Hey everyone, I checked my word count on my latest article: How To Make Passive Income: Ways To Make Money and I didn't think I had those many words and it came out to be 2,211 words. Portion of those words came from related articles but it is still my lengthiest article yet. I am so proud. I need to write over 1,500 words often..
That is a whole lot as well. I guess when it comes to writing you just get so into and don't worry about the word count at all.

I actually tried to trim it down as much as I could LOL. I think it really depends on a topic and how good you know it. At least for me some topics promote more words than others
I prefer to stay around 500 words, I get weary reading 1,000 word+
Just my opinion lol

Which word count figure is most reliable for the number of words per hub?The word count figure for my hubs in the new 'Edit-Need Some Goals' feature is different (higher) than the word count figure in 'Hub Metrics'. Why is this, and which is more accurate?

On another thread, a Hubber suggested that if HubPages had a minimum word count, it would prevent some spammers.I know that a very low word count can get a Hub flagged as substandard, but perhaps it's set too low at the moment?
