        wow, you have over 4500 hundred posts, thats seriously impressive, over 12 posts a day ever day, for a year. If you dont mind me asking do you do well with adsense and hubpages?

          Yes I believe that for well targeted commercial hubs adsense income is good and increasing. Hubs written to entertain other hubbers or yourself earn less, but it all adds up! smile

      It's actually Saturday night here. I'm trying to write one, unfortunately, I have an online job to finish.

      And yes, I do read the hubs of the people who post in the forums. Especially from hubbers that I am not a fan yet and those who are just new in hubpages. smile

      I did actually work on a hub on Friday night and publish it in the wee hours of Sat morning, but that is my prime time.  Since I retired (from the Air Force) in Dec, I usually stay up until at least 0200.  Evening and night has always been my favorite time of day. 

      I often check out the bio &/or hubs of hubbers that draw my attention in the forums.  Definitely have gone to hubs specifically recommended by other hubbers in response to specific forum questions.

    I just enjoy reading hubs. I spend more time readin hubs and forums than writing hubs.

      you have a good hubscore for someone thats written less than 10 hubs, i hope you got the chance to look at some of mine.

    I'm working my way through. I learned how to bookmark. I am happy now.

    As for the high score? Danged if I know why it's like that.

      vancouverposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      keep at it, ive read/learned that having 10+ hubs helps to increase your hubscore. Quality content that people want to read always helps,

    I finished and published my last hub around 1 a.m. (Saturday) local time. I guess that still counts as being Friday night.

    Concerning your other question: I am reading quite a few hubs of other hubbers. I am finding these hubs mainly in following ways:

    *) Clicking on the profiles of hubbers in forum posts (I like to hang around in the forum though I do not write that often). I do have some favorite hubbers whom I am reading quite regularily but I do often click on profiles of hubbers I did not know before just out of curiosity.

    *) Clicking on the hub "alerts" sent to me via hubpages (these are the hubs of the hubbers whom I am a fan of).

    *) Browsing around in the various topics I am interested in.

    *) Actively searching after specific "keywords" and topics (mainly to learn from other hubbers and to avoid writing on a too similar topic.

    And that's the tricky part. The Quality. I've never written movie reviews but now I am. Go figure. Now I'm trying to work up the courage to post my first short story.

        Okay... okay... I'll put it up later today. I've removed it from my personl webpage and will do an edit.

  8. vancouver profile image40
    vancouverposted 8 years ago

    building up the courage? go for it.

    and post 3 more hubs while you are at it.

    10+ hubs will help you maintain your +75 hubscore, or so i have heard,

    regards,

    It's 7:00am Saturday here. I'm not a night person, but I do hit the hubs early in the morning.

    My hub reading is pretty reflective of Euro's, although lately I've been so busy it's been difficult to read much. I do read the hubs of people I've fanned (most of the time...). And when someone in the forums intrigue me, I go and read some of their hubs. I haven't been disappointed yet!

      hubscore of 100? seriously share your secret with the rest of us smile

      1. lrohner profile image82
        lrohnerposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        LOL! Seriously, I haven't a clue.

        I pretty much ignore all internal scoring here (Except the 1st time I hit 100 when I had to pat myself on the back!) -- author score and individual hubscores. I just focus on writing quality content, building up backlinks, watching what works and what doesn't and tweaking a bunch.

          hint hint on the backlinks, bots?

          1. lrohner profile image82
            lrohnerposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            For backlinks, I use my own external blogs (where the topics are relevant to my hubs), build blogs to match other sets of topics I write about here (and vice versa), and really focus on getting quality DoFollow backlinks from other relevant sites.

            A lot of folks just go backlink crazy and, IMHO, waste their time getting lots of NoFollow backlinks. NoFollows don't hurt you, but they certainly don't help you either unless you have lots and lots and lots of them.

                I have a combination of both. I started out a few years ago being quite the newbie with just blogger blogs, and I found I just couldn't get rid of them when I switched over to my owned-domain blogs/websites. I mean, who would want to get rid of a blog that gets 15,000+ visitors per month, has over 700 one-way DoFollow backlinks, tons and tons of followers and readers -- and I haven't touched them in over a year!

                I've messed around with other sites as well like Squidoo and Zimbio, but just never fell in love with them.

    My brain couldn't write last night, but this morning its on full speed!  Good or bad, I'm more focused on my blogs today.  I haven't come up with any good Hubs that I think are potential earners lately.

    I read a lot of hubs, mostly of those who fit into two categories right now. First category are those who know how to make money on hub pages and are terrific writers.  I look up to those hubbers and enjoying their articles, and have learned a great deal from them.  Second, I read some of the hubs by people who post in the forums, mostly those who I've become familiar with & can easily chat back and forth with.

    I also back link on my blogs if the blog pertains to the Hub.

    Just finished another hub at 1 am EST.  I usually pick 3 or 4 fanned hubbers' to read and then come to the forums.  Here, I pick out a few hubbers I'm not a fan of yet, and check out what they have written.

    Friday nights, early Wednesday mornings - whenever I have free time for writing (beyond just popping on the forums to see what's going on and taking a break from more tedious work to add something).  I use the work day/week for "real" work - and write during any number of the "off" times (and sometimes "way-off" times).  smile
