How many words should I write to get my blog post indexed, to get my hub or Squidoo lens ranked? How much is too much for the reader and / or too less content for Google and Yahoo? If I would get each time 1$ when this question ‘How many words for ‘ pops up in a forum or online conversation, I would be rich by now 😉 Look at this google search result for ‘anchored keywords‘, last time I looked, my blog post ranked on No1 amongst 447,000 results, not bad for SERP 😉 Now it comes better, if you click on the result then you see that the post in question is only 28 words !!! Ooops, ok, the comments also add content / value to it. But still…
So what is now the answer to the evergreen question? Perhaps it is like this, you can be lucky, like me, and end up on place one with an extremely short post. You can rambling on and on, like I often do, and write so long posts that nobody actually reads them to the end.
If you twist my arm then I would say aim at 250-500 words with one keyword anchored link per 100 words and aim at a keyword density at around 5%. Hope that helps 😉
