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.
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.
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.

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

I was really excited when I saw this new feature because I thought it was a great way to support, get to know and interact with other hubbers...But...for the most part, with some exceptions it is a load of garbage. When I think of all the painstaking time I take putting a hub together...and I...

Why are some hubs included for hub hopping?I recently started this interesting activity here. When thousands of hubs are published daily, on what basis are hubs selected for hub hopping. It is mostly new hubbers, but I have seen hubs of established hubbers with more than 150 hubs. I never saw any...

I have read numerous hubs while hopping that I thought would be great if the writer did some editing or word smithing. I thought it would be nice to let people know that thier piece could be so much better with out trying to hurt anyones feelings. I have commented on a couple of pages...

I like hopping hubs, learning new things and meeting other hubbers. However, I have absolutely no interest in reading hubs on religion, politics, poems, fictional stories or some far away place I will never visit so I skip them. Usually this is no big deal but I just hopped about 30 hubs and no...

When I'm hub hopping I generally don't read most of the hubs I come across because I have one purpose in mind; find low quality or spam hubs.It seems to me like reading through each hub is somewhat of a waste of time, so I skim through each hub to make sure that I can weed out as many...
