Hub hopping why are some hubs so short?

    Hub hopping why are some hubs so short?

    So I have just done my first load of hub hopping today and I was so shocked at the low word count on some hubs, one I pasted into a word counter to get a total of 211 words! If new hubbers must go through a review process then how come many hubs in the hub hopper are of such low standard?

    Some people just want to write and don't care. And well if it is poetry it doesn't have to be long.

      Haven't come across a poem yet, more short blog type posts about liking candy or racing results for a horse race for example.

    If you review a material, is it essential to be long?

      I'm not sure lol are all the hub hopping writings articles or can they be blog type posts? I mean it kinda goes against a lot of the things we are encouraged to put in our hubs (as far as I can see as a newbie).

    Longer hubs get more traffic, so content isn't the issue.  About short hubs, it may be because hubbers are reading more articles by different hubbers.  Do yo think hubbers should stay with content they are passionate about?

    Some of the new hubbers are probably not aware of the rules. If they are not new hubbers, they are just interested in blogging for earning, without realizing that their hubs will never be approved. HubPages is quite strict in their review and will not feature any hubs that are less than 800 words long (or is it 1000 words?). So those short hubs will never really have any earnings till they meet the HubPages criteria.

      IS 1000 ENOUGH?

      Yes 1000 is enough to get a featured hub. The Hub Tool's word count goals 700, 850, 1000, 1150 and 1250+ words. To be on the safe side, I have always gone for 1000+ words in my hubs so that they don't get unfeatured due to quantity.
