I know I've heard talk about ideal word counts for search engines... and I also know that opinion varies a bit on what is ideal.
I'm trying a new style (for me) with a fashion hub featuring amazon links. I've been using the "description" within the amazon capsules to speak a bit about that particular style. Would my Amazon description be considered as counting towards total word count? Or, because its not part of the text capsules, am I going to wind up with what seems like an extremely short hub to the internet gods?
Thanks in advance.
Simple way of checking is to check the hubmetrics for word count, then delete one word from amazon description and recheck if word count changed. Thats all I can give on that topic.
No, the Amazon text description does not count towards HubPages word count. However, I don't know why it wouldn't count toward 'Google's word count'.
I never use the descriptions for Amazon, however. I'll write a paragraph or 2 and then put a relevant product/products directly next to it so the reader knows what I'm referring to.
Alright, I give up... Where the heck is hubmetrics? Off to search in the faqs I guess!
Nevermind... Found it from another forum thread. And, just to confirm girly-girl - No, Amazon descrips are not included.
Glad 2 hear ya found it... suppose I shoulda told ya its at the top of all your hubs next to edit in the stats button... but you've found it by now so good 2 know that you confirmed it as no count

what text actually counts towards your hub's word count? I know the words in the text capsule count, but how about rss feeds, news, links, polls, etc.? Is this text included in the word count?

How many Amazon capsules are allowed per how many words? I don't care personally, I never made much on Amazon. But on a few of the lenses that came over, they are almost all Amazon capsules, with maybe 200 words. I...

This is really not a big deal, but I am curious why there are two separate word counts for hubs. I am editing a hub and the new feature shows a word count of 1287. When I click on "done editing"...

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?
