I'm Making My Own Hubbing Contest

    I'm still working on the details but am interested in knowing if people would be willing to participate.

    I have already bought a domain name.

    Some of the details will be:

    A Hub of the week
    A Hub of the month
    Cash and article submission prizes with cash being paid out of my own pocket into the winners PayPal account.

    The winning Hubs and all participating hubs will be listed on the blog I am building through blogger.  So I will be building back links for myself and everyone else.

    I would be driving traffic to the site via articles.  I am quite good at picking good keywords for articles.  I have many articles that get between 50 and 60% click thru rate on Ezine and many of the have over 100 000 views with some approaching 500 000 views so you can imagine the traffic.

    So, as this is just in the preliminary stages with the right amount of feedback and interest I would have the blog up and running in a couple days.

    I am also looking for suggestions from anyone that is interested.

      Non capisco! You mean there will be just links to certain articles from hubpages?

      Im thinking it will be open to any and all hubs with the exception of obvious spam hubs.  My plan is to have Hubbers nominate what they think is a Hub worth mentioning.  Every Hub that is mentioned will get linked in the blog.  Hubbers will not be able to nominate their own hubs though.

      By keeping it open to any hub that allows anyone to be eligable.

    I would like a link to the site, I probably wouldnt write a hub, but would love to read anything anyone puts up!! you need readers too, right?

    You wouldnt have to build specific hybs.  Everyone would keep Hubbing like they are doing and Hubbers would nominate other Hubbers Hubs

      Ah, cool! All we do is nominate somebody else's hub or hubs, and then a link pointing to that particular hub will appear on your blog, right? Brilliant! Please let me participate too! smile

      To me it sounds like a lot of positive reaction so now I will get to work on the details and place them in a hub. 

      However let me stress this hub will have tentative details and will be open to suggestion.  Once I do that then I will make the final Hub and we can all get going on this.

      I also want to stress to any skeptics out there this is not to try and sell anything or anything like that.  It will be a way to drive traffic to my hubs and your hubs and thats all there is to it.

    The interest has me very excited.  With this much interest we will really be able to get a blog built and get its rankings quite high.

    We will be able to bring a lot more great hubbers to HubPages.  I am just getting through some private issues in the next 24 hours but the first hub is already half built so if all goes well we will most likely get officially started on August first.

    Im really excited with all the interest.

    Dale Mazurekposted 8 years ago

    Sorry for bumping this but I think for now its important to keep it hanging around.  At least until I get the hub finished for what I will be doing.

      Im not sure I will be able to send a notice in the email because would have to do it seperately for eac person.  Will likely be making all communications through Hubs and the forums
