'When it comes to Hub size, is there a size that is considered too big?
I have a hub approaching 18,000 words. All content on it is relevant to the same video game. I'm trying to see if this works better than having a number of smaller hubs connected through links. I have a table of contents that lets the reader quickly get to each section, along with links at the end of those sections back to the table of contents, so navigation should not be an issue. I am steadily adding sections to this guide, but it is about 70% complete. Is there such a thing as a Hub that is too big?
Im not sure whether there is a word limit per say, however I do think that there comes a point whereby the page will seem too much to the reader and they will perhaps be put off, then try to find another page?
Personally, when I am trying to find things online about a game, I will search for the particular quest names or how to defeat a certain character, so all of the information being on the same page can be offputting- needle in a haystack type thing...
Let us know how it works out for you though!
It's not about how big it is--it's the motion of the ocean.
...Wait, what were we talking about, again?
wow, 18k words are a lot. You should break them into several hubs, connecting to each other. I think 1k words are sufficient for a hub. Too long would be boring, not that, BORED to DEATH!
While it might seem to be too long, the links within the table of content might help a lot. I would try it and see how it goes before trying smaller hubs. I don't think HP has any max word count.
Yeah, I can't wait to compare results in about a year or so. I have another set of Hubs, all smaller and linked, about Mortal Kombat 9 to serve as a control of sorts. It's not a true control since both games may receive different traffic levels.
You may have to reword the smaller hubs so they are not considered as duplicate. Maybe you can try selling as an e-book through Kindle and Nook sites.
Actually, I took down the smaller ones and incorporated them into the larger one to prevent duplication. The guide I'm writing used to be four smaller hubs that received little traffic.

I am wondering if the size of a hub page matters and what is the best way to deal with a long hub page.Let's say I want to write on the Gizoo. I can have a section on tips for using a Gizoo, the history of the Gizoo, the economics of the Gizoo, Types of Gizoos, Gizoo in Art, etc, etc. I...

What is a hub called that introduces a series of hubs and that links to the individual articles of the series? (In squidoo we called that a lensography).

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

Hello Hubbers! I was wondering if there is a recommended maximum length for a hub? I started writing one, and then realized that I have enough information to write a book. So I decided to break the info into eight parts (translation: eight hubs). I started writing part one, then realized that i...

I recently visited a hub which left me perplexed. The hubber made a table of contents which were all links back to the same page. So in essence, the page was just reloading itself. Normally when I see a hyperlink it takes me to another page or opens another page in a new window. This is usually a...
