The 60 day challenge thread, Whos in?

    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    30 hubs in 30 days is great...but how much time did you spend making sure your efforts will be viewed ?

    Are your 30 Hubs a craps shoot, a gamble ..are you just throwing *it* against the wall and seeing what sticks?

    Join us in a 60 day challenge that includes a 30 day promotion phase and a community support effort.

    Just looking for a dozen "yesses" to get started.

    Anybody in? Could really use a couple pros to help with the promo aspect. but, we will all be pros by the end big_smile

      Yes I need the promotion angle as well. Already signed on for 30 in 30. I am up for 60! Lead me Sunforged I am yours! smile When's that baby due? smile

        June 22nd ..partly why I decided to pull this idea out now.

        I have two months left before my availability crumbles.

        The first phase of the 60 day challenge, is the same as the 30 day challenge, for the most part.

        One important distinction is your selection process,  you will actually want to pre-plan your 30 hub topics ..a minimum of 6 broad topics max of 10.

        More and better info will follow once I have a minimum of a dozen participants. There is a hub (non-commercial) for intro info.

        1. Faybe Bay profile image83
          Faybe Bayposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          okay, I have a couple of topics already that I haven't had time to get started. Going to check out more info.

          Congrats two more months! This is so exciting. I love Babies! My granddaughter just turned two, but I remember from day one. Okay, enough about that (never enough about babies) The world would be a better place if all of the world leaders had to hug a baby every day. Just saying. smile
          Okay. Then I am off to bed, let me know when we have 12.

          Marisa Wrightposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          I think you mean minimum 6 topics, maximum 10?  Do you have to spread your Hubs evenly over those topics (i.e. 6 topics = 5 Hubs in each, 10 topics = 3 Hubs in each).

          1. sunforged profile image63
            sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            lol, yes! ...one of my contacts is super dry and Im having trouble looking at the screen.

            Good catch..and correct reasoning, for the purpose of building backlinks (some micro sites)  easily we want to have a few sets of related topics, just as you conjectured.

            So yes we want a minimum of 3 hubs per broad topic. But each topic doesnt have to have a set number above 3  .. one could have 6 another only 3.

        The 60 day challenge is closed to new participants, but watch for more 60DC's in future

        If you're up for a challenge right now, why not try the 30 day challenge instead? More info here: http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/the-hub-challenge/

    I like the idea and I would definitely help in the promotion department but unfortunately for me this is a busy time offline and I'm afraid it will be like this till the end of summer. I'd be lucky to get an hour or two a week on HP.  Bad timing for me but I wish you and anyone else that joins in this challenge all the luck.

    1. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      perhaps, we could incorporate your article site as one of the promo tasks..if you in turn could assist those who need help with the process?

      1. livewithrichard profile image83
        livewithrichardposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Sounds good to me, just let me know when you plan to start and we can place a small tidbit of instruction on your info hub. Maybe even some kind of rss widget I can place on the front page since it has the highest PR of any other page on my site. If you know of anything that would be suitable let me know.

        1. sunforged profile image63
          sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Will work for me:

          We will all be using the tag: 60dayChallenge and 60dc

          which means hubs will create the rss feed:

          http://hubpages.com/tag/60dc/hot/?rss

          and

          http://hubpages.com/tag/60dayChallenge/hot/?rss

          these feeds will be used in our hubs similar to hubmob, BUT during the promo phase i will show everyone how to use these rss feeds to promote their work at other sites.

          Will that work?

          1. sunforged profile image63
            sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            This feed please, but no need to change if you have used variants


            i know I have made an error here. in the thread I used 60daychallenge, but in the intro hub I used 60 day challenge, and peaking through some of the contributions I have seen other variations already.

            The simplest "60dc" will be our initial focus

            Dont be surprised if you get twitter traffic, I jumped through the contributions and shared all to twitter

            Thank you Richard!

  3. livewithrichard profile image83
    livewithrichardposted 6 years ago

    I think the tag feed would benefit all that are in the challenge. I'll look for a widget to place on my site that will allow me to use that rss feed.  HP has or had a widget, I wonder if I could use it. I'll look into it tomorrow. Off to bed.

  4. sunforged profile image63
    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    Alright!

    So we have LiveWithRichard willing to set up some special considerations for our 60Day Challengers.

    Thanks Richard!

    I know of at least one more high profile hubber with a successful article site.

    Anybody want to come out of the woodwork and offer some promotion on their external sites? I will be sure to see that the link love comes back to you during the promo phase.

    I am in and have already published my first hub before I read this thread.  So do I need to do the hub again.  And Sunforged thats a great idea.  Thanks you so much for the initiative.

    1. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I answered on the hub..if you want to start your initial 30 in 30...no ones stopping ya! Go Go!

      Just stick the rss capsule and tags in and your good to go (hubs with the tags and in the rss will receive special promotion during phase 2)

  10. sunforged profile image63
    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    AND TO KEEP WITHIN THE HUB FORUM RULES

    ..this thread will not be used for new hub links, the pre-existing 30day challenge thread is fine in that capacity already.

    Plus, we are going to be doing much more powerful stuff than a tiny forum link and we see our fellow participants new works in our private rss feeds and hublogs.

    1. soni2006 profile image45
      soni2006posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      So that means if we are inserting

      and

      http://hubpages.com/tag/60dayChallenge/hot/?rss

      we are in. sorry these are not working. I think I am not clear about this. sunforged can you help???

      1. Faybe Bay profile image83

          save link as or save target as

          Go to your new hub, edit,
          look to the side or above and add the "rss" capsule...click edit, now paste the link in.

          Save

          your done big_smile

        sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Sure, Soni...the rss links just take a little time to update, the first hub ever placed using that tag is less than 2 hours old...they will work by morning (well its 3am here..they will work in a few hours)

        place the tags  60daychallenge and 60dc on any new content for the challenge,,but only use the :

        http://hubpages.com/tag/60dc/hot/?rss

        on your hubs..we will be using the other rss feed in other places later.

        actually if you click that feed you will see one hub is included already...enlightened soul already has included a hub on redgage also..just takes abit for the system to catch up with us

      I cant nor do I want to stop anyone from participating, BUT, i plan on really helping to plan out our linking strategies and offer lots of personal assistance.

      i wont be able to handle much more than 20 (600 hubs) participants myself, but since we will all be helping each other maybe it wont be as big of a task as I imagine.

    skyfireposted 6 years ago

    Suggestion: Can we have separate thread in 30 day challenge forum for this ? SO that those who participate in it can post link there, that is one easy way to keep track of new hubs and promoting them becomes easy as well.

    Question: If someone posts 2 hubs a day then challenge will be completed in 15 days, so is that okay for this 60 day challenge ?

    1. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Skyfire:

      the main goal is to get ten unique traffic sources to each of your new 30 hubs within a 60 day timespan.

      If you complete the writing section early, than you just get started on the promo aspect.

      Ill ask in the morning if hubs will allow us to have a self promo thread...but it really is of no use to us. Im going to TRY and share with you far better ways to keep track and promote your links than inside a hubforum.

    1. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      You would be a welcome addition!

      The subject matter is strictly personal choice.

      We just need to be sure you have some groups of related topics for the promo phase. This is to help the individual participant plan out 30 hubs and to make the interlinking easier during phase 2.

      I didnt expect such a quick response, or I would have already tried to flesh out a FAQ...Im off to try...but most likely will have to publish around 7 hours from now.

      Its 4am and I have a  9am meeting tomorrow big_smile ...ill look over all the questions and write one thorough response.

      As of now, phase 1 is just do the 30 in 30 , include our new rss tag, keep a hub challenge journal and be sure that your 30 hubs can be divided into at least 6 but no more than 10 different themes

    Love this idea and will think about participating.

    It's going to be a somewhat busy month, but not crazy and I could really use an excuse to do the promo part of this challenge. I think I know what I need to do to bring my hubs to the next level in terms of traffic and income generation, but I hate doing it and would much rather write! So having some outside encouragement and motivation to backlink, etc. would definitely be helpful.

      im taking a look now Soni.

  29. sunforged profile image63
    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    Im back from an early morning appointment (at least for me) trying to pick out a pediatrician.

    So the dominant question seems to be when do we start?

    I put the feelers out to see interest less than 12 hours ago! but since its pretty much the beginning of the month and many are already starting the 30DC why not start now.

    I was waiting to see a dozen hubchallenge logs published, at that point I would create Hub that linked to each contributor (not different from the hubmobs capstone), I was hoping to engender a team mentality here. A cabal if you would big_smile

    The only thing distinct from just doing the 30DC is Im highly recommending pre-planning, doing keyword research FIRST, and creating your hubs in groups. I was planning on publishing my suggestion of how to proceed with that but it certainly isnt necessary to wait for it to begin.

    Im not reinventing the wheel here, the final goal is the same as the previous Flagship hub goal, the hubchallenge log is a variation on a capstone hub. The rss concept is the same as the hubmob (except we are going to do some major RSS promotion off site)

    As much as possible I will refer to other hub authors tutorials, much of what I will suggest is the same stuff you would read at the 30 day Challenge (not hubchallenge) the Keyword Academy, Pot Pie Girl, Grizzly etc. Im just catering it to the knowledge and level that our hubteam is at. I also will offer personal assistance via the forum thread, 60dc hubs and even personal email if needed.

    The concept of writing in groups was recently explained VERY WELL by paul edmondson, so if you havent read it yet, it should be your first stop.

    I added the rss feed on my hub, hope I did it right.  I've yet to see it show up on the feed, but I guess it takes a bit? 

    Should we also post our hubs here?

    1. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Soni and all:

      http://hubpages.com/tag/60dc/hot/?rss

      If you click on the rss link you should see a full page of included links, both your health hubs ARE included in the feed.

      The setting is for "hot" you can replace this with "latest" if you please also. In your hub rss capsule it has settings on how many links you show...just increase it to the max if you want to view it. I picked "hot" as that will fluctuate and everyone has an equal chance at being visible in the limited spaces available on a hub.

      But (and this is a big BUT) we will all promote this rss feed off hubs later which is the important part. If your hub is in the feed you will get benefits, dont sweat whether its visible on all the hubs, especially within the first day.

      and No, our little 60day challenge isnt hub certified or anything, and we dont have clearance to bomb the forums with our own links...the 30DC thread is the best forum place for that if you must.

      The BEST place at this time to post your newly published hubs is in your hubchallenge log.

      the topics are complete personal choice.

      Once we have the 12 initial people committed with a hubchallenge log, i will write and publish a hub that points out, how to write with commercial intent...so those who are interested in the "green" may want to hold off on specific urls and keywords and just select broad categories of interest.

      It can take a few hours to update on hubs end. If you wanted to keep tabs (http://hubpages.com/tag/60dc/latest) will show you the latest.

      this is not the rss feed we are using Google seems to quickly index the "hot" page, latest and best dont seem to get the same love. This was pointed out moments ago by peter Hoggan in the keywords and tag thread

      1. livewithrichard profile image83
        livewithrichardposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I've added the RSS reader to my site at 411article.com. Challengers should make sure they are using the tag "60dayChallenge" Right now the only hub showing is one by Skyfire but they will all show eventually.

        The full RSS feed that I am using is this one:

        http://hubpages.com/tag/60dayChallenge/hot/?rss

        If you want to use something else in its place let me know and I'll change it on my site.

  33. livewithrichard profile image83
    livewithrichardposted 6 years ago

    It looks as if most are already using this:

    http://hubpages.com/tag/60dc/latest

    So if that's the one you want to go with, I can easily change it on my RSS reader to read:

    http://hubpages.com/tag/60dc/latest?rss

    1. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      not necessary, Richard, we will use variations of the feed at many locations, the "hot' feed will be the initial focus.

      but yes, 60DC is the tag rather than 60daychallenge

    Okay, I just added a new RSS reader (magic rss) to 411article.com and it is selecting the ten latest hubs entered for this challenge using the 60dc tag.  This should benefit the active participants in the challenge right now.  When you reach the promotional part of this challenge Sunforged will show you all how to make the links permanent.

    I have just posted two hubs with the link and short summary in my hublog journal.  Sunforged can you please have a look and let me know If I am doing it correctly.  Also I have used tracker in my links, if thats ok.  Also, let me know if the summary will do or I should change it.  Thanks In advance!!

    Thanks again Richard!

    just in case its not clear, Richard has created a special feed reader on the FRONT page of his site (PR4) specifically for our 60DC links.

    As you publish using the "60DC" tag, your hubs will receive links on his page.

    @enlightenedsoul - Using the tracker is encouraged, its really not going to be much of an income generator on hubs proper, but its a good habit to get into for our extra hubs promo stage.

    Did you see mark Knowles recent thread where he showed how much traffic he received via his trackers!

    Tracking and statistics will be important too, the more detailed the better.

    In about 20 minutes, ill have another "capstone/hubmob roundup" style hub that shows all the challengers that have started teh first step and created their log.

    ill certainly take a personal look.

      Thank you Sunforged for helping out.  Infact, I got this habit to place tracker in my link when I saw Mark Knowles thread that he received a huge traffic from his trackers(Above 1 lac, I guess).

      I will make extra effort to be more detailed with statistics.

      I was about to sleep now(It's 1:40am in India now) but would read your capstone hub and then go to bed.

      And I am glad that you would look into it personally.  Thank You so much.

          You can take your time Sunforged If you want.  I am a die hard believer of the maxim "patience is always fruitful" so publish when  you are done.  Till then I will work on my other hub or study for tommorow's examination.

      Woooooo then welcome Mr Knowles! And thankyou for the extra help for the 60DC. I'd use my site but it's a PR of nothing lol!

      Right, I'm away to bother Amazon. Pity I can't bother Ebay too hmm

        Me too. Some of the ideas I have would be great for ebay. Maybe when I have a little more money under my belt I will make an ebay site so ebay will love me.

    Okay, sunforged, I have my hub log up and alive in response to the original question!

    This holiday weekend won't be too productive for me, but I eagerly await the release of the "official rules"  wink

    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    Wow!

    Response has been great overnight. With family activities for easter I will be out of contact for most of the day.

    I will add the half or dozen or so new hubchallenge logs to the 60 daychallenger hub and publish a hub on commercial intent.

    In the meantime:

    Commercial Intent:
    As an early eye opener to "commercial intent"

    http://adlab.microsoft.com/Online-Commercial-Intention/

    http://www.google.com/search?q=commerci … =firefox-a

    http://www.memwg.com/commercial-intent/


    One of the reasons we are writing in groups:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Reasons-to-Writ … ngle-Topic


    As for keyword research

    market samuarai offers a 30 day free trial so using this tool will work perfect for the first phase of the challenge

    http://www.marketsamurai.com/


    they are currently giving away a free tool "domain samurai" that looks promising

    Good Luck enjoy your weekend and holidays if your celebrating!


    Thank you Mark Knowles for adding the 60DC to your sites ...promotion is starting off with a bang and we havent even started the promotion phase yet!

    How many people do you have now, sunforged?  Happy Easter, by the way.

  48. sunforged profile image63
    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    "WE" have a team of 13 who have created the first step HubChallenge Log.

    Have you created yours yet?

    There are at least 6 more who have stated that they will be involved.

    Its a busy weekend for many so figure by Monday we will have a better understanding of our team.


    Ive gotten private emails from many who are interested in helping other hubbers even if they cant participate in the entire challenge.

    Thanks Im off to start my Happy easter now! Happy easter to you too!


    Using the tag "60dc-logs" in your logs would be greatly appreciated in helping me find them all

    Also using the feed http://hubpages.com/tag/60dc-logs/hot/?rss  JUST in your logs will be a cool way to be able to quickly see the others contestants progress

    Congrats WordScribe for the well deserved win!

      Been a busy day...  So, we're all supposed to write a log, huh?  This is to present our goals for the 60DC?  Correct?  I seem to have missed this initial step.  I just tag it with "60dc-logs", correct?

        Wordscribe (and anyone else who's wondering) follow the link at the beginning of the thread.  You need to start your log by answering Sunforged's question with your log Hub - then read his Hubs about the Challenge to get the whole story

    I'm in, and have my hub log and first hub published. \o/

    I've got a list of the other published hub logs on mine. So far I have sunforged, Marisa Wright, Sufidreamer, frogdropping, Susana S, enlightenedsoul, Eweirdo, SiddSingh, oderog, Faybe Bay, JeanMeriam, skyfire. Did I miss anyone?

      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Welcome ! I found 13 logs published in the 60dc feed. The 12 you listed plus yourself is all Ive seen.

      hopefully, many will add the "60dc-logs" tag and we will be able to find and add these logs easier.

        I am doing a short opening for my Hub about your challenge first and will then add my log. It's all an additional response to a question about how I build traffic. I don't know if I can keep up with the rest of you, but I'll give it my best shot and I hope my link-up helps the challenge. 

        Easter weekend seems a good time to try something new and likely effective smile Cheers!
