Is it good to publish a long article with about 2600 words or publish it by parts, (part 1 and part 2)?
Often times its better to put it in parts and link them together at the end of part 1 and beginning of part to and so on. The reason for this is many people tend to get tired and skip over key parts of your article. It also creates more exposure for your articles.
If your topic you are writing about can be split into 2 main groups or more then go for it about 500-1000 words is a good base.

yep, most of the times it is good to have it in parts! Too long articles tends to bore readers unless your long article is pretty interesting.
Great question. I have struggled with this one. I need to split some of my articles. Thank you for the encouragement to make my Hubs better.
Some of my articles are as long as 3500 words and I NEVER Write less than 1200 words. The skill is Writing Always FOR THE READER.. not yourself. In that way, you will realize the importance of original Quality, Engaging and Interesting Content is to the world and to the search engines!
Write Well and people will take the time to read your work, irrespective of the number of words! Another reason for that is that 7/10ths of the content on the web is Low Grade, poorly written and No Contest when up against Quality.
My longer articles actually have a reading/interest level of Twice the Site Average, according to the site stats!
Hope you gain some benefit from this... Welcome to HP btw.

I am in the middle of drafting a hub but am finding it to be getting quite long with a lot I still want to include. Is there a recommended (or actual) maximum length that a hub can be and is there a precedent for dividing into multiple linked parts?Many thanks,Rob

Been here more than a year and not earning much at all. Which is no problem really but I do wonder how this works.I make about 2 dollars every month LOL. Does is accumulate every month to a certain amount and then you get paid, even if it's very little?

An editor reviewed this particular hub and decided that due to the fact that it has been extensively covered they could not get it on Toughnickel. To my surprise I found it doing well on the main site - HubPages.

I was thinking of splitting an article into 2 or even 3 different hubs because it was too long. How many words should our articles have before we can publish them on HubPages? I checked the HubPages FAQ page but the only word count listed there refers to the total number of words that an article...

Hello Everyone! Small fish in a big ocean here. I have a question about article length. There are a few theories on this via Google search, which in turn creates some confusion. So I figure that maybe I should go directly to the source, which would be those who have been at it for some time and...

After trying an extra long hub I've decided to make the next larger opus into a series of linked hubs. How would I go about that? Should I post one a day over a succession of days to establish the sequence, and then, when they're all up, add in the links? Eash one could have a link box showing...
