I've been seeing a LOT of hubbers writing very seasonal or one hit hubs lately. Mostly along the lines of upcoming movies, news events etc.
So just wondering what YOU write.
Evergreen, Evergreen Seasonal or One Hit Wonders?
And of those, which ones have you done the best with so far?
P.S. The majority of mine (95%) are evergreen. The other 5% I've been dabbling in seasonal/one hits.
Well mostly i write i should say kind of hubs which can be read in distant future in same way people will read it now.
Evergreen and deciduous (seasonal) - mostly the former: I want my work to be relevant even decades from now.
Actually, I think you'll find most Hubbers regard their Seasonal Hubs as Evergreen - because they will come around again next year, and the year after that, and the year after that. Sl although they have their peaks and troughs, they are still long-lived.
I've noticed that some people made money from one hit wonders such as the World Cup, but I wonder how successful it is? Hubs make small amounts of money over time, and I can't see how a topical subject would get traffic for long enough to pay off.
I do both and most my money comes from fad stuff right now. It brings some money in while I hunt down the evergreen niches I can tackle.
I wrote a hub on vuvuzelas - I wrote it during half time, so it took less than 20 minuets. I've made $45 ish on commission, but probably more than that because it has pushed me over % thresholds the last two months because of the large volume of sales. And weirdly it is still making sales.
I wouldn't persue fashionable hubs as a strategy but I am opportunistic so if I see a chance, and have a spare few minutes, I write a hub - for me that is the fun part, and the carefully researched hubs are the work part of HP.

HP has always said do evergreen hubs. Politics is certainly not evergreen. it has a short "shelf-life" if it is about a current event. And since I would mostly write about U.S. politics, they might have...

Can you remember what it was like when you first started to write Hubs?Before you read this rambly post - please know that I am not a newbie trying to suck you dry for information without doing any of the work myself....

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...

You can't. Just had to put that out there as I'm seeing newbies all over the forums going on about these topics lately.Serious money comes from getting views from Google NOT from having other hubbers visit your work....

Is hubpages in danger of being over-run by writers from India who can't write proper English? I went to a hubpages question yesterday, and half the answers were from Indian hubbers who didn't understand the question but...
