Google: Word Count Is Not A Ranking Factor

  •   March 3, 2020

Google’s John Mueller said in a Reddit thread that Google does not use word count as a ranking factor. He wrote “Word count is not a ranking factor.”

I mean, this is literally short and to the point and I am not sure how many ways you can look at this and interpret this a different way? It was in response to someone looking for a tool to analyze the word counts of the top Google listings for a specific query.

John Mueller from Google responds “Word count is not a ranking factor. Save yourself the trouble.”

What do you all think?
