How many people actually completed the hubpage challenge?

    Silver Roseposted 9 years ago

    I'll start off and admit that I didn't - I was on the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge and only made 17 hubs, which is pathetic I know.

    Those who completed - very well done. Do you want to give the rest of us any tips on how exactly you did it? eg how did you come up with ideas for 100 hubs? (getting ideas was the bit I found hardest). And did you make any money from the challenge?

    I'll finish with links to two guys who did complete the Hub challenge:

    Courtney Tuttle, who managed to make 100 plus a nice profit

    <no links please>

    and

    BenK who managed to make 240 and a nice profit!

    <no links please>

    Moderators - I know we're not meant to post links on the forums, but can you allow these two as I feel they genuinely have information the rest of us can learn from.

      I created a whole series including videos and stats.  Check it out "Diary of a Mad Hubber"  do a search, I don't know if I can link to it on this thread.

      I came in when the challenge had already started and I've been getting comfortable with the site. I think I'm going to make the 100 hubs in 30 days a personal goal.

    I wasn't participating in the challenge, but I made 46 hubs in a month lololol.

    I finished the challenge. I did the 100 hubs in 30 days. I didn't really have much of a problem coming up with hub ideas, they just seemed to be there. I did make about $30. Not as much as the others but a good enough sum for me.

    I finished the 30 hubs in 30 days. I finished actually I think 3 days before the deadline. I have not seen anything extra in my google adsense though.

      I also finished 30 hubs in 30 days (early I might add) and am so glad I did the challenge, as it got me off to a good start. I had just joined hubpages and the challenge was a real impetus to start writing on a regular basis and working with genres and topics I hadn't tried before

    silverrose - I don't think the mods will mind as those aren't self-promotional links and they have genuine information - unfortunately I think what you will find is that most people want to talk about making money online not actually do it!

      I agree. But I think many it is not intrested in the money. It is talk the talk, not walk the walk, New saying had to use it. Hiow are you Lissie. Not many I think like you make income from Internet TOO HARD!

    I did 30 in just under 30 but as I don't have adsense, doesn't affect my zero income anyway.

    Congrats to all who completed the challenge. I knew it was impossible for me because I don't have time to even do one these days. I have been in a slump and my motivation is not what it was. I'll be back soon.

    I completed 30 in 31 days!

    I did it in 2 steps:  8 in the first week, a nice long holiday, and completed 22 in the last week for the 30 for 30.  The holiday really gave me a burst of creativity and energy....smile

    Did 30 in 26 days.

    I finished #30 on the 30th day. Haven't checked adsense - it was enough just to complete the hubs.

    well done to everyone who completed are even started the challenge, I could not have done it

  13. RedElf profile image90

    Silver Rose, you did well to complete 17.

    I agree - everyone who took part deserves congratulations.

    We all have lives outside the Hub (I hope)...

    When I started the challenge, I didn't realize the sole purpose was to increase traffic to make money (silly me), I just thought it looked like a great way to challenge my writing - could I crunch out a bunch of quality articles quickly...

    I managed 19 with some time off for family funerals, sorting and packing up part of a household, looking for new job, and traveling to visit friends and family (that took a bite out of the month, I must say, lol). Not whining or complaining - just what was on the plate last month.

    So good on you to whoever took part...and if you completed - WELL DONE!

    Congratulations to everyone who entered and got even some of their hubs done. And a special congratulations to those hubbers who completed the challenge.
    My hat's off to you! MM

    Congrates to everyone ,who completed the challenge ,I  cannt done ,I dropped from challenge after few hubs

    My hat is off to all of you who "completed" the challenge and to those of you that tried. I did not do it because I knew that I could not possibly pull off such a feat at this time.
    And remember, for those that were expecting a google adense spike and didn't get it, you will notice as time accumulates that those hubs you wrote will be pulling in clicks and revenue so you have set yourself up for future income...

    Oh no, the moderators removed the links! Oh well. I guess people can Google for the relevant articles.
