The two largest organized Jewish denominations in America – Reform and Conservative Judaism – together have about five times as many U.S. members as the historically much older, more strictly observant Orthodox community. But the Reform and Conservative movements have a far smaller footprint in Israel, according to Pew Research Center’s new survey of religion in Israel.

This is only one of many differences between the Jewish populations of Israel and the U.S., the world’s two largest. Together, these countries are home to about 80% of the world’s Jews, but American and Israeli Jews BALLY Jacinte Block Heel Sandal Jfnmvz0L2
in terms of their political beliefs, levels of religious observance, social circles and even their definitions of what it means to be Jewish.

Jewish affiliation with Conservative and Reform synagogues and congregations is one of the most notable ways in which Jewish life in the U.S. differs from that in Israel. About half of Jewish Americans identify with either the Reform (35%) or Conservative (18%) movements, both of which developed in recent centuries in Europe and North America as generally less pious alternatives to the ancient Orthodox tradition. Only about 10% of U.S. Jews are Orthodox.

The survey asked Jews in Israel whether they identify with any of these international streams of Judaism, acknowledging that some of them may not be familiar to respondents. In Israel, very few Jews identify with Conservative (2%) or Reform (3%) Judaism, while half (50%) identify with Orthodoxy – including many Jews who are not highly religiously observant but may still be most familiar with Orthodox Judaism. About four-in-ten Israeli Jews (41%) do not identify with any of these three streams or denominations of Judaism.

Instead, Israeli Jews are much more neatly grouped into four informal categories of Jewish religious identity – Haredi (ultra-Orthodox), Dati (religious), Masorti (traditional) and Hiloni (secular). Virtually all Jews in Israel say one of these terms describes their religious category.

In some cases, these four groups are comparable to Jewish subgroups in the U.S. For example, Haredim in Israel exhibit very similar religious beliefs and practices to ultra-Orthodox Jews in the U.S., and both groups are isolated from the rest of society in many ways. And Datiim are much like Modern Orthodox Jews in the U.S., as both groups largely adhere to Jewish law while also integrating with the modern world.

» Is Longer Really Better? How Focused and Comprehensive Content Ranks Better

If you read this entire article, it will take you 10 minutes and 13 seconds.

But guess what. It took me 21 times that long to write it.

When you stop and think about it, really good long form content takes a lot of time to produce.

There aren’t many people who can plop in their chair, bust out a 2,000-word article in an hour, and get on with their day.

For most of us, it takes a solid two or three hours to create a piece of good content that hits the 2,000-word mark.

So let me ask you a question.

I’m being totally serious here because you might just be wasting your time. Have you thought about that?

Could it be that your 2,000-word articles aren’t even worth the time and effort that you put into them?

That’s kind of a depressing thought, I know. So here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to answer the question head on. No pulling back. No hesitation.

Then, I’m going to give you a surefire formula for wasting your time when you write articles — a powerful method that will make your articles rank on top.

This article isn’t for the faint of heart. It wasn’t easy to write, and it might not be easy to read.

But if you’re ready to stop wasting time, start ranking high, and move your content marketing method to the next level, read on.

Learn how I generated 195,013 visitors a month by writing focused, comprehensive content .

How long does it take to write a long form article?

Let’s do some calculations.

Let’s say you write an article that is is 2,300 words long. That’s the average length of my articles.

The average typing speed is 40 words per minute.

If you type without stopping, you’ll be wrapping up the article in just under an hour — 57.5 minutes to be exact.

But obviously it doesn’t work like that.

You’re not writing a bunch of words! You’re writing a well-researched article!

According to, 2,300 words comes out to about 5 pages.

A well-researched, five-page article requires exponentially more time.

Giesswein Laura RYHFV
to research from Estipaper , it would take almost seven hours to write a paper of that length!

And since the average worker is only productive for Pedro Garcia Catalina vqzlp
, producing an article like that could take all day Monday, Tuesday, and part of Wednesday!

In my experience, there are some great writers out there who can produce content in less time.

Their “secret” is using a combination of raw skill, intense focus, and a familiarity with the subject matter.

Here’s the question: How long does it take you to write an in-depth article (1,500+ words)?

The people who responded to the thread are probably somewhat experienced with writing and marketing.

I went through the responses and boiled them down to just the numbers, summarized below.

Keep in mind that without all the discussion and context within people’s answers, these numbers can easily be misunderstood.

There are so many variables (native language, distractions, subject matter, research level, knowledge level, etc.) that looking at raw numbers can paint a false story.

However, it does help to look broadly at how long it takes people to create long form (1,500 words) content. (When a respondent says “days” in their reply, I calculate a day as 8 hours.)

Here are twenty-nine individual answers to the question, “How long does it take to write 1,500 words?”

Keep in mind that most of these numbers include the whole process — research, writing, editing, posting, etc.

For some of these, the research phase is the most time-consuming. In order to write a great article on a deep topic, you have to really master that topic.

Doing so requires a lot of research. For some of the writers in the discussion, that phase takes them

Some people are a lot faster, obviously. But some —including some of the most respected professionals in the field —are slower.

There is an interesting summary of responses at Alegria Viki Workwomanship Hand Painted Flowers Sandals acDih3Xywn

Kevan Lee at Buffer can bust out a long form article in 2 hours and 58 minutes. Here are some of his times:

A blogger like Jon Morrow takes two hours One of his best articles took him over 50 hours to write!

Brian Dean spends 20 hours on a post. He suggests that you shouldn’t be trying to spend time writing your articles, but

Seth Godin, marketing god that he is, writes his articles in 15 minutes (they’re really short). But research? That takes him 16 hours!

So how do you know if wasting your time? Maybe it takes you 10 hours to write a 1,500-word article. Maybe it takes you two hours. Maybe it takes you 100 hours.

The most important question is not

The real question is,

If you write really long articles, are you wasting your time?

Answer: You be.

I’ll explain why in a minute.

But obviously, it depends.

In order to figure out whether you’re wasting your time or not, you need to understand the goal of your article.

What is the goal?

Asking how long it takes to write an article is a good question, of course, but we also have to understand the goal.

If you are spinning out 2,000 words without the right focus, you wasting your time!

You’ve probably heard people like me explain how important it is to write long form content.

In response, you may write really long articles, expecting that’s all it takes to get high rankings.

But it doesn’t work that way.

Let me explain.

Google doesn’t care about word count. They care about three other things.

Let me pull back the curtain on a surprising truth about Google’s algorithm, search results, and content length.

Data does not that a large word count produces higher rankings.

Instead, we can that large word count is correlated with higher rankings.

That’s why I’ve written, taught, explained, and championed Camper Damas K200082 r1DiAly

You’ve probably seen this data before, right?

Longer content has more backlinks.

Longer content has more social shares.

Longer content has more organic traffic.

Longer content has a higher social engagement (the Y axis below shows engagement metrics):

And — this is the kicker — longer content typically has higher SERP ranking:

Most SEOs take this information and think, “Oh! I need to write ”

So, like the discussion above, they work hard (and long) to write

This is where I caution you against wasting your time.

You can’t expect to simply write content and get all the good stuff —higher ranking, more backlinks, increased social sharing, and enhanced social engagement.

Instead, you need to write content.

“Better” content typically longer, yes.

But it’s more than just length. In fact, the real reason for high-ranking content isn’t the length of the content at all.

For example, let’s take a look at the top-ranked organic results for “content marketing.”

The top result when I searched this morning was an article titled “What Is Content Marketing?” on the Content Marketing Institute blog.

The entire page, including every footer text and menu item, has only 1,120 words.

The article itself has only 647 words!

The second organic result is Twitter.

The third organic result is the main page for the Content Marketing Institute. It has less than 500 words of content and most of it is links to articles.

This is a single example for a major search term. According to Ahrefs, “content marketing” has a keyword difficulty level of 83.

This means that you’ll need at least 427 solid backlinks to have a chance to rank on the first page of Google.

There is an enormous amount of volume and engagement for this search term.

And the top-ranked results have word counts of less than 1,500!

What about a longtail keyword, like “B2B content marketing strategy.”

What do the results look like? Here’s the data from Ahrefs:

For a longtail informational query like “B2B content marketing strategy,” we would expect to get information-rich, in-depth articles.

True to form, Google delivers such results.

Here is the first organic result:

The article clocks in at 1,262 words.

This is a couple hundred words shy of the 1,500 benchmark, and more than 1,000 words shy of the 2,000+ that I generally recommend.

What’s the second organic result?

It’s an offer to download a PDF from Velocity Partners.

And…get this…the “article” (if you can call it that) is only 292 words!

That’s not a lot of content!

So what’s going on? Am I simply cherry-picking examples to push my agenda?

No. In fact, I selected “content marketing” keywords in order to surface results from the content marketing community — writers and content creators who believe that is better.

But, apparently, Google is delivering top-ranked results that do have super long articles.

Now, for every short article that I find in the top results, I could probably find a long form article, too.

The point is this: Just because you write long content mean you’ll rank higher.

I’ll state my point again — the real reason that content ranks high has little to do with the length.

Okay, well if not length, then what is it?

Every piece of content that you write has to have these three characteristics.

Content length isn’t the deciding factor.

As important as it is, there are other factors intrinsic to content that have significance.

What kind of factors influence high-ranking content?

Obviously, this is the entire question that SEO and content marketing are trying to answer.

And there are three clear answers based on data.

1. The content should be deep.

First, the content needs to be

What do I mean by “deep?”

I’ll explain, but first, let me show you why depth mattersbecause that will help us understand what “deep” looks like in a real-world example.

As I tackled this question, I performed some in-depth analysis using MarketMuse.

As an example of the analysis that I did, I’ll show you my investigation of the top-ranked article from CMI.

As a refresher, this is the article that ranks number one organically for the query “B2B content marketing strategy.”

It’s not super long. It clocks in at around 1,200 words.

My question is

First, I open up MarketMuse.

Then, I enter the URL for the article.

Second, I add the keyword as the “focus topic.”

I click “Fetch” (the first button) to pull in the content of the article.

Then, I click “analyze.”

MarketMuse then analyzes the content by scoring it in three categories:

The scores are comparative, meaning that MarketMuse also processes data from the aggregate of the top twenty organic search results for the selected focus topic.

What’s interesting about this data is that the top twenty organic results are all over the board in terms of content length.

Since the image above is small, here is the word count for the top twenty results for “B2B content marketing strategy.”

Notice that only two of these results exceed my recommended 2,000-word target. One of the results has only 80 words!

The longest article isa whopping 10k+ words,but it barely makes it onto page 1!

What makes this article such a top-ranked result?

For one, it has solid depth.

For MarketMuse, is the answer to the question, “How well does this content cover the focus topic?”

Apparently, it does very well.

The scoring process involves taking the article and seeing how many times it mentions other relevant terms.

These other terms have a “relevancy score.” The score weighs how important the terms are, relative to the focus topic.

Since the focus topic is “B2B content marketing strategy,” then the relevancy score of that phrase is 100.

Other relevant terms for this focus topic are s, etc.

The top-ranked content is because it contains a large number of relevant terms.

So, what does it mean to have content?

It means that the content covers as many relevant topics as possible.

If you are writing about “hamster food,” then you want to create content that discusses types of hamsters and other relevant hamster topics.

In many cases, deep content will by necessity be In order to treat as many relevant topics as possible, you have to write more words.

2. The content should have comprehensive coverage.

Second, really good content that ranks high will have coverage.

Comprehensiveness refers to the variety of related topics that the article discusses. So, for example, while content strives for plentiful mentions of topics, content is targeting more mentions of topics.

We analyzed this by comparing one piece of content that scored extremely high in the “content score” category.

We then compared the two to see what topics could be included in a discussion to make it more comprehensive.

In this case, the higher-scoring content mentioned topics such as the following:

The original article that we analyzed didn’t mention any of those topics.

Including the term “marketing tactic,” as just one example, could make the content more comprehensive, which could contribute to ahigher ranking.

Think for a moment, though. How much content do you need to write in order for your article to be considered highly comprehensive?

Sure, it depends on your niche. But in this case, the most comprehensive article was also the longest —over 10k words!

Content doesn’t to be super long to rank well. There are so many factors that contribute to ranking, and word count is not one of them.

But one of them, at least according to Hummingbird algorithm research.

And sometimes, in order to be comprehensive, you have to have a lot of words.

3. The content should be focused on the topic (keyword) you want to rank for.

Keyword stuffing is a thing of the past.

But honing in on a single topic and mentioning it is a thing of today.

When you analyze the top result for a given keyword, you’ll notice that the selected keyword appears multiple times and in multiple ways within the content.

In the article we’ve been using as an example, the keyword is right in the title.

Variations of the keyword are distributed throughout the article and comments:

When I run an analysis of keyword density, here’s what I see for single keyword frequency.

The top three words are 1) content 2) marketing, and 3) strategy.

I also analyzed the article for 2-word keyword density:

Notice again how “content marketing,” and “marketing strategy” are the top two.

Finally, look at the article’s 3-word keyword density ratings:

It’s no surprise that “content marketing strategy” has the highest frequency, with nine occurrences.

Is that keyword stuffing? Is 4% density rate too much?

I don’t know, but I know that this article has the number one organic result for “B2B content marketing strategy.”

Maybe keyword stuffing is dead and keyword density ratios are overrated in today’s Hummingbird era. But maybe there’s something to be said for frequent and varied usage of the focus topic!


In summary, there is no law that says your content be a certain length in order to rank higher.

A lot of content marketers spend a plenty of time creating content. And that’s

But is the only thing we should be targeting when we create this content?

No. The data suggests that your content needs to have three characteristics:

When you create content with those three characteristics, you might find yourself writing a 4,000-word article. Or it might be 1,000.

Either way, it’s going to be good.

And that’s what Google likes.

The average writing time (calculated by maximum time) is 10 hours.

What about China? When it comes to size, the Chinese economy is big because of its huge population, not because of its income per person. China also recently Ryka Influence Training Shoe CSd0ri3
, which hurts its liquidity.

As for the eurozone, its economic growth just started picking up steam after years of stagnation. And the ongoing crisis over Greece, as well as the rise of ethno-nationalist parties across the continent, certainly doesn't make it look very stable.

But there are more immediate things China and the eurozone could do to improve the desirability of their currencies. China's recently announced push to invest in infrastructure projects around the world is an attempt to build international relations and geopolitical clout. But it would also make the renminbi more attractive as a reserve option. Work is also underway on a single capital market that would stretch across the European continent, which would certainly offer the world more liquidity in euro-denominated assets. The eurozone could also eventually figure out its various debt crises and internal money flow problem.

Meanwhile, the U.S. could wreck its standing.

That President Trump makes America look a bit less politically stable sort of goes without saying at this point. But the precariousness of the U.S. position is more specific than the president's tweets. Eichengreen and his co-authors looked through the historical data and found that geopolitical relationships — particularly military alliances — influence who uses what reserve currency. It's not just an economic calculation, but also a way of strengthening an alliance. "We find that military alliances boost the share of a currency in the partner's foreign exchange reserve portfolio by close to 30 percentage points," they concluded.

You can see how this might be worrying for the U.S. Trump could eventually make good on his "America First" rhetoric and pull the United States out of NATO. Or the president's ongoing feud with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un could also destabilize the region. What if Japan and South Korea — who both likely hold Converse Chuck Taylor Double Tongue Ox Sneaker Women dUjKenRSM
of their foreign currency reserves in dollars — no longer see the U.S. as a reliable provider of stability and security? China could rush in to fill the breach.

This brings us back to Trump's tariffs. It's unlikely that increased duties on steel and aluminum could set off a tit-for-tat trade war that eventually encompasses a whole range of trade goods and services. But if they did, that would make the U.S. dollar look less attractive as well.

If any of these conflagrations do happen, Eichengreen and his co-authors think changing technology could be an accelerant. It's traditionally assumed that reserve currencies function similar to monopolies: Things like convenience and network effects push everyone to rely on one dominant currency. But with modern technology, massive reserve holdings can be instantaneously transferred between assets and between currencies. Digital technology allows everyone to comparison shop between different assets and currencies at the click of the button.

To stimulate it, try gently rubbing it with your fingers. You may find that it's so sensitive, that it's actually more pleasurable to provide it with indirect stimulation , rubbing around it, instead of touching it directly.

it's actually more pleasurable to provide it with indirect stimulation

It's best if you start off massaging it slowly and gently and gradually build up how intensely you touch it as you are reaching climax. Then as you climax, ease right off as it will be incredibly sensitive to touch.

4. Find your G-spot.


Another type of orgasm, that many prefer to regular clitoral orgasms, is the G-spot orgasm. But before you can start stimulating it, you Diane von Furstenberg Ekati Thong Sandal Rw4XKe0ln
. It only appears and becomes engorged when you are aroused.

Unlike you clitoris, it's located inside your vagina on the front wall. It feel slightly rough to touch, very much like the top of your palate in your mouth.

There are a number of ways you can stimulate it. You can make a "come-hither"motion with your fingers to massage it or you can hold your fingers pressed against it, and move the rest of your arm to stimulate it. How you do it is really up to you, but make sure to do some experimentation to find out what you enjoy the most.

5. Try using lube.

If you have trouble reaching orgasm, or you just plain want to have a more pleasurable, sensual experience, then I strongly recommend using lubricant (usually called lube). There are many different types of lube whether it's water based, oil based or made from something else. So make sure to experiment with each to find out which you prefer and to see which type helps to give you the strongest orgasms.

6. Try sex toys.

A great way to intensify your orgasms when learning how to masturbate is to use sex toys. There are a number of different ones that you can use.

Vibrators are probably the best, but make sure to spend a little extra when buying one so that you can get one with adjustably speeds. The vibrators that are stuck at a high speed can prove to be too strong intense for some.

too strong intense

Dildos are great for replacing your man when he's not around. You'll also find that you a lot of dildos double up as vibrators.

While there a huge variety of different sex toys that you can use on yourself, the last one that I'm going to talk about using is the butt plug. Using a butt plug while masturbating is something many women (but not all) find to intensify their orgasms when they masturbate.

7. Watch some porn.

Some porn when masturbating ... some hate it. It's all a matter of personal preference. The next time you have some time and are alone while masturbating, Yellow Box Norah Shimmer Sandal IJzdz5cxZ
to see if it intensifies the experience for you. But don't feel that you have to watch it. Some enjoy it during masturbation, while others don't.
