What constitutes as word count on a hub?
When people talk about word counts on hubs, and the word count in the hub metrics, does that include the number of words in the comments?
That can mean many things... from the number of words that make up the hub or to the percentage and usage of keywords.
The comments don't count. Your word count is based on what is contained in the text capsules.
The word content is all the text that you write in the hub itself *before* the comments-this includes the text capsules as well as the descriptions of the photographs.
Hi homesteadbound - easiest way is to use Word. You can click a tool on there called Word Count and it gives you the count. My understanding from HP is that they want us to have a min. of 400 words. Hope this helped answer your question.

On a Hub of around 600 words, how many tags are appropriate? Also, if you use multiple text capsules, does the word count in all capsules count as the total word count for that Hub?

On another thread, a Hubber suggested that if HubPages had a minimum word count, it would prevent some spammers.I know that a very low word count can get a Hub flagged as substandard, but perhaps it's set too low at the...
