Just wanted to remind the newbies that the clock has already begun to tick on the holidays. I have a few Christmas-only hubs that hadn't seen a click since last December--until last week. They've each brought in a little bit of change every day for the past week. And I'm not talking about stuff people might buy all year round--these hubs are for stuff people would ONLY buy at the holidays.
If you plan on having hubs up for the holidays, you want to give them time to rank and age before the shopping madness starts. I plan on having all of mine up and ready by the end of August. The end of September is probably fine, but I'm not taking any chances after seeing what Santa left in my AdSense/Amazon accounts last year!
thanks for the reminder! I wrote a few hubs last year that accidentally did well around the holidays because of the type of product. I didn't write them for Christmas, they just worked well. lol I'm going to write some "on purpose" for the holidays this year and hope to have a much more profitable holiday season! Now is definitely a good time to start.
