How To Publish 30 Hubs in 30 Hours
How-To Write Hubs Fast
The first thing you have to do in order to write and publish 30 Hubs in just 30 Hours is to write Hubs fast.
There are a lot of ways to go about it. An old business card from my days in the consulting world said, "Fast, Cheap, Good. Pick any two."

Fast is obvious. The whole point of this exercise is to get a bunch of Hubs published right away and then start reaping the rewards for having a critical mass of Hubs up and running and providing readers numerous ways to discover you and your other writings. So, that leaves either Cheap or Good as the one that gets left out. The answer may surprise you.
Earning Money Writing
To Publish Lots of Hubs Quickly Eliminate The Extras
As a professional freelance writer, the only person I write for for free is me. Even then, a lot of what I write I hope to sell someday, novels, articles, poetry, you name it. With the exception of journals and notebooks I keep for my own purposes, I would love to publish everything I write and earn enough money writing that I could buy a lake house in New England, because that is where it seems like all the big writers live. Steven King and Dan Brown to name a couple.
My point is, that perhaps unlike some Hubbers, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, princess. I expect to be well paid. I'm in it for the money. (Sorry, Star Wars quote bled through there.)
The reason I actually came to HubPages was to build backlinks to my various websites and webpages scattered around the Internet in order to build their authority, and PageRank, and money making potential. In just a few short weeks, I've come to see that there is some possibility to actually make money FROM HubPages and not just from the sites that get linked to.
However, doing that requires writing the right kind of Hubs, the kind of Hubs that target paying keywords and can be monetized into long-term or short-term streams of passive income. Getting the keyword research right and optimizing a blog post or a Hub for the right phrase is a time consuming process, not the kind of thing you want when trying to crank out Hubs fast.
That means, we'll be eliminating money, or "Cheap," from out list of three things. We will not eliminate "Good" for several reasons.
- I'm a professional freelance writer. I can't afford to have people reading "junk" that I published here and thinking that the paying writing gigs they have might get the same kind of quality.
- Quality always ends up lasting longer. Incoming links keep coming in, word of mouth keeps passing on, and Google's index keeps liking what it sees and ranking it higher.
- I can write good stuff almost as fast as I can write bad stuff, so why bother writing garbage?
Publish Hubs Faster By Delaying Work
There are plenty of things every Hubber should do when publishing Hubs. (Just got my next Hub topic :) This includes things like submitting a link to Twitter, or posting your latest Hub on Facebook or linking to it from your personal writing blog or other websites.
You should also include relevant pictures or graphics on every Hub you publish. I can't prove it, because I'm not privy to the actual algorithm, but the emperical evidence so far suggests that a photo or other graphic gives every Hub a higher HubScore than the same hub would have without a graphic. This seems to be doubly true if you are using a template that calls for an image and then don't use one.
Every Hub should also be proofread, and then edited. If you think they are the same thing, then you are not reaching your potential as a writer. If you care, check out my list of Hubs, I'm sure by the time I'm finished with this little project -- tomorrow - there will be some Hubs on how to write better. I would link to them but...
And, each Hub should be linked to either other useful or related Hubs (preferably your own) or to other relevant webpages or websites.
Unfortunately, this all takes time, and that is one thing you don't have if you are trying to publish a lot of good Hubs faster and quicker.
Write Fast, Publish Fast
If you can't touch-type, getting out 30 Hubs over the course of 30 Hours will be tougher than if you can, but it can probably still be done if you cut down on your usual workflow for publsihing Hubs and focus on getting the writing done.
