Who can answer this important question? As a blogger myself, I am desperate to be on top, but how? Can I be on top by writing 1500 word article? Can I be on top by just writing short article but straight to the point?
I read lots of articles every day, especially for Bubblews.com, my favorite social blogging network that pays writer. Honestly, I love reading shorter articles than longer ones (not less than 400 characters though). Why? I am on a hurry. While writing this one, I need to prepare myself for my day job.
So do writing longer articles help readers in a hurry?
No. I may skip it. I want a straight forward answer for my question. As for entertainment, I won’t read longer articles to entertain myself as I have more stuff to do.
But do shorter articles rank on search engines?
Yes. For a 10-month experience, shorter articles on Bubblews.com rank on the first few pages of Google. Aside from that, most of them were not well-structured in terms of SEO. What it teaches us?
- Google and major search engines do not only indexed content based on length.
- Google and major search engines have improved their indexing process – they understand the message of the articles, they do not indexed by keywords anymore.
- People are in a hurry, yes, I am.
