Do you prefer reading hubs that are short and to the point or long and drawn out?
I am not talking fictional here...informational...do you prefer them short and to the point (say between 400 words and 1000 words)? or long and drawn out, obviously written to try to make them long. what is the appealing number of videos and pictures...and what is to many? I dont want to know what makes google or adsense happy...what makes you the reader happy.
Definitely pretty short and to the point. I don't have time to read long articles. I rarely watch the videos either. I enjoy the photos, though.
I don't read for length. I read for topic and quality. A well-written, interesting, long hub is better than a short, not-so-well-written one. The same goes for a well-written, interesting, short hub being better than a long, not-so-good one.
It depends on the topic. Sometimes I would like for hubs I read to have been longer.
I generally enjoy the short ones most. My attention span is something close to a gerbil on methamphetamine... But if it is a subject that highly interests me I don't have a problem with a little more lengthy articles. I just don't want to hear how intuitive and amazing someone's cat is for 1700 words.
It depends on the topic I'm reading a hub on and the quality of the content. If there's just one long block of text I get bored easily and my mind starts wandering. I prefer short hubs, because I have a short attention span, but I'll read a long one if it's interesting enough.
Both. I want a hub that is short enough not to bore me, but inclusive enough to make me feel like my question has been answered and I wasn't wasting my time.
I don't care for long drawn out ones unless they are funny and I'm laughing and smiling a bunch. I loved when Kimberlyslyrics popped the question and asked Cagsil to marry her. That dragged on for some time, but I kept reading all those comments and giggled through the entire read. My husband was trying to watch t.v. and was threatening to throw me and my laptop out of the room.
I like to be able to read and see what the person's talking about. If it's informational or nonfiction especially. I don't want a long drawn out explanation- I want a main argument with supporting points.
Length does not matter to me. I enjoy reading interesting topics that are well written and has a logical approach. The existence of quality in a hub is also high on my list. When I find hubbers that have high quality and interesting topics, I choose to follow them and provide comments to the subjects they have written.
You bring up an interesting question and for hubbers it is important to know what readers are looking for in a hub.
Thanks for asking the question
Usually the shorter ones -- I like them to be concise. I click away if the writer rambles.
With well-written hubs, I enjoy them in series. I think it's more effective to link a group of related hubs rather than write one extremely long one. Using subheads helps the reader.
The biggest turn-off is clicking on a hub and it's nothing but a commercial for a product or a link to another site. I stop reading hubbers who do that. If the title is obviously a review of a product, fine, but if the title is just a come-on with no useful content, that blows it.
It depends on if I am looking for a short story or something that requires a lot of info. Example: If I were looking for ways to promote my website I would want an article with as much info as possible.
It honestly depends on what I'm reading about. Sometimes if it's just advice I'm looking for then a shorter hub is fine. But if it's a topic that really fascinates me then the longer the better provided it's well written!
Definitely a short hub. I especially don't like when its an instructional hub and they give me this whole backstory that isn't really relevant to the info I want.

Do people really read long, information rich hubs or prefer short punchy ones?As a bit of a completist, I usually research the topic first and if I find that the internet lacks a 'one stop' resource on the subject, I usually create a long information rich hub. I am not sure if people really take...

Would heaven be appealling to you if athiests were there? Even better, lets include all Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, wiccans or any belief system outside of Christianity?
