Is hub pages looking for at least 200 or 300 words? Will it be flagged as sunbstandard at a certain limit?
Will they ever have a spell checker for forums?
If your hub is really short it could be flagged as sub standard.
All over the place you can read suggestions on word count and the consensus seems to be 400 to 600 words is what makes the best hub.
A few less in some cases is fine and a bit more is okay as well.
You can find all kinds of information by using the search or help options inside HubPages.
I'd say 200 or 300 words would be too short, however I notice your Hubs are very heavy on other content - 5 photos is a lot for the average Hub, but you often have more than 10. So it would probably balance out.
I don't spend a lot of time counting words. I just know if I pull off a minimum of 2 pages I think I'm all right.
300 words, for me, is the bare minimum. It would have be good information and original content too. And at least one image on there.
Otherwise it's just a hit and run hub.
I think it is possible to publish a 150 word hub if you include a picture.
But if your talking about quality hubs, they should be around 800 words, in my opinion.
Well one of my hubs has 1150 words and the other over 900 definitly not too short but I wonder if they are too long?
The forums do have a spell checker. At least they do with my system.
I go by the rule that my hub should attempt to be the definitive guide on a particular topic so most of mine are 1,000 - 2,000.
I save writing short 300 word articles for ezine.

I've seen people saying that they are writing longer hubs and getting more traffic. I've always heard at least 300 words up to 800 or so. Have you found an optimal number to shoot for?

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...
