Content: Low Content Pages

back to issues overview

Low Content Pages

Pages with a word count that is below the default 200 words.

There isn’t a minimum word count for pages in reality, but the search engines do require descriptive text to understand the purpose of a page.

This filter should only be used as a rough guide to help identify pages that might be improved by adding more descriptive content in the context of the website and page’s purpose.

Some websites, such as ecommerce, will naturally have lower word counts, which can be acceptable if a products details can be communicated efficiently.
