Setting a goal is always good. It gives you a zil to work relentlessly. But setting absurd goals fire back. It may cause to depression when we can not achieve it. I hope, we should set a realistic goal and thrive to achieve it as we do in the real life situations.
Although, lately I've been thinking of group topics, so to speak. One topic split into several hubs. It's been different because I'm used to putting all the info about a topic in one hub. I got the idea from my dog seizure hub that has been pretty good with traffic, so I figured a few dog cancer hubs split up but linked together would be interesting to see what traffic does. So I guess you could say that my goal is to do a few small series like this.
Whitney I know what you mean. But it's tortuous. I'm working on some capstone hubs, and a couple of series of my own which you'll see one of VERY soon but it's slow torture. There is NO easy way to make linking capsules. Think about it, if you do an overall index type hub, it can't go live until all the hubs are live. And they don't make sense without the index (capstone).
It's a catch 22 and with my new series hopefully out by Monday I'm just gonna have to launch like 12 hubs one after another within minutes and hope the fans don't complain about their inboxes being flooded!
My experience is that people don't follow the whole series: sometimes I will write a hub which get s a great readership from hubbers - this will often spawn hub2 and 3 depending on the questions asked - but rarely do I get anything like the readership on the follow ups - I do sometimes get new readers though ... As far as Google is concerned - which is where the real money is - it really doesnt matter when you publish
I'll keep an eye out for it to see what you mean - I have a couple of "capstone" (principal not official) series going at the moment -and I am just randomly publishing them and then go back and edit in the links as I need them.
Good grief, Shades! You ONLY aim for recognition, money, adulation immoral physical gratification, decepetion, world peace, understanding, comprehension AND good grammar. Good grief, I repeat, redundantly. Are you trying to be Miss California?
My goals are to let my goals find me. I only hope to be in the right place at the right time.
I hub to keep the writer in me alive. It will be nice if the positive thoughts reach a few needy readers and warm a few hearts. Well, I suppose we want more specific goals as well: 1. at least one hub every three days. 2. a published book by 31 Dec 2009.
I don't understand why you can release them as your publish them and release your index hub at the end of it all. I'm pretty sure that's how it's supposed to go...
I have an "index" hub so to speak for my dog hubs, but I've opted to stop updated it because it doesn't get much traffic, neitehr do any of my other "index" hubs linking all of my reptile related hubs, or whatever together. I just mean that I'm going to link the individual hubs together.
According to the HP team, series of interlinking the hubs actually fair well because google sees them interlinking and assumes they are knowledgeable, so to speak.
I could I guess but each as a standalone isn't what I want to achieve. I really want this to be a group, and the whole to hang together as a complete reference guide to the topic (Green Christmas). Every hub has a link back to the index hub. I'd have to edit every hub when the index is published.
Anyho I just did them all, so they're all done. It was actually quite fun and even a little exciting lining them all up in browser tabs and hitting publish, publish publish over and over eleven times!!! In fact I'd thoroughly recommend it for those of us who are easily pleased by small victories!
Hmm just interested to see what goals everyone has for 2013.. Mine are as follows.. Hit 1 million views by the end of February,150 hubs throughout 2013 (Already hit 100 in 2012),average 7,500 views a day by the end of...
Can be serious or humorous. I'll start.To come up with one permanently viral hub.To be graced by HP with a permanent profile score of 100.To find yet another permanent income stream.Clean up all medical problems.Clean...
I know this is going to be a big no, but honestly, I would be motivated to write more hubs and clean up old ones if I got paid 80% instead of 60%. Even 70% would motivate me more. Anyone else feel the same?
What are your goals for 2014? I have spent about an hour and half the other day thinking about what I would like to achieve in the New Year. I would like to read what your goals are. How will you accomplish them, and...
I've heard of some servers proving a little bit slow but this is ridiculous. Surely e-mails weren't even conceived of so far back as 1980?A few minutes ago, I received an e-mail from some company offering me breast...
One thing that motivates me on Hubpages is setting mini-goals for myself. The first one was pretty common, to get my first pay out. Then it was to get the payout monthly, to earn more each successive month, to obtain a...
