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.

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and...
