Lots of Hub Content, or Not?

    I've been reading various Hub strategies, for successful Hubs, and some folks seem the think Hubs with 400-700 words can be just as successful as those with 800+ words.  What is the general consensus (if there is one) as to what's best?  Or does it depend on topic?  Whether video and other fun stuff is included?

    Is it just as easy to get a score of 90-100 with a "short" Hub as with a "long" one?

      As far as I can tell hub score is pretty much irrelevant anyway, it's all about getting maximum external traffic from Google etc. that counts.  That can be done just as easily with a shorter hub if you target the right niche.  A successful strategy seems to be to draw people in to your article, but to leave the actual question unanswered, making the need to click your ads greater.

      It does not matter the amount of content you post, its the quality of the content that matters.

    I personally think longer hubs do better. It helps your hub score AND helps you get traffic (the more content, the more likely you will write a phrase that someone searches for).

    For me, I write -1000 words hmm but I do enjoy repeat visits big_smile but choice or presentation of a Hub is up to the writer and longer hubs does increase staying time. I write the same way I search ... short and to the point? tongue lol

    I tailored some of my hubs after the original posting by adding content and the scores did actually improve, but they also got a little more traffic, so I am not sure which thing improved the score.

    From my experience I seem to do okay with 350 to 600 words. My longer hubs have a lower CTR.

    My longer hubs are getting more traffic on Google, etc...  That concerns me much more than my Hub Score anyway.  The longer the hub the more keywords there are to pick up.  1500 of so words usually does the trick.

    I've read on other sites and forums that readers prefer shorter articles as the attention span of Internet surfers is short (this sounds sort of insulting I realize), plus reading from a computer screen tires the eyes so it's better to have articles at least 400 words long to get info in there but no more than 800 so your readers don't lose interest.

    I don't know if this is true or not but at least two other successful writer sites I know of go with this policy.
