Why are there so many of them out there? I'm not a big fan of really long hubs - I lose concentration fast. They seem like a huge waste of time, but that's just me. I'm talking 4000 word hubs etc.
HubPages has a program for such articles. I think these articles fall under the 'Flagship' category. Info can be found in the FAQ's I think
If I had something to say that was that long I would split it into three or four hubs, it makes more sense because you could earn more from four hubs than one long one, I'd say 1000 words in a hub is a decent length.
I have a Hub of nearly 4000 words, and it's my most viewed. Whether people actually read it all the way through is a different matter, of course
I haven't written a Hub that long....yet.
It may be that type of Hub presents a value quite high in readers eyes. They may bookmark it and come back to it often, reading 'sections' of it per view.
Not sure, just hazarding a guess here. Will know when more Hubbers like Camlo above come along and comment that have hubs that long.
Possible, but I think shorter Hubs are generally better to hold a casual reader's interest. As I say, I don't know if my viewers really care to read the Hub right through. It certainly has few comments for the amount of traffic it gets, if that's anything to go by.
Yes, I think that's the best way - my long one was just fun to write.
My longest hub brushes on 3,000 words. I didn't write it for people with short attention spans, I wrote it for fun and for those with an interest in the subject. My sales hubs, on the other hand, are written in a totally different manner.
I'd put it this way: Hub length should be appropriate to the subject, and the intended reader.

So if HubScore reflects quality according to the new algorithm - how come I've got lots of newly unpublished hubs (last 6 weeks or so) which are now getting VERY high HubScores (80+)?Some of them have even lost their skull and cross bones..... Very Odd!It's something of an academic question...

I'm working on a hub providing a beginners guide to programming languages and its getting quite long - I'm definitely going to hit 2000 words with it and will probably go up to 2500 unless I really make an effort to keep the length down.Is that too long? It seems quite a lot for a single page to me...

One of my game guides gets 100 views a week, even though the game came out in 2014. When I wrote it, I didn't really think it'd do as well as it is. Have any of your articles done surprisingly well?

I attempt to try my best to improve my traffic and increase my earnings of Google Adsense, but it seems that I can still earn only a little per day. Do you have any tip and suggestion on how to get more traffic for your hubs at Hubpages?

I think people on average wonder if I am serious or joking and tend to keep a bit distant until they know.anybody have your own theory's?
