How Long Should A Blog Post Be

How Long Should a Blog Post Be Before You Annoy Your Reader?

One of the top questions I get asked by prospective clients is: how long should a blog post be?

It’s a fair question and one that will never have a concrete answer, simply because content marketing experts keep changing their mind as marketing trends change.

Neil Patel, who tends to set the bar for the content marketing industry, currently says content between 1,500 and over 2,000 words (depending on the industry) hits the mark.

Yoast, makers of my favorite WordPress plugin Yoast SEO, say it’s got to be over 1,000 to rank in search results.

The Write Practices says if you want more social media shares,  make the post 600-1,500 words.

You can spend an hour going down the rabbit hole to see what others think about how long a blog post should be.

But you’re here because you want to know what I think, right?

Content

5 Tips On How To Omit Content Pollution on Your Blog

Do you remember the last blog post you’ve read? What was the content there like? Was it informative or dull, compelling or boring, clearly structured or chaotically arranged?

If it was engaging or jaw-dropping, that’s the right content. You probably followed it smoothly, naturally, without any effort. But if it was just a cluttered mix of words that didn’t make any sense and left you thinking “What have I just read?” — that’s content pollution, which is bad.

The matter is that blogging is so much more than writing posts in social media. It’s that creative medium that provides readers with both the information and a pinch of entertainment they want to digest. And generating effective blog content means nourishing the audience with compelling and original texts they find truly engaging to follow.

If you are wondering how to write a blog post that hooks and is devoid of content pollution, keep reading this article and learn five tips to make the most of your text entries.
