It's showtime HubMobsters First of all a big thanks to all the HubMobsters who participated in last week's HubMob. You have given away some excellent advice on finance and money management. We had a total of 35 HubMobs published on the subject! Well done!
Let me share with you the good news. I've just received a 'special message' from the HubPages HQ This week we are having a prize for the best HubMobs
For this week we are going to a lighter topic where all of us hubbers have something to say. This week HubMob topic is:Hub About your favourite entertainer Yes, we all want to hear about that teenager "crush" you had. We want to know who is your favourite singer, comedian, actor or even cartoon character (seek help now!). Did you ever meet your favourite actor or singer in person? Tell us how did you handle meeting him. Tell us who would you like to meet and why. Show us your knowledge about that special person you are a fan of.
Some ideas for a HubMob are: - Your favourite singer/actor/comedian/sports person/cartoon character - Best show you have seen: Tv/ theatre/ movies - Places to go for a fantastic entertaining day/night out - Why are you a fan of ... - Whatever happened to ...
3.Choose a relevant title for your HubMob and feel free to use the tags that I suggested and add your own tags. To get a good ranking in the search engines make your title relevant to your hub content and avoid starting your title with "Weekly HubMob"
3. Write an awesomely comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea.
Just to make sure that everyone caught this -- but...we are giving away prizes for this week's HubMob!! Woot! Woot!
The prizes are the thing that we as Hubbers cherish the most -- traffic.
We're trying out a potential partnership with StumbleUpon, which is one of our favorite social bookmarking and traffic generating websites. Basically what we're going to do is pick 3 of the best HubMob Hubs from this week's theme and give them the following amount of StumbleAds -- StumbleUpon's sweet advertising platform.
If your Hub gets chosen as one of the best 3 HubMob Hubs, then you will have the chance to win one of the following levels of prizes:
-- 1st Place: $25 in free StumbleAds (500 Stumbles/Views) -- 2nd Place: $15 in free StumbleAds (300 Stumbles/Views) -- 3rd place: $5 in free StumbleAds (100 Stumbles/Views)
We will submit the winning Hubs to StumbleAds and they will get instant exposure to the StumbleUpon community, which could potentially turn your 100+ Stumbles into 20,000+ views (and some nice backlinks in the process).
We'll announce the winners when we post next week's HubMob topic.
I've just received an e-mail from Ryan over at HubPages HQ...
In a nutshell, don't use "Hubmob Weekly Topic" or similar phrases in the title of your hubmob hubs. Doing so HURTS your chances of getting ranked higher. Use words that are directly related to the content of your HubMob.
Here's the quote straight from the...
Anyway, Ryan said, "Adding these types of unnecessary words to the titles can really hurt their traffic potential." So, if this applies to you, just go in and do a quick edit on your Hub's title. It should help to improve your search engine rankings!
Ummm...thanks for that, ProCW -- even though I think that you just called me a horse. But, don't worry, I've been called WAY worse than that.
I just wanted to let everyone know that even though adding HubMob information to your Hub title is good for letting the HubPages community know about your HubMob Hub, it's probably not the best way to potentially get search traffic. Your Hub title is a big part of your Hub being search-friendly, so keeping it short, sweet and to the point is always the best option.
Does this make sense to everyone? I don't want to tell you all how to Hub, but I do want to help make each of you as successful as possible. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Also -- we're getting close to 30 HubMob Hubs! Way to go, HubMobsters.
Who's going to get that free StumbleUpon traffic?? Hmmm...
You certainly can, and please do! Add as many as you'd like, just make sure that you use the HubMob request link and then come back and post your link so we can all visit your hubs and I can put you into the HubMob hub.
Hi Thranax. If you didn't put the hub through the "answer this request", it won't show up in the feed. You can answer the request and copy the one you've written into a new hub. You'll have to pick a different url though. You'll want to delete the original hub unless you change it.
The graphic is on the first page of this thread, at the top where Princessa is announcing the topic and details. Copy the link location and then put it into your photo capsule and you should be good to go.
Hi, Thanks for participating The problem with joining the HubMob without answering the request is that your Hub does not appear on the RSS feed
The graphic is:
To add the graphic: 1) Go to your hub and click on EDIT 2) On the content capsule on the right click on PHOTO 3) Open the PHOTO capsule and chose ADD PHOTOS FROM THE WEB 4) Write the following URL: http://i43.tinypic.com/4vn23n.jpg 5) Load the image and save.
