How much time do you usually spend researching on a topic of which you are going to write a hub?
I can't imagine writing more than 2-3 hubs per day if you are really trying to create quality content.
Still, there are some fellow hubbers who produce much more than that - and I don't understand this.
How much time do they, or basically anyone usually spend on researching a topic before writing a hub?
For me it depends a lot on how much I already know about the topic. For some of my topics that I am extremely familiar with, I may only spend 10-20 minutes looking up some additional information.
If is is a topic that I don't know about, or am researching for another reason and decide to write about, I may spend hours.
I have noticed that some Hubbers will take a certain topic, research it thoroughly, then write multiple Hubs about different aspects of that topic.
It depends if it's a situation in my life that I have experienced, Therefore all of the information is ready to write. If it is a topic that needs to be studied? It can take up to a day.
I do my best not to write about things that require long amounts of research. 2 reasons. One is that I have 3 children and limited time and two is tht I think it's best for people to stick to subjects they have knowledge about already. If it requires more than 30 minutes of research I must not know enough about it to make it my opinion of quality in a decent amount of time.
I spend between a half hour to several hours researching a topic, even for the subjects I'm intimately familiar with.
much depends on the type of hub - i can easily produce 3 hubs in a coupla hours for recipes - especially if i already have the basics on file. I did this just a coupla weeks ago to answer a question about using oranges for non-dessert recipes. I just had to search my database of unpublished recipes.
I've got dozens of other proto-hubs waiting to be developed, so there are several topics I could write quickly
another type of hub would be travel hubs where i can break the trip into multiple segments. here i start with my journal / notes, then select images, create a map and can write several hubs fiarly quickly
i rarely start any hub totally from scratch
People differs when it come to researching,some may take less than five minutes,and others take even a week.For me during my daily duties,i usually noted down when something came to my mind,then i will carry research slowly.
I read a lot every day. Setting up Google Alerts, checking the latest infographics, reading industry-related news etc. When I see something interesting or heavily researched data, I collect the URL links. Then, I’ll sort them by topics and compile them into a long list. When I want to write a hub, I’ll just pull the related articles out. There are times when I would need to research slightly more about the topic (especially if it’s a topic I’m unfamiliar with). But the articles should be sufficient to create a decent hub.
Which means I’m actually researching every day for my future hubs

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...

How much time do you average researching your topic for HubPages?I find that I spend at least 3 to 4 hours reading and researching a topic before I even start to write my hub. Maybe that's why I average one hub a week. Do you have any hints or tips for speeding up the process?
