One 2000 word hub or complimentary hubs of about 1000 each?
My hub has grown into almost 2000 words! It is possible to make it into 2 complimentary hubs as it details two different methods of a project. I wonder, however, is it better to have one in-depth hub explaining the two methods? Does the longer single hub provide more advertising area and thereby is a better earner?
In your experience, which one would be better? Your advice is appreciated!
Occasionally I have Hubs that have gone over 2,000 words and when possible, I have divided them into 2 or more hubs (usually when I divide each gets longer). The other choice is to make a table of contents. I did this once before and again on a Hub I just published. Hubber SidKemp wrote this Hub on how to do it: http://sidkemp.hubpages.com/hub/TOC
Maybe this will also be a solution to your problem.
I don't know how a longer hub affects advertising area (I suspect there are no more or no less ads on a long Hub unless you add Amazon or eBay capsules making the Hub even longer). Long Hubs can keep your reader engaged for a longer period of time which, I believe, helps the Hubs status with Google. But, others may feel readers will get turned off by a long Hub. They want their info short and sweet.
I just write what I have to say and go with it.
i saw an author that published one chapter at a time and managed to get 11 hubs written im sure an old book she had written already

I thought this article was very interesting. It's by a blogger who tested long posts vs short ones, and found the longer posts did much better:http://www.quicksprout.com/2012/12/20/t … ersions/#.(note: there's a popup that comes up - I just closed it and it went away).

Fellow Squid refugees, as many of us come to the end of our first full month on HubPages, I'm wondering how those edits are coming. What's been your process for slogging through the old lenses, to turn them into shiny new hubs?

I had 11 Editors Choice hubs. I noticed today that I only have 10 of them now. I don't remember exactly which hub lost the EC status but I have a feeling it might be a hub that has become unfeatured due to engagement. If an EC hub becomes unfeatured due to engagement does it lose EC status? And if...
