Without going back and checking all of my word counts, I think my longest one is right around 1500 words. I think except for my two poems, all of my hubs have at least reached HP's 1250 goal.
Mine is 1600 words. It's a review about a revenue sharing website.
I believe it is an article I did about eggs for a writing course I did. I work as an egg grader and added my first hand knowledge plus some research items. http://diana-lee.hubpages.com/hub/THE-M … RS-OF-EGGS
My longest hub about the psychological effects of breaking news is 2256. I believe it's the longest, others may come close.
I have one or two over 3000 words I think and several somewhere around the 2500 mark. Plus a few more between 1000-1500, and still more that average about 900!
I don't set out with a word number in my mind, the subject matter just seems to take over and I go with the flow!
My longest Hub is over 10,000 words and is a collection of poems. I find that longer Hubs generally do better on search engine results, primarily because they show for a greater number of search queries. For article Hubs, I recommend at least 1,500 words for best results. It's increasingly more difficult to rank Hubs on search results pages, and, therefore, it is more important than ever to give comprehensive information.

I just wrote my longest hub to date, and wonder if it will be read. I know that the guidelines recommend up to 1500 or more, but will people read something that hits about 2500?

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some common threads in there. What content of yours is holding on to its ranking and...

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?
