      I have a hub over 3000 words, but that was not planned, just how it worked out. My best hubs are between 1000 - 2000 words long.

    I think I got one over or around 4000 words. And I have quite a few around 1500 - 2000 +. Sometimes I write like I talk ... too much smile

    I have a hub with nearly 500 comments that is now getting hard to use. It must have several thousand words. Touch the slider at the side and it leaps up or down the page like crazy.

    One day, I will bite the bullet and move some stuff.

      you can limit the amount of comments that are shown which may help. They're still accessible with a click.

      I think my longest is about 2200 words. Most of mine are over 1000, some more, a few less. It depends on the subject. I think most products hubs are shorter in length.

    My longest hub is 3,500 words, but most of mine are 1,500 words or less. I would guess my average must be around 600-700 words though I'm planning on experimenting with shorter hubs. I see many short hubs at #1 or close to it with 400 words or less.

        You mean I've been wasting words - sheesh.

        Right 300 max it is from now on.  That's hardly enough time for me to explain what it is I planned to write about.

          Honestly I think somewhere between 400 and 1200 is a good general range for strictly marketing hubs.

          Other topics may vary, and no doubt should. Know your audience. This isn't just an attention span thing. People are busy. Plus they browse on small phones these days, making long stuff hard on the eyes. Sometimes shorter really is better. No innuendos intended.

          And also, there is that attention span thingie.

          As it happens, I always read your stuff to the end in full, so whatever you're doing seems to be working.

            I read MOST of Mark's stuff.  I always deliberately avoid the last sentence because far too often it's that one that has made me spew coffee all over my keyboard.

    I have hubs at @ 5000 words.

    melporposted 13 years ago

    All my hubs are at least 1000 words or more in length. My longest one is about 1500 words which is my limit because no one will probably read it completely unless it is interesting.

    Pcunixposted 13 years ago

    Most of mine fall above 1,500 and under 3,000.    I have far too many to easily which one is the longest, though if you include comments, I know that some do  approach 10,000.

    My longest has 3645 words, has a high HubScore, but view duration has only two stars and only gets about two views a day. Those with five stars have between 450 and 900 words, and make the most money even if their HubScores are only in the low to mid 70s.
