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.

It seems like it may have been a bit rash in hindsight but I used my first hub to post my my first novel. Any thoughts on the advisability of this in general or comments on how I posted it specifically would be greatly appreciated.http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Spawn-of-a- … ters-Brain

I suggested something similar some time ago but it fell on deaf ears. This isn't hard to implement now that you have developed your style tips and stuff. All you need to add to the "publish now" button is a formula returning true if the word count is more than 100 and false if it's less...

To meet the 'quality' standard to avoid hubs getting sleepy ZZZd just follow these rules:=> A minimum of 1500 words of truly informative, well-written, useful content => A minimum of 5 relevant, high-resolution, properly-attributed photos (ideally your own) => 2 videos (ideally your own)...

I am doing a 20 "such and such" quotes about "such and such" hub. I even went back in after they marked it duplicate and made sure 400 of the words are my words, even though I know people googling it aren't going to want to read my words and are instead just going to be coming...

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.
