Do you think it is a good idea to turn in articles less than 500 words?


I have read some really short hubs lately that must have gone up really fast. Do you think this is a bad idea? Does it affect the views?

sort by best latest

    I think it should be 800. If I pull up an article that is that long (1150) I usually just skim it, as do most of the readers on the internet. Am I being too honest?

    Sometimes the hubs are way too long and wordy...

    My recipes are generally short but astrology ones take longer to write and I have to usually include 12 of everything.

    I guess it does depend on the subject. Some recipes that are one dish are less than 500 words.

    I have also heard longer hubs are better, so I guess it just depends on the subject.
