This is the statement on the FAQ page here on HP: "...we want to highlight long-form, media-rich content on HubPages..."
What is the meaning of the term "long-form"? Is it a certain number of words, a certain way they are presented? It's been suggested that a web article can be too long. Of course, it is also suggested that it can be too short. So, what is the meaning of the term "long-form"?
It just means that it's something that is still relevant 2-5 years from now, as opposed to now.
I would take that to mean they are looking for stellar hubs.

In general we are looking for content that is similar to a magazine article. Not a blog, not a personal journal, etc. A good Hub should also have supporting media (links, images, etc.) that are directly related to the Hub content.
I think it refers to articles with 1K words or more reports are saying people stay longer with long reading material while others say, keep it short 300-700 since people's attention span is short. I say, go for both if necessary and you can find out yourself what is working vs not working
I believe it simply means that an article is as in-depth and detailed as necessary. As long as it thoroughly covers the subject, even if you aren't overly verbose.
There is no precise meaning. It is just referring to good hubs--which tend to be more like magazine articles than tweets or tumblr posts.
LOL, five replies and five different answers. Maybe whoever wrote that piece for HP will chime in and tell us what they meant by it.
They mean by it hubby hubs or hubbiness--they stuff they tell us to do including not having the huibs be too short. The answers all look about the same to me based on that.
I think it is pretty clear what is to short as it gets you the 'insufficient content ' warning, and if you ignore that it gets your hub unpublished.
But why would anyone post magazine-length magazine-quality articles on Hubpages where the payouts are so low? Where your labors of love will be sent to Mechanical Turds for review? Where they'll be posted alongside hubs written by people who think "stuck" and "struck" are synonyms?

I feel concerned that the reason google may prefer ehow as opposed to hubpages, is because there is an abundance of poetry and short stories. I am not by any means saying that those who publish the short stories and poetry are not good, but they are not usually searchable or high market. I...

I was just wondering what people's take on article length is. Do you make a point of including as much info as possible in your article going for longer length or if you can cover it decently in a shorter length do you prefer to stick with that? I'm seeing some articles that are well...

Hello. Less that a day I've been here now, and I did, admittedly a rudimentary search, but found nothing about hubbing my own poetry and short stories. Is this allowed, or encouraged? Or is it more information sharing based? Thank you.
