I've just drafted a long (>1400 words) hub with all the trimmings: tables, two videos, three photos, a poll and a quiz.
The result is quite a lot of scrolling.
What are the pros and cons of using a table of contents capsule?
I know that HP recommends that links are integrated into text and that lots of hyperlinks grouped together is bad. Im also worried how the great-and-all-powerful Google would view so many links grouped together in the second capsule of my hub
Is the easier navigation trumped by the risks, or should I just leave it out and let readers scroll through after writing a paragraph saying what the hub will cover?
Thanks in advance!

I used a 'Table of Contents' in one of my Hubs in case anyone wanted to go directly to a certain section. If you would like, you may check it at:
It may help you decide whether you want to enter one into yours. I received positive comments but I do not know whether they were on the entire Hub or not.

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the editor that read it decided that it was no longer going to be featured. I was told...
