Hello blogger, wherever you are, thank you for visiting Gudio Blog. Hopefully this simple blog can be useful for all of you or maybe it can solve the problem that you have all been discovering. For those of you who are just visiting this blog for the first time, so this Gudio Blog is a blog that discusses programming tutorials. Whether it's web, desktop or mobile, discuss tips and tricks on blogging, android and others related to technology.
In this article, I will discuss a topic such as the title above, namely "How Many Words Should Be On a Blog?". Maybe because there are still many who are confused about how many words should be in each article, so for that I try to discuss this topic. And maybe because I got an email from Google. What kind of email is that? Curious? read on the article to the end and if you wish, maybe you can share this article as much as possible to provide information to other bloggers. Okay, introductions are enough, we will immediately discuss this topic now.
How Long Are Ideal Articles Applied To Each Post?Maybe if you ask like the question above, then you will find various answers, what are actually the length of words used for each article that we post on the blog. Because Google itself does not determine the amount, CMIIW (Correct Me If Im Wrong), it's just that Google gives tips "Use more text, not just images or videos". That's one of the quotes or suggestions given by Google to me via email, because my blog doesn't get Adsense approval. But my other blog, not this blog.
After I read enough references, I tried to conclude (this is in my opinion bro, if wrong, please forgive) if we make the article depends on the interest of our blog readers and of course what articles we make on our posts. If our articles are useful and easy to read, moreover we can solve problems and provide solutions to people who visit our blog, chances are they will read our articles from the beginning until they run out even though the articles made are quite long. But I also read in one blog where he said, if our article wants to quickly index by Google, then we have to make a long article, maybe around 700 words. Remember, 700 words, not characters. Because maybe bloggers are a little confused in terms of distinguishing characters and words.
Then, what is ideally? so if in my opinion, a good and ideal article consists of 500 to 700 words in the article we posted.
What Affects?But there are some things that might affect the length or short we make an article. When we make a long article and when we make a short article.
1. Reader Interest
so maybe this is pretty important for us to pay attention to. Of course we as the author of the article, knowing which of our articles gets a lot of attention from readers, is it a long article or an article that we make short? Maybe, you as an article writer can look at the posting section on your blog page, how many users or readers respond to the article that you created. You can see, how many people read your article, how many interactions on the article you made, such as comments, share and others. Are the articles that get a lot of visits and interactions, are there a lot of words? Below is one example of my other blog, where there is one article that gets many visits and lots of interactions.
In fact, if you check the number of words in the article in the picture above, the number of words does not reach 1500, but why can the article get a lot of readers and interactions? And I can conclude, the interest of the reader.
2. What articles are made?
Maybe this factor will also affect, the number or length of articles made. If the article you created is a tutorial article or better known as "How To", maybe the article that you make will be long and have a lot of words. Because the tutorial article certainly explains in detail from the beginning to the end. Likewise with articles with topics about health and others, usually will have a large number of words and more than 2000 words. But there are also articles about "How To", which contain lots of pictures and few words, but get a lot of readers.
3. Purpose of the article made
For this, there might be a little difference, if you make an article that aims to get SEO (Search Engine Optimization), maybe the length of the article is at least 800 words.
So maybe that is the factor that affects the short length of the article you are making. Everything returns to us as the author of the article, the purpose of the article we made. Maybe also among us as the author of the article, there are types of writers who update their blogs every day with an average length of articles around 500 words, or maybe there are also types of writers who update the blog every week but with lengths that can be up to 2000 words, maybe. But usually article writers who update once a week usually write articles not one day, it could be 2 to 3 days. And of course the articles they make must also be useful.
So How Should It Be?So, below I will try to classify according to the purpose of making the article. Hopefully in the form of the table below, you will be easier to understand.
|Article Length||Article Purpose|
|75 to 300 words||This article is a short article that is suitable for discussion on a topic. Usually this type of article will rarely be shared especially for SEO purposes, it is not recommended. Of course traffic for this type of short article will be low|
|300 to 600 words||Articles with long words like this, can be said to be a standard blog that may be recommended by many other expert bloggers and maybe also will get a fair amount of shares and comments and also long articles like this that are hard to note by Google, because maybe will be considered not enough to satisfy the readers|
|750 words||articles with a number of words like this are articles with the most ideal number of words, CMIIW|
|1000 to 1500 words||long articles like this are quite long articles and quite detailed in the discussion but maybe there will be few visitors or readers of the article who comment. Because this article will certainly explain from the beginning to the end in detail, so for the reader there are no more things to ask or discuss.|
|2500 words||for those of you who write 2500 articles or even more, you are a writer with very many ideas or things written. And of course Google also likes long articles like this because it is indexed quickly|
ConclusionSo how? all depends on you again, what article did you make for? If the article I wrote is useful, you can share this article and hopefully we can all be successful people in the field that we pursue. Maybe you want to see, how many words in my article, below is the number of words contained in the article I made.
If there is an error that I made in writing this article, please forgive.Okay, see you again next time and of course with other interesting articles.
