Short but rich content better than skyscraper

by @nazanin261 (125), 4 months ago

As a content writer, I've learned that long articles can often have a negative effect on user experience. Many users will simply scroll through the page, missing important information or becoming frustrated with the amount of content they have to sift through. That's why I decided to compress my articles - not by deleting information, but by revising them and removing any extra or unnecessary information. The results have been amazing. My articles are now more concise and easier for readers to digest, and I've seen a noticeable improvement in my SEO ranking on Seopartab ( as a result. As a content writer, it's important to always be thinking about the user experience, and compressing articles is just one way to do that.

Yes, I agree with you. We should not make our content unnecessarily lengthier to rank.

Yes, I agree too. If the text is large, but almost all of it is "water content", then it is of no use. Shorter ones are better, but with content and specifics.

The debate between short and long content depends on the context and objectives. Sometimes, a concise and focused piece of writing can be more impactful than a longer one which isn't as focused. For example, if the aim is to engage and inform quickly, shorter content is likely to be better. Plus, it's usually easier to consume and share on social. But if the aim is to provide in-depth analysis or comprehensive coverage, a longer piece of content may be more successful. The skyscraper approach can also be necessary to explore a complex topic or create a comprehensive guide. Ultimately, the length and format should depend on the goals, target audience, and the topic being covered. Both long and short content can be effective when written with the right objectives and audience in mind.

Everything depends on the topic of the site, for example, for an online clothing store, a text of 3,000-3,500 thousand characters will be enough, and for an online store of generators, this text length may not be enough. But more often I focus on competitors and choose something in the middle 🙂
