As a new hubber I`m writing small hubs now, just to gear me up. Is it a right technique?
In 4 days i`ve wrote 3 hubs and all are tiny in size.
It depends on what your goal is. If you just want to get published quickly, then short and sweet are ok. If your goal is to get readers, and passive income (Adsense, Amazon, etc) then you need to grow your hubs. To attract readers and place well in search engine rankings you need to have much more content. Look at the highly ranked hubs, by highly ranked hubbers and observer their length and compositions.
A hub never has to be "finished". You can start with a short hub, and then keep coming back to add more content (text) capsules, and experiment with other capsules, like news, polls, etc. You'll find that as your hubs grow in content and quality, your readership and revenue will also likely increase.
You can also change directions with a hub, as you reflect on it and research the topic for yourself.
Your hubs are more like blog notes, too small, if you are here to earn you will have to write bigger hubs (not blogs but like articles) to get Google's attention. 500 -700 words would be a good start. I suggest you write what people may want to read, what is useful for others. Read up other hubs, follow topics of interest and read hubs in those subjects, that would take you a long way.
Make sure that your hubs are spell checked and checked for grammar.
I always try to brain storm a particular topic completely offline, mostly using Microsoft Word. What I'll do is start writing on a topic, then if I think of a tangent discussion, I'll separate the two with a few line breaks or something. I spend maybe 30 minutes doing this and then look at the result.
Most of the time, the little chunks of writing I did can be combined to create a decent 700 - 1000 word Hub. Maybe instead of writing Hubs, you should just write, then compile Hubs later.
Hope this makes sense...
thanks jstankevicz, sofs and ryancarter. As a novice Hubber I deserve your Pardon. Is`nt it? Thanks again.

Warning: This is a bit of a rant. Please ignore if you're not in the mood for it.There's been a lot of scrambling and drastic knee-jerk reactions since the Panda update. Some have been well thought out and planned (like Nelle's move), and others are an understandably desperate attempt to get...

Hi ya'll. I'm a newbie and am wondering what hub scores ranging from 47 to 56 mean? What is a "good" hub score and how does that impact things?Thanks so much!!!

I WRITE, therefore, I use WORDS as my Tools.With the increased emphasis by HP and especially Google SE, on Videos, I feel that I am being driven to use/create Videos in order to increase the popularity of my writings. But, I,(a Writer in my own mind, at least) try to do my painting with...

I would like to make a suggestion to the TEAM here on HUB Pages. I feel that it would be a positive improvement here on the HUB, if all of the activity that is perpetuated by Hubbers, were made known.For instance... apparently - anyone can go around giving thumbs UP or DOWN to a fellow...

I have been thinking of leaving HubPages for a while now because of several reasons. With their latest ebay/amazon update I now have to reformat over 90 hubs (Some had not been published yet and I was waiting for Halloween). Rather than doing this I will use my time looking for a site and...
