What Are My Goals for the 30 Days/ 30 Hub Challenge?

It's been a month since I started publishing hubs, updating old ones and participating on the site. This has increased my earnings significantly, so I decided to give it a turbo boost with a 30 day 30 hub challenge. Last month, I tested a lot of theories. I learned many interesting things and I can't wait to put them into practice. This is the reason I decided to take this challenge. I believe I know enough about HubPages now, that my hubs will generate earnings at a much quicker rate. Of course, this will be seen in the next few weeks. It's important to plan these challenges and set goals. You can't arrive at your destination without a proper road map!

What are my goals for this hub challenge?

  1. I want to create 30 hubs consisting of informational articles and product hubs. Really great informational articles generate traffic. How? Quality content is shared by readers. On the other hand, helpful product hubs increase revenue.
  2. I want to increase my HubPages earnings. My goal is to earn $100. in the month of May.
  3. I would like to get at least 500 visitors a day.

What is my 30 Hub / 30 Day Strategy?

  1. I plan to write 20 informational hubs and 10 product hubs. The products and articles will be on the same topics of the hubs I have now. That way I can just link them to relevant hubs. They get indexed a lot faster that way.
  2. I am going to build the backlinks for each hub right after publishing. That pushes them up the Google serps in a shorter amount of time.
  3. I am going to publish multiple hubs on several days to see the results it has on traffic. I know what you're thinking. Relax! I already created outlines for 11 of my hubs. :)

Today is May 8, 2012. Here are the stats to my HubPages. I love to keep accurate stats about my account so that I can determine what strategies work.

  • Author Score 96
  • Hubs 35
  • Followers: 253
  • Traffic Today 116
  • Traffic 7 Days 964 page views / 731 impressions
  • Adsense earnings 1.33
  • eBay earnings . 55
  • Amazon earnings 0
  • HubPages earnings 4.89

My next hub is going to reveal my hubpages earnings for the month of April 2012. Be sure to subscribe, so you don't miss a hub. Please, take the time to share this hub with everyone by email, facebook, twitter, pinterest, StumbleUpon or your favorite social media site.

Good luck - seems you are right on track with your goals. I too am on a journey, 100 hubs in 100 days. Today is Day 53 for me and I have 56 hubs published. I'll be interested to see how to continue to find topics.....sometimes I am swimming in them and other days I am blank. Good luck. I'll be watching :)

@WorkAtHomeMums Thanks for the encouragement. I am going to follow your progress. That is a huge challenge, but I'm sure you can do it. You're already ahead of the game by 3! As for topics, think of all the things your friends, neighbors and coworkers ask your advice on. :)

I am doing the 30 day challenge.. I have many article ideas written down but need to write still. It is definitely interesting to see the stats and what does and does not seem to work.

@SKCandles I wrote 11 of my articles on paper. Have to publish them which will take time because of all the tables I have to create for the stats. Amazing the things you can learn when you pay attention to the numbers! ;) I'll be checking out your hubs. Kids are home (from Navy and school), busy for next five days...

I did this last year here. It ended up being all creative writing type stuff but it really helped crank out other title ideas! Good luck.

@cmahan I tried to do it a couple of years ago, but gave up when I didn't see immediate results. Now I have a method that works, so I know it will be profitable. Thanks for stopping by! ;)

Nice work breaking down the challenge. I need to organize myself better so I can write more hubs, similar to how you broke down the different type of hubs you're writing. Hopefully this will help get me motivated.

@Matthew Maktub I find that setting goals helps one get to their destination a lot quicker. Once you draw a path to a destination, it's a matter of taking steps to get there. Thanks for stopping by. Good luck!

Hi Supermom!

I was just wondering if you were able to make your goal of $100 during the month of May? Or the goal of 500 visitors per day?

I actually started my 30dc on May 8, so I have a few more days to publish my 22 remaining hubs. I wanted to do at least one a day or two every other day, but I got really sick. After that, I had a series of events that had me driving all my kids all over. (Three of our 4 cars were in the shop and the kids go to school and/or work.) So, the answer is no. I didn't reach my goals by the end of May, but I will reach them before July. I am going to share all the details in a future hub. ;)
