    Hea everyone just taking a little poll to see on average how many hours a week you spend working on hubpages, include the hours spent in the forums as a seperate number.  smile

    This actually is an ever changing number.  However I guess I would have to say I spend about 28 hours on hubs and about 10 or 12 hours in the forums.

    Just remember that is not a scientific number but rather aan absolute long shot answer.

    I spend about 8-10 hours working on hubs in one week. And, that's a guess. I really do not spend a whole re-vamping them, but do pay attention to keywords(and making adjustments) to see if things change.

    I am forever re-checking hubs, because I've noticed that there are times where I will read something and there isn't a problem with it, but next time I go back, I catch a mistake or two, I did not catch the last time I checked it.

    Otherwise, I have mixture of time and writing, plus offline items for which I work on as well. smile

    If I kept track it would be far to embarrassing to tell anyone the truth, so I plead the fifth!

    I don't hardly never get on this forum thingy.  An sometimes I don't even spend one hour on hubs or nothin'!  But since I'm here, I just gotta say that when I do write some trash or talk some trash on these here thread things - I have a real good time.  Yessirree - I have me a time! big_smile

    I write one or two hubs per week and each hub takes me maybe 2 and a half hours to write, so if we said 5 hours per week on writing hubs that wouldn't be far off the mark.

    I probably spend about the same amount (5 hours) on the forums, so make that ten hours per week all told.

    Hi katie, good to see you in the forum. smile
    I spend anything from 2 to 40, depending on the week! (Thats not including research, backlinking or the forum)

    It does seem to depend on whats happening in life as to how many hours I put in or how much I have been able to focus or concerntrate.

    I am looking forward to being able to work more effectively. Alot of time with hubpages has also been about learning how things work. From what to write, to how to write, how to take and source photos and how to backlink, find blogs, learn about different affiliates and find out if anything works or doesnt work.

    I should look at what people like Cagsil do as he has a great fan base and seems to know about key words etc that I havent bothered with too much as yet.

    I spend too much time apparently, usually about 4- 6 hours a day with different chores + writing

    I'm with Salt here!  A lot of my time is still being spent on research and studying up on how to make things work.  I really am trying to aim for a hub a day, but so far, it's not working out like that sad  But I'm willing to give it some time, so we'll see smile
