Newbies think if they write long posts then they will index in Google search result faster, but they don't know readers always hate long posts because longs posts make them feeling bored.

Now you think; maximum of my blog posts have 1000+ words, then why I'm saying this. But I'm not saying don't write long posts; I just want to say don't try to write long posts just for increasing word counting.
My each blog post published after a lot of research and when you write after studying then you can't stop yourself to write long posts because in few words can't share your all knowledge which you've learned. So don't stare on my lengthy posts. ;)
