Word Count

Word Count is exactly what it sounds like – the number of words of your article.

The best thing you can do is write a good article – an article that thoroughly, and completely covers the topic you are writing about.

However, search engines like longer form content, and one easy-to-follow SEO best practice is to make sure that the article you are writing has more words than the other articles you are trying to rank above (aka all the articles on Page 1 when you search the keyword).

Word count is also an important concept to understand because most companies pay per word.

If you are a hired to write blog content, word count will usually be provided for you – but if you are ever unsure about what the word count of your article should be you can always just look at the word count of the top ranking articles and get an average.

Then, just make your article somewhere slightly above that average!

�� Feeling Generous?

Amazon™ pays commissions if I refer people to them, and that person buys something (anything) over the next 24 hours…

So if you click on one of the affiliate links below buy some crap �� you need/want – I’ll get a commission from Amazon™ – you’ll get a great excuse to buy that ‘thing’ you’ve been wanting!

You don’t even need to buy the actual items linked here to support this channel…

You can just buy yourself something you’ve been wanting, or do your weekly shopping!

(i know you’ve been trying to squeeze that last little bit of toothpaste from the tube for like 3 months now… it’s time for a new one)
