It varies but as I write about familer topics the time comes into play in checking facts adding helpful links and images. Granted I am not a pro writer and not figuring on making a profit
I can write a personal hub with no research in less than an hour (maybe up to a day). Recently I did a hub that required mostly research and it took me about a week, working on it about an hour a day, tweaking it and what not, adding pictures, checking for accuracy and it still felt rushed. I'm not a professional though either, and I'm very slow and particular about writing.
Usually a day or two for research and then a few hours to actually write the article.
I find that it varies. If I am hunting research and pictures it can take me a couple of days to complete a hub. Hubs that contain my own writings only take an hour or so with finishing touches, pictures from my own collection, etc.
It varies for me too. Sometimes a few hours. sometimes several days of working on it for an hour or two or three at a time. I'm really good at starting them but not so good at finishing them! I've got 6 that I've started but they've been sitting there for weeks!
How long is a piece of string?
Every Hub is individual and the time they take to write is irrelevant.
Make it well prepared and well presented will get you sometimes, it depends on your ability to do it.
It can take me anywhere from a few hours to a few days depending on the topic and the amount of research I need to do.
If the hub is about my personal experience then an hour or so. Else it usually takes a little bit of research time. At the max 2 weeks or so.
When I have an idea, I immediately write a hub. And then I research for the potential keywords, I include my main potential keyword in my tittle, and in the first and second paragraph. I also share it in the social networks sites using google toolbar plugin, it is easy to be done. It just need 2 - 4 hours.
Mostly 2-3 hours is sufficient to write hub content and to upload images and arrange all content in pages. But to collect all information about that topic, it takes 2 to 4 days to me.
If the topic is well known to me then it will be published in just 2-3 hours.
On most of my songs, it takes about 30 minutes. The journal, Which Way Is Left In Canada each hub has taken several hours. I wrote it while Bean was driving and its pretty hard read..lol.

How long do you take on average to write a hub. I mean the whole process, research, writing etc. What would you say is the average for you?

How long do you take on average to write a hub?From the point where you begin picking a topic until you click publish, how long do you spend on a hub?

Hey. I was wondering how long it takes you to write a hub. Perhaps an average time overall or for various types of hubs. I read somewhere of a guy who wrote 10 hubs a day for 10 days! In my dreams. I take well over two hours per hub. Probably more if I added it all up. Thanks,Juliet

I was just wondering how long a hub takes you to write from concept to published? I am using hubpages as the start of my freelance writing career and I am working being more productive. I am also only doing my second hub now. I have an editor now so that will add time to the process still...

How long does it take you to write a hub?I am a new-ish Hubber. I take about 3-4 hours to write a hub - from idea formulation, research, writing, editing - from start to finish. Is that too long? Not long enough?

When looking for information on a hub topic it is good to make sure that the information is accurate and that you have done your homework because there is nothing worse than reading an article that has false information. This takes the reader away from your site as they feel that it is fictitious...
