I have been trying to look at Hub Metrics more often. In fact, I built a spreadsheet to help me track the Hubs with more dollar signs and the number of words.
I read about the tags and search terms all the time, but what about the length of the Hub? I know content and relevance is king to Google but should I be concern with 500 or 1000 words? I just finished a Hub with 998 words - does it matter that I am technically 2 words short?
I simply need a guide to put my energies in focus to make the hubs as best as they can be.
Gmagoldie there is no hard and fast rule on the number of words, it is only an approximate length that is spoken about.. 998 words is excellent anything more than 700 does catch Google attention and you write excellent stuff so don't worry go ahead and do what you do best.
Personally, I like to keep mine right at about 1200-1300 words, but it really doesn't matter. First, I write out the article in word just so that I can see where I'm at as I'm going. Then I copy and paste it into a hub.
But, if the article is readable and interesting, the number of words doesn't matter. Focus more on writing good content than counting words..

I have a hub just under 1,000 words that gets approx. 100 visitors per day. The hub metrics shows View Duration and Incoming Links at 5 stars. But the revenue potential only shows at a single $. How is that calculated?
