I have been adding content to all hubs with a word count of less than 500 on a priority basis before modifying other hubs. As of now, I have to check each and every Hub to see the word count. It would have been very helpful if the details were available on the my account page too.
I think having lots of little details on the main account page makes it cluttered and harder to read.
How about a scan/review page for word counts, sort of like how you check for violations or broken links?
Either that or maybe some type of question mark beside each hub name, and when it's moused over it displays more in depth info such as word count.
Thanks for the support Guys. It is really difficult to check each and every hub page when you have a lot of hubs. I don't think an additional column for word count could hurt. Hestia DeVoto, Your idea could work well too.
This is a good idea. I would also like to be able to see a lot of the stats that you can only see on hubs. On the iPhone app, you can click on the hub title and it will bring up all of the stats related to the hub--even the graph! I think having a "Stats" link next to "Edit" would be so helpful when trying to look back on these older hubs and determine whether they need to be edited.
I like the idea of this too. My hubs are nearly always longer than I intend them to be, but I would still like to know the exact word count of any one hub.

How can I track the word count of my hubs?

We're always being told that when it comes to online writing, more is more. It's recommended that all hubs are above 500 words. With this in mind, it would be nice to be able to check the word count on our hubs without having to go to the hubs and look at the metrics. Maybe another page under...

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 moment?

Would it be possible to introduce a word count limit on forum posts?Look at the forums and you'll find there's never a good reason for a long forum post.Spammers write a long post to advertise their DVD ripper or whatever. Religious fanatics write a long post to preach. Confused newbies...
