At what point is it better to split a long hub ( approx 3000 words ) into multiple hubs?
Apologies from this noob if this is covered somewhere and I can't find it. Question: If I am at 3000 words and plenty of photos, is it best to divide it up and make two articles ( aka part I and part II) in a group, or to leave it as one lengthy article? Pros and Cons?
I'd say split it into two. Find an appropriate place around half-way. If you look at the site when you make up a Hub you'll see that Hub Pages advocate around 1200 to 1500 words to get maximum points for a Hub (not considering pictures and videos)
I could be wrong, but I'd say very few people will read one long Hub of 3,000 words or so all the way through. And even with the shorter Hubs the Headers on each part of it need to be attractive enough to keep them reading. We live in an era where 'attention spans' have declined to an almost frighteningly short amount of time. I blame a lot of it on the 'Information Overload' we're all subjected to nowadays - especially from the world of Marketing and Advertising.
Split it into two, mate. More people will read it; both parts, instead of just the first half of it before tuning out.
wow, 3000 words are way too long, you better split into 3 hubs, I would get bored reading the 1st paragraph
In my own opinion, writing hubs with the same title and branding them as "PART 1" etc is not the best way to go. I'd advice you to use Google adwords to create different titles and then group them together.
The sad pathetic truth is, that in the digital age in which generations of humans have been conditioned into watching videos, TV Shows and movies where another persons imagination is used to share ideas, limiting the viewers own ability to imagine and create their own images, people get bored reading.
These are the kinds of people that prefer others to do their thinking for them, tell them what the point is, provide one-sided evidence and lead them to a conclusion without showing the other side or version of events.
So when you write in depth lengthy articles you lose these slow, narrow minded dolts as they're incapable of focusing their attention on anything that requires they use their own brains.
Peachpurple, proves my point in the comment below admitting to seeing a 3000 word article frightens these readers and they get bored after reading the first paragraph.
I would say any article longer than 3,000 words should be broken into two articles but with only a related title, do not use part II, make the second article stand on its own.
