    Yes, I enjoy using it. It makes it easy and fun to build high-quality hubs. I haven't proven out the traffic stats yet, but I trust the research done by Team HubPages that went into this guide. And all the hubs I've written with it have been featured.

      It certainly makes it easy and enjoyable.  I never publish a Hub now if it does not tick the boxes whereas before I did not know if it had ticket them.  A great feature.   Thanks for your comment.

    I like it too. If I don't hit a certain standard, it make me go back and do a bit more work. This was a great idea Hubpages had.

      Exactly, it  hold us to a better standard.  Thumbs up to Matthew Meyer for this.  Thank you for your comment.

    Yes, I think it's a useful tool. It's a good visual benchmark for how I can improve. Whether it's gotten me more traffic however, I can't say.

      I guess time will tell.   Certainly I have increased my traffic but that may be because I have increased the number of Hubs I had from the start.  Thanks for the comment.

    Yes, I love it! It breaks the process of building featured hubs down into easy units, makes sure I don't miss out any important elements and is just great fun and user friendly.

    It's also really encouraging to see those little ticks appearing and does encourage you to aim to fill the whole thing with maximum ticks. I know that probably just means that I've been well-trained like one of Pavlov's dogs but I have to say, it works for me!

    I hope that it will have a positive effect on hub quality across the board. It's a great tool and a stroke of genius on the part of whoever thought of it, I think.

      Great answer and definitely genius on the part of Matthew Meyer which is why I thought it might be nice to give a little bit of feedback for something which makes building a Hub a lot more fun.  Thanks for the comment.

    I think the word count is very useful. Usually I have my hubs planned out before I start.

      Yes, another useful feature.  I am afraid mine are planned out in my head. Generally I use word and then cut and paste into capsules.   Word has some additional  features, combined they are terrific.   Thanks for your comment.

    Yes, I am more motivated doing things with some goal since it set ups my direction on a specific activity I make. But, currently my goals are on hold cause I am little busy at the moment.

    Yes, I just find it a nice way to keep track of progress and see if man is on the right track or not.

      It certainly is, definitely takes out the hit and miss aspect of writing Hubs.  Thanks for your comment Mathewson

    It's a good feature, easy to use and affirms sound practice. I've been revamping older hubs recently and this tick box evergreen reminder has come in really handy. The word count is nicely rounded off at ....is it 2500 words? Imagine if it increased...3, 4000!!!!!! Mega Hubs!!

      chef-de-jour, I have done the same, really an eye opener to see where I did not quite hit the mark.  Great feature for revamping older Hubs - 2500 words are probably sufficient for one Hub, maybe save something for the next Hub! Many thanks.
