There's a correlation for sure, and a pretty strong diminishing return the longer you write!
I agree with the comments highlighting the 500-1000 word strategy, I think Hive/ LEO lend themselves quite nicely to that classic blog/ short essay type of writing.
You've nothing to gain from putting your depth articles on here, because you're not going to get rewarded appropriately.
I save all my longer articles for revisesociology.com where I personally get 100% of the SEO benefit from them in the long term. That's crucial to my resource sales.
This is the whole reason I chose NOT to move my 'professional work' to Hive, it just doesn't make sense.
Having said that I like the way some LEO curators are looking to reward people for SEO content, that could do with being formalised a bit more, otherwise everyone else is getting a free-ride on your long-form content by benefitting from more eyes on EVERYONE's work, not just your own!
Another major reason I wouldn't put long form content on here is because there's no easy way for people to navigate around my work - on your own blog you've got pages/ drop down menus, it's so much easier to link it all together coherently!
This place is great for more eclectic and personal lifestyle posts I'm finding!
