@Lee Ka I did not find your comment about contact with support so I am writing it here that in case you are willing to contact them there is a tab at top of the page “Contact Us” I sent them a message about an hour ago but yet to find an answer for that.

These are some additional information for our members.

This site was founded in 2014 by two IT specialist, but they went in great loss, until 2015 where our company had big investors working for us and we have a contract of 10 years from now with the investor and the next contract will be renewed in 2025. This website is just one product, the owners has some other local business in US, UK and Canada. Other products can not be disclosed over here, as it against our company policy.

@haraka I’m not sure if there is a correlation between length of status and earnings, but I’m glad you mentioned it. I will be curious to see if it makes any difference, as I often post rather long status updates!

So far we have that the length of posts and forum comments seems linked to earnings. That definitely makes sense, as a longer post has more potential to catch the attention of the search engines than a shorter one. I imagine the same holds true for comments, except that they all add up together to contribute to the relative weight or clout of the page.

It’s amazing how much things have changed on the internet in just a few years! When I first started to learn about SEO, the site I wrote for wanted us to keep articles in the 450-600 word range. Now a post has to be more than 1000 words, in order to get really high placement in search results.

@support Thank you for telling us that. It’s really good to know that there are big investors for this site and other products as well and having a long term contract. As a IT programmer, I am happy for the two founders who are IT specialists that have such good business and products. Wish them have a good success in their career. 🙂

@sunil I think so. I tried to vote up, and the member’s point get increased by one. So, I assume you are right.

As for contacting the team, since you have not got any reply yet, perhaps we can tag support in the forum. It seems like he or she is quite active in the forum. I always get response from the support quick in the forum.

@ruby3881 I didn’t know initially we were recommended to write articles in 450-600 word range. It’s nice to know a little bit more.  I heard that Bitlanders will rate those articles that are longer than 1000 words higher too, so I am thinking perhaps a 1000 word article would be better.

Yes, when I began serious web writing in 2009, I had to learn to pare down my texts because most people didn’t have the attention span to read more than one screen’s length of text. Search engines were penalizing pages that needed too much scrolling, and we were all being told to break it down into smaller chunks.

When I joined InfoBarrel a little while after Yahoo closed up their contributor network, people there were recommending posts 1,200 to even 2,000 words long. I thought they were absolutely nuts! But the internet is an ever changing place, and we must keep up with the new ways people search for and use digital information. It’s important to become aware of trends and adapt our writing to the current market. This helps ensure that we attract the attention of both human readers and search engines!

@ruby3881 Yes, I agree that the technology world is always changing, and I am sure there is a reason for allowing or encouraging lengthy articles now. I think more images are being used in the articles too, right?

Thank you for sharing this. You have really been in this writing world for long time, I am sure you have done lots of studies and are doing good. I am glad I can learn so much from you. 🙂

I’m also surprised to see that most of the people i see on Literacy Base are ranked as newbie. So it really makes me wonder what other rankings are on the site. I will also be glad to know how rankings are doing on literacy base.
