    Has anyone tried 30 days 30 articles kind of a challenge? And what effects has it shown to your analytics in terms of your traffics, ads and revenue.

    You can try it, but it's not advisable. Quality not quantity is what works here. As a grizzled old journalist, my view is that it's not possible to write a high quality article in one day. You can write a superficial piece in that time frame but, in the long run, a well-crafted and researched piece will win out.

    I wish I had that kind of free time. Lately I have enough trouble coming up with one hub every 30 days.

    Rupert is right. Back in the day, 30 day challenges on here were common and often encouraged. But nowadays, quality is king.

      I agree quality is the king. I was only asking if somebody has done that or not, and what kind of effect it has produced on your traffic or on your earnings. It's quite understandable when you are looking for a quality article it is difficult to come up with every day of a month.

    I did it, I posted 32 articles in 30 days, and I was lucky that all of them get featured in no time, some of them were moved to niche sites, I gained a lot of traffic too, but my hubbers score went down badly from 81 to 42 within 3-4 days.

    This thing stressed me a lot for a week or so, then a fellow hubber on a forum discussion advised me to stop writing articles for a few days and to update the ones already posted but to do it out of HubPages and once it has done, update using the edit button from the authors view tab.

    I followed the steps, and now am gaining back my lost scores.
    It is what I experienced
    now I am writing articles but just 3 or 4 a week
    because I want to make it richer in quality

      What's the significance of these scores? I've always wanted to know but never got an answer. And how do we increase it?

    I saw a lot of ppl with low hubber scores although they are nice writers
    But I myself felt discouraged
    It shows how you well you are doing here

    You can read my form discussion to get know the whole thing
    Where a lot of hubbers told me, how much these scores matters
    And what else I can do to gain the scores back

    I have not tried and would fear to try. I feel I'd have all my chores waiting for me after, have dilute quality articles posted as a result, and a long lineup of editing to do after the fact. I won't try it, but wish luck to those who do.

    I have gotten pretty close to that when I first started. (I think my second or third month here.) I got lucky with one article. I would say that quantity gives you a better chance of getting an article the search engines like, but only if you can do it without sacrificing quality.

      I agree, it will hamper the quality of the content.

    30 articles in 30 days would put you under a lot of pressure and it'd be very likely to sacrifice quality trying to meet up.

    I would go for a less stressful option like one article every three days, which would come down to 10 articles a month, and then as you get the hang of this schedule, you can work your way up to a new challenge.

    I've done it. It was grueling, but in my case I don't feel it hampered the quality of the content I was producing. If anything, I think it challenged me to write better quality content. You can always edit your hubs after you've produced them.

    30 tends to be the minimum number of posts on a blog to catch the eye of regular readers, and therefore I would personally consider it the minimum number of articles a HubPages account should want to have. (Most of mine have far fewer than 30 articles, but I also had spent a lot of time not writing.)

    You can edit the articles after they have been published, and therefore I think this challenge is good for anyone who would like to get their account established quickly. QAP should catch anything that is of substandard quality.

    I published two hubs yesterday, although I had begun both of them over the weekend and outlined the articles before I wrote the content for them.

    I disagree with many here, though: I do feel that this can be done and done at high quality depending on a number of factors, including the length of the article, the speed at which you write, and the format the article takes. If you lean heavily on lists (which I do), the article can both be highly readable for your reader as well as quick to write.

    I took part in the challenge here, years ago. Twice actually. I found it quite exciting and fun.

    I must say it helped me build up my accounts (3) in no time. And I started to have an increase in earnings too.

    I can’t attempt to do the challenge anymore. Writing articles is no more fun for me. It has become a chore. But I’m glad my earnings still come in steadily.
