Hi literal, I just reached 100 recently and wrote most of them in the last 6 months. Saying that I had only written three in the first three years here but that's another story. The more hubs you write the more addictive it gets. Just keep writing.
It depends on how long it takes you to write hubs among other factors. Even so, maybe you can make it a goal to publish 100 hubs by the end of the year. That's about 8 months from now. It will average about 10 hubs a month (which is insane). But divide it how you like, Good luck btw!!!!
It's only a suggestion. I was under the assumption you were in a rush to get to 100+ hubs, that's why I broke it down like that. I don't think its a practical approach either. Though it isn't impossible, it can be done, it will probably take like 50 hours to do it but heyy some people ain't got time for that!.
To me, 10 hubs a month is insane. I love to write, but I can't do it all the time. It's way easier for me to write in a notebook, then to type constantly on a computer. After you finish typing you have to think about what pictures to use, if the pictures are copyrighted, etc. Then you have to think about the layout, etc. Too much time and a hassle to do sometimes.
A hundred Hubs is a good goal to set. How quickly you get there depends how much time you have to write.
If you can write every day and you've already got the hang of writing Hubs, then you could try for a "30 Hubs in 30 days" challenge.
I've tried it 3 times but only succeeded the third time! What worked for me was:
I picked a topic for my 30 Hubs. I started with a Hub giving some introductory information on my topic, which would eventually become my index. Then as I wrote each new Hub, I added a link and a short blurb to my introductory Hub. As I wrote more Hubs, I started interlinking them (e.g "as I explained in my Hub on ....." or "I've written about this aspect in more detail here" or "if you'd like to know more about that, read this Hub").
I found that adding each link to the introductory Hub helped keep me going.
So, at the end of my challenge I had 29 Hubs plus an index Hub, making a total of 30. I also put them in a Group of their own.
If you take that approach, your Hubs can be shorter - 400 to 600 words is fine - because the interlinking compensates for the lack of length.
Just keep writing and the hubs will add up quickly! I started off here with a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge and blew that challenge out of the water! I used the traffic from those thirty to help direct my next hubs and just keep on writing! I love the creative freedom this site provides me with - its hard to find this type of platform with such a strong community as well.
On my main account (not this one I'm using to comment on this thread) it took me close to 2 years to reach 100 Hubs; to be a little more precise, about 23 months. That was after writing consistently, usually about 4 Hubs a month, but sometimes more. Some people take it quicker, some at a slower pace. On that particular account I'm talking about, I only wrote on subjects I'm mostly very deeply into and consequently would spend quite a bit of time on a single Hub. I feel pretty satisfied with completing 100 Hubs in just under 2 years; especially since I consider all of them good quality and sincere pieces.
100 hubs is a great goal. Just remember that the quality is more important than the quantity, so make sure that you focus on writing the best articles you can that people are searching for.
I wrote 100 hubs in 30 days and wound up deleting a whole bunch of them. It was still worth it, because I tried many different topics and ideas I may not have had the bravado to do if I would have thought them through.
If you want to build up your hubs faster, you should stick to topics you have an in-depth knowledge of. Review of books you read, recipes you made, or repairs you performed, stuff like that is easier to write because you don't have to do a lot of research; the info is already there in your head.
In general, if you want more traffic, you should choose more specific topics. I noticed your last three articles were overviews of extremely broad subjects -- cancer, stress, weightloss industry. Those aren't going to get many views because there are already hundreds of other more established websites dealing those subjects. With niche topics, while there are fewer people searching for the info, you also have way less competition.
I calculated that if my page views continue at their current rate, I'll get my first payout in 2016!!! I better go get back to happy hubbing. Also, received my first Zzz tonight, a sleepy poem. Ho hum. Forgive my...

Hey everyone,This might seem like a silly question, the answer to which is probably glaringly obvious to my more experienced fellow hubbers, but I'm truly at a loss here. I'd like to know how you come up with...
I log on every day, and it seems that I always find negative things popping up in the forums. I am sorry that so many people are struggling on HubPages. From SEO issues to having popular hubs unfeatured for a multitude...
