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 am okay at writing and can go way more in depth then I have, however I am not sure it is necessary to have a good profitable hub. I only do things that are fun to me, but I was just wondering about a couple things.1.) I am suggesting links using the suggested links in hubpages, now I knows its...

In their teachings on writing stellar hubs, the HubPages staff has sometimes said that an ideal hub is 1,500 words long and has sometimes said that an ideal hub is 1,150 words long. Numerous hubs by hubbers on hubbing have recommended that a hub should be at least circa 400 to 500 words long, at...
