The 10 Worst Stings on Earth -- It got really long and I'm thinking about breaking it up into several smaller hubs. Any suggestions?
Your Hub is 4,600 words. One of my best Hubs for Google traffic (on poetry) is over 10,000 words. A Hub is only too long if it is boring. Even short Hubs can be boring. Your Hub isn't boring.
A longer Hub has more opportunities to be found for more search terms and for search terms you weren't knowingly targeting.
I would suggest, however, that you add a Table of Contents after the first paragraph and use major keywords for the anchor text in the on-page links. It's great for SEO and your viewers will appreciate the index, too.
If you don't know how to do a Table of Contents, see this forum thread:
Briiliant, WF, thanks. Going now to follow your advice.
I added a table of contents. It's a fair amount of work but it was cool to learn a new skill. Also cool to scroll through the source code -- the DNA of the internet! Thanks again.
