What would Hubbers Prefer

    I am writing a series of hubs on how to make money online with no cost.

    This isnt a trick, it is actual fact and it works.

    The hub series will be about 7 hubs long. 

    Now my question is?

    Is it better to write one and publish it or write all 7 and publish them at once.

    Thats it for now

      Which would be faster? I'm ready to learn! wink

      Dale, I wrote a series of hubs and published them all at once so I could get sort of a table of contents in them (How to write bylaws) and they all get decent traffic.  I'm glad I waited to publish them all at once because you know how easy it is to get distracted on here.

      My answer would be to wait and publish them all together OR they each have to stand on their own as a hub.

      Dale I believe doing it in a series is always preferable. One reason why is its just a fact people have a short attention span.And I also believe that Information is best digested in small bites ( or bytes ). I look forward to checking it out !

      I am for the Series! Speaking of which, I want to know when you are done because I have 41 hubs and am trying to get all this stuff going. I know I am new. But when I go back to work ( if  any time soon) I want to have my basic system in place.

        Well, I do want the hubs to be flawless.  Meaning I want to make sure I dummy it up so that no matter what everyone can understand it.

        I want to try and not miss even the smallest steps.

        I am guessing that the entire series will take me at least 4 to 6 weeks.

        In my head, only because I know the steps it should take me about 5 minutes but we all know how that goes.

        Anyways it looks like concensus goes to releasing all the hubs together.

      i would publish them all one by one and then link to each one, just because few people have time to read seven hubs in one sitting. good luck whatever you decide smile

        Hi cosette,

        Yes, over the weekend I spent an hour connecting my free websites to my Hubs of similar topic/subject.  I also put a free hit counter on each of the free websites I created to have and idea of the traffic.

        Linking all of your work together is a great idea.  I already received traffic to my free website which are now posted on my of my Hubs.

        Excellent advice.

      I've read many Hubs about improving search engine indexing.  From what I have learned and have read time and time again, the more content the more search engine indexing URLs should receive.

      Let me know what you decide to do.  I'm curious.

      One at a time so we can grasp the information easier..

    It is easier for me to click onto the next hub right away rather than it is to remember to come back for the next one. Is that what you were asking? Holly

      Excellent reason to wait... I mean, if you're writing them for hubbers, remember that we are easily distracted by our growing population smile

    Sorry, Dale...I should have give you a more serious answer. Personally, I would probably like to see all seven of them at once. That way, I could just read and study all of them without having to wait in between publishings.

    Hey Dale!

    Well that really depends on the content of the hub.  For example, if there are steps that one needs to put in place (ie. applying for Adsense), then it would be better to publish one at a time so that one step is completed before the next is available.

    On the other hand, it is advantageous to have all seven hubs at once (ie. if I already have Adsense, I can click on the next hub and keep going without stopping).

    It depends on how you want to lead the reader. It's either hand in hand or let the reader decide what he/she wants to follow and do.

    Good luck, and I'll be reading these hubs (yeah, lots to learn still... ).  big_smile

    Oh yea, it sounds like a good idea for that ebook you were talking about.

    1. Dale Mazurek profile image71
      Dale Mazurekposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      The ebook I want to write is about Ezinearticles.

      This project will be my biggest undertaking yet though.

      I want it to be completely understandable for everyone, and I want people to see there are ways to make money online without having to spend money.

      I really got encouraged over the last 2 weeks when my email inbox was just full of new 79 dollar garbage programs.

        lol you must subscribe to the same newsleters as I do, problogger, copyblogger, yaro, howie, chadwarrior... smile they always send me the "next big thing"  I never buy into their promotions but they do share some pretty good ideas now and then.

        I'm going to write here for another month then I'm taking a break to work with a programmer friend and developer on an idea I have for article and internet marketers to get all the promotion they will ever need. Once the site is up I'll be looking for beta testers but that will probably be around the end of summer. If you're interested Dale, PM me and I'll tell you the idea. I think with your experience you can let me know if I'm on to something. smile

    I think I better make sure spell check is working lol.  Was just reading my posts,  yeesh my spelling can really suck

      I'd say do them all at once.  The only thing you "lose" is the time it takes to write them (which is what, days? A week or two?)  So, even if they do stand alone, by having them all out at once, people who are really into the first one, can move to the next etc. and won't be stuck waiting on you to catch up to where their interest was left hanging.  Making them wait means letting them go find the rest of their answers elsewhere.

      I would go with publish all at once too. smile

      I say, do whatever you want, whatever works best for you.

      I would end up bookmarking them if you published them all at once, as I wouldn't read 7 hubs in one sitting.

      I would probably bookmark them anyway regardless of how you publish them. smile

    4. darkside profile image80
      darksideposted 8 years ago

      Either way would work. But it will depend on how you're actually writing them.

      If you're working on it as a complete draft and perhaps adding or editing things here and there as you progress through each one, you could wait until the whole lot is done. But if you're tackling each one until completion you could post one per week over 7 weeks. It could build anticipation.

      I think all at once. It would make them easier to read as a whole.

      I prefer when people publish one at a time, as they write. It's a small thing - but annoying - it happened yesterday. Three hubbers I follow published like 30 hubs each each within a few minutes. My inbox was ridiculus and it took a while to delete everything.

      One at a time I'll read when it arrives. 30 I don't have that much time in one day. And I'll probably forget to read the rest.

    7. Dale Mazurek profile image71
      Dale Mazurekposted 8 years ago

      Well I think I have decided what I am going to do.  I will write them all and then publish one every 2 days or something. 

      I just want to make sure I have them all done so I leave no one waiting.  In my life you just never know what might come up and I cant get a hub done for a week or so.

        I think it's a good plan.  Hubs do best with a tweener length, imo.  I did a recent series where I had them all written up and then published same day.  I should have staggered, as you plan to.
