60 Day Hubpage Challenge Progress Report

Updated on October 17, 2013

60 day challenge


As you all probable know about three weeks ago hubbers were issued with a challenge to engage in a group activity called the 60 day hub challenge.

Prolific Hubpages Hubber Sunforged issued a challenge to all comers to enter a 60 day Teamhubchallenge

The concept is to write at least thirty hub in sixty days and promote each others hub and therefore collectively increase traffic to each and every one of our sites.

Like I said in my first post here " I was drawn Like a sucker they saw me coming and I accepted" Here is another interesting post by a fellow 60 day challenger. Since that time i have posted at least thirty hubs which for once came quite easily. However there has been some difficulty logging into the '60 day forum' for which now thankfully it has just been resolved.


Hub challenge poll

Have you read the 60 day challenge hubs ?

See results

My previous daily traffic was around the 90 to 125 per day mark. That was pretty consistent from about August 2009 . So it is clear that since starting the Hub challenge and writing a least one new hub each day I have Had a three fold or 300% increase in traffic.

 
 
 
 
Visits Day 299 
Visits week 2253 
Visits month 6074 
Total : 57731
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

At the same time as writing my own posts I have also been reading and commenting on the other 60 day challenge hubs. I have used Twitter Face book Red-gage and Digg to promote both my Hubs and the other 60 day challenge hubs. I have started to look through various search engines. In future I will probably be more vigilant in doing an AdWords search before producing a hub. In the past i have just written anything willy-nilly with no concept of Keywords. I have also looked at a few YouTube sites which are well worth a look on making more money and increasing traffic on hub pages.

      What a bummer. You won't be able to join in the Challenge unless you can use the forum, so I recommend you persevere. I'm sure Sunforged would help you if you ask.

      Hi Barry, just a note to remind you that your Hub list (above) needs to be split into categories - remember you were supposed to choose a maximum of 6 broad subject categories for the Challenge, and then write all your Hubs within those categories.

      Then also go to the private forum and list your Hubs there, with one post for each category.
