It took about 3 hours for each of my hubs... I wonder if im taking so much time because i am a novice. How about u people out there? Whats your average time to create and publish a hub?
It depends on what I am writing the hub about. If it is something that I have already written and just need to cut and past an add photos an hour. On some that need research and photos taken I spend an hour here and there on over a couple of weeks building it by adding capsules and info as I gather it.
Some like the one when it snowed I took the photos loaded them on the computer and had the hub on here in two hours.
I have to spell check and edit a lot so that takes extra time and then I sometimes I move the photos in the hub about until I am happy with the balance of them.
I think I take longer to make a hub now than I did when I started because I am more picky and self critical about the finished look of the hub. I'd guess minium an hour maxium 4.
So I guess I'm not normal... (that will make a change).
About an hour and a half to 2 hours but then im a complete novice when it comes to SEO so maybe when i know what im doing with that it may take another hour or so!!!
I'm sure that you must have spent ample time in Researching, Absolute No Knowledge in the respective field and Spend Time Figuring Out Facts.
Here are some tips:
- Research thoroughly (Qualitative & Quantitative measures) before hubbing
- Spend time understanding the Fundamental (Basis) before hubbing
- Do not rush through your Hub or else, republishing is inevitable
- Revisit the published Hub, doing necessary adjustments & amendments
Any queries can be written to me at flamboyantken hub page. Cheers!!
I have done some in 15 minutes. Just depends. I write fast, though, from my years of experience.
30 minutes if I'm writing a 'ranting' hub . 2 hours if I'm writing something else, complete with the pics, the videos, etc.
About 30 seconds to two mins.
I write all my poems before hand in microsoft word -
Then I just copy and paste.
I would say it depends on the research your doing or if you are able to rattle something off. I try to spend a couple hours on my hubs. Personally for me though I can take a few days to write one article. Not so sure if that's a bad thing or not.
Depends on how much passion there is behind it for me.
HI there, I am new to this...but so far I have takena round an hour for each of my longer hubs and about 30 minutes for my Top 10 Bar songs hub...but about 2 hours compiling music for it....
I think it really depends on how well formed your idea is for the hub. If you really know what you want to write then it will go by really fast...
Depends on the subject. Some may take an hour or so. But most of my hubs are written over a period of days, or nights in my case. Some subjects require quite a bit more research or hard to find photos. Sometimes I wait until I can take photos as I had rather use my own whenever possible.
How long it takes doesn't matter to me as long as I am happy with the results.
I've spent up to 10-12 hours on a few.
I do lots of research though, they're not coming off the top of my head
Haha, considering the length I've been here with only 14 hubs, and how I have to be inspired...awhile. :s
Depends on the topic I am writing about. something very passionate about 10-15 minutes. a hub that is going to be long and am passionate about...30-35 minutes. short ones again 10-15 minutes and that is all also based on my mood. some of them have taken me a few hours because they were a short story...acctually that one took a few days.
I think I'm with wyanjen - a couple of my hubs I think I spent close to 10 hours on.. But typically, I spend about 2-3 hours writing, 1 hour researching and gathering material, and another hour editing and revising what I wrote before I publish.
But then again, I'm a perfectionist.
It really depends on what I am writing about. I'm like Andrew....I write in Word, then copy and paste--only a few seconds for the text! lol Seriously, I've taken anywhere from 1 hour to 4 weeks to write, which includes backburner simmering time.
Yeah, I just did a hub 850 words, had to find a video, found two graphics and made a third... an hour to lay it all out...
There is just so much research that I do. Do you know that when I wanted to find out why kosher salt is called kosher, I researched the subject up to and including how to slaughter a cow kosher style.
Of course none of that made it into the final hub.
About 30 minutes. I'm always reading and researching stuff and I just write off the top of my head. I'm always tweaking to. I make sure I don't get paralyzed planning my hubs too much that I don't actually write it. I find that stuff just comes out as I write and it works a lot better for me than outlining and planning.
1 hour, to layout for content and then re-read and typo and all that.
It depends on the topic at hand.
I recently wrote one hub about a intimate friendship, which I was able to complete in 3 hours.
I have other hubs that took minutes to write because of short poems. I have some poems that are simply too long, to read in one sitting. I do recommend, if you happen to pass by my poem called Nameless. Keep passing. It is 10 pages on paper.
But, on average when I begin writing, I run along a train of thought, till it is disrupted by something else, just as important. Then, I'll stop writing and address the idea on hand, when done with that, I'll return to my other work.
But, as I said. It depends.
Two hours is about the minimum for me. I tend to need research for my hubs so it can take even longer. My goal is quality. If I am consistent I will get quantity. Some folks say they can punch out a hub in 10 minutes, but I doubt it would be worth reading.
it all depends on what i'm wriritng about. some times i can have two or three wrote in a few mins to a few hours. even my ten minute hubs i feel are worth reading. most of my hubs are wrote based upon actual events or feelings so there is no need for reasearch.
but my friend every write is different we all have our own styles of writing.
Hey all! It varies for me, depending on the hub, the content, the amount of pictures I'm using & research if I need it.
men, I guess am one of the slowest hubbers here but am trying to put my game up this year. ve just been busy on some other sites but I gotta give more time to HP this year but averagely, to put out a hub, minus pics and vidoes cost me less than 15 minutes. Its good though. This year am concentrating on getting more than 100 quality hubs for HP and wait to see the cash. Its all ood
Depends, yesterday I posted very personal Hub and that took a while, then this morning I done a review of my Sony Reader and that was quick, well about thirty minutes as I had to take a pic of it and up load it so all in all about thrity minutes.
cause i save my writings in ms word,then i copy and paste in hub page.
It always takes me hours to finish a single hub and it’s not finished at once. I usually save it as a draft and then go back to add more stuff before I finally publish it. To break down the total time I spent on a hub, that is, 50% of the time was spent on doing research for the content, 30% on finding suitable Amazon products, 10% on adding some images and 10% on creating some backlinks.
It seems that I need to learn new tactics to improve my writing speed. Does anyone have any good idea?
The time depends. If I like the hub then it takes much longer, as I am proud of it and just want to keep on improving it and adding more stuff. It gets dangerous when I am indifferent to it, as then nobody else seems to like the hub either!
On average.... 8 days of painful research, rough drafts and spell checking
My last one was about three hours but it was sort of a project.
Between research, writing and proofreading multiple times at least 2-3 hours. Then another 1-2 hours working on incoming links.
My last hub I worked on for several days over a two week period. Sadly it has hardly been read yet.
It depends on how much research it needs, sometimes hours sometimes weeks sometimes months
nodnods...I agree...it depends on the material. The actual writing process may only take a couple of hours, but the research behind it might take a bit.
My average is 15-45 minutes. I usually try and turn out 3-5 hubs on a good day now.
My hubs may take several days or a week to compile. Some are step by step repair projects which require appropriate photos illustrating a particular facet of the article. These photos are taken during different phases of the project so are not available until the project is completed.
By the way, these are my best money making hubs, both for Amazon sales and ad clicks. I have written a hub in 30 minutes as a contest between a couple of Other hubbers, but the quality suffered as could be expected. Different subjects, different degree of difficulty
I'm impressed by some of you whose scores are up there that only take less than an hour to put it together. I take a bit longer than that unless it is something that I know a lot about. Some hubs I will be collecting info for quite a while before I put it up.
I reckon I take about ten hours on average but I try to make the best page on the web for whatever the subject is. I don't succeed that often but it's the only way I can work.
It takes me around 40 mins to 1 hour to write my hubs. It used to take around 2 hours but now I know what i'm doing I think LOL!!!!!
I found my hubs on pregnancy really quick to write because they didn't need much research seeing its a field I know well, but they took longer to get ready to publish than they did to write, what with looking for suitable photos, videos and Amazon ads, then getting the page to look right.
Other hubs take me literally days because I have to research them first, and that take ages because you really have to look at a lot of different sites that cover the subject, to take from each of them what you consider to be the most important points. Otherwise you are only spinning someone else's article.
If I have no distractions, then an hour or so for a 1000 word Hub. But I have plenty of distractions like a constantly ringing mobile phone and other commitments. So these days, I take almost a week to write an article and publish it.
About 6 hours in general, but sometimes longer depending on the length of my article. Many of them are well over 1500+ word long.
It really depends on how much detail I want to go into and how I wish to organize everything. If I just blurt things in a more conversational tone then it generally goes more quickly if I'm not writing more than 1000 words. Generally it takes 45 minutes at a minimum or as much as three hours.
This depends on the topic I am writing on and the supportive reading & images I use. In my case, some finance related hubs need more reading it took more time. But sometimes it depends on whether you are enjoying writing or not. It is fun to assemble capsules to create a hubpage.
At first we find some difficulty for creating a good hub owing to the scarcity of ideas. but by experience our hub can be improved.
