Hello Friends,

What's the best lenght for my blog articles?

I think you can keep around 450 to 500 words in your blog article.

The future of Blog article lengths is somewhere between 1,400 to 1,750 words with big bold obvious main points and a table of contents at the top.

Hi robingage!

What do you mean length? Is it the time which a reader stay in a site to read blog articles? If yes, according to a data, 7 minutes is the total average time spent by the visitor in a blog post. See this link for more details: https://medium.com/data-lab/the-optimal-post-is-7-minutes-74b9f41509b

Anf if you're talking about the words per blog articles, the recommended count is 1,600 words. See this article for more detailed information: https://blog.bufferapp.com/the-ideal-length-of-everything-online-according-to-science

I hope it would help you! :)

If you were to Google "how long should my blog posts be," you would be bombarded with differing opinions from thousands of professional bloggers. The truth is there is no magic length for a blog post. While many recommend posts generally fall between 250 and 1000 words, others try to hover around the 500 word mark. So what is right for you?
Considerations for the Length of Your Blog Post
There are many things to consider before sitting down to craft your first post.
1. How frequently do you intend to post? If you plan on posting once a week or less, consider writing a longer post. Will you post a couple of times a week? Shorter blog posts will do.
2. What will your blog post be about? If you are a small business owner, you have several options for blog post topics. When highlighting a product or service, shoot for a longer post. If you are commenting on an industry-related news item or responding to a specific comment from one of your readers, your post can be shorter. Maybe you would like to provide detailed instructions to your audience. Because of the value of the information, readers won't mind a long post if it helps them solve a problem or improves their lives in some way.
3. How can you best utilize your blog post for search engine optimization? The length of consensus for SEO purposes seems to be at least 250 words. That said, the content in your blog post is more important than its length. By staying on topic and using keywords relevant to your small business, you can ensure that your blog post will be indexed for the information it was intended for. If you wander too far off your topic, search engines have more trouble figuring out how to index your information.
4. What does your audience want? If you have already begun posting on your small business blog, take a look at the posts that have been the most popular. Analyze them for reader feedback, length, and topic. Are you new to the blogging world? Check out other blogs and forums in your industry. Identify popular topics of interest and take note of feedback readers are leaving on other blog sites for ideas. For the most prominent blogs, take a look at the length and formatting of the posts.

The minimum length for article should be 300 and max can be anything depending on your content and knowledge shared. Word count doesn't matter much for a good article and promoting your keywords in search engines.
