      There is none published for the obvious reason that it will be abused by thousands of spammers writing the absolute minimum length hub.

      Keep your hubs to a minimum of 500-1000 words and you'll be fine.

        I do not think more words only make a hub attractive. Beyond word limit, the approach is more important

          I am not sure what you are responding to. Wilderness gave you what is considered a good range.

          Basically if the hub in edit mode has an insufficient content warning, you need to add more.

    A comparison test was done too by one blogger. They use to have lengthy posts but shortened them down to 200-400 words to make it, to the 'point' and 'quick consumption' by the audience. Google loved the lengthy ones but not the audience. In the end, they lost with Google but their traffic climbed. Weird tongue you'd think it would be traffic that's a concern to Google and not just length of the post.
