... what is the optimal timing between hubs to publish them in order to get the best results in terms of page-views and real readers?
The Hub Challenge has gotten me to thinking about this. It seems clear to me that if I happened to have a backlog of ready-to-publish hubs, I wouldn't dump them on the market during a Hub Challenge, because they would get a lot less attention and a lot fewer comments than during a normal month.
But even if the Hub Challenge were not in effect, would I be sabotaging myself to publish too many hubs on the same day or even the same week?
I notice that when some of the more prolific hubbers that I am genuinely a fan of publish too frequently, I read less of their stuff. Is that just me, or do others feel the same way?
I think you are definitely correct, Aya, from what I have seen and experienced.
Your money isn't made from hubbers reading your stuff. It's made from the search engine traffic. So if your hubs are geared toward selling stuff, then I'd say just publish and do lots of backlinks.
But yes if they are less commercial and you have a lot of loyal readers and commenters then ease them out. Let the comments build up your hubscore and maybe get you on the first page of the "hot" hubs or "best" hubs.
Though I've noticed hubs as hold as 2 years on the "best" hubs page. So maybe it doesn't matter when you publish.
Yes, it's true that my hubs are non-commercial by and large, and this may be one reason that the strategy of spacing the hubs out works better for me.
However, I can't help but wonder how different the situation is in the case of serious internet marketers. I mean, the market for any given product is not unlimited. There are not going to more buyers just because you publish more hubs, right?
If the hubpages marketers speed up their hub production, they may capture more of the market, but that's only assuming their competitors on other sites don't do the same. If they all do this at the same time, won't they just get less for their effort?
I spit out hubs as fast as I can. Yes they are commercial. And it isn't uncommon for me to have a google adsense click the same day.
If there is a market to be dominated, the faster you find it, the better your grip on it.
You might be overthinking this just a bit. With hundreds of millions of webpages, whether you publish 1 or 100 can't really matter statistically.
Nelle, I guess that makes sense. It probably doesn't matter, considering the numbers.
I usually publish as soon as I completed the hub. And I complete them one or a few at a time.
When I've done Capstone series hubs I may work on two on the odd occasion three at the same time, cross-linking them as I write.
I'm trying something different this time. I'm working on all thirty at once. Some will be finished before others, but I'm going to wait until all 30 are done and then do it in one go. I like to experiment.

Yep, I'm going to be writing 100 Hubs in 30 days starting next Monday, May 11th. This might sound a little crazy (because it is), but I promise that I have a somewhat logical reason for doing it.So here's the story -- Yesterday I was surfing around the web, looking at some blogs that have been...

I've scrounged HubPages for this challenge as I posted one Sunday, one yesterday, and am working on what today. With only 20 hubs in the years I have been on here, I think it would be a great challenge. Is anyone currently undertaking this? Do you have any other advice?

Simple rules:1. Do NOT start writing hub until I (as in ME only) says, IN this thread, "GO"2. One Hub. You have 30 minutes to write it, from scratch. (you can have your word doc open in advance etc., obviously, just no writing). No cheating and using something you started before.3....

I have been writing for over 4 years at hubpages and in that time period there have been many changes. What I need to do and I'm sure many of you also need to do, is update old hubs that were written when I did not have a very good idea about how things work online. So now I will sit and update 4...

I haven't been actively writing on Hub Pages in a while and want to get back into this and this might get me motivated.I remember hearing about a 100 hub challenge some years ago and I know that I could not possibly write 100 hubs in a month. That is why I am attempting to do this in a...
