I've been reading various Hub strategies, for successful Hubs, and some folks seem the think Hubs with 400-700 words can be just as successful as those with 800+ words. What is the general consensus (if there is one) as to what's best? Or does it depend on topic? Whether video and other fun stuff is included?
Is it just as easy to get a score of 90-100 with a "short" Hub as with a "long" one?
As far as I can tell hub score is pretty much irrelevant anyway, it's all about getting maximum external traffic from Google etc. that counts. That can be done just as easily with a shorter hub if you target the right niche. A successful strategy seems to be to draw people in to your article, but to leave the actual question unanswered, making the need to click your ads greater.
It does not matter the amount of content you post, its the quality of the content that matters.
Agree with above statement to quite an extend

@ hubpolice.. your photo-editing skills are bad...
You can try asking Question in Q&A section for some help abt dat
just a thought..if u like it
I personally think longer hubs do better. It helps your hub score AND helps you get traffic (the more content, the more likely you will write a phrase that someone searches for).
For me, I write -1000 words but I do enjoy repeat visits but choice or presentation of a Hub is up to the writer and longer hubs does increase staying time. I write the same way I search ... short and to the point? lol
I tailored some of my hubs after the original posting by adding content and the scores did actually improve, but they also got a little more traffic, so I am not sure which thing improved the score.
From my experience I seem to do okay with 350 to 600 words. My longer hubs have a lower CTR.
My longer hubs are getting more traffic on Google, etc... That concerns me much more than my Hub Score anyway. The longer the hub the more keywords there are to pick up. 1500 of so words usually does the trick.
I've read on other sites and forums that readers prefer shorter articles as the attention span of Internet surfers is short (this sounds sort of insulting I realize), plus reading from a computer screen tires the eyes so it's better to have articles at least 400 words long to get info in there but no more than 800 so your readers don't lose interest.
I don't know if this is true or not but at least two other successful writer sites I know of go with this policy.

I have had a few hubs moved to various niche sites with hub scores ranging from 69 to 87. I feel I have much better hubs remaining on the original site than some of those selected to move, especially my latest which was...

Do you add content to your worst-performing Hub or your best to make it even better? Do you add content to the low-scoring Hubs before the high scorers? What else do you think when you decide when or if to add content...

It is advantageous to delete one's own low scoring hubs that have little traffic. I figure getting rid of the low score would increase the average of the rest of one's hubs.What do you think?

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is...

I just published a hub about quetzals I used some scientific terms and some foreign words. Do the stupid bots think they are misspellings? ( A human would understand what they mean.) I can't think why else this...
