I was thinking about doing a hub of some photos I took when I was out at the zoo the other week. I'm guessing there aren't really any benefits of doing this, other than maybe some nice comments from other hubbers. I was wondering what the minimum number of words I would need for it to have any chance of finding its way onto a Google search ... or in fact whether there is really any point in bothering at all?
You could either have a hub about your trip to the zoo. Some personal recommendations and tips would be of help to anyone else planning on making a visit. And use the photos.
Or you could research information on each individual animal, if that's what interests you, and add the images to accompany each hub.
I think the answer you will get is anywhere from 200 to 1,200 words. Just do it. We all want to see photos from your trip to South America! It may not make you money, but it will make us happy!
I will do some hubs on that soon I promise. and I'll put the pictures in them. I just don't have Word at the moment, which makes it difficult to write anything. As soon as I sort myself out with a Word Processor of some kind then I will get on the Venezuela hubs.
You can get views from image searches. I know of several photo hubs.
If your Hub has less than 100 words, you will get an automated "substandard" warning from the HubPages system.
It's true that a lot of authors ignore the substandard warning. But then again, so do people who post duplicate content. However, triggering those warnings also triggers an automatic reduction in HubScore so if you care about that sort of thing, it's good to know about.
And since Jen has an AuthorScore of 90, she seems like a quality content producer who would care to know.
Misha, a few weeks back someone asked and Maddie's answer was to have at least 100 words. The forums have been so busy, I can't find the post.
I love pix
I try for at least 600 words; labeling pictures might help you get there. I thought I would let you know that there is a free program like word (I do free stuff samples & freebies lol my hobby) It is called Openoffice (dot org) it is totally free I was without word for 2 months b4 a friend told me about it ugh
I had to stop in & share that lol Have a great night
Thanks guys for your comments. I don't think it will be a problem for me to get to 100 words, can probably manage 200. I wanted words to be an accompaniment to the photos rather than the other way round, but I'm sure I can figure something out. Wouldn't want to be labelled as substandard!!!

Lately as I hubhop, I am finding lots of photo only hubs. Are these considered low quality? It would seem that hubs need to have text of some kind besides a title. I started out flagging them as low quality, but I don't want to put moderators to extra work if these are considered acceptable.What do...

Whats going on with the very short and only photo hubs?I try to hop a few and am unhappy with what is being submitted.Why does HP allow only photos without much writing?And why isn't there a program to disallow a Hub of 100 or less words?These are making HP look too spammy...

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 the poetry section.

I been seeing lots of hubbers that have hubs only of pictures and yet they have hundreds of fans..Is this allowed on hubpages? I take my time writing each and every hub with detail information about each topic and yet my fans are not nearly as close to the fans of photo collections, I not saying is...

Along with the Google effect lately I've seen a lot of forum posts about spam, and every time I hub hop it is obvious that there is a lot submitted here of both spam and simply substandard hubs.I would suggest that the following rules apply to the first 5 (or 10 or 20?) hubs by any new...

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 moment?
