How Long Should Posts Be?

Here ya go, advise from Professional Blogger Darren Rowse :
Quote:
...The biggest question I get asked though, is how long should a post be?

My answer to this is usually “write enough to be useful, and then stop”.

This, of course, means that a post can be any length, and I certainly don’t follow a set formula. You can be useful in 500 words, or you can be useful in 3000 – it all depends...

Minimum 300 words... But more than 1000 words would be a great article, I guess
Like the below one

Blog posts vary in length from a few short paragraphs to 2,000 words. If your goal is search engine traffic, longer is better. The ideal length is 600-700 words

Care to justify that? Care to explain why posts with less than that still rank well? Or are you just making excrement up to link drop your spam?

Based on what? You are just making that up and it has no basis in fact.

There is no definite length system when you write posts for your blog. Usually a post which contains minimum thousands words can describe a good information to the readers.

Average Blog post word count falls in the range between 300-500. But I agree to the suggestion mentioned above that it should be the quality where you should focus not the word count or length of the article.

I just read a study that showed the best performing posts for SEO were 1500-2000 words long. Can't remember where exactly I saw it though. Might have been KISSmetrics.

Care to explain why 500? What are you basing that on?

I thought about how much content for blog from not important , content is important in the transmission of the author to the reader , that content quality is not ?
Perhaps that's the most important thing that should be focused on , not necessarily how many characters or 500 characters.
