Are there any kind of standard word limit's based on SEO for web pages?
I've read around and I've seen advice saying that pages should aim to be no more than 500 words to maximise the SEO benefits. What's everyone's take on this?
I get asked this question a lot and my answer is usually between 250-450 words per page to try to encourage people to write good unique content. We regularly get clients who want to put essays on the web so it would be good to come back with good reasoning as to why it's not a good idea to put 5000 words on a page.
