If you’re an avid reader of SEO blogs, there’s no doubt that you’ve heard the debate of having enough text length for Google to index your page.A� Problem is – experts vary in their opinion.A� Some say 200 words is enough, others are at the 300-350 mark, while others insist that 500+ words are what’s necessary for original content.
