Is it better to write long hubs, or a few short ones that are on a similar topic?
I had a a few short ones that I thought I would eventually add to, but I decided it was silly because of how small they were and just made it one big hub. What's a good length for a hub?

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'm sure all of us have felt time-crunched while working on our websites, articles and HubPages. If you have a limited amount of time, what do you think will make your site more valuable in the eyes of Google (i.e. increase traffic): writing a brand new, high word count hub or spending the same...
