Quick question, I searched a bit around and couldn't find the information if there is an upper limit to the word count for a hub. Can I publish, let's say, also a 25,000 words hub? Not asking for advice if that is a good or bad idea ;-) Just asking what the maximum length / word count allowed is per hub. Thanks, SY
Writing an epic? Looking forward to it!
Lol, yes, at over 12,000 words now ;-) The topic doesn't lent itself easily to be split up, so I thought I try something new and write a truly epic hub about it ;-) SY
That must be something! I bet its going to take some time writing it! You can turn in to a ebook if the subject is right! Looking forward to read it.
You might find yourself splitting it up at the end. When I first started here I had some really long hubs because I really didn't understand how to write a hub when I came...just figured it out as I went along, read the boards, etc. But I found that the long hubs weren't getting read, but after I split them up and repackaged them into separate (but related) topics, people started reading the content.
There is no maximum length for a hub, as far as the rules are concerned.
I did one a while back to check out if there were any limits.
So I did one the size of a novel, but it wasn't a novel.
It was 130,000 words and I started with about 5,000 words, and kept adding to it.
Then I deleted it.
Wow! To take all that time and then delete it! Hahaha, I don't know if I could do that....
Yeah, it was on politics and government, I don't think anybody got further than the first screen.
I guess that was my first published ~:} novel.
Apparently hubs on politics last about as long as fresh fish left on the kitchen counter.
The real trick would be to write the longest hub that people would actually read.
wow that is long. I have a hub that I have been working on for some time, that probably wont be read by anyone other than me and my mother, but I think that will declare at about 10,000 words!

I have tried the learning centre for this and if it is covered there and I have missed it, I apologise.I know that ideally we should create a number of Hubs around a topic when we think this might be a problem but in this very specific case and in relation to the idea I am kicking around in my head...

Hi everybody! Question: Is there a maximum amount of words, images,videos etc. I can put into a Hub before I get some kind of warning message saying "you have exceeded your maximum amount of [images/words/videos] please remove X number of [images/texts/videos] before posting"? Is there a...

I am in the middle of drafting a hub but am finding it to be getting quite long with a lot I still want to include. Is there a recommended (or actual) maximum length that a hub can be and is there a precedent for dividing into multiple linked parts?Many thanks,Rob

Hello Hubbers! I was wondering if there is a recommended maximum length for a hub? I started writing one, and then realized that I have enough information to write a book. So I decided to break the info into eight parts (translation: eight hubs). I started writing part one, then realized that i...

I've just posted a very large hub. Don't know exactly but it must be in the region of 8-10,000 words. It took about 5 hours just to assemble it. Is this too long do you think? I thought of breaking it down, but then it seemed too complex to make sure they were being read in the right order. Any...

My latest hub is almost 1400 words. Is that too long? Is it difficult to read? Let me know what you think. Thanks!http://hubpages.com/hub/Thomas-the-Tank … er-Railway
