Can a hub be like 10000 words or more?
I was wondering since it's called a "Hub" it ought to be a "hub" of tightly woven content around a topic? It's impossible to get that kind of detail in just 1500 words or so. So can it be like many more words that that?
In theory yes, there's nothing stopping you from writing more than 1500 words. But people are less likely to read an extremely long hub all the way through. You'd be better off splitting your content into several hubs of around 1000-1500 words.
Thanks a ton for that response. I get that Hmm. Well, more than one hub will not hurt. Maybe it's even better for me.
haha there should be a hubpages contest for the longest hub that will be crazy
you could but i think you might loose the interest of your readers if you're planning to write a long hub. the best way i think is to divide your whole content into chapters and write a hub about each chapter ... at the end you can put them all in the same category so if the reader is interested they can move on to the next chapter with a link at the bottom of the hub ... this way you'll get feedback on specific chapters rather than the whole huge hub.

what factors help you decide if a hub is too long? I know different styles of hubs based on topics and what not help determine how long it is going to be. I worry about what is to many words though.
