Do you want to analyse your competitor content and article ranking on Google Search? 

And especially the number of words in their article !!

With thruuu, a free SERP analysis tool, you get a lot of data about Google SERP and the word count for every page ranking on the search engine. 

The word counter tool of thruuu will help improve your SEO as it counts how many words are in a particular article and shows you the average number of words present on any page of any Google SERP.

What is the best word count for SEO?

There is not best word count for your content. Google doesn’t consider word count as a ranking factor. 

What is important is that your content is comprehensive and cover a topic in detail. The word count of articles can tell you how deep your competition is covering a topic.

For instance, if you want to speak about “growing tomatoes” and you see that the top-ranking articles on Google offer between 2000 and 3000 words, it is more likely that your article must be in the same range or beyond. With a thin content of 800 words, it might be challenging to be as complete as the other articles.

Leverage the word count to understand how complete your article has to be and the format of your article, long or short-form content.
