How many words is required to publish a hub. Is it okay to write 150 word hubs and will they get ranked for low search volume keywords?
A 150 word hub isn't a hub article. That's about the size of a comment post on a forum thread or a comment left on a hub article.
I wouldn't expect it to rank anywhere on any search engine with only 150 words.
Don't assume the requirement is 250-300 words either.
As far as I know, 400 would be the absolute minimum for anything that isn't a poem/poetry.
The average quality page, depends on the topic and how much information you want to give your reader. I would suggest writing articles that are 700 minimum and 2500-3500 words at most.
Just remember, the average reader is going to have a short attention span for reading online articles, so make sure your page is nicely grouped in paragraphs which are not extremely long.
At the very minimum.
Successful articles on Hubpages would have to exceptional and unique to garner any amount of views from so few words.
Ideally your hub should read like a magazine article, with as much information as possible.
The more information you add, the more words, the more chances you will have of being successful, as you will have more ways to describe what you are writing about and use more keyword terms that searchers can find your hub with.
I would say aim for a minimum of 700 words, a lot more if possible.
Thanks, so which is the best of the following ideas? Creating a shorter hub to target a single keyword that gets 100 searches per month or create a hub of 700 words to target four or five keywords in the same hub?
Thanks, I'm a little confused about how to target all the four long tail keywords in a single article. Would I choose one phrase for the article title and the other long tail keywords as subtitles in the article?
More or less.
Don't forget too that every single word you write is a keyword. So you might hit on a searched for keyword phrase, or you might miss that target and hit another keyword phrase.
But the more words you put in a hub, the more chances you have of hitting the spot.
Just be very careful that your main keywords never get overused. That's the trick in this game (I am still learning myself) - use synonyms where possible, the more the merrier, because those help Google, which uses a computer algorithm and not a real person, to understand what your hub is about.
Get the balance right, and Google will send you the correct traffic. HP is very powerful platform, don't forget.

how many words must be written at least in the hub ?

I'm having an issue deciding what keywords to go after. Most of the lower competition words I'm not as interested in and it takes me longer to write since I'm not enjoying. But, most of the things I'm very interested in are harder to rank for but I can pump out hubs on those subjust easily. So, do...

I was looking at my google analytic stuff for a hub that is a top performer for getting traffic. One keyword was one of those long tail ones, and had nothing to do with this hub! What does a torn ligament have to do with swimming pools! I got to thinking this keyword might just be one of those long...

And it's right under our very noses. What is it? Stuff that you're interested in!Your hobbies, your work, your experiences... do a bit of keyword research to see how many other people are interested in it and what search terms they're using to find it, then write about it (then rewrite, spell...

When using the Google Keyword Tool, should you generally try and use as many keywords from the relevant phrase or word as possible in the text of your hub? I am planning on writing this fitness article, and I would like to get as much relevant targeted traffic as possible. The monthly traffic is...
