The most Hubs I have published in one day was three. I wrote the content and set up the capsules all in one day, but I spent most of the day doing it. I think quality is certainly more important than quantity in the long run. Though I think it is possible to turn out several high quality articles in one day, and the traffic spike after publishing several in a short time is inspiring.
