Is a blog with over 2000 words still good?

Last Update: April 20, 2018

I'll be posting my first ever and honest review of Wealthy Affiliate on my website soon.

It took me more sleepless nights to finish it. I could only do it after work because I still have 8 am to 5 pm day job.


Somehow, it's tiring. I feel it as a sacrifice, but I know it's for my families future anyway. And, I hope to get out of the rat race sooner.

I'd rather take the challenge today than be miserable and live a mediocre life until my last breath.


I'm wondering why even new members coming into Wealthy Affiliate older than me have the same sentiments. Some had been working for 30 long years or more but they just started in this opportunity.

So I questioned, do I still need to wait for that long time? I don't want to end up realizing it at a later age.

There's more about life. I had to create more memories, travel and meet more amazing people.


As I write my blog this week and see the word count, it has gone beyond 2000 words. I'm quite alarmed because in the training it says over 1000, but how about over 2000, will it still leave a good impression on my readers?

At first I never thought I could reach 1000 words because I'm not even a writer.

I don't want to revise my blog just to make it shorter. I have put so much effort on it. Imagine it has 48 revisions?

Perhaps if the reader finish reading it until the end, at least they'll go with all the details they need about Wealthy Affiliate.


What do you think about that fellow WAers?

Absolutely, long-form content of over 2000 words will rank higher in Google.

JHaugland gave sound advice. 2000 word articles can be very effective.

Yes but for that range let's make an eBook out of it for the marketing effectiveness!

If you make a captivating layout with relevant illustrations 2000 words will work great. Make sure the reader doesn't get bored along the way, name the topics in a list at the top and put in teasers along the way,
Put in a call to action halfway where you ask people to sign up, and a possibility to scroll to read on and learn more for those that don't.
