Which format (listed in details) is better for a Hub summary?
Nitpicky question alert. I often write countdowns, and for summaries will say something like "Countdown the six best ___!"
One of my articles was edited so the summary now reads "Countdown of the six best ___!"
Personally, I prefer the first format, without the "of", where "countdown" is used as a verb. Seems more dynamic. However, I know it's not always wise to go against editing changes made to your Hubs, though this is a very minute point. Any thoughts?
I would say "Count down" would be the verb, though I may be wrong. I'm afraid I agree with the editor with this one; "Countdown OF the six best..." sounds better.
"Countdown the six best X!" kind of sounds like an imperative, like you're asking the reader to count them down. "A Countdown of the Six Best ____!" would sound best in my opinion.
If it has already been moved to a vertical site, you may, very well, change it to how you want it.
'Countdown of' sounds better though.
I agree with the other two writers here. I think it sounds better with the "of" too.
