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....
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.
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.
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.

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?

I decided not to leave hubpages but since my traffic was split in half several months ago it seems as if my subdomain is struggling to get back up.We all know that Google, the internet master, prefers niches sites over content farms (sites with multiple subjects). Given the newest update and...

Is the growth sustainable? When I arrived 4 months ago, we had 400,000 hubs. What is it now, 500,000? Does this site really benefit from people writing almost identical hubs on the same topics?When somebody arrives they are told to write, write, write, write. 30 in 30 basically. I am being a little...

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your pages are and how good they are etc, but what are people actually earning? I am not...

When you send out the request for an account should you get an email back right away or does it take a while? Will the not respond to you at all if you've only published one hub? Does anyone know of a way to contact Google? Or a way to cancel your google account? I signed up, I...
