What do you guys think is better, writing the long story which is interspersed with tips / advice between paragraphs; breaking the story / tips up into two-page hubs; (there would be at least three hubs,) or canning the whole idea entirely?
If I wrote it out as one hub it'd probably be around 9-10 pages long in Open Office. (Freeware text akin to Microsoft Word.)
Thanks for any suggestions, would love if someone has the time and is interested to take a look at what I have so far.
I'd split it into several separate hubs, but put them in a hub group so that it's easy to navigate from one to the other. You could title them with section numbers, e.g. "Whatever Title - Part 1", "Same title again - Part 2" etc. so if someone finds they land at Part 3 they can go to Part 1, if you see what I mean.
I think I'd intersperse the advice throughout the story as that would make it a more interesting read, but that's just a personal preference, it could work well with a summary/advice part at the end.
I usually split the hub if it's more than several hundred words- yours sounds as though it's two or three thousand!
People don't tend to read the very long ones- I usually favourite them or don't read them at all.
split it up, people on the internet only read for a very small amount of time.
Hey, guys, thanks for giving your advice and comments, I appreciate it! I think I'll split it up and intersperse "advice" in each hub.

Authors should be free to write about alternative medical treatments that they personally found useful for a minor ailment, but claiming a recipe cures all forms of stage 4 cancer, or any other serious terminal illness, is unethical. Especially if the hub is plugging a book with the same unsound...

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in Dec 2014, so it should be these have not been picked up by Google as organic...

Some of the hubs that I have written have found their way onto forums and other sites on their own, but others have not yet. The ones that have been are doing much better though. How long in general does it take for search engines to find your hubs and for other people to post your hubs around?Just...

I have increased my hub count on a steady basis using keyword research. I started submitting to RSS feeds. I have read all the greats on HubPages about...
