Hello everyone. I am new to HubPages, and am wondering if there is a Word Count feature in the article template. If not, do people just paste the text into Word to determine the Word Count? Thanks for your answers. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
Sometimes I have pasted the content into Word, but it doesn't always match the HubPages word count. Sometimes I can click "stats" next to "edit" at the top of my hub when I have saved it unpublished and then I can click on "HubMetrics." The word count is on the top line. However, sometimes when I click on "Stats" I get a message that I don't have any stats yet.
That tidbit of information will show up in Stats --> Hub Metrics.
edit: I see that WannaB beat me by 5 seconds. Tough town the internet.
I have noticed my word count as I am creating my hub. It will be in the top left hand corner. I hope this helps. Welcome to Hubs.
I usually write my Hubs on my computer, and use the 'properties information' to get the # of text I've used. I save it then just copy and paste into HP. Helps prevent loss if I click the wrong button on HP I also keep the urls in a file on my computer too, for quick retrieval when promoting.
As someone already said, you can check word count through HubMetrics. However, last time I checked, each text capsule itself maintains a word count also. So, you can keep track as you're creating the hub, without having to exit edit mode.

I was thinking it may be useful to include the Word Count and View Duration in the Stats Report. I find these two things useful for helping me decide where I need to focus on updating old hubs. Right now I need to go into each hub and click on the Hub Metrics. This is a time consuming task, just to...

Is there any way of checking the word count in your hub?Is there any way of checking the word count in your hub, and do figure captions count in the total word count? I ask because contests specify a word count, but if using lots of pictures with captions in the hub do the words in the captions...

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" and then look at the word count under the "stats/hub metrics" it shows...

Is there a way to view the hub counts for all of your hubs at once? I know you can see the word count of individual hubs if you go to stats, but it would be helpful (and easier) if I could look at all my hubs at the same time.
