Before I even get started on this post, I feel like I should let everyone who is reading this know exactly how awesome it was to see all of us Hubbers come together for last week's HubMob, which was the first one that we have ever had here on HubPages. We had 30+ Hubbers publish a Hub that was based on the HubMob topic of hair and honestly it blew me away to see how many different and interesting Hubs were created and how different each individual one was.
Also, the fact that so many of the published Hubs have already been given a spot on the first page of Google is so freakin' cool and it shows that when you make really good and informative content, HubPages can get it out there on the web so it's found by Google, Yahoo!, etc. If you want any more information about last week's HubMob, head on over to this Forum topic and take a read: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/7609
Now, on to this week's HubMob topic which is Fitness, diets, staying in shape and losing weight: Tips for becoming a healthier person. I picked this topic because I feel that whether you work out, diet, eat a certain way, take vitamins or just sit on the couch - everyone seems to have an opinion when it comes to becoming a healthier person. It's also true that nearly everyone would like to become a healthier person somehow, someway, but not everyone knows exactly how to do that. This week's going to dig deep into this topic of becoming healthier and I encourage you all to put your own spin on it just like last week's topic.
For example, if you believe in taking vitamins, then write about that. If you are an active outdoors-type person and you think that's the key to staying healthy, then write about that. Also, if you think that staying healthy is simply not stressing yourself worrying about all of these diets, fitness routines, etc., then write about that - it's all up to you on how you want to translate this topic into a Hub.
To join this week's HubMob, please follow the steps below:
1. Come up with an amazing idea to write your Hub on that has something to do with the topic of 'Fitness, diets, staying in shape and losing weight: Tips for becoming a healthier person'. Make the topic your own and feel free to have fun with it, research it or wing it. It's up to you on how you write your HubMob Hub.
2. After you come up with your topic idea, click this link and answer the Request that I entered in for all of you HubMobsters. Feel free to use the tags that I suggested or add a few of your own.
3. Write a an awesomely comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea. Be sure to add an RSS Capsule that includes the RSS feed to the rest of this week's HubMob entries (Link: http://hubpages.com/request/6966/best?new&rss) and also add one of the HubMob images below to your Hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.
4. After you publish your HubMob Hub, reply in this Forum thread with a brief description of what topic idea you wrote about, why you chose it and a link to your newly published contribution to the HubMob. I mean, we all want to see, too!
5. Keep track of your Hub and keep us updated on any traffic that you're getting and post some screenshots if you end up HubMobbing a few search keyword over on Google.
Yep, that's about it - have fun writing your HubMob Hub this week and please let us all know if you have any questions. Have fun, you crazy HubMobsters.
Hi, I wrote a detailed Hub about why is it has become so difficult to lose weight and why simple weight loss methods are no longer effective for many people. I lay out the issues and outline a solution to correct the problem.
I wrote this to show how short term weight loss efforts may harm you in the long run and to defend a natural long term solution for weight loss.
I just want to say thank you for this hubmob thing. I'm a creative writer and, frankly, I come to hubpages for a break, if that makes sense. As joyous and awesome as it is to try to channel the muses, sometimes its nice to just have someone point your writer's mind at a target. No groping in the dark for subject matter, no wrestling with the maybes of this idea or that. Just, splat: write on this. I enjoy writing research stuff a ton, but, it's so hard to "assign" yourself a topic. This hubmob thing solves that beautifully. (I'm getting great search engine traffic off my last one, and it was so much fun to research and to write.)
Truly it's an absolute gift to have hard boundaries, despite how much room there is within them. This hubmob thing is an awesome idea and I truly believe it helps everyone involved: Google, Hubpages and us. Nice work, guys, seriously.
Awesome! I can't wait to see what you come up with...I'm a BIG believer in working out to stay in shape, so I think that I'm going to write a Hub on 'The Benefits Of Working Up A Good Sweat Everyday', or something like that. I'm kind of excited to research it actually.
This is very true. Some people eat right, exercise 24/7, but have heart attacks, while others eat all the junk food they please, smoke, drink to excess and have very minor complications. Those are usually exceptions to the rule, but I feel everything is in moderation. If you exercise by walking more and driving less I think that is a good start. If you forgo dessert a few days a week and opt for fruit instead, etc.
He he...I never work out just for the sake of working out. I do things I want to do, and fairly often, there is exercise involved. I don't throw on a pair of running shoes and hop on a treadmill just in the name of exercise, no. Chasing my daughter around isn't a workout in the traditional sense, and that was my point.
Sweet. Yea the HIV testing typically has a number of results too, so I guess that's pretty good. I think I need to change the title of the other one to be more searchable in terms of who really searches the phrase "lose calories sexually"? Hm..

I got to thinking, what do I know about keep fit? and the answer is, well, not a lot. So I've written about how mediaeval knights kept fit. I've had a passion for knights ever since I saw Heath Ledger in A Knight's Tale, and I've named my hub in homage to the film:
I say first one because I'm finding this is a good opportunity to get a kick up the arse and get some of these hubs that are pretty much written but not posted online. I have at least 3 on this topic area not posted, so time to pull my finger out and get them all online this week while the topic is hot!
That 132,000 is search results not 132k people. And it is a broad search at that. "zen profanity" which is a exact match has 3 search results. But it is #1. There is not really enough data right now to see how many people actually search for zen profanity.
No 1 and 2 for the whole title No 2 for the chilled out guide No 2 for the chilled out workout No 1 for the chilled out diet No 1 for chilled out fitness No 4 for chilled out health I stopped looking after that, thanks for chosing such a great topic this week Ryan the Hup Hupfer.....jimmy P.s doing pretty well on Yahoo too No 1 for whole title No4 for the chilled out guide No 1for the chilled out workout No 3 for the chilled out diet No 3 for chilled out fitness
And yet, ironically, when you google "hubmob" you find that HubPages is not the first result. That honor goes to a site that translates emails and text messages between Japanese, Chinese and Korean, quite possibly so people can hook up cross-culturally and lose weight sexually.
I answered the wrong request, because I read through the requests first and not the thread. Let me be an example of rawr, read topics first! But here's my hub for this week anyway - even if it is all on it's lonesome.
Here's my hub on internet addiction, and how to help yourself get out of this situation.
In the course of my research, I discovered that this is in fact considered (by some) to be a real problem, and not the "humourous" condition that I thought I'd pretty much invented! What's more, it seems as if the "addict" label actually fits me quite well...
First of all, I have officially made it to the Las Vegas airport to head back to good ol' HubPages HQ after a crazy week in Las Vegas. I haven't really gotten any sleep today, so I apologize for any bad grammar,...

This week's HubMob has taken more of a consumer, money-spending, self-indulgent shift, which is totally OK with me. You see, this week's HubMob Topic of Products, Products And More Products! Hub about a product that you...
