Which word count figure is most reliable for the number of words per hub?


The word count figure for my hubs in the new 'Edit-Need Some Goals' feature is different (higher) than the word count figure in 'Hub Metrics'. Why is this, and which is more accurate?

    Thanks junkseller; I think so too. I'd guess the 'Edit-Need Some Goals' figure doesn't include 'Comments', but it is reasonable to include titles and captions and maybe summaries - these are after all, all an important part of the written hub. Cheers

    Thanks LCDWriter. I suspect you're right. In my longer hubs, I've noticed that one figure is consistently a few hundred words more than the other figure.
