I have come across a few pictures hubs. What is a good number of pictures to have for one?
Hi momster, I'm not sure what you mean by pictures hubs: hubs that use several pictures to clarify content, hubs about photography, or hubs that have little test and mainly pictures?
Anyway, I decided to answer with what I know from my experience, which is photos in a general hub that uses photos to illustrate the content, and add some extra information.
My policy is to possibly have 5+ good quality photos that are content related, and possibly mine - it is true, as they say, it looks much better if they are not all professional photos from websites or clipart.
Having 5 or more photos gives the reader the opportunity to see a cool slideshow of your images with captions at the bottom.
Hope this helps.
Tend to agree with Robie; a Hub grabs a bit more attention if it has a few pictures, preferably relevant to the subject matter of the Hub. I tend to go for odd numbers, one if very short, three if a bit long, five, seven, et cetera, putting in one picture every two or three paragraphs.
If you can put in some information relevant to the Hub both in the caption on top of the picture, and some detail in the box below it, all the better.
Hope this helps.
I agree, a few eye catching photos will get a persons attention
Here is a great Hub that will show you how many photos and how much TEXT for full optimization on Hubpages. I hope this helps. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Elem … tellar-Hub
I think few (4-5) relevant and eye catching pics are OK in a hub.
