Word Count Trends in Food & Beverage Articles [Data Study]

After analyzing 630,000+ bylined articles in Food & Beverage via our VoiceGraph index, we found a marked shift away from the shortest articles (those 300-600 words), with a drop of 23 percent over five years. In the period 2014-2019, the segment of longest articles (those over 2000 words) had the fastest relative rate of growth compared to other word count ranges — more than doubling

When we looked at word count data from 1.2 million articles published across other major industries in 2019, we found that Food & Beverage articles were about average in terms of overall length, but the industry had the smallest percentage of the longest articles (those over 3000 words).
