I suppose with the latest Google Panda update and all the low traffic we've been getting, I guess it's time to start writing more hubs. While I wasn't affected too badly by the update, I still want to increase my traffic and hit payout next month or the month after.
I want to hit 80 hubs by the end of this month, however that doesn't mean I won't write quality hubs! I feel like the quality of my hubs are going down a little, so I am going to renew that quality by writing stellar hubs.
So, I thought, why not have a group HubChallenge? There are so many benefits of joining, and if you join, we can share tips, give support and increase our traffic. Please come and join, writing more hubs is a great way to defeat Panda!
You can alter the challenge if you want, whatever suits you is perfect. Plus at the end, I'll say whether or not this challenge boosted my traffic.
Here are my targets for the next 60 days;
Write 30 Stellar, Evergreen hubs. Plus, 10 product hubs, for boosting my Amazon sales.
What are yours? If you want to join, just say so below, start writing and post your links.
Hi Michele, Thanks for the reply. You sure can join if you want, it is up to you. Tell me here if you want to join and start writing hubs and post their links here. Looking forward to your hubs, if you join!
I love it, although it being September, think I am a little late in joining the challenge. My personal goals are a little lower than your suggestion, but I can't wait to work out my writing muscles. My goal is to write 8 quality hubs by the end of September and 8 product review hubs. I just finished my first hub of the challenge, Canning Recipes: Spaghetti Sauce. As a stay at home mom and homeschooler with a toddler and preschooler at home, and my crochet pattern business on Etsy, my writing time tends to be a little limited, especially with canning season upon us. Good luck all. I can't wait to see how this challenge affects our traffic and income!
I really and feeling a big boost of energy already from doing this challenge and am feeling really motivated to keep writing. I also have found that each hub gets a little bit easier to write. My first hub took several hours to write, but this last one only took an hour or so.
I join, 30 stellar hubs in 60 days, I don't have adsense account yet, just wrote 13 yet, joined 4 weeks ago, I want to keep the production. I don't know about product hubs yet, gonna to do some research. Let's go!
Thanks for joining, Eco-Logic! I'm looking forward to doing the challenge with you. You have some great hubs about the environment, I am sure that will get good search traffic in the future.
I have to publish my third hub today so I should have it done later on today. Looking forward to your first stellar hub! If you don't want to do stellar hubs, you can do normal hubs, but you will get more traffic if you do stellar hubs.
Oh, in case you are wondering, a product hub is a hub that reviews products and puts an Amazon link to them so people can purchase them. Product hubs will boost your Amazon sales a lot. You can make a review about one item or you can make reviews about a series of items. If you want to stay in your niche of 'eco-friendly', you could write a hub about the best eco-friendly televisions or something like that.
After three busy days, I have finally published my third hub! I am falling behind a little, this challenge is getting very hard! I should have my next hub published in the next two days. I am up to a total of 47 hubs right now. Another 27 stellar hubs to go!
Right now, I and Eco-Logic are doing the challenge. Anyone else? I can say that my traffic and earnings have increased by since I started the challenge.
Hi Eco-Logic! Thanks for posting your link, it is a great hub! It was a very interesting hub and has easy to follow instructions. I'm am becoming more eco friendly each time I read one of your hubs! Here are the guidelines for a stellar hub; More than 1150 words (which I think you have, check in the HubTool) More than 3 images (which you have) A Table (which you have) A Poll (which you don't have) That is it! All you need to add is a poll and you have a stellar hub! Well done for the hubs so far, you are doing great, looking forward to your next hub! Mine should be ready tonight.
I appreciate your response susi10! Will make poll later and turn my hub into a stellar one! I just made the part 2 of the DIY wind turbine subject, it's waiting for approval! A hub does not need to have a video in order to be stellar?
Yes, a hub does need a video to be stellar, I didn't see that only until you mentioned it. I will put some videos later on to make them stellar. You can post the links of your new hubs here, if you want.
Hey guys! I too, joined Hubpages just 5 weeks ago. I've published 14 hubs so far and my goal is 30 hubs by the end of the summer. I publish about 3 hubs a week, but it's summertime and some weeks I get lazy. Plus being a stay at home mom to my 1 year old and my 3 year old leaves me with very limited writing time!
Well, I don't really have that much time lately to write a hub a day or every second day but this thread is still running. In fact, I will post here once every week. Sorry I dropped out earlier, well done though Michele, you have over 80 hubs!
I am working on a goal, which I have not met. I find it very challenging, because I get distracted reading the hubs of others and learning. I would like to: - Publish 2-3 per week - Tweak 1 per week - Write one hub per week for my Capstone project - Do Daily Hubivity (3 questions, 3 answers, 3 forum posts, 3 comments, update Facebook & Twitter) I was doing some of this, but then I got the flu. This is my ultimate goal though - if I could do this each week for a year. Any thoughts?
Hi Michele, Your plan seems very challenging but I am sure you will complete it. I think its a great plan and it will really get your traffic up. Best o luck with it! I'll be posting here too, I've got a few more ideas for hubs to publish.
On a different account, somewhat "experimental" account, one of my Hubs is unfeatured. Generally my inclination was to unpublish it and move it or just delete it. But I kept it and put it in a Hub group....

I think I know something about writing articles. I created a new hub yesterday. HubPages took 24 hours before declaring, in one of their mystery messages, that it was of sufficient quality. You know what? It was too...

Yep, I'm going to be writing 100 Hubs in 30 days starting next Monday, May 11th. This might sound a little crazy (because it is), but I promise that I have a somewhat logical reason for doing it.So here's the story --...
