    Yes absolutely they will work. In todays hectic world no one has the time to read and go over the long stuff. The short articles that get right to the point, are the ones that will garnish attention.

    The point is whether or not the concerned post is serving its purpose. Build content user friendly not search engine friendly.

    Say, you are announcing your software update. Then a title along with a short description of it say two to three lines. And a list of the features that has been updated (that makes say four points). Whole thing should wrap up within 100 words.

    A post can be 20 words long or 2000 words long. As long as, it delivers the information as it is intended to do, its fine. I hope you get my point.

    It all depends on the quality of the content.

    Short articles are always good for those who are too much busy and don't have much time to read big articles. For example News related. But if you talk about information and learn. It can be subject should oriented only and easy learn or understand. People might like you with some good examples.

    Just write for your audience instead of trying to achieve a certain word count.

    I have some good ranking articles that are only just over 400 words, so yes but it depends on the subject and on your competition.

    More words might mean more content, which might help you rank better. Overall, just make sure that the content is concentrated and you'll be fine.

    If your posts are of high quality and user-friendly, then they are enough for SEO ranking.

    As far as I know, if visitors love your posts, then search engines like Google also like them.

    Thank you so much.

    I like your website, I have a site which is based around self help, psychology and covers anxiety disorders and things like that. How long has it been up and are you getting much organic traffic?

    Yes! It works. If you are successful in explaining the concept within those words and the viewers like your explanation then google will rank your post higher on the search engine.

    if the message you are making can fit in 400 words you can try make an infographics from it as well, there are a lot of tools that can help you with that, and the pictures does help with SEO now.

    I think quality is very important but it must also be acknowledged that many people don't read on the web for long periods of time.
    I have done a bit of research into this today (I was looking for information about article length, paragraph length, numbers of sentences etc that people were most comfortable with). I found this article (amongst others):
    https://www.nngroup.com/articles/how-users-read-on-the-web/
    While it is over twenty years old I think it makes a good point - that many do not read, they just skim text, seeking keywords.
    Anyway, I am no expert. I just thought this was interesting :)
