Many of my hubs are 500-1000 words. (some more) I do,however, have some that are 350-450 or so. Is that still okay? Some individual hubs simply do not need any more words.
yeah im with you on that,most of mine are 500-1000 but i do have a few short ones but it doesnt seem to have impacted on them.
If my hub is shorter in word length, I try to see if there are relevant videos to amplify the content. One of mine is shorter (for now at least in words) but has a six part video debate... all 6 videos embedded to add to the content value in my opinion.
I try to stay over a 500 word minimum though as a personal target and prefer much more.
hp recommends 250-1000 is the best size
Nelli Hoxie says hub length doesn't really matter for sales hubs
I prefer 500-2000 words.
Hub length does not matter for sales hubs..
I have a hub that I wrote to fill a niche on the net when I was looking for answers myself. Since it is basically just conversion information, I found it hard to even make 300 words. Still gets good views though.
Remember, it's harder to get search engines to crawl a new link then it is to crawl further down the same page. This is the case for longer hubs even though the title tag is so powerful.
I try to make most of my hubs at least 800 words in length. While it doesn't have much of an affect on conversion, per say, larger articles tend to organically generate more long tail kewords.
I've never felt that my word count is that important, as I'm sure most are 1,000 or more. I am more interested in putting out a good article. But, I do worry that some of my hubs are a bit too long, so, I make up for that with pretty pictures and videos.
In my opinion, hubs that are just a few paragraphs long seem like whomever wrote them wasn't as interested in writing a good hub as they were in writing lots of hubs for the count. Almost like there was no effort, and I usually skip those.
Heck some of my posts in the forums are longer than some of the hubs out there. But, maybe I am just shooting myself in the foot, for saying too much.

I wrote a hub on swimming pools that's around 1000 words. And a lot of my videogame hubs are above 500 words. Since my return on HubPages, I've wanted to know something. Are 500-600 word hubs enough or are they now...

Hello Hubbers! I was wondering if there is a recommended maximum length for a hub? I started writing one, and then realized that I have enough information to write a book. So I decided to break the info into eight parts...

I am in the middle of drafting a hub but am finding it to be getting quite long with a lot I still want to include. Is there a recommended (or actual) maximum length that a hub can be and is there a precedent for...
