Is there a word or character limit for Hubs? Is there a recommended range or maximum?
I like to stick with a minimum of 300 words on new hubs - though i've got a few that I've put out lately that have gone in the 2,000+ range. >.>
There isn't a length limit, unless you are doing a flagship or capstone hub which have a minimum word count. I would say that your goal should be to provide a fair amount of information to cover the subject. If you have a topic that can be covered in 100 words, then do so. However, most will be longer then that and some hubs are really long and very good.
If you are worried about it becoming too much to read then make sure it is broken up into sections that have titles to help one skip information they aren't interested in.
No limit allows you to express yourself freely. The common ranges are 300+ words. Flagship hubs do have specified minimums.
Personally, I wouldn't make any Hub that is under 300 words.

Beginning tomorrow (1/28/2015), all newly published and edited Hubs will be subject to an increased words per product limit. Instead of 50 words for every product, a Hub will be required to have 100 words...
