    On average, how many words does your Hubs contain?

    I was wondering on average, how many words do you make your Hubs? Do you try to hit the 700, 850, 1000, 1150, 1250+ marks?

    Do short or long articles get more attention for you?

    My better performing hubs tend to have 1200-2200 words.  The shorter ones without videos get much fewer page views.

      Thanks for the reply, I may try to expand the hubs I have before I work on adding more. I have several that are under the 700 word mark. I haven't wrote many 2,000 word articles though, may have to try a couple! smile

    Most of mine are right around the 1250+ mark. I always aim for that, but usually go a little over. If they get to be more than about 1400 words, I'll either try to edit them to make them a bit shorter or break the topic up into two hubs.

      Splitting it into multiple hubs sounds like a smart idea, I may have to consider something like that.

    Some of mine are over 2000 words but most average around 1500, depending on the topic. The longer hubs, which are mostly evergreen, tend to attract a steady flow of visitors. I did write a few shorter hubs when I first started, to coincide with a sporting event that was taking place. These were short term.

      Thanks for replying, I'm gathering the mid to long size articles tend to get more steady views in the long term like you're saying, short hub = short term traffic. Kind of makes sense I suppose.

    I usually write a detailed hub that contains around 1200 words. I normally try to hit the 1250+ mark but I don't write sloppy to achieve this.

      I just posted a new hub with around 1250 words, will see how well it does. smile

    I'm not about to go through them all to check for sure but if I had to take a wild guess I'd say the majority of them are probably 1000-1200 words. Yeah, I'm a blabbermouth.

      It seems that's about the average length of a hub from the answers I've gotten. smile

    Mine range from 800 to 1500 on average. The longer the better. Posts exceeding 1250 words have the best results on Google.
