Hello again! I consulted with an SEO specialist and you need at least 300 so your article can be relevant to the search engines. Plus keywords. Apparently 500-600+ word articles are hard to rank. So what is the point of writing 500 words?
SEO needs at least 300 words to be search engine friendly, why the 500?
Tbh I like the feature. Because writing is my job, sometimes I wasn't up for another at least 300 words of gibberish, which held the release of lots of videos that are hogging my library.
