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.

what text actually counts towards your hub's word count? I know the words in the text capsule count, but how about rss feeds, news, links, polls, etc.? Is this text included in the word count?

What happened to my little blue tip box I have become so attached to? I let me know how many words I had, if an image was not clear enough, and let me know when my hub was presentable and ready to publish.

This is really not a big deal, but I am curious why there are two separate word counts for hubs. I am editing a hub and the new feature shows a word count of 1287. When I click on "done editing"...

I know that there is a discussion somewhere in here, but I couldn't find it. Sorry!I appreciate the new tools to help produce a featured hub, but the word count gets me down. Usually I have no problem getting to 1250+...
