How Many Hubs can you Write a Day?

    Writing hubs is not just writing any article, but you need to be precise in your information, so how many hubs can you write in a day?

      I could write 3 or 4 every day. None of them would be very successful.

      Every once in a while I have success with one I wrote in a day's time. But the ones that stay successful were usually done over the course of two days.

      Output is useless if it is low quality. These days if you aren't doing something of high quality, you may as well log off or find another hustle.

      There is plenty of crap on the internet, so who the hell thinks they can be a successful crap artist?  If you want to make crap, maybe you should go into internet porn or something. This website isn't going to be the place to make a dime with crap articles.

      So drop thinking how much crap you can publish in a day, and instead think about making the best webpage you can possibly make, regardless of how many days it takes to write it.

      It depends on the subject matter of course, but writing almost non-stop I could generally do about a quarter of a hub in a day. Only one of my 144 hubs to date has been completed from scratch in one day. In practice when I was working full time and writing in my spare time only, I could only manage one hub a month. But I quit work a month ago and now hope to be more productive.

      Why does it take so long? Checking facts against more than one source to make sure they're accurate, writing and rewriting the text to ensure it reads well, choosing photos and maybe manipulating them, cropping etc, organising the text to try to make the presentation of the hub as attractive as possible. Maybe coming back to it a day later to see how it looks and reads. Perhaps some writers are talented enough to write more than one article a day without preparation, or revision, but I feel I need time to write a worthwhile hub.

      Absolutely agree with Wesman Todd Shaw. It's hard to make money on this site. But it is not too difficult with effort and time to make quality. HubPages should not be a place for hastily written articles which a few other HubPage members just click on, and then forget. It should be a resource for good creative writing, helpful guides and informative reference articles. All should have quality. If everyone writes quality on HubPages, one can hope that eventually that gets recognised by a wider community. Then we'll all benefit.

      Even when I wrote regularly here at HP, I never wrote more than one Hub a day. At most, I wrote maybe 10 a month, but usually wrote about 2 to 4 Hubs a month.

      I Can write 3 hubs per day. Depending on the topic and information available. I will cross check every piece of information and will write in my own style.

      I would say it depends on how well you write and how much you have researched a topic. I research my topics and write outlines and then edit and submit. I would say that to stay informative and well written, one should stick with one or two per day.

    It takes me more than a day to write a hub too.  After I write it, I have to edit it, add media and images, etc.

    It depends.  Doing the full work on a hub, including research, taking photos, formulating an outline for how I'm going to write, finally writing it, assembling the Hub, with the images, additional capsules, etc.  That can take me anywhere from 2 days to a week.  I could crank out regurgitated crap in a day or two, but why bother?  I have done a few of my hubs in one day alone, but those required little research, as they were more personal, like the one about my sister's death, but that one does not perform all that well.  I keep it published mostly because it's important for me to share my story.

    For me it takes at least a day or two.  Images, for example, I have to get screencaps of the character actor I am writing about from my DVD collection which can be hard especially if you are trying to get an image from an early role in a movie where they had a bit part and you have to go through an entire movie in order to find the scene they were in.

    Finding quotes and sometimes enough information about the actor can also be hard and you have to go through a lot of articles on the internet to get information.

    So how long it takes depends on what you are writing about.  The most important thing to remember it has to be unique enough to pass the Quality Assessment.

    How many Hubs you can write in a day is exactly the attitude and approach that resulted in the site being full to the brim with low-quality content, and is why HubPages is now struggling to survive as it approaches the 10-year mark.

      We've seen this before with other similar sites. I notice, before my time here, there were contests to produce 30 articles in 30 days. I don't believe that can be done and produce quality at the same time. More is not better - better is better.

    Hubs in a day? 8.

    Blog posts in a day? 12.

    Those are my current records anyway. I find that my content improves in quality the longer I write, so once I'm "on a roll" so to speak, I have to ride out the wave!

    If I am focused it take 2 days to create a hub or article.  Research, finding images, getting my groove on all take their time.  Often what I intended to write about morphs into a different, more interesting topic. (depending on your point of view)
