I'm doing a sales hub challenge and am running out of ideas. I've been lazy so I plan to get them all done in the next few days.
I'm planning to do the keyword research but I just need ideas for basic areas - for instance I've covered some wedding ones, done a valentines one, small electronics etc.
General subject area ideas welcome! thanks
But I need general areas to type in to narrow down to specific keywords. And my brain hurts.
just type random words into a search engine, and see what comes out with search assist
Hmmm maybe I need to do keyword research about mother-in-laws again. Mine's coming up IN TWO DAYS TIME!
But I don't feel like writing. Or researching. I just feel like randomly throwing words down and hitting publish.
Congratulations on the progress. I actually thought of you last week (because of your apparent thing about "mothers-in-laws". I just learned I'm about to become a "mother-of-the-bride" and so, consequently, of course, a mother-in-law! muahahaha!!
Congratulations - to you! Not so sure about the bride...
Nice people have a way of becoming EVIL mother in laws.
How about a sales hub on products that people genuinely NEED whether they're big money-makers or not?
Maybe I've got premies on my mind tonight (because of kmackey's news), but how about a Hub on items made specifically for premies? OR, how about one on nice mother-of-the-bride dresses (not fuddy-duddy ones)? How about one on back-to-school clothes for kids of different ages? Or, I recently heard of "groom's cakes" for weddings (had never heard of them). How about a Hub on those?
It's always heading into summer or winter somewhere in the world so what about something on portable air-con or heating units ~ maybe not wildly exciting but practical and people need them.
Ok thanks you three... you've definitely given me some ideas to think about!
In particular Lisa, those are pretty good ideas.
I looked at you hubs you wrote about Maternity. You can extend those hubs to some maternity product for mother, or baby shower gift.
Just some ideas
Thanks Andy. I do have a baby shower hub (un keyword researched) but despite thinking it's of reasonable quality it's never had a single external hit
heres my take on the issue ..a bit longer than a forum post
Finding things to write about
I'm not suggesting about the baby shower but gift for baby shower such as: baby crib, travel baby crib, or crib mattress, crib bedding set or something like that.
Christmas is coming and so is Halloween! I get quite a lot of Hub topic ideas from looking at the keyword report on my Google Analytics report - quite often visits are coming from keywords that I haven't actually written about, but when I look them up get quite good traffic.
I also keep a list of topics and when I'm reading the paper or a magazine, I jot down things that interest me - I currently have 14 pages of hub titles and not enough writing time!!!!
A few ideas I am tossing out here for you to think about, use as your own discretion.
Australian Rules Football
Asthma In Australia (just curious myself as to why we seem to have the highest incidence of it in the world?)
Holidaying destinations (& in Australia)
Famous Aussie actors/musicians/politicians
Hopefully that's enough to get you started on some new idea's
OK. I really hate being mercenary BUT I can be if need be. So How about just checking what's hot online and then simply promote merchandising connected to the top ten hottest things whether it be a TV show, a movie or a celebrity?
Thank you all for the ideas. However I only have 14 hubs to go and I now have about 30 different topic ideas. If you're not careful you guys will force me to do another 30dc....
Oops! Sorry! Wouldn't want that! Would rather see you do something CREATIVE/LITERARY for the next one!
Haha depends where the money is! Although I've done about 5 or more non sales hubs during this challenge couldn't help myself - so I'm not counting those.
No! Don't worry about the money just be creative for the next one! Don't worry HP will paste ads all through your hub anyway no matter what the subject!
Do a Hub on solar powered Christmas lights, would appreciate a link back to festivechristmasdecorations.com or festivechristmaslights.com for the tip
Just because you have one hub in a niche, doesn't mean you can't do more. You said you already have a baby shower hub, but why not expand? Gifts, games, decorations, etc?
I'd suggest finding a theme and writing several on the same idea. Sit down and see what all you can come up with on one topic. Or come up with a few topics that you think you can come up with a few different hubs on.
Just because another hub has been written on a topic you want, that doesn't mean that you can't write on that topic too. Take it from a different angle.

Hey everyone,This might seem like a silly question, the answer to which is probably glaringly obvious to my more experienced fellow hubbers, but I'm truly at a loss here. I'd like to know how you come up with original hubs to write after doing research on a proposed topic. Nearly every...

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you are doing. So I wonder, with some people pumping out huge amounts of hubs, are...

Short Pat Pat on the back, now for all you big money ad-sense guys and gals, I have analyzed my traffic and the convergence of 200/400/1 seems to be a tipping point in the acceleration of earnings, since I hit 200/400 mark, I have had some earnings pretty much every day (though not always from...

Ok this is not for promotional, only as an example of a recently published hub.http://hubpages.com/hub/Is-Space-Travel-Worth-The-CostThat or feel free to visit my hubs pick a random one..Although a few I understand why they are not earning anything but ones like this above (Only as an example) or...

There are tons of hubs on keyword selection and the various tools one could use to make the process easier.But, like most things 'net - they are mostly copies of copies of copies or poorly strewn together theories by intermediate writer-marketers ..So I ask... what was truly masterful, what made...

..only to find that, a day later, someone else has used that exact same long-tail keyword to create a page somewhere that boosts themselves onto Google's front page and messes with your ranking in search engine results?Am I just paranoid? I doubt it. Share your thoughts on this, please.
