    Nice post

    1. Thanks for the comment :)

  • I like to write both short and long posts. Everything depends on the topic you're writing about.

    Long posts demands our time but are good for SEO. On the other hand, short posts are easy to write but you can't stand out of the crowd only with short posts.

    1. Bro I think you can stand out of the crowd with short posts also.

  • i Think A medium Post will be Perfect Which will be neither too long Nor too short.A Post length Must Be from 400 words to 1500 words.This is the perfect length for a Post.Btw Nice article and awesome points raised here (y)

    1. Yup! Medium is perfect post, but i think you can't explain the topic deeply in medium length post.
      Thanks for the comment BRO.

  • Good description Aditya.
    I've written many posts with length ranging from 600 to 5000 words, and now i feel that the best length is 800 to 1000 words, because it's good for SEO as well as it's sufficient for explaining most of the topics.

    1. Sometimes 1000 words are less for explaining the topic. Post length depends on you. How much long you want to make.
      Thanks for the Comment Bro :)

  • Nice post. Yes, its better to keep all the information in brief. But, the essence of the topic should not be hampered by making it short forcefully.

    1. Yup! truly said. But
      Short article are also useful as some audience love to read only short article.
      They can't read long article. But in short we can't provide whole information.

      Thanks for the comment!!!

  • according to yr article i will prefer long post. as no one can edit it, and give more traffic. Good Post Buddy..

    1. Yes bro long article is not easy to edit it. It require lot's of time to do that.
      In that time you can new article.
      Thanks for the comment.
