John Mueller suggested that the number of words in an article is not a quality factor that Google considers.
Recently one user asked to John Muller “Will Adding Relevant Content Help Rankings?” Does it work out like that? Is more text better in the eyes of Google?”
John Muller Suggested
“From our point of view, the number of words on a page is not a quality factor, not a ranking factor. So just blindly adding more and more text to a page doesn’t make it better.”
“It’s a bit like if you want to present something to a client who’s walking in, you can give them a one or two page brochure or you can give them a giant book of information.
And in some cases people will want a book with a lot of information. And in other cases people want something short and sweet.
And that’s similar to search.
