      All and all, through out my three pen names, I have over a hundred.

      Many have like 500-900, a thousand.

      There's never "too much," there's always "not enough." smile

          Depends on what sort of Hubs they are. On here (and another) it's mostly just-for-fun stuff, that makes me a bit of $$$ but I do it more out of the course of the pursuit of intellectual and creative stimulation.

          Over time, some of said Hubs just don't work out. I'll usually unpublish them and revamp, spruce them up, and put them back out. It works out better that way--search engines love to see an article updated.

            Oh? I had no idea about the search engine love for updated articles. big_smile big_smile big_smile Maybe I should do that with all of my articles that I've yet to finish... Keep adding more and more, along and along?

    Why not publish them one after the other while refrencing them. It builds anticipation for the series. Just saying

      Well, I've done a links section on each of the hubs and on one of the hubs, it links to all of the hubs. I don't really wanna go through and disable the capsules, I guess. smile

      Agreed there, too. I group a lot of my articles.

      It's easier when it's fiction, or poetry, or something less subjective, and not when you're trying to write a series on certain products etc.

        Well, I guess you could say my upcoming series of hubs are "product" based, sort of.

          I would check out HubGroups. I use them a lot, and they seem to generate more views.

          Also, social networking among groups, topics, and sites that talk about what you write. smile

    How many hubs are too many hubs? This breaks down to what people learn about HubPages and why they are here.

    Those who write for fun, don't do anything to a hub once it is written, they never make any changes, except to post responses to comments left.

    Those who write for money, some create hubs and leave them as well. However, there are some who write hubs for money, but continue to make minor adjustments to them.

    If you are extremely familiar with HubPages, then too many could be over 300 or 700 depending on which method you choose to use.

    I have noticed a few quirks with HubPages, that makes me think that about 300 hubs would be excellent to earn a decent amount without hugely backlinking or promotion(just from Google traffic). However, SEO techniques are required learning if you want to earn thousands monthly.

    It would be best suited to have a specific plan to follow, for after you write a hub, such as SEO techniques, promotion and backlinking. It all has to be done to create larger forms of earnings. If you sell things, like many do, then SEO is still required, but your writing changes style, from writer to marketer. There is a difference, and you must realize the difference, so as to benefit.

    Just my thoughts.
