Is there a limit to the number of words a capsule can contain?
If you have written quite a large capsule - is it possible to divide it into two or more smaller ones in order to add pictures between the smaller capsules.
Is there an easy way to count the number of words in the capsule / Hub (sorry if that is a very silly question !!!!!!!!!!! )
Thanks for reading this.
And big thank you to everyone who writes such helpful posts on the forums.
No, there's no limit.
It is. Having a hub that is too long can be a problem (peoples attention span and all that) but having a hub that's too short can also be a problem. As long as it does the subject justice and you link to the next step, lesson, tutorial or level then it should be fine.
Copy and paste it into a Word processor document and use the Word Count there.
You said it is ............. may I ask - how you would do it - do you copy and paste or something?
Well,you cant really divide a capsule into two parts,but what you can do is use two seperate capsules and it would be much better if you divide your text into different paragraphs and use a seperate capsule for each.
Just be aware that if you have images and other things floated to the right, the text in your capsule should be long enough to flow all the way down past the bottom of those items. If not, you can get some strange formatting issues with big white spaces when they put the Adsense blocks in between the capsules.
Additionally, if you don't use word, you can google "word count tool" and you'll get lots of websites that exist solely to let you paste in a block of text and calculate how many words that block consists of at the click of a button.
This can also be easier than opening a bulky word processor sometimes.
Thanks so much guys - I really am grateful for the answers you have given me here
Thank you Jenny
That is really useful advice.
I got quite carried away thinking about my favourite places as I wrote the Hub,and completely forgot about adding pictures ....... I won`t do that again !!!!!
Thanks so much for taking the trouble to help me out

The nice thing about the new Amazon capsule is that it displays the description text in the same size as the rest of the hub. This can be beneficial and may turn into better sales. So I reorganized one of my hubs,...

I know that the length of a good hub should between 800-1400 words, but where does it tell you how many words you have written?
