article - Is It Enough?
Hello my friend,
I would like to ask you a question today. But first, let me tell a quick story.
When I first started writing articles to my blog, my minimum was 500 words per article.
Then I realized 700 words per article is better.
Some professionals said me that 1,000 words is better.
Then Carson said 1,500 words is better.
So, during the last 6 months 95% of my articles have been over 1,500 words and they seem to get more traffic than shorter ones I guess.
Neil Patel said that his minimum is 2,000 words per article but usually writes 3,000-7,000 words.
Eric Cantu, the guy who achieved success on Wealthy Affiliate, said on one of his blog posts here than he writes usually long "Best of" articles that drive tons of traffic and make sales.
Now I just published my longest article with the title, "15 Best Ways to Learn Spanish Online". It's 3,457 words and the writing took almost 5 hours.
It didn't get yet ranked high on Google but I'm going to follow if it will.
What Is Your Opinion - Are +3,000 Articles Good?
Writing a 3,000-word article takes twice as much time as writing a 1,500-word article.
Which one do you prefer? Writing two 1,500-word articles or one 3,000-word articles?
What has given you the best results if you think about the results compared to your invested time?
