Experts Recommend 200-400 Words Ought to Keep You from Bogging Down Your Readers
For your blog to NOT end up being overlooked, barely read, or even deserted mid-sentence, it’s important to “keep it short and simple”. Most of the experts recommend keeping your posts to a maximum of 200-400 words to keep your readers engaged. And, of course, not just ANY 200-400 words. Make the blog content interesting enough to keep them reading. This may seem obvious but you would be surprised! If you have a lot more to say, why not write and publish an eZine article on eZineArticles.com. This is another way to increase your Search Engine Optimization on sites such as Google and Yahoo!.
Another piece of expert advice is to make sure the most important content is at the beginning of the blog post instead of at the end. If your conclusion is the most important point you want to make, put it at the very beginning of the first paragraph or in the subheading.
