I went on a discovery of information today with our good friend ChatGPT, I went there do get factual data of time.
Time for what Curt?
I want to know what the average length of a blog post is, and how long it will take to read that post.
so I ask ChatGPT:
“how long is the average blogs post in word length?”
“The average blog post length varies widely, but most studies suggest that the ideal length for a blog post is between 1,000 to 2,000 words. This length provides enough detail to thoroughly cover a topic and keep the reader engaged, while still being manageable for the reader to digest.”
I thought to myself great, but how long does it take to read a blog post between 1,000 words and 2,000 words, so I ask ChatGPT again:
“How long does it take to read a blog post with average word length?”
“The time it takes to read a blog post with an average word length of 1,000 to 2,000 words depends on several factors, such as the reader’s reading speed and level of engagement with the content. On average, it takes about 3-7 minutes to read a 1,000-word blog post, and 6-14 minutes to read a 2,000-word blog post.”
Interesting so it takes 3 to 7 minutes for a 1,000 word post up to 6-14 minutes to read a 2,000 word post. That is doable, however I wanted to go deeper so I asked about reading 10 blog posts a day:
“and if you read on average 10 blog posts a day at the average word length, how long would it take you?”
“If you read 10 blog posts with an average word length of 1,000 to 2,000 words per day, it would take you approximately 30 to 70 minutes to read all of them.”
Great! Now I am getting some good information here on how long I need to spend reading blog posts to make good comments on for Traffic and Backlinks….oh wait…Comments I forgot about that, let me ask ChatGPT
“How long does it take to leave a thoughtful comment about an average word length blog post?”
“The time it takes to leave a thoughtful comment about an average word length blog post (1,000 to 2,000 words) will vary depending on the individual and the specific blog post. On average, it might take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to leave a thoughtful comment, depending on the length and complexity of the post and the depth of the reader’s thoughts and insights.”
WOW!! I didn’t realize that it takes that much time for your brain to think about what it just read, then formulate a comment then send the impulses down your finger to the keyboard!
So now I had to bring it all together, how long will it take to read 10 average length blog posts and formulate a thoughtful comment on them..
“So how long will it take for you to read 10 blog posts and leave a comment on those ten blog posts?”
“It would likely take about 1 to 2 hours to read 10 blog posts and leave thoughtful comments on each one. This estimate takes into consideration the average reading time of 30 to 70 minutes for the 10 blog posts, as well as an additional 5 to 15 minutes per post for leaving a thoughtful comment.”
You know the benefits of utilizing the steps of commenting on blogs with the networking, immediate niche based traffic, and the extra benefit of backlinks.
Are you doing that today?
If you are not doing this now, is it because of the time investment of 1 to 2 hours per day?
If you could automate the whole process, would you?

Well there you go Curt, that means that TrafficLinkr has saved me a whole days work so far.
I’m finding that I do have to edit some of the auto comments or even rewrite them but at least 80% are fine as they come.
So glad to hear it Ralph! I am glad you are getting results and major time savings at the same time!
TrafficLinkr is an amazing tool, I hope you enjoy it and it is beneficial to you.
Very helpful information. I’ve never thought about the time spent reading and commenting. I’ve been trying to find a way to have more interaction with people without feeling like a pest. There’s much to think about .
