Is there an ideal number of words and images for a hub? Is keyword strength a factor and different from keyword density? For example, if I write a hub of 1500 words and my keywords appear 5 times is that hub likely to rank higher than say a 500 word hub with keywords written only 2 times, given everything else is equal?
Mine all vary. I have never concentrated on the amount of words used in a hub. I have a few under 500. Most average 500 to 600 with some going over 2000. I have heard various theories on the amounts, but I have yet to make a solid determination with my hubs in that regard.
There is no perfect length for a hub. It's a good idea to have it over 500 words though, and personally I've found over 1,000 works best in the long run.
Putting in TOO many keywords is called "keyword stuffing" and can mean you get less search engine views.
Try using synonyms instead.
OK many thanks for that. I guess if you're going for content that lasts, has stamina, it could be a longer hub, whereas short hubs might be better for fillers and how to's? Either way it is an art getting the right blend to work.
Appreciate your time.
It just depends on the topic your writing about. Try to cover everything in the hub. If its too big and you can make a series of hubs (different titles - each of them a capable of standing on their own) then go for it. Most of my hubs are over 1k words. Just 2 are 800 or so and 1 is below 500 words (My latest one - I hesitated before publishing as I'm not used to small hubs).
I agree with WryLitt completely
But apparently you should measure the length of any hubs on the subjects of Carbon Credits or Global Warming, by the length of your own footprint!

I'm pretty new at this, so I can really only gauge my hubs' performance against one another!This one is one of my earliest hubs, yet it has fewer views than ones that I've published just a few days ago.http://hubpages.com/hub/How-To-Choose-T … k-CookwareGranted, it's only been 3 weeks, but...

Is there any limit to the number of keywords and links one can have in a hub?For example, can I choose 20 keywords for my Hub and have 3 links (to the external sites) in my Hub body?Thanks for your help!

There are tons of hubs on keyword selection and the various tools one could use to make the process easier.But, like most things 'net - they are mostly copies of copies of copies or poorly strewn together theories by intermediate writer-marketers ..So I ask... what was truly masterful, what made...

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...

I have been here on HP over 3 years, and still don't fully comprehend the concept! I get that they are words and/or phrases that reflect the content of your article, aren't tags, and that they're not to be 'stuffed'. Apparently I have some block to this, since some of my articles have...

I've spent the last few months experimenting with different hub lengths and layouts on sales hubs and trying to be rigorous about it. It's impossible to do this in a completely statistically valid model with this relatively small number of hubs (about 350), but after trying different styles of...
