Which is you longest hub in terms of words? What is the ideal length of a hub in your opinion?
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.
My longest hub is around 1100 words, most are 500-600 words. i heard that 1000plus words hub is the best..
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
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.
1000 words hub is good , more than that make the readers get boring ! unless its very interesting.
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.
Yes, me too Izzy! My hubs have changed alot from when I first started here.
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.
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.
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.

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...

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...

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...

I read the above quote on another thread and was wondering if anyone here can confirm that this is the case. Do you have long hubs, over 800 words? Are they doing well as far as Google traffic goes?Should I try to keep my hubs under 800 words?

In their teachings on writing stellar hubs, the HubPages staff has sometimes said that an ideal hub is 1,500 words long and has sometimes said that an ideal hub is 1,150 words long. Numerous hubs by hubbers on hubbing have recommended that a hub should be at least circa 400 to 500 words long, at...

Alright, so in an effort to improve both traffic and conversions, we should explore whatever myths or curiosities some of us may have. People have often said that an article's length defines quality, at least to the search engines. Personally, i dont believe any of it. Sure, the more words you have...
