When is a Hub too long?

    Just wondering cause my hubs seems to be getting longer.
    I´m working on one that could potentially become quite extensive. The question is whether I should divide it into two or three parts. Also, do hubs lose their interest if it is divided into too many parts?

      If your hub can't make a complete left hand turn before the red light - it's too long...

        I guess longer Hubs need to be articulated to make the corner. wink

          How long is your hub turning out to be?

            I don´t know yet. It´s a big topic. But it could be 3 to 5000 words.

    3 words sounds pretty short...

        I'm sure he was joking when he said 3 is too short smile
        I think you could make it into 2 hubs

    My two hubs that are not some lame poetry have exactly 1000 and 1500 words. I'd say that anything beyond 2000 is too long, but if it's amazingly well written, I'd read it, so focus on that first, aha. Then, you can always split it in two if you find it necessary.
