    I think 300 words is enough for web page content with SEO top keyword result. Please tell me, Anyone.

    I've have often read 500, but I don't know that is really necessary. I do try to avoid having pages with just a couple of hundred words though.

    Any count is fine. As long as the post serves its purpose. The word count doesn't matter.

    A post can be 50 words long or can be 5000 words long. The main thing that you should keep in mind that whether or not the post is delivering the actual information that it is intended to do.

    Agreed with mrb1129, it's doesn't matter how long is your content, the main thing is you should write properly about your product and make it user friendly.

    Hi,
    When it comes to ranking a page organically, I personally prefer longer content instead of short ones with lots of keywords.
    Lots of studies have been proved this till now that longer contents tend to rank higher in SERPS.
    I post around 2000 words content every single time and I can feel the effect of it.

    Let me know what you think about this?
    Thanks

    It all depends on the type of page, huge amounts of content on some pages is just not require and becomes plain spammy.

    Article type pages I would expect anything from 500 to 2000 words depending on the topic and how in-depth it goes, however a simple product page that sells an item on an e-commerce site I would expect a very low count say 300 words max. Contact pages, order forms, etc again are always going to have a very low word count.

    As long as the page is delivering what the user requires that's more important than the number of words on a page.

    Most of my skyscraper content is a good 1200 to 1500 words. In fact, I used to have two separate blog posts that were probably 500 a piece that I combined into one conclusive article with some extra information sprinkled in and went from 0 organic clicks for each page to around 1000 per month - not crazy traffic, but obviously shows the value of solid content.

    That said, if you can easily get your point across with a simple paragraph, then the additional fluff can actually be detrimental as users won't want to dig through 1200 words to find the answer in some heading 5 scrolls down the page. Just think of a dictionary answer being a couple of sentences and you can see how content that fulfills the required purpose doesn't have to be an novel long.

    It totally depends on what kind of site you have. 800-1300 words might be appropriate.

    What, for the whole site?? That's just a ridiculous statement, what if the site has 100 pages or more?

    You really have no idea what you're talking about, making up crap just for the sake of posting something doesn't help anyone. Your other account is equally as bad, just stop.

    Another stupid post.

    Duh, 500 words IS LESS than 1500 words.

    Now you are telling me that if I put 500 words on my home page, I can ONLY put 19500 words total on ALL of my other pages? That is still LESS than TWO (2) words per page. More, TOTAL, UTTER, NONSENSE.

    For blog websites 300 to 500 words would be enough as long as you can give all the detailed information for the users that can be benefited for them there will be no problem with that.

    To come back to the topic at hand, I think we can all agree that the number of words per page really depends on what kind of page you are creating. Personally, for non-blog pages, I like to stay at least above 300 words, yet most often write more. For blog posts, I usually don't post anything below 1,500 words and up to 3,500. My median is probably around 2,000 but there are also some outliers which are much longer.
