Secrets about content word count you should know

1. 2400 Words is The Average Word Count of Top-Ranked pages

Longer articles are typically well-researched with plenty of data to back them up. They serve as credible sources to journalists and bloggers that link back to the article as a source.

Rather than a quick summary with one statistic, a long article takes the time to explain why and flesh out ideas. The credibility of the website that publishes the article mixed with the link juice given from other sites referencing it brings the post to the top of search engines.

Studies show that homepages with 1,000+ words bring more leads than a webpage with only 500 words. Why? The material on those web pages addresses concerns that were generally asked from clients.

 The word count wasn’t the deciding factor as much as what was actually being said.

2. Longer Copy Outperformed Short Copy by 40 Percent

In research conducted by MarketingExperiments, long articles outperformed short ones throughout a series of tests. In the 1st test, lengthy copy beat out a short copy by 40%, in the 2nd test, lengthy copy converted by 50% while short trailed, and both long and short converted equally in the third.

What can we learn from this data? Longer material provides far better ROI when the material is relevant.

Writers and designers should not hesitate about the material listed below the fold, they won’t lose their audience by making them scroll. If you have useful details that are handy to your visitors-- and consumers-- they'll stick around, and your ROI will certainly show it.

3. Google Labels 200-Word copy as Thin Content

Google’s Panda update punishes websites with thin content, or pages full of links or keyword optimizing. If your average post length is under 200 words, Google will likely be more critical of the content, and the general rule of thumb is that articles of 300 words or more are less likely to put you at risk for infringing on “thin” content.

Before the age of the Internet, writers were encouraged to prevent using 5 words when one would certainly suffice. That phrase rings true today. There’s a difference between short material and thin content.

Thin content is full of keywords, low quality, and rehashed from other sites. Short content is initial and concise and provides value to readers, not search engines.

Here are some general guidelines for social media posts.

Instagram - You are limited to use 2,200 characters and 30 hashtags. Moreover, you should be aware that only the first 125 characters are displayed and the remaining characters are truncated from the Instagram caption.
LinkedIn- 120 characters limit for headline text. You can have 2,000 characters in the summary section. The description box is limited to 1,000 characters and the title has a limit of 100 characters.
Facebook - You can't post more than 63,206 characters for posts and an 8,000 character limit is there for comments.
Twitter - Initial limit was 140 characters, but now Twitter allows up to 280 characters.
Pinterest - Limited to 100 characters for title and 500 characters limit for pin description.

So you can use our free word counter to check and track against the common web standards for Instagram, Linked In, and Facebook, etc.
