What do you think is the maximum word count for a post? (blog or forum post).
Hello fellow freelancers,
It seems that most of the posts on this community discussions are anything between 50 and 300 words or so. - We obviously have several posts which are way more than that too, but I would say that the average post are something about 100 words long here on SEOClerks community discussion.
How many words are enough? - What is the maximum word count in your opinion?
The amount of words you're using will always be different. It depends on who the writer is, the writing style and it depends on the subject. - But there has to be some sort of "line" for this, or is there?
I've seen a few blog posts on various blogs and in different forums that are up to 20,000 words long. - That's seriously like an entire ebook or perhaps even two. - Well, it's at least like a report of some sort.
What would you do with a 10,000 or perhaps a 20,000 word long post?
A: Publish the post as it is.
B: Publish the posts in parts? (Part 1,2,3,4,5,6)?
I bet that most would go with option B. - And if and when you do, how do you decide where to cut the content into one part? - Do you just cut it somewhere at random, or do you cut it when you come to a question or something like that?
