Actually, if your Hub was only that big, it would be flagged by the system as substandard. They really should be bigger than two words.
I saw a hub with about 6 or 7 words. And the guy posted a thread wondering why he hadn't made any money from Adsense.
Speaking of Adsense...Is there a way to tell how many tags you can put in a hub or is it a fixed number?
Hi Darkside.. you're great! Want to thank you for your help in recent days. I read your hub on tagging - pretty excellent and recommended to those on this thread - but I was hoping you could tell me ... your subtitle in 'tagging', 'Categories and Tags' states that generalized categories will be beneficial, but do we need to add to the tag section. For instance, I noticed that the tagging article is listed in your tag as 'technology'. Was this also listed in the category and, if so, is it necessary for maximising the promtional aspects?
I'm not sure how technology got in my list of tags. I must have put it in there, but it's not something I would have associated with tagging. But I haven't gone overboard with the list of tags so it's not going to hurt it.
I've also got a couple of tags that are only for my benefit: '30dhcb', which is 30 Day HubChallenge and the 'b' stands for my second attempt. It was so I could just show my 30dhcb tagged hubs in http://hubpages.com/my/hubs and see how they're performing.
And 'howtohub' is what I tag on all my 'How To Hub' hubs. So I can quickly find them too.
Geesh! Usually between 400 words - 1000 - but not more than that because noone wants to read that long online nowadays unless it is really really good.
That sounds right to me. I just signed up with a writing site that requires people use AP style, has editors, and the whole thing - and they expect articles to be between 500 and 1000 words. They're very "search focused" and to know what's expected by most online readers. Sometimes, though (especially recently), I get sick of following rules (suggested, implied, or otherwise) and just make a Hub what I feel like making it; and sometimes those are the Hubs that seem to be most liked. Of course, I write a lot of "reach-out-to-people" kind of Hubs, which is different from "review-the-latest-movie" Hubs.
Having people like them, though, doesn't necessarily amount to lots of traffic. Still, a couple of weeks ago I had someone e.mail me because she was searching for something and couldn't find what she was hoping to find. She found my Hub (one of my "longies"), and it happened that I had written something that "rang that bell" for her. She said I'd put it into words the exact thing she was going through. I was honored and humbled to think something I'd written had "clicked" with someone had gone through something as awful as she had. So, sometimes not worrying about the rules and just writing what you think you should write works well too.

When this site first started I really enjoyed writing here. It was like family and laid-back and unencumbered in many ways. Now it's all high tech and glossy and professional. I haven't written a new hub in a while...
