If you want to achieve maximum distribution of your article (meaning if you want to have an exponential return from putting your article into distribution), the word count must come down below 500 words … and best if they are somewhere between 400-500 words per article.
1,000 word articles are best split in half. Think about it: Surely you can prove your expertise in 500 words … so therefore why not get 2x the ROI from your 1000 word articles?
I’m considering investing in a small study to figure out scientifically if my gut feeling is right or not in terms of how an identical topic achieves different levels of distribution with one at 500 words and one at 1000 words with a near identical title.
What are your thoughts?
