I have read quite a few times in the forums that a good length for a hub is 700+ words. Besides copying and pasting all my capsules into Microsoft Word, how do I tell how many words my hubs have?
Stats, at the top of your hub. Among other stats is "wordcount"
Thank you very much, i was looking under the hub stats not actually going into the hub. I appreciate the info.
Is it just me or is this feature no longer working for a hub that has not yet been published?
It used to, but not any more.
When you view your hub, there are buttons on top that says "edit" "stats" "delete" right before the green button that says "start a new hub". Click on "stats" and when the stats window opens click "hub metrics". You will see your total word count there.
Wow I learned something new tonight thanks guys I didn't even know that.
My last Hub was 3244 + pics (too long? - Nope) Not if you can hold their attention on a 4-5 $ category.
Most of my well producing hubs are at least 800 words with lots of backlinks.
After hearing of hubbers having success with 300 word hubs and no backlinks, I did give that a shot. Quite frankly, the shorter hubs haven't produced much revenue in the past 6 weeks. But I'm going to leave them for the Xmas season. Just to see if they get a seasonal pop. The shorter hubs are SEO and keyword optimized. So that's not the issue.

I'm finishing up a Hub I've been working on for like 4-5 days now, and I realize that I could probably separate it into 2 because it has become more in depth than I thought. I'm feeling really good about it, and I think it will be a good article, but I wonder if it is becoming too long. ...

I personally enjoy short articles that is around 600 - 1200 words.Sometimes i don't like reading a article on the web that is 2000 words long unless its really interesting. All of my hubs so far have been short and specific to the topic. I feel like it is respecting people's time in a sense that we...
