    Hey Priya, I was going through this post and its really good to have lengthy post of 1600 words but there is one important aspect is how we draft these 1600 words. I mean here is with readability. May be 1600 words are not going to give you the actual worth if written poorly or without proper breaks.

    Eye friendly spacing, line breaks, paragraphs play very important role not only for visitors but also for SEO. Search engine uses readability with Flesch Kincaid Grade Level readability formula.

    1. I totally agree, Deepak. Proper formatting is essential to enhance user experience and make it easy for your visitors to navigate your blog.
