I am averaging around 6 hubs per week. Not too bad. I am not sure how that compares to the general average, but I would love to know.
Also, happy 4th of July to you all!
Wow - I write about one a month - I work long hours as a manager and have so little time. But I am picky too.
I learned a long time ago that mass producing hubs isn't a good idea for me. I think quality beats quantity - and I can't really do a really good hub every day, maybe one every three days - but that's ME that I'm talking about here.
I think that the really important thing to realize is that you are never to be done with a hub - you can ALWAYS improve the ones that you've already got. When you change one by improving it - it makes Google look at it as new content, and yet it also keeps it's original publication date - which also means that it's favourable aged content.
Google likes fresh and aged - but not stuff "in the middle"
Yeah, I've got a hub or two that I'm reluctant to jack with as I think that they are as close to good as I can get them - but I always find something to change or improve in hubs of mine that I haven't looked at in a month or so.
Also, we all simply HAVE to market our hubs - and I'm doing that with article submission sites. Right now I'm liking article blast - even though there's no potential adsense income from that one - it's a good place to drop a link and write a 300 word teaser to your hubs.
LOTS of other sites out there for doing that same thing on, and some of them give you adsense revenue as well.
you know .. that's a really good idea .. I;m going back through some of my hubs now to make more suitable for search engines and target keywords better
Another thing that I think is legit is to bold and italicize keywords in hubs - so long as it's consistent, and doesn't make the page look ugly.
I've got a hub that for the life of me I couldn't figure out why it out performs hubs that I thought were superior, and about more search engine favourable things. I finally decided that it had to be because of the bold and italicized keywords in it. As all other things seemed equal.
Yes, I thought about that - and I'm sure that that is true as well.
Instead of being vague, it's my hub about the Martin D 35S acoustic guitar that I'm talking about here. But see, I've done hubs about other low competition and probably more sought after guitars too.
It could be that the D 35S is just a lucky fluke thing that I lucked into.
I can't remember now, did you do a hub on the D28 as well?
HAHAHAHAHHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWO of them, Sir!
I could do at least one more as well - the HD 28 GE is nearly calling my name! Hey, I could also do one about pre war D 28's.
OH NOOEEEESSSSS I'm givin' away my gigs! hahahahah! :
Gee whiz...I've written 67 in three years. But then, you and I write about different things and have different reasons for being here.
Most of my Hubs take me days or even weeks to write. Mostly, they are based on research as well as personal experience. Plus, they often include my own photos, and if not, photos that required a detailed research effort to make sure that they are legal to use on HP, complete with requests to use copyrighted material, if necessary.
If I committed to writing 6 Hubs a week, I'd probably die of anxiety.
When I joined Hubpages in November 2010, I did the 30hubs in 30days challenge. It was around Christmas time so my hubs were mostly about Christmas. The challenge gave me the push to write everyday. After the challenge, I got lazy and just wrote a hub every two days or so. So, I also did the April Hub Challenge, which pushed my number to over a hundred.
After writing 120 hubs, I stopped writing. Why you might ask? Well, I started typing the reason but it sounded whiny, and I didn't want to upset the gods.
I admire people that take up challenges like that. I just don't think that that fits my style :=\
I work better when stress out. I'm kinda weird, or just lazy. lol
My secret is. . . . .beer. There, I said it - I write hubs while drinking! :=>
Pass one over here, will ya?
One beer - I get happy.
Two beers - I dance on the table.
Three beers - All inhibitions gone... I turn to a s3x goddess.
Please stop me at one.
Well - I got six extra for ya right here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I used to write a lot more on here, but as of lately have not published. Time to start writing soon again.
I did two of the 30 in 30's and now I'm good if I write a hub a week. But I have a full-time job, am a single mom, and my wedding business is taking off. So...I do have to sleep sometime!
Im new here! I've been here 4 days and already have written 2 Hubs! My plan is to more or less write 4 hubs a weeks! I have some free time this summer and I want to make the best of it!! This is FUN!!!
What a great idea Rosie, I think I will do the 30/30 challenge. I just wrote my first hub. This is a challenge I will enjoy.
I used to think writing 1000 hubs was "the answer".... but I've changed my mind.
I used to think doing the 30 hubs/30 days challenge was "the answer" .... but I've changed my mind.
Maybe 100-150 hubs is more than enough for anybody. Then just sit back and promote them. You can still add in 1-2 that you're passionate about, but if you have loads/hundreds/1000 and something significant changes and they'll mostly unpublished, or flagged, or something ... you end up with way too much work to fix them again
Need a 100 hubs in 500 days challenge.
I'm failry new on here so 100 hubs is my goal. I think that will give me some practice writing online and I'll learn a lot along the way. They can be making me money while I look at other places to expand my writing. I write about 4 hubs a week, so at that rate it will be quite awhile before I hit the 100 mark, but I'm also writing for other sites. I want to write quality hubs instead of just meeting a number goal
It really depends for me and the month. If I'm not busy, and I do write full-time, I can average 100+ a month. The topic I tend to write about has so much to cover, I could write about it forever.
I started off by doing the 30 in 30 challenge however now find that around half of what I wrote in that period if not really bringing in any views as really I rushed through a number of my early hubs.
I've settled in to writing maybe a couple a week but find i'm now producing these with what I consider to be a better quality and better longer term research.
I might go through a quiet period during my studies and up my hub writing a little but generally i've settled into writing a couple a week and poss a little extra at weekends.
However I'm using hubpages to refresh and develop my sports and fitness knowledge prior to moving on to my personal trainer qualifications as i've been out of the area for a while. Therefore I may be covering some subjects that are already covered on the net in depth so picking up google views may be difficult short term (maybe long term too)
I believe I could get well over the 150 hub range pretty straightforward if I wanted to however i'll go with the flow over time and see where it leads
I had a target of 100 hubs for last month but I only managed to get to 40. I work and also run an online business so I am a really busy person. I think atleast 1 hub a week is good enough as long as the hub is of good quality. If you are using hub page to earn money then you will need to take it quiet seriously and write a lot of hubs. I don't know if its true or not but I have heard on the internet that some one with only 30 hubs earns more than $1000 a month beacuse his hubs are of good quality and he gets huge traffics to his hubs everyday. Thanks.
Sometimes i can write 30 a week and sometimes nothing for mothns, it is tobad, because because all i want is to be a writer. I have bipolar 1 and it dictates when i write unfortunately. Alot of times i make money every month and many times not.
The most important thing is to write great hubs which people would gravitate towards and read. Quality supercedes quantity anytime. Furthermore write about what deeply interests you. That way you will enjoy writing. Good luck in your future endeavors.
I agree with Wesman Todd Shaw - I prefer quality over quantity. I just don't believe in churning out hub after hub if they will be just crap. But that's my personal standard. That's probably why I wouldn't do a 30 in 30. But I did participate in a 30 minute challenge with a few hubbers a week or so ago and that was fun. It actually got me motivated again to write a hub because I had been feeling discouraged.
I also like WTS's idea of reviewing hubs, refreshing them a bit and tweaking keywords. That's been on my 'to-do' list for a while.
I'm new here at Hub Pages, I'm on my 4th day and I've posted 10 hubs. However, my husband told me last night that I should go easy in case they might think I'm spamming the site. So I've put on hold for now posting some of the other stuff I have. Is my husband correct? Maybe he just wants to hog the desktop.
I do notice from the comments here that some of you post at least once a day, and others much more than that. So I guess my husband must be mistaken. I love to write and express myself, my thoughts and ideas through writing and I've recently found time to do that so I'm on a roll at the moment.
This has been an insightful forum topic for a newbie to Hub Pages like me, thank you.

I know this can range wildly, but what would you say is a good average number of views per hub per week?

So I just completed my newest hub (even though its my 9th one, I still feel proud about it and now I was wondering how to promote the hub. My hubs seem to be dying, with some only getting several views daily, and I...

I wrote a hub on swimming pools that's around 1000 words. And a lot of my videogame hubs are above 500 words. Since my return on HubPages, I've wanted to know something. Are 500-600 word hubs enough or are they now...

I'm sorry if this post offends anybody, but I am really getting tired of people who basically are non English speakers showing up, throwing a hub together without expending any effort to read the forums or the learning...
