Writing A Fine Hub with a Good Quality Length

Updated on June 26, 2016

The Foundation: Quality and length

Define the term quality

This is where the writer is proud of what they have published and the readers agree with them based on traffic, views, and income

The articles might be similar in topic or in word count, and people have a use for them. Some are published to teach others, some are written as a series where people need to read several hubs to understand where the writer was going. Some are written for specific purposes in mind, such as traffic building or creating money online. All are published with a purpose in mind-- one very fine hub at a time. There is no other definition to this term, but based on content alone you will need to re-write and re-work every single article you have created to make sure you earn your income.

What the best hubs have in common is quality some that are really good are are several parts need to be read as a group to make it worth it, whereas others are stand alone, but are wonderfully well constructed hubs. In other words they are fine hubs, or mini websites, which are powerful and change their readers. They are fine hubs in every sense since the writers are still passionate about them.

People will spend time reading them and will comment on them, and this adds to the hub. They might even click on an ad, which might give you some money. It is after all a business. A business of writing and publishing good hubs.

Still what is a good length for a fine hub, and then what will help you build on your success as a business person and as a writer?

Publishing a Fine Hub Means that you have to Say What you Need to Say and Have People Move to The Next Thing.

Say What You Need to Say... and Write it Well: This is an idea that goes back a long way, for most people when they think of hub length they think of word count, or money potential or keywords or content. You have to fix it to make it better and you will have to do this soon or your fine hub will die a slow death.

This is of course great in theory but we forget something when that happens, the reader. For anyone who has read a hub that is 3,000 words long, and yet reads each and every word and wishes it never stopped this is the sort of hub I am talking about.

These hubs are well written and offer the reader plenty of advice and encouragement to return. Not all hubs are created equal. This is the nature of the business not everyone can write like a writer.

But this is a business so a sense of the business is important, you need traffic and traffic comes form quality hubs. Which is why some can be short and people can't seem to figure out why people don't comment. Then there are others which yes do take a good hour to read it and the comments. ( I know been there done that) but yet, it doesn't seem that way.

Why because they have said what they need to say and ended the hub.

In this business writing a good quality good length for your fine hub is a must
In this business writing a good quality good length for your fine hub is a must

Publishing a Hub: Content and Quality For all Your Hubs

Publishing a Hub Means Quality is more important than length: Quality trumps everything, as they say content is king. (Content= Quality) now because most people want to know this I'll answer it. Does publishing any old hub do you any good?

Well no, not when the hub starts at say 40 and goes down from there. Think of it this way, your hubs affect your personal hubscore, and so does comments on your hubs. If you've had a hub that is say 3 or months old, but has no comments, yes this will bring your hub scores down, and there will be less traffic.

So let's go and think of a hub as a business:

-- your score should be about 60 or more to begin with, 60 is a good aim, not too high but still it is better than most, so it will "stick out". This is for a hub score of course not your personal score. Think about amazon, books or other items, and other things- polls and pictures, your readers need from you.

-- if you are a new hubber, with few followers, a hub of good length is about 400-600 words. As your fan base increases and more people comment, you can have a 1,500 word ( or more hub) and still have someone comment.. this however takes time)

-- Keywords make or break a long hub. Learn to use keywords wisely.

-- Be Interactive! Add a quiz or a poll, this increases the length of time that a reader will stay, of course not too many polls or quizzes, this distracts from your message.

-- Answer your comments, it's a conversation, and yes I do answer questions on the hub it was asked, and I do try to go to someone else hub to answer the questions, but the point is if your readers comment, comment back, people will come back.

-- Write well, as in no "text" like hubs, you are trying to show your professional writing skills. You want what everyone else want (money?) show them the best quality content you can.

-- No, one hub of any length will not make you rich, or even make you money. It takes a lot of hubs to do that.

This is of course a good beginning. But still what makes a good quality hub?

Interlinking and Linking From Outside

Traffic and Hubs are Interlinked... And This affect length: Word count or length is one thing. It is not enough to simply write and publish the minimum number of words to make a hub. Some people think the more words (read keywords) you use the more Google and other search engines will like you. So they "fill" more than what the hub should have. Keyword stuffing or copying content is bad for your hubs, and this can lead to a lot of problems. For one thing if you plan on working with Google long-term you'll have a fine hub problem.

What they fail to see is that after say about 1,000 words, people can fall off. Even after 100 words if it's not well written. Some people will be "default"-- meaning they will write a comment, but this is a beware sign, if all your comments fall under "good hub" or you see the time spent on the hubs is dropping ( you can find this out by looking at Hub metrics) it is time to edit this hub.

If you are a new to the Internet, cut out Adjectives and Adverbs, and try to relate to your readers. As in ask them questions, or break up a long hub into pieces. It won't help the people who came before but it will help the readers who come after.

So yes, length does affect readership, which is traffic. But there are three ways you can help yourself.

What is Most Important?

See results
this with a fine hub?  Better make sure you have quality content!
this with a fine hub? Better make sure you have quality content!

Three Ways to Help:

One: Publish a Good Hub, anything less than 50 is not to be published. Ever. End that thought of at some point it will go up, but the flip side to this is the impression people will have, on a scale of 1-100 this hub has less than 50?? that's not so good! Length is vital, too short and the hub score will be low, too long and people will leave, and not comment. Make it a good length for your reader.

Two: Do some Google research, for many people this is a "money" idea. I use Google keywords for another use-- seeing the length or most articles out there on a topic. Try to be within the pack. For example, Lissie ( one of our hubbers here) pointed out that e-zine articles do best when they are between 300-450 words. For the most part I find that my hubs which are over 800 words, but less than 2,000 words do best. You can search Google using this method and reading what is out there. See Google has its uses beyond making money!

Three: Social Networking sites are a must, go on to Say Stumble Upon or Digg, and look around see what sort of article relates to yours, and look at the length of the articles. You'll see that they are not simply "long" articles or "Short" articles which get the most traffic but something with an average length. Try to publish a hub for the social networking sites.

These three will help your readers, and make them want to stay but will also have the bonus of making the person reading it feel they read something of value, and quality... whatever the length... just publish a good quality hub! ( then link it, and comment back, and it won't seem so long either.)

To your success.

      alex-- to me it's all about quality- and if you write a full 1,000 word article, and your readers don't find it useful, then to me that's not a good article, I wish I had left the question the person asked up there, but the point way that they wondered why a 200 word article, about 300 of them, wasn't doing well. Excellent points you've given.

      I read somewhere you do not get paid for impressions if the reader stays on the page for less than a minute. So I increased the length of my articles and added more pictures.

      I now often find it hard to write a meaningful article in less than 1000 words. But since people tend to suffer fatigue after reading 1000 words I try not to go too far beyond. Nevertheless occasionally I find I need 2000 or 3000 words.

      As to keywords, if I looked for keywords before writing I would never write anything. I tend to write the article then worry about keywords.

      Artist For Hire-- sometime that happens, I'll take a quick look at them and no, I don't mind your novels. That is better in my mind than a short hub, which makes you go off searching for more information.

      Ok , slightly worried now. I have the nasty habit of writing a novel when I should be writing a message! Don't suppose you've got a spare moment to come over and have a look at some of my novels..er, I mean hubs. (Namely my cautionary tale about youth/spinal cord damage)

      I'm only twelve days old to Hubpages and have already begun amending and dividing my longer hubs but I fear there is more work to be done...will welcome any and all criticism.

      rminela-- the other thing that you can do is to save them unpublished, which allows them to "grow" a bit. mine when I first write them are around 50, but leave them unpublished for a day or so usually helps.

      ptosis 7 years ago from Arizona

      I've been trained to write at least 400 words from associatedcontent where I was writing - until now at HubPages. Sometimes I check my word count and it's not enough so continue researching - then I end up with something that could be up to 600 words. Then after that I trim it down - trim the fat, the excess to make it focused and to the point.

      I'm still working on my very first HubPage and it's a score of 56. I screwed up on the keywords - hopefully maybe I can delete the keywords. I don't know - still learning.

      Thanks for the info I am on a learning curve here.

      Sorry for my delay, I'm a bit late. Obviously I agree with you as usual, for my taste I like to read short, concise and to the point hubs; this leaves me time to read more of them. Unfortunately this affect the hubscore and so every hubber is compelled to write at least 800 words. Which is great if you are writing a story, but if you are giving informations it can be too long. Also with a longer hub it can be difficult to remember the main points and even if there is a chance that the reader comes back there is also a big chance, as you said, that he simply drops the hub. Since usually a reader is looking for quick information the balance is a difficult one to maintain. I would prefer to write as I feel instead of having always the Damocle' sword of scores above my head. But these are the rules of the game so hubs like yours are very useful in learning them. Rated and stumbled. :) You're always great.

      Sherbet Penny-- because you write really well that is why =) it's teh time you put into your hubs, but also teh interactivity you do with your followers that matters, not just on your own hubs but others.

      Congrats for 1,000 fans Rebecca~ Well done.

      Seems once I get writing on a subject it's hard to stop, 1,500 - 2,500 is probably my average hub.

      Hi my friend. Great advice as always. I see you hit 1000 fans already that was fast congratulations what a feat! I don't write anything here really but the fun stuff since I still haven't heard anything back from my appeal for adsense. But my fun stuff seems to do well...go figure. Anyhow I always read your hubs word for word afraid I might miss something important. Keep helping all us hubbers I know I need it.

      Thanks Rebecca, another useful informative hub, My score usually Ranges from 90-94 yet I don't understand how, considering there are others with tons of hubs and a lower score, and my hubs are just about fun really, interesting, Thank you again.

      Very sound advice Rebecca. I feel quality is most important. If a hub is long you may lose a reader but if the quality is there they will complete it.

      Really good hub, Rebecca! My mentor is always telling me that that I need to write more tightly..Not so much rambling and to change my sentence lengths so the reading isn't so monotonous...This really helps me and I will definitely use it as a reference point! Rated it up!!!!!

      Mike-- sounds about right, and all that extra stuff I look at can be another hub on a different topic... I was think along teh lines of hubs of 5,000 words or more... but you are exactly right!
