Who made the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge?
I see a lot of really crapy hubs with little information or information that is already known to the general public.
Is there some advantage in taking up alot of web space?
I've participated in 4 hubchallenges since May and will start another November 1st. Flag the crappy hubs as you see them and let the HubPages staff take care of it. There are MANY advantages for taking up my share of the webspace. Write more than 6 hubs and you'll begin to see the difference yourself.
I think it depends on what you want to do on hubpages. If you want to write quality stuff, you will get a loyal readership, and they will click on your adsense. Your readership will grow. I don't think that happens to the crappy-written hubs. It's like the book publishing industry, thousands of books get published, not many get more than one printing.
I would rather do quality hubs in low numbers. I see many want a lot of friends as well. But my life has suggested that one good friend is better than 100 fair friends.
It's been proved over and over again, regular readers don't click on ads.
The people who click on ads are the readers who arrive at your Hub or blog after finding it on a search engine. So having a large readership has only an indirect influence on your Adsense earnings, by giving you good traffic, which raises your page rank.
this has been discussed before...... hub pages like good quality hubs in quantity,,,,,, i think,if possible but no pressure.
The 30 day challenge has not increased the amount of crappy hubs, they have always been there and they always will be. Flag the bad ones.
I agree. The 30 day challenge isn't a contest and there are no prizes at the end - it's purely a self-motivator. If you look at the really crappy Hubs, there's no indication that they were written for the 30 day challenge.
I'm not trying to be rude, I just don't see how its a motivator. What is the motivation for people to write about things that they don't know.
I can understand peoms, short stories and things of major interest. Eveything else can be found through search engines and is written better 99% of the time.
If we all took that attitude, none of us would be here! Poems, short stories and current news stories are generally poor earners on HubPages. What makes money is evergreen content - even though it's true you'll find thousands of articles on the same subjects if you Google.
The 30 Day Challenge doesn't set subjects for you to write about - you choose your own topics, and write about what you know.
the thing is about friends on hub pages, we all want to improve our writing, and spark creativity. I have one really good friend, she does not write, or show any interest in writing, so she is not much help in that regard....
and how many of those "friends" do you think actually read what you write?
Often times it is the crappy hubpages that are well worded with the right amount of keywords but not enough information and clarity that get the adsense clicks, as readers want an exit, so they choose an adsense ad to try and not waste their time fully by landing on trash content.
But then also good quality content has also been known to attract the adsense clickers from all the corners of the internet, I think the trick is to strike a happy balance of information where you leave some room for others to go and find out more through an ad.
ah, good point. I learned something.
If I've learned one thing since I've been here it is to concentrate on your own Hubs and not concern yourself with what others are doing.
Best reply on the whole thread.
Quality is important though, and the more quality hubs I read the more it makes me want to improve the quality of my own.
It's not like I am hub police or anything. I just had a few questions. they have been answered.
Generally, the person with a couple of hundred Hubs will earn more with that many than he did when he had twenty Hubs; so one point of challenges is to motivate Hubbers to write more Hubs. Encouraging writing more doesn't mean also encouraging bad quality. The "sorting process" is designed, in general, to steer traffic away from the lower quality Hubs (which is/should be incentive for Hubbers to aim for quality).

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

Well... I had thought about the 30 in 30 challenge but never got around to it for various reasons. With me being in Iraq, my time is divided amongst many, many things and therefore, I do not get to make it online every day. However, I really wanted to do 30 in 30 so I had to make myself a...

I have only been a member of HubPages for 5 weeks, and already I have made close to $1,000. I know that this is not exceptional for some Hubbers, except I only have 13 hubs, I am not an internet marketing guru, and my hubs are not that exceptional or keyword optimized. In fact, the only...

So, Hubtivity is swamped with new hubs that nobody really wanted to write and nobody really wants to read. The natural (and excellent) dynamic of this Great Domain is destroyed. And those of us who have work to do or are less than competitive by nature can only sit back and wait for the feeding...
