What should be the perfect length of a hub?
My hubs are only having text as I am not confident with photos and they are almost within 700-1300 words, is it ok?
One more question I have;
I joined 2 months ago and have 8 hubs.
My page views are 581 among which they are mostly by the hubbers within hubpages and rest as facebook, google or yahoo have stuck to a number for a long time.
What can be the actual problem?
Thanks in advance.
Your hubs are already at perfect length. To get more external views, you will need to learn keyword research, perhaps also how to get backlinks from external sites pointing to your hubs.
Hi shampa. I am not an expert but I can give some feedback to your query.
Your hub length looks fine to me - I read your Mothers page, very nice. I think one has to judge what is too little or too much - depends on the style and the subject. We are supposed to be writing magazine style articles (I think) - so what would you be happy with reading is probably the best measure.
Pictures. Pictures are a pain. But they do help the attractiveness of a page - which may in turn help a reader stay to read. They make an instant judgement when they enter - if it looks nice - more chance they will stay. It's relatively easy to get free pictures, as long as you credit the author. Search HubPages for some proper info on this.
Search traffic. In the last three months search traffic for HubPages has not been good, due to some Google changes. We hope that as the quality of HubPages improves the search traffic will also.
But you can do things to help yourself as well. Are people entering your search terms - think about the title. And is there much competition for that title? I am not an expert in this, and to be honest, I am a failure at it. But if you want to study then search HubPages for information on keywords.
I like your Mothers Hub a lot.
I ran it through a tool I use to help me with keywords and here is what I found.
Keyword Frequency (% of word total)
day 27 (1.6%)
mothers 26 (1.6%)
mother 17 (1%)
mother’s 16 (1%)
The words about are good and relevant to your hub's topic -you want a keyword to be over 1% and under 5 to 6%
The words shown here below won't register with the search engines as a key word and if you look you will see there are some really relevant key word phrases here.
mother’s day 12 (0.7%)
children 9 (0.5%)
mothers day 9 (0.5%)
If this was my hub and I ran the page through this tool I would now go back and add, in proper and relevant places, the words, or phrases that are under 1%.
Note if you have trouble working the word or keyword phrase comfortably in to the hub text you can put it in a comment made by yourself. As long as you do not abuse the use of the comment box for keyword stuffing and put text useful to a visitor to your hub it is a plus. And commenting, even on your own hubs, helps your hub author score too, or so they say.
Oh yes - almost forgot -
If you google these words
you will find the tool I am referring to.
Here is the url - but I think moderators may remove it. I have nothing to do with this tool except as an appreciative user of its totally free assistance.
I agree with the others, your hubs are good and the length is ideal. However, I really do feel you should add pictures - what Mark said is quite right, an image holds a reader's attention, makes the page more attractive and instantly helps the reader connect with the article and make a subconscious decision over whether it is relevant to their search. Also, if you add images with captions, they can be found on their own.
Adding images is really easy once you try it a few times and get used to it - I am terrible with technology and yet find this very simple now.

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you are doing. So I wonder, with some people pumping out huge amounts of hubs, are...

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...

I was just thinking what is the best approach for success with Adsense. Before you say the same old things about SEO and keywords Here are the two approaches:Person A publishes 800-1000 hubs in a year with little keyword research and some SEO optimization.Person B publishes 100-200 hubs in the...

For a long time it has puzzled me how one of my hubs keeps doing great, when it shouldn't. You see, I started a hub on one topic and then changed my mind in the middle of it.Now, back then I had no idea you couldn't change the URL later, so I was horrified when I was stuck with a URL that couldn't...
