Disclaimer: I'm new to HubPages.
I was going to add a section to one of my hubs -- a 'Prospective silver stocks' section for my 'Investing in silver' hubs. After the fact I started wondering whether it would just be better to create a separate stocks hubs -- the investing page comes in at ~1000 words.
Is there any consensus on what is best, (i) long (1500+) authoritative hubs, or (ii) a network of smaller, interlinked hubs?
Interlinking a series of related hubs is always a good idea.
As for length, I'm afraid you'll get lots of differing opinions. I believe that 400 to 500 words and up is fine as a minimum, while others will tell you the best-performing hubs are 1,000+ words.
A lot of text can sometimes deter readers. If you are going to have longer hbs, you may want to use sub headings or pictures to break it up a little, give the eye a little break. I would go for more than one hub in this instance my self. You can interlink them as irohner said and put PT 1 and Pt 2 in the titles.
That is so true. In most cases an article can be cut down and doesn't need to be so wordy. I've seen several that were too long and I could have said the same thing with half the words.
People are busy and don't have time. If your story takes too long they will lose interest and move on.
besides number of words, i find traffic volume is very very important too
600 to 750 words per hub works best for me. Besides you need to count for some space for other gadgets that you want to keep on your hubs as well. and if you do 1000+ seems a bit too long. If the title is not too catchy, people might get put off by how lengthy it might look to read at initial glance.
I just deliver the message as short and sweet as possible, it varies. I feel if its not interesting the reader will not move on so content (once again) is King!
You can do a "round up" hub, and give sort of directory to your relevant hubs on a given topic. The HubMob has a weekly roundup of the participating hubs, put together by RMcrayne, which can give you a good model for implementing that strategy.
One main hub and several smaller hubs OR several moderate hubs ALL grouped together.

I was looking at the new layout on a hub and it made me think that the 'go to last comment' does not really show up as much as it might. I sometimes get comments from people who are not regular HubPage visitors and they might not notice this wording or know where to leave a comment,now.Would it be...

I'm wondering who uses MySpace or other sites to promote your Hubs? And what is the best way to go about doing that?I got some success by sharing my hubs with friends the last couple days by email- but I'd really like to build a nice strong network and somehow tie it all together with my hubs here,...

I thought articles should be limited to 1-2 products, however I have seen list based articles with multiple products (ideas for gifts) on niche site, Holidappy. Would...

Hey all,I have about seven hubs ready to go but I'm hesitant to publish them all at once. Has anyone had experience with publishing multiple in a single day? I know some hubbers are taking on 100 hubs/month as a challenge.More or less, how many is too many to publish in a single day?Thanks

Calling anyone who has considered having multiple accounts.I don't mean to do anything underhand with them.I've been learning to use HubPages by writing random product focussed hubs. I am now ready to do something a bit more meaningful. Off the top of my head I can think of 3 topics that I could...
