If I read 10 SEO articles, 9 out of 10 have said that you should have 1000 -3000 words. That is huge. Generally it takes more than 3 -5 hours to write a well researched 2000+ word article.
Does it really matter? I mean most topic we can cover just 1000 with some external links. And I can say that it is quality and it is helpful for users.
Do I still have to write 1000-3000 word articles to get SEO traffic?
