Many of my hubs are 500-1000 words. (some more) I do,however, have some that are 350-450 or so. Is that still okay? Some individual hubs simply do not need any more words.
yeah im with you on that,most of mine are 500-1000 but i do have a few short ones but it doesnt seem to have impacted on them.
If my hub is shorter in word length, I try to see if there are relevant videos to amplify the content. One of mine is shorter (for now at least in words) but has a six part video debate... all 6 videos embedded to add to the content value in my opinion.
I try to stay over a 500 word minimum though as a personal target and prefer much more.
hp recommends 250-1000 is the best size
Nelli Hoxie says hub length doesn't really matter for sales hubs
I prefer 500-2000 words.
I have a hub that I wrote to fill a niche on the net when I was looking for answers myself. Since it is basically just conversion information, I found it hard to even make 300 words. Still gets good views though.
Remember, it's harder to get search engines to crawl a new link then it is to crawl further down the same page. This is the case for longer hubs even though the title tag is so powerful.
I try to make most of my hubs at least 800 words in length. While it doesn't have much of an affect on conversion, per say, larger articles tend to organically generate more long tail kewords.
I've never felt that my word count is that important, as I'm sure most are 1,000 or more. I am more interested in putting out a good article. But, I do worry that some of my hubs are a bit too long, so, I make up for that with pretty pictures and videos.
In my opinion, hubs that are just a few paragraphs long seem like whomever wrote them wasn't as interested in writing a good hub as they were in writing lots of hubs for the count. Almost like there was no effort, and I usually skip those.
Heck some of my posts in the forums are longer than some of the hubs out there. But, maybe I am just shooting myself in the foot, for saying too much.

I've been experimenting with different hub lengths and was wondering if anyone has found what they consider to be the best length that a hub should be. I'm experimenting with hubs that are between 1000-1200 words, whereas before I was publishing hubs that were between 600-750 words. Has...

This seems like a promising journey!I've been here for twelve or so days and I have eight articles done. I have another five on the burners, too! My question, would that count, or would I start fresh and push for 30 Hubs? I'm not sure how this challenge works, on that end, but I like the idea of...

I wrote a hub on swimming pools that's around 1000 words. And a lot of my videogame hubs are above 500 words. Since my return on HubPages, I've wanted to know something. Are 500-600 word hubs enough or are they now considered poor? I'm asking this because originally a writer did not need to get...

Is it better to make one large hub that covers all aspects of your topic or to separate those several aspects on a topic into two or three hubs. I'm wondering how this plays out in terms of each of the following: Reader Interest and attention spanHubScoreEditor's Choice possibilityNumber of...

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...
