I was wondering , how big can a hub get? I keep adding to my hub <snipped> because I keep finding more great stuff. So, I was just wondering if there is a limit.
Keep adding until nothing fits anymore. There is a limit only if you put a limit to it.
Carol, if there is a limit, you can see that thisisoli hasn't reached it yet!
However, I'd question why you want to keep adding to the same Hub. It's true that increasingly, we're hearing Hubbers say that longer is better - 1,000 to 1,500 words is now the target where the norm used to be between 400 and 800. And Thisisoli believes that when he's writing a series, Google seems to like it when he has one extra long Hub linking them all. However, I do think there's a limit.
After all, if you have more than 3,000 words, you clearly have the material for two Hubs. Two Hubs means doubling the chance that one of them will be highly ranked by Google. It means displaying double the ads, too. So your earnings potential with two Hubs is far more than putting all your eggs in one basket.
If you've written more than 3,000 words, it must be possible to split it up, as it's inevitable that you've covered more than one aspect of your topic.
My first hub, (which is now 16 or so seperate hubs) was quite large, so I don't think there is a limit.
However I had a lot of complaints left in the comments about the length and a couple giving advice about dividing it up into seperate hubs.
My first hub was most of the hubs of mine in the religion and belief section.
17 letter and 2 photos, i video and news clips.
maximum size allowed for hub.
Not sure what "17 letter" means, and your "i video" can't mean that there is a limit of just 1 video.
I started with more than 1 video on my Jacob Black Fan page hub. I think it has 2 videos and 4 sets of slideshows. It has a ton of photos and I guess that would make it my largest hub. Buy my Twilight New Moon Review hub has 3 videos.
I think one of my Hubs is around 7500 words long (my Discworld one, and that is made up of around 40 text modules, 70+ amazon modules, eBay modules, 40 picture modules and more.
As far as I can see there is no limit, however, things do slow down as you add more!
...and I would be interested in knowing how profitable this particular hub has been. Views, I can understand, would probably be high but do the viewers - after going through all of the info - actually click on any of the promotions? I'm interested in the psychology of consumerism and this would be great info.
Good question The Rope. I too, would be interested in knowing how well that hub is doing.
The unanswerable question is whether it would do just as well - or better - if it were split up into more than one Hub!
One issue of concern is that it took forever to load - I think if I'd been looking for information, I might've given up and looked at another source. That would be a big negative if others have the same problem with it.
It's also a good example of how at least some of it could have been split into a separate Hub - the guts of the Hub is a review of each book, so the list of characters at the start of the Hub could easily be made a separate Hub with a link. Also there's a substantial difference between the adult Discworld books and the children's books, so I'd have been making a separate Hub about the children's novels.
Finally, I'd love to see Nelle's take on the Hub - my feeling is that perhaps the reviews are longer than necessary. How many words will the Amazon description capsule accept?
I just looked at Sunforged's new Hub about Avatar posters. It illustrates what I was thinking. Thisisoli could have written a long review of each book WITHIN the Amazon capsule.
Not sure if Google regards text within the capsule any differently.
Thanks for all the help. I just read a hub on Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary that had 5 videos, so I guess I'm still safe.
Just go for it and make it as big and as informative as you possibly can...really you are limitless, because you can do hubs like I have started..hub 1 through hub 20 or any number to keep the info flowing..I will be doing a couple of hub series like this very soon!
