Google: Word Count is not a ranking factor

Google: Word Count is not a ranking factor

John Mueller of Google said in a Reddit thread that Google does not use the number of words as a ranking factor. He wrote: "Number of words is not a ranking factor."

I mean, this is literally short and concise and I'm not sure how many ways you can view this and interpret it in a different way? It was a response to someone looking for a tool to analyze the word counts of the best Google listings for a specific search query.

John Mueller of Google replies: "Number of words is not a ranking factor. Save yourself the hassle."
