    Is there a maximum number of words allowed on a HubPage?  For example, would a 3,000 word article be accepted?

    Welcome to Hubpages! smile

    There's no maximum number of words, however, there's a minimum number of words which defines a specific quality HP would like to maintain.

    The minimum would be around 400-500 with the exception being poems/poetry.

    I've two articles that have over 8000 words to them, just to give you an idea.

      Thanks! - The thing is, I don't see very many longer Hubpages.  I'm going to have a look at yours.

        The article about my father is over 3000 words. But, on average I stay between 700-1500 words. The articles that have over 8000 words are my community based hubs- Women Writers In Hubpages Community. These two hubs have profiles and links, and pictures of specific women who write within HP's community.

        Btw- You're welcome. smile

    If you plan to write a long hub it's best to either:

    1. Break it down into hubs that you link together, with different subtopics of the original topic in each hub OR,

    2. Make sure it's a topic that will grab and maintain interest from the reader. Most internet searchers are browsers, so will often not read more than a few sentences when looking at a page, and often not read more than 500-1,000 words even if you do get their interest early on.

    Hey, folks. I would love to write 18 sub-hubs on the same topic. That would get me to 100. Based on my profile, any ideas? I am at a loss. I am looking for a "distant" point of view, if you know what I mean. smile

      Well, no ideas yet, other than if it's 18 sub hubs then the topic would need to be fairly complex to be  broken up into that many  parts, wouldn't it? You have several interests (from your profile page) what interests you, that could be broken up into that many parts. I'm saying this, because the answer is within yourself somewhere.If that makes sense. lol

          What really interest you, at this present time, that you would find unable to convey to me in just a couple of hubs ( something that I had little or no knowledge of, this would, in all honesty offer a huge playing field). Remember, if it really interests you at this present time then it will be interesting to others, even a great niche. big_smile

    Physics, I'm thinking physics.. Where would you begin, what would you teach me.

      What would you care about?

        I'm thinking about this, there are actually a lot of things that interest me, however, I have little knowledge. Still thinking, however, I have to define if they belong to the discipline of physics or not. I'll be back, as Arnie would say.

        Ok, these are just thoughts.(if there not right here, no problem, we're brain storming right) Years ago, I used to go out with this man who was into Platonism (doubt that's physics) I didn't get it, but I used to nod like I kind of got it (lie, I didn't). If only I'd had the internet to get lots of different ideas  or other explanations about what it was, a different teacher. Another thing, I'm also interested in,(really interested in but highly skeptical about) is parapsychology. I don't understand the research methods they use, how they measure there results, if there's anyway that outcomes can be measured properly, scientifically. There have been so many frauds. And, I don't think scientifically. These are just thoughts, but were moving.
