Which word count figure is most reliable for the number of words per hub?
The word count figure for my hubs in the new 'Edit-Need Some Goals' feature is different (higher) than the word count figure in 'Hub Metrics'. Why is this, and which is more accurate?
Perhaps one counts picture captions, polls and quizzes and one doesn't?
I think LCDWriter is on to something. I tried to do some experiments on one of my hubs and it appears that the "Edit-Need Some Goals" count includes things like capsule titles and image captions. I think it also includes the word count from your summary. In essence it seems concerned about the total words that are of interest to crawlers. So I think they are both accurate, just different.
Thanks junkseller; I think so too. I'd guess the 'Edit-Need Some Goals' figure doesn't include 'Comments', but it is reasonable to include titles and captions and maybe summaries - these are after all, all an important part of the written hub. Cheers

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.

What constitutes as word count on a hub?When people talk about word counts on hubs, and the word count in the hub metrics, does that include the number of words in the comments?

Is there a minimum word count for a hub?I have a picture tutorial on how to do something, and it looks quite short... it only has around 100 words, and 4 pictures. But that's really all it needs. Any more would just be adding words for the sake of adding words. Is that alright, or should I not...
