How long does an average SEO article take?

Table of Contents
    Add a header to begin generating the table of contents

    It depends on the length and scope of the article you want to be written for your site. It could take an hour, a day or a week.  ?

    But to be honest with you, you really don’t want to be churning out average content. This is especially the case if you want to improve your SEO. ?  
    Content really is KING.?
    Sometimes it takes a bit longer just to make sure that your content is:

    • High-quality
    • Relevant
    • Useful to the reader
    • Highly shareable

    Right off the bat, I’d recommend taking this 14-day video SEO course. It has a section that is dedicated to helping you to create an SEO-driven strategy for your content. ?

    As well as giving you some pointers on other areas of SEO such as link building, and local SEO.?

    In the past, it was believed that you could build a perfectly good website with content of 300 words. However, these days you want to have at least 500 words in each article minimum.

    More people are leaning toward 1,000 and even 2,000+ words in length – this is referred to as long-form content.
    It’s a great idea to create some long-form evergreen content for your website.

    Content like this allows you to provide your readers with more in-depth content that provides them with more value. ?  

    Therefore it’s not so much about time, but more about VALUE.

    Now that I’ve highlighted the importance of creating valuable, high-quality content, I will now share some tips on how you can do this, but in less time:

    #1: Brainstorm all of your ideas for content ?

    Ideas for content will come and go – write them down as they come to mind.

    This way, when you sit down to write your content you won’t spend ages looking online for inspiration for what to write about.

    #2: Write, then edit ?

    Continually stopping and making edits to the content that you’ve just written will slow you down immensely and interrupt your flow.

    It might take some time to get used to but get into the habit of writing out your long-form content, then going back to make edits and improvements afterwards.

    #3: Repurpose content

    Repurposing content is a really good way to save time.

    Perhaps you wrote an engaging short 500-word blog post that racked up a lot of views and was well received by your audience.

    You can further leverage that piece of content by repurposing it into long-form content by adding a minimum of 1500 words to be. ?

    When doing this, be sure to use images and subheadings to structure the content and make it easier for your audience to read.

    Following this tips should help you to produce high-quality long-form content in less time. ?
