Hub Length

    Hi, I have been going back and trying to improve my hubs and I have noticed 1) My views per page appear to be lower than the average, 2) my hubs appear to be shorter than most others.
    So, my question is: Are my hubs too short? Would some of you kind people mind taking a look to see if you also believe they are short? I would so appreciate it. Btw, I am always open to new friends if you would like to do that as well.

    Thank you!!

    Welcome to HubPages, JanieK smile The information you provide is good but the layout is long. Anyway you can move your Amazon off to the side? try to make it a little more compact rather than have a reader scroll and scroll and yet scroll again. Also, your tags just need tweaking. Make them more focused on the topic rather than with common words. Using the Adwords keyword tool is awesome wink otherwise, you have pretty good scores and just need to bring in traffic. smile

    Thanks for the input. I am not sure how to move the amazon to the side, but I will look into it.

      There's an arrow ---> at the top of the capsules. If you click on it, it moves it to the right side.

        Just to add on, since I just learned this myself, someone gave me the tip to move what I want to be on the right side on top of what I want to be on the left, and then use the arrow pointing to the right to "right justify" it.  I'm not sure if this is necessary or not, but its how I've started doing it.

    I wouldn't say their too short necessarily, but it wouldn't hurt to make them a little longer. It depends a lot on the subject, but for most topics between 700 and 1500 words is a good amount. You shouldn't throw in filler just to pad the word count, on the other hand if you can't come up with at least 400 words i's probably not worth writing about.

    I tend to like the look of Amazon and Ebay capsules at the bottom of the hubs, but I usually only list 4 items so it's not so long.
