Is 500 words good for seo?

There's no better overall word count for SEO. However, we recommend using at least 1,000 words for standard blog posts, 2,000 for long-form content, and between 300 and 500 for news posts or product pages. In addition, if a page is made up of a few words, Google is more likely to think of it as reduced content. All search engines want to offer the best answers to people's queries.

Reduced content is less likely to provide a complete answer and meet the needs of the public. As a result, it is likely that it will not rank very high. Your goal shouldn't be to write 2500 words in a blog post because it seems like the “perfect length” to rank well in organic searches. We strongly recommend that you write at least 500 words of content per page, mainly for SEO optimization.
