I am new to the system. I do not know how long my article should be?
How many words are considered to be an average size article?
Is there a words counter on the Hub web?
I appreciate your help in advance.
When you have created a hub there is a Statistic tab at the top of the hub. Click on that and the far right side hub metrics tab will give you a word count.
Minimum word count of 500 is a good guide...
When i joined hub pages about two months ago i was told an article of about 500words could be published. If you are able to write more that's great
I think 500 is a good starting point. The more words that make quality hubs, the better.;-)
I would say 500 - 1200 is optimum.
Any less than you may not have enough to say on the subject to justify discussing it, any more and you may be better off looking at splitting into a couple of seperate hubs.
I'm new as of yesterday. I wrote a short story as an introduction and will be working on more. Do I start a new page for each new story or article? Or do I let a couple of spaces, type a new title, and then the new story or article? This hub will be all cat stories based on my own cat.
If it is between 500-100 words, it can be one hub, but the articles in the hub must relate to the title. Make sure the title is broad enough to cover the articles you write. Each article goes in a separate text box. For example, a hub on swimming pools, can be about all the stages you go through -opening the pool, closing the pool, equipment etc. If it was too long, you could make two hubs.
Paul Deeds (Co-Founder and General Manager of HubPages) commented on the thread http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70209?page=3 in answer to questions regarding w/c:
You mention a 400 word minimum, but we also haven't issued any edicts about how many words a non-poetry hub must have to be acceptable. We do automatically prevent hubs that are almost devoid of content from being published (outside of poetry), but we review the slightly longer hubs on a case by case basis. You can say a lot in 300 words, and you can also say nothing in 1500 words.

When you publish a hub, it is normally listed under hub activity and a notification is sent via email to all interested parties. Now, when you unpublish that hub, finish re-editing and then republish it (keeping...

My goal is to write 50,000 words for the month of MarchI am setting this goal so I can get back into the swing of things because it has been a while since I have submitted anything to Hub Pages. This is how...

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...

On another thread, a Hubber suggested that if HubPages had a minimum word count, it would prevent some spammers.I know that a very low word count can get a Hub flagged as substandard, but perhaps it's set too low at the...

I was thinking of splitting an article into 2 or even 3 different hubs because it was too long. How many words should our articles have before we can publish them on HubPages? I checked the HubPages FAQ page but the...

I have a sense that the mobile community is growing to the point where I think Hub articles over 1000 words are likely too much for those reading from a phone. I am of the mindset that I need to write shorter...
