Hubbers are encouraged to write quality Hubs that are not too short. Can a Hub be too long? How long is too long? I think anything under 500 words would be too short. 800-1500 would be good. Sometimes I get a little chatty and hit 2,000 words.
sort by best latest
I've heard longer hubs and the longer your reader spends on the hub, the higher the Google rank.
For my long hubs, I use a table of contents if possible. I don't think a series (part 1, part 2, etc.) are good ideas.
Congrats on your HOTD and Nugget.
Hi bankscottage, thx for congrats. You're right about the time spent being a factor. There's so many factors my head is spinning. Fixing cars is easier. You are also right about series the trick they say is to make them stand alone pieces, somehow,MJ
MJ, what I am trying right now is a general hub (hikes in Arizona) in the category (Travel => Arizona) with 4 in it. I am then making longer Hubs for each hike in a different category (sports => hiking) with links to each from the longer Hub.
Hi bankscottage, I like it, I like it a lot, but you shouldn't be giving your game plan away here. This is the one thing these gurus seem to agree on, try something, see if it works and if not try something else.Def worth a try, I'll keep a look, MJ.
