What is the reccomended rate of publishing hubs?
Sometimes, publishing too quickly affects the quality of your work. We need the time to rehash, regroup and get over the writer's block that can hit quite hard at times. We must take note to publish regularly too. What are your views on how often we should publish?
I think it really depends on the hubbers skill at writing quality hubs. Some of my favorite hubbers can write a great hub in 30-45 minutes. But that's just not me. I usually take 3-4 hours to write a hub. I'm more of a technical thinker, so writing does not come naturally to me.
It takes me a lot more time to put my thoughts in to a well worded format. If I was writing technical documents I would be faster, but that's typically very dry to read.
So I would say as long as the quality is there publish as often as you want to, whether that is a everyday, once a week, once a month..etc...
I don't think that publishing too quickly, unless you're posting rough drafts, is really a problem, since it's easy enough to re-edit any hub you've already posted.
Yes, the focus should be on quality first. For me, the writing process is not so cut and dried, however. I work best if I just write, even if I know what's coming out is garbage, at least I have something on the page to work with. I'm an iterative writer, in other words.
Publishing at some rate may help you to keep the juices flowing, and help you meet personal goals, but I don't think it's going to have much effect on your hubbing success.
It is different for different Hubbers. The main concern should not be time, it should be good quality, entertaining hubs. Like you mentioned, if you get in a hurry the quality can very well suffer. We do not want this to happen because that is the main thing hubpages looks for is good quality, enjoyable hubs.
My understanding is that the recommendation is 3 a week but that's not realistic for most people. I agree with other answers that it's very individual and that your main focus should be quality. So take your time. I would add that you should try to establish a rhythm for yourself to keep you focused on producing regularly. It's hard to re-establish discipline once you lose it. I've been here for a little over two months with 23 hubs. I started out trying to put out 2 to 3 a week now I'm happy with one per week more or less. I think hitting 20 made me comfortable to focus on producing at a slower rate, learning more about "stellar secrets," and putting out at least one quality hub every one to 2 weeks. I gotta get to work now :-)
Everyone is different, and there's no set rate for publishing hubs. When you are happy and content with your hub, and you feel you are finished then publish it. The sooner you get your hub on line then the sooner people can read all of your hard work.
I am a proponent of discovery. exploration, documenting, and then measuring. Reading over the many great answers I see their is a common thread running through - individuality. (by the way, love the pup avatar. A great signal for caring and warmth. Great advantage with attracting readers. I learned that from another hubber Rosemay50).
Personally, I am on a five year plan of learning and earning here at hubpages. What I am doing 'is' unconventional and maybe not traditional. Yet, I am following a plan written around 1994.
The objectives I seek may not have an emphasis on the longevity of a hub for success. I wrote a series of hubs with a specific purpose. That purpose was how many views did those hubs receive on the first day. That is it. The information I sought to learn was just that.
Another is I wanted to know could I write a hub that would receive over 100 views in a singular day within the hub pages community without any SEO. How many comments did they receive. How critical were those comments. How long before a change occurred either positive or negative on the larger market measured with Google Analytics. And, would there be a residual return in the marketplace regarding trends. I really do not know if that is good, bad, or indifferent for hub views, yet the comparison is relational to the tsmog profile and relative to the successful here. And, then share those results somehow and someway.
For instance. I am pretty sure I will write maybe 3 - 4 hubs this month based on the criteria regarding goals and objectives. This month I will be putting forth an effort of Feng Shu(ing) my portfolio - declutter, declutter, declutter. Next, I will be seeking the principles of reduce - reuse - recycle.
So, I wandered a whole bunch midget38 to answer this question as a thought process. If it were a hub the answer may have been different. Audience comes to mind and whom the readership is relative to today. Thank you for this opportunity, of which you have presented.
Finally bearing in mind a portion of the background I have is in manufacturing. And, too, some is with Research & Development. What occurs at tsmog today, just may not be what occurs at a future legitimate venture at hubpages. Or, I am in the Research & Development phase now for the 'Master Plan.' Purpose for writing hubs bears much weight on the process of creating hubs and the hub portfolio. The rate for me is those long range goals, not short term. Flexibility.

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

I notice some hubbers publish two or more hubs at a time and just wondered if there is a benefit to this? Seems it would be harder having to answer double or more the comments if you don't get less because of publishing multi; or do comments not really amount to anything in the tally of things?...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

Published a hub on Oklahoma (please don’t get started on how it might be too generic – I had fun doing it). It became the template for my following hubs on Arizona and New Mexico. The Oklahoma one published just fine. The Arizona and New Mexico ones are now Not Featured due to Quality....

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.
