Keep it Short and Simple

SEO strategists recommend bloggers to keep their articles short and to the point.  Your prose may equal Tolstoy's, but that won't sell on a blog.

Too much writing can turn off your readers.  Keep your articles short, provide a few links to related topics for further exploration, and pack in keywords to attract readers through search engines and keep your Adsense ads focused.

Personally, this is one of my biggest weaknesses as a professional blogger as I tend to write too much and with an attempt at too much flair, as you may notice as you contrast this sentence with all of the sentences to be found above. 

Don't copy my style if you want to be successful, but do know that too many words may cost you!
