The consolidation increases the word count from 935 to nearly 2500. Is this considered long?
Yes, although if it's broken up with enough images and subheadings it should be readable. But at 935 words, I don't think length is your issue, it's something else. I have non-pandalised sites which rarely go above 600 words per page, and often much less.
How much are those pages duplicated across the web, or on your site? When you take a random quote from them, how many results show up?
