HubMob Weekly topic: Spring

  1. Princessa profile image83
    Princessaposted 8 years ago

    Spring has sprung, the grass has ris',
    I wonder what this week's  HubMob topic is?


    http://i42.tinypic.com/fjnb4n.jpg

    Yes, The HubMob topic for this week is Spring!!! and Spring is coming full of surprises for all the HubMobbers who join in this week's HubMob.

    I've just received word from HubPages HQ and StumbleUpon is sponsoring us this week, so get those fingers typing fast and lets have fun writing about Spring, because this week we are having a prize for the 3 best HubMobs.  StumbleUpon is offering free stumble ads to the top 3 Spring HubMobs.

    For those of you who are new to the HubMob, you can Check out this page on StumbleUpon for more info on StumbleAds and how they work to improve your traffic.

    Here is how The HubMob will work this week:

    1.    You submit your Spring HubMob following all the steps detailed below, like in previous weeks.

    2.    At the end of the week when we're getting ready to post another HubMob topic, ProCW,Ryan Hupfer, and me will take a look at each of the HubMob Hubs that have been submitted and will collectively choose the 3 that we think are the best of the best for the week

    3.    Next Monday, the 3 top HubMob Hubs that are chosen will be posted as the winners along with the new HubMob topic of the week

    4.    There will be 3 different prizes given out:
        - 1st Place: $25 in free StumbleAds (500 Stumbles/Views)
        - 2nd Place: $15 in free StumbleAds (300 Stumbles/Views)
        - 3rd place: $5 in free StumbleAds (100 Stumbles/Views)

    5.    The 3 winning HubMob Hubs will be submitted by HubPages to StumbleUpon and will receive the amount of free Stumbles/Views associated with the place that they were voted.  Hopefully the minimum Stumbles/Views will turn into many, many more giving your Hubs even more traffic to help get it kick-started out there on the web.

    Some ideas for a Spring HubMob are:
    - Spring holiday break ideas
    - Gardening in spring: things to do, vegetable gardening, spring flowers and wildlife;
    - Spring fashion trends
    - Spring decorations, projects and ideas for all around the house;
    - Spring seasonal foods and recipes
    - Spring festivals: the Spring Equinox, Earth day, April fools, May Day, Beltane, Easter, Bihu, Rangoli, Spring festivals and celebrations in your area.
    - Spring poems
    - Spring clean your home, office and computer
    - New releases for spring 2009: films, music, theatre.
    - Spring related products.

    To join this week's HubMob
    please follow the steps below:


    1. Come up with an amazing idea to write your Spring HubMob

    2. After you come up with your topic idea, click this link and answer the Request that I entered in for all of you HubMobsters.

    3. Choose a relevant title for your HubMob and feel free to use the tags that I suggested and add your own tags.  To get a good ranking in the search engines make your title relevant to your hub content and avoid starting your title with "Weekly HubMob"

    4. Choose a relevant category for your HubMob

    5. Write an awesomely comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea.

    4. Include the  HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/request/10880/best?new/&rss

    5. Add the HubMob image specially made by ProCW for the occasion to your Hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.

    6. After you publish your HubMob Hub, come back to the forum and post a link to your hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.  Take advantage of the free publicity!

    7. Keep track of your Hub and keep us updated on any traffic that you're getting and post some screenshots if you end up HubMobbing a few search keywords over on Google.

    Yep, that's about it - have fun writing your HubMob Hub this week and please let us all know if you have any questions. Have fun, you crazy HubMobsters. smile

      Well all fine and Dandy for the Northern Hemisphere, well over here in the South It is heading on for Autumn and the cool chill in the air is already begining to manifest itself, we as well as the Oz, that includes those other Contingents below the equator, seem lately to be left out, victimised and ostricised in the hubmob topics. Sure we can write about the past or our dreams of what we plan to do in Spring or rehash the Easter Bunnie bit, but that we looked at before.
      Please allow us in the dark forgotten South a bit of the current hub mob fun.
      Still have no idea what hub to do, we do not even have a Spring Break tradition over here!
      Seems as if Mankinds Birth Place and The Cradle of Civilazation has become the orphan Continent, Dont know how the Ozzies and Kiwis handle the rejection.

        Oh Dear!!! what can I say? http://i3.tinypic.com/870r75z.jpg

        Thanks for bringing the issue into attention.  We are always trying to look for traffic friendly topics for the HubMob which not always match every hubber’s situation, location or knowledge.  I'll try to keep your point in mind for the future smile

        Please do feel free to suggest any future topics.  I am always open to suggestions.

        Thanks, Princessa and Patty!!!  The only thing I don't like about my job, is that it takes away from my time on here!  I have an unpublished hub that I have been working on for about 4 days now, and I still haven't had time to finish it!  I have an idea for the HubMob this week, just not sure if I will have time for it!

          I feel you there AMB, my 2 jobs usually wind up killing any and all time I would otherwise use to write, but I'm working on this weeks hubmob...actually one job is helping...I work in a clothing store, and I just dressed 9 manniqueins today, so I decided to write on spring fashion trends and I'll be taking pictures of the manniquiens I dressed for my hub!

    Please remember to follow all of Princessa's instructions when taking part in the HubMob... this includes changing the name of your hub to make it search engine friendly -- don't use "HubMob Weekly Topic" or related terms in your url and/or title... when you're answering her request, change the url & title.

    Thanks to you all! smile

      Kind of strange, I've only had 5 visitors today.  Most of my hubmobs perform rather well, so that is a bit odd.  IDK.
      Anybody have the count on how many hubmobs have been written so far?  Seems quite a lot already, maybe that's the reason for the lower traffic?

        Hi, there are 28 Spring HubMobs published and an average of 235+ views a day.

        Traffic can be seasonal and just now the main traffic is going to the Saint Patrick HubMobs. We have 36 Saint Patrick's hubmobs which are gathering 640+ views a day, that is awesome!
