word count

    May I suggest a word count be alongside a hubs listing? That way we can tell how long it is before we go to it. Some are just too long sometimes and we don't know it until we go to read them. Just a thought.

      To me, this would be a pointless metric as word count isn't indicative of quality.

      Well of course you do, but this is to let us know the word count on someone else's hub before we go to it  silly girl. big_smile

    hmm sounds like an idea but I probably wouldn't read that many hubs then because numbers like 5000 pages or 5000 words scare me off. Unless of course I didn't have anything to do for the next month while crushing grapes in the backyard.5000 posts hmm should 1 read them all lol. Have a great weekend ralwus!!!!

    wildorangeflower thanks for the reminder about hubmetric I had forgotten about it.

    It's less about word count for me than it is whether the words are any good.  I'd rather read a 5,000-word hub that is awesome than 200 words of insipid blather.

    Shyly disclosing that my 5000 word articles have the best traffic.

    I know what you mean Shades, but sometimes I am tired and just can't read a long hub no matter how good it is. I come back to it the next morning then.

      That's bad writing, not word count.

    Maybe we should have an insipid blather contest-- to see how many words can be written in that genre.

      Oh, like a duel, except with blunt instruments and blindfolds?

    It would be more like a Hub-War. There are too many people who possess the talent of insipid blather (including me wink )

      Or we could go with vapid gibberish which is pretty much the same thing.

    What about adding a statistic report for all of our Hubs showing the word count?  That way when we are spending time on sprucing up our Hubs we know which Hubs are lonesome for words.

    I would like to know which Hubs I neglected.

    Perhaps add the photo count, number of videos and the number of links to the analysis report also.

      Maybe that would help some people. I think, as it is, we already have too much to keep track of.
