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.
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.
Yeah, very long hubs can put you off.I get so carried away reading them I forget what the subject was.
Maybe we should have an insipid blather contest-- to see how many words can be written in that genre.
It would be more like a Hub-War. There are too many people who possess the talent of insipid blather (including me )
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.

what text actually counts towards your hub's word count? I know the words in the text capsule count, but how about rss feeds, news, links, polls, etc.? Is this text included in the word count?

I understand the check boxes at the top of the Hub templates are just suggestions but have been making my Hubs at least 1200 words as I am under the impression that this is the value for the Google algorithm. I could submit a far larger number of Hubs if I were to lower the word count to 1000...

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?

My goal is to write 50,000 words for the month of MarchI am setting this goal so I can get back into the swing of things because it has been a while since I have submitted anything to Hub Pages. This is how I will attempt to do this:Submitting new hubs. I am finishing up my...

I know that there is a discussion somewhere in here, but I couldn't find it. Sorry!I appreciate the new tools to help produce a featured hub, but the word count gets me down. Usually I have no problem getting to 1250+ words, but sometimes my Hubs just don't need that many words. It has check boxes...
