    I'm planning to publish my newly written article that counts to nearly 2,000 words. Is it a good idea to publish a hub this long? Should I split it in two? I find it hard to cut the article in two due to thought and keyword considerations. Please help. Thanks.

      I think it´s too long but I have read some here in hubpages which is more or less that long. I have published ones with 1500+ and it was ok. Well, actually it depends upon the readers if they continue reading or how interesting your topic  is.

        Yup. I read it also that a good hub should contain more or less 1,500 words so that readers will not go somewhere else for further information. I intend to make this hub comprehensive enough.

          My apology. My longest hub has 3,191. Have just checked it out. It´s my Paris hub and it´s  okey.

    I think it's okay to publish that long, just make sure your topic/article is not boring and will keep the readers from reading till the end.
    Good luck to you and will be looking forward to see you long hub...

        If it's broken up nicely with paragraphs, headers and images, it could make it more digestible

    If you want to target keywords then splitting it into 2 or even 3 articles allows you to target more keywords as well as interlink the articles for added benefits. It does however depend on if your subject will allow you to split it into 2 or 3 stand alone articles.

    They should be stand alone rather than "article part 1" and "article part 2"..

    So if your long article is say... "blue widgets" and you can split into .. "what are blue widgets?", "the benefits of blue widgets", "why blue widgets are better than green", or "where to get the best blue widgets" then go for it.. you may even get ideas for a few more articles and become an authority on blue widgets..
