Now I have more time for writing hubs, not more than 70 hubs a week. I will be writing on topics that interest me. You may wander, will this be possible, ya, I will write more than 10 hubs a day because I got more time for that.
Both will give you important tips on improving your layout. Also note that some very successful Hubbers are saying your Hubs need to be at least 800 words, and possibly up to 1,500, to get the best Google ranking.
Several of your existing Hubs have poor layout and some are very short. Personally I think people like Relache have the model right - challenges are all very well, but you'll make more money with 20 excellent Hubs than with 70 half-baked ones.
Yeah, that is a ton of writing! I would say to make sure that you are writing quality. I am not sure if you have ever tried to write 70 pages a day (I have had to for work and it sucked!!) I am sure it will be easier writing on things that interest you...but fewer hubs of better quality are better than just a big number
Marisa, thanks for posting Lissie's blog. I found it very instructive, especially the intro about how she had to remove it from Hubpages because it violated the TOS. Is it really true? We're not supposed to tell fellow hubbers how to make money off Adsense in a hub?
Aya, apparently the Hub triggered some of Google's automated filters. The Adsense TOS says you're not allowed to encourage people to click on your ads. Lissie's Hub was about how to place your ads to encourage clicks - so it had some wording which mindless robots could interpret as breaching the TOS.
70 hubs a week, of 500 word length (which is pretty dang short and not really going to provide much real value to a reader), working 7 days a week with no breaks ever, will require you to write 5000 words per day every day, always.
The most prolific writers (in general and based on biographies and interviews etc.), meaning the ones who can stick to it for a career and not a short week, two-week, forty-five day (lol, good look even with that) burst, strive with great discipline to come up with 1850 words per day of reasonable quality, which then needs to be edited and made readable with lots and lots of careful revision.
To actually publish 70 per week, you'll have to do almost three times the work of the great writers and NO editing for quality. Sounds like a very brutal personal goal.
You might consider setting a more realistic goal so that you aren't discouraged right off the bat and forced to suffer discontent at "failure" that is stemming from an unreasonable goal in the first place.
I do about 3,500 to 5,000 words a day of marketing or sales copy 4 to 5 days a week. And I often had to write that much when I was a consultant for days on end. It's not the same as writing a novel. I don't know that the OPs background is, So I just wish him luck.
I don't think we should assume that people can't write a lot everyday. But it does take a great deal of discipline.
Nelle, I made my comment after looking at his Hubs. If he's going to write another 70 Hubs like the ones he already has, he's wasting a lot of potential. Quality over quantity! (and I don't necessarily mean literary quality).
Marisa, the same thing happened with one of my hubs, but I was hoping the problem would be resolved in my favor. It is discouraging that a veteran hubber like Lissie was not able to get that decision reversed. It does not bode well for the rest of us.
No I didn't try - I suspect it got pinged for promoting a "get rich quick scheme" which Google on one hand says is against their TOS but on the other hand is quite happy to accept advertisers for (that hub used to always have targetted ads on it LOL)
Lots of stuff online is not worth fighting over - and this was one of them (I took several other hubs down too which used Google's trademarked terms ) - I can of course still pubilsh it - I was just lucky that I had a site which was relevant to the topic and didn't run Adsense!
So, Lissie, what is your advice for me? My top traffic producing hub "The Secret to Making Money on Hubpages" had its ads pulled. Should I put it on my personal website? How do I go about monetizing it, if I can't use Adsense?
Just got finished looking around at quite a few hubs and I really cant believe some of the garbage.I know HubPages is an outlet but there is also obvious abuse.Now I know many people use their hubs for adsense earnings...
I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting...
Hello, my learned colleagues! I am new to this (posted a few hubs last night for the first time). I have been reading forums for several hours today, as well as a few interesting hubs (thank you, Mark Knowles), about...
