Hi,I am new at HubPages.I have a question to the prominent hubbers.Actually how many words of article should I write to be a good hubber?Please help me by giving your suggestions.Thanks!
Hubpages says 300- 400 words, but Google loves anything above 700 . Since it is Google that brings in the cash you might as well cater to Google's fancies and make your work profitable.
I basically think your articles should have enough content to grab the attention of the reader and the search engines.
Though I may not fall among the prominent hubbers I just thought I had the answer to your question.
Welcome to HP and enjoy yourself here..
Thank you sofs for your cordial support.I will keep your suggestion in my mind always before writing hubs.
Thank you Web Addict for your valuable opinion.
@bangla-news, err.. I haven't really contributed anything useful in the thread but I appreciate everyone's insights. I never even knew there was a quota for words. In Wizzley and Squidoo, I'm always warned about articles or lenses that are too short. Plus, there were too many things you need to do. I'd put my cents on HubPages compared to the other sites.
I agree with Sofs - it also depends on the article too. A produce related article can be shorter as long as you get all the main facts out quickly - often readers don't want to see 1000 words on a product. However, if it's a 'HOW TO' article then readers may expect far more detail...
Anything over 50,000 words is acceptable. However, you want to go for at least 150,000 if you want to be a good hubber.
Are you talking about total hubs or a single hub?
Haunty is talking about the number of characters I suppose.. may just be an oversight .
Words across all hubs. If you divide it by 600, which is probably the optimal length for hubs, you get an 80-250 range. Now that we are on subdomains I consider this the optimal number of hubs an account should have. If you go beyond that your traffic might suffer. I'm of the mind now that you should have separate accounts for separate topic areas you write on.

I used to be totally addicted to HP, couldn't wait to log on everyday to see what was happening, who and what was popping in the forums, what interesting hub made HOTD, and of course, how my stats and earnings were progressing. I looked forward to the rush I got from clicking "publish"...

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 log on every day, and it seems that I always find negative things popping up in the forums. I am sorry that so many people are struggling on HubPages. From SEO issues to having popular hubs unfeatured for a multitude of reasons, it seems very discouraging for any newcomers. When I first got here...

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the editor that read it decided that it was no longer going to be featured. I was told...
