No! That’s the short answer! There is a myth going around in SEO forums that you should have a minimum word count of 500 words per page for each of your web pages. Search engines do look at your content but they are looking for frequent phrases so they can understand what your website is about and rank you accordingly. Saying this, your text should be written for people to read NOT for Google so be careful not to repeat yourself as anyone reading your website will get bored and leave!
So, what does make a difference to the search engines when it comes to content writing?
Overall, don’t over do it! Just write keeping the above points in mind so your content flows naturally. Use short paragraphs and break up text with images to be more appealing to the eye. You must remember that although top rankings will bring you a lot of traffic, its potential customers that will bring in revenue!
