I know I should know this but can't find the answer .. what's the min word count at HP?
As far as I know there is no min wordcount. But if you write amazon hubs you have to write at least 50 words for each product you advertise.
Some poetry hubs i have seen are very short, less than 250 words in total, and hp's needs to address this.
For general adsense related hubs you should be aiming at a min. of at least 800 words rising to around 2500.
As a target aim for around 900-1700, and you shouldn't see any complaints. There was a recent thread on min. word count, can't find it at the moment, but some people thought 300/500 was acceptable. I don't think it is, and to help hp's raise its status it doesn't need more low quality hubs being written.
Not that I am saying poetry hubs of 250 words are low quality,( perish the thought!!) but I think there should be a separate category of hp's that deals with poetry hubs.
Think of it this way, that everything you publish from now on needs to help hp's raise it's PR ranking back to where it belongs.
I'm pretty sure everything under 100 will get flagged as being too short. Poetry is the exception. I have a hub or two under 250 words, most of mine are between 400 to 1400 words.
The current contest wants hubs that are 400 words and up.
cheers .. I had it in my head that 500 was the minimun but I think that was self imposed .. I generally do try to write 500 or so but sometimes it's hard to get past 300 without just adding 'padding'

On another thread, a Hubber suggested that if HubPages had a minimum word count, it would prevent some spammers.I know that a very low word count can get a Hub flagged as substandard, but perhaps it's set too low at the...

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...

If the minimum words for a hub is set 200 HP will get rid of a thousands of sub-standard contents automatically. No hub should be allowed to publish until it has at least 200 words. If possible 300 words. Poems can be...

I have a sense that the mobile community is growing to the point where I think Hub articles over 1000 words are likely too much for those reading from a phone. I am of the mindset that I need to write shorter...

I understand the check boxes at the top of the Hub templates are just suggestions but have been making my Hubs at least 1200 words as I am under the impression that this is the value for the Google algorithm. I...
