Hello everyone. I am new to HubPages, and am wondering if there is a Word Count feature in the article template. If not, do people just paste the text into Word to determine the Word Count? Thanks for your answers. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
Sometimes I have pasted the content into Word, but it doesn't always match the HubPages word count. Sometimes I can click "stats" next to "edit" at the top of my hub when I have saved it unpublished and then I can click on "HubMetrics." The word count is on the top line. However, sometimes when I click on "Stats" I get a message that I don't have any stats yet.
That tidbit of information will show up in Stats --> Hub Metrics.
edit: I see that WannaB beat me by 5 seconds. Tough town the internet.
I have noticed my word count as I am creating my hub. It will be in the top left hand corner. I hope this helps. Welcome to Hubs.
I usually write my Hubs on my computer, and use the 'properties information' to get the # of text I've used. I save it then just copy and paste into HP. Helps prevent loss if I click the wrong button on HP I also keep the urls in a file on my computer too, for quick retrieval when promoting.
As someone already said, you can check word count through HubMetrics. However, last time I checked, each text capsule itself maintains a word count also. So, you can keep track as you're creating the hub, without having to exit edit mode.

Is there a way to view the hub counts for all of your hubs at once? I know you can see the word count of individual hubs if you go to stats, but it would be helpful (and easier) if I could look at all my hubs at...

I was thinking it may be useful to include the Word Count and View Duration in the Stats Report. I find these two things useful for helping me decide where I need to focus on updating old hubs. Right now I need to go...
