The 60 Day Challenge - The Return : : Increasing Online Traffic and Earnings

Updated on July 9, 2013

The 60 Day Challenge - The Return

I am back, after taking a rest, I feel invigorated this time and I am excited to write again. The last month was just tiring for me, finding a new place to move and some personal things to do. To those who are following and reading my hubs, you all know that I participated in a 60 day challenge -- The 60 Day Challenge Agenda -- Writing and Promoting Online which was spearheaded by Sunforged last April to May of 2010. It was a successful undertaking not only because my views/traffic increased by almost three hundred plus views (fluctuating at times) and it is still increasing by increments but the adsense clicks also increased. Furthermore the techniques I learned in promoting and backlinking hubs are just invaluable. It was a great undertaking working with a dedicated group of people.

This is the first 60 Day Challenge I joined in and some hublogs which you can check if you want to follow it up.

My Motivations and Objectives in Joining the 60 Day Challenge - The Return

This time around I am participating again in the second round of the challenge to increase my knowledge about getting traffic and increasing your earnings. It is always a challenge for me to learn new things and challenging myself. I learned a lot from the previous 60 day challenge and I intend to start from what I learned and to share to others as well.

  • Learning is an ever continuing process and it can be fun specially if you are determined to learn and achieve your goals. It becomes more fun and easier if you are with a group of equally challenged individuals who have nearly the same objective as yours.
  • I want to increase my viewership by two hundred (200) at least, then from then on it will continue to increase.
  • I want to increase my earnings, at the moment, I am receiving my monthly adsense already and while it is not as much as I want it to be -- I know I can increase it more by joining challenges and l can learn more by joining this challenge.
  • I want to push myself in searching for options and alternative ways to increase viewership and how will people stay to read my hubs and click on the adverts.
  • I want to write more well targeted keywords which will bring in traffic.

How will I Achieve my Objectives for the 60 Day Challenge - The Return

  • I will closely monitor the dashboard (installed them already) and participate fully plus actively in the group undertaking. I will also actively participate forum chat for the members of the group.
  • I will actively chip in whatever the group decided to do in terms of group effort
  • I will be writing about women's accessories plus child care -- infancy and toddler. I will be writing fifteen hubs about child care focusing on (infant and toddler care), 15 for women's accessories (style and fashion). I hope to maximize affiliate sales and google adsense while writing these topics.
  • Since I started learning more about keywords I am definitely trying to maximize the use of keywords and phrases hoping to learn to know what works and what will not work (and know the difference).
  • In addition to the above undertaking, I will closely analyze my google analytics which I just started doing.
  • This will be my log to the challenge and will serve as the page for writing the developments I am making. I will write the hubs here with the summary towards the end of the hubs.

      I love your motivation to share your knowledge. I'm sure you will do well! More power!

      These 30 day and 60 day challenges are tough...it's tough sometimes between time and other factors just to write a couple of hubs a week, let alone 7. So, anyone who can do this I certainly applaud.

      Incidentally, I HAVE been thinking about doing a few of what I like to call "anchor" hubs. Or, hubs that are not time specific (like political hubs can often times be). One of my best performing hubs to date (although "Show Me Yours, And I'll Show You Mine" has now taken the lead) is "Forget Ragu, Spaghetti Sauce From Scratch Is Easy." Other recipe hubs are doing well as well.

      In the meantime, I'll be looking forward to reading what you can churn out, and best of wishes to you Maita. :)

      I usually write over 60 hubs in 60 days, so taking the hub challenge should not be much of a challenge for me, but it might keep me from going that occasional day or so without writing at all. I know I need to keep my creative juices flowing, and I get somewhat down when I don't. Interesting hub. (:v

      Yo Maita! I love you Dear but I am negative. I see no money coming out of hubpages. It's like believing in God. Some do some don't. I certainly do not believe in money coming from hubpages. I can't put out anymore effrot. I have to write what I feel good about. I can't consider a time line which will help our "hub owners". They can't even talk that I know of. I hit all your buttons as usual. I'm glad this works for other folks. God bless!

      I am so excited Maita! I was feeling lost since I failed to complete the original challenge. I did quit smoking during that time so it was not a total loss! It is amazing to be so healthy this time around. I am looking forward to participating in the special forum this time, which was where I had my downfall last time. I missed out getting the mentoring that was available there.

      This is a great hub log and thanks for including links to the past challenge hubs, so I can catch up on what I missed!

I absolutely love writing and to get paid would be a huge bonus for me. Thank you sharing this information.
