I am not sure. But I think it is sensible to aim for the 700 word minimum. But this 700 includes link descriptions, etcetera.
I think this will ensure your hub gets "featured". (so the search engines can index it)
I am not sure that there is a minimum although a shorter hub under 500 words may struggle to get featured.
In addition, if your hub is longer, people will spend more time on it, which will increase the likelihood that they click on an advert or click on a link to another hub of yours should you interlink your hubs, therefore creating revenue.
Personally, I aim for 1,000 to 1,500 words of text (not counting link descriptions).
I wouldn't want to publish anything less than 700-750 words.
Try adding some commentary at the end if you need to.
But as always, the more the better. Search engines see articles with less than 700 words as inferior, so keep that in mind.

Something happened to me today that I have not experienced before.I did some "gardening" and revision work on one of my featured Hubs... and I was "done editing" it stopped being "featured" and instead became "pending" with the usual "going through QA...

How many words is required to publish a hub. Is it okay to write 150 word hubs and will they get ranked for low search volume keywords?

This word that all of us know had me thinking , how many words can be spelled out of the largest word ever written? Care to try? Create the words as long as short as you wish but it has to be a word

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.
