When choosing an article for your website, make sure that it is the Optimal Length For Your Article Marketing; a length that is optimal for search engine optimization. Your articles should be about 250-500 words. Even if search engine optimization is not your goal, it’s still a good idea to keep your articles within this range for your readers. If your article is any longer, they probably will not stay on your page to finish reading it.

 

If they leave your page, they end up with only half of the information you’ve written for them and are left with the impression that your site is too “wordy.” Most internet readers don’t read a website page as they would a book, so the shorter the better. If your article is longer than 500 words, you can split it into several pages. Then label the pages so that the reader can pick and choose which part they want to read or so that they know what is coming up next to help them determine if they want to continue.

 

When writing your article, be sure to proof read it from a site visitor’s point of view before you publish it. Sometimes you can shorten an article by combining certain topics and ideas using headings, subtitles and bullet points. Then, if you choose to do so, those headings can be used as your keywords for search engine optimization.

 

So, when writing your articles use these tips for the Optimal Length For Your Article Marketing
