Nothing like that. Your article must be original and of high quality.
Should be at least 500 words, but as Kumar said, be original and high quality and content.
Ok. Its original, I just published an article with about 4500 words in it lol
I don't consider length as a core criteria - good or bad. I define articles that are good for SEO by the following definition. They're well written, laid out well, offer at least one of these, original research, astute insights, complete step by step instructions.
An excellent article for SEO can be hampered when elements such as unrelated links and media are added as well as when links are too promotional.
Things that count in SEO are quality pages with original content, researches and good keywords, summary and backlinks. If your page performs well in these, then your article will be good in SEO, no matter its length.
Long and short articles can work for seo purposes as long as the content is relevant with enough related keywords in it to define the topic. 500 words is considered a good minimum and do for backlink building but in terms of building your own sites you should try to write more than 1000 words per page.
If you think about it, the search engine scan a page to find topic based keywords that can be clumped together to form the overall relevance of the content. The google algorithm is a program after all and not a human. The more content you have the more validating keywords will be in the content. This also means that you have a chance for ranking more keywords per page.
You won't get penalized for short content but you may get rewarded for long - no guarantees, just use your common sense.
If your article is less than 400 words it will hurt. But long articles won't hurt at all. Not that longer necessarily means better SEO.
The main thing is that your post should comprehensively tackle the issue it is about. If your post/article does just that. It's all good. Uniqueness and exhaustiveness are the things that you need to strive for.
Absolutely not! You know the saying: Content is king. Long articles are only going to help your SEO. They may be more difficult to digest by the readers, but Google will surely appreciate nice and unique content about a certain topic.
Obviously, it also matters how you optimize this long article itself. Make sure that your keyword density is somewhere between 3-5%. Also use LSI (latent semantic indexing) keywords.
I think that getting noticed can be a real hard task nowadays, but content is one sure allay you can always rely on.
