    I just watched a youtube video where the guy said that he creates 20 articles a day. He didn't mention what platform he used but, it made me wonder how many quality hubs could someone realistically write a day.

      Heck, I can't even come up with 20 hub topics in 1 day much less write them.  I've seen a couple of videos that showed how to write an article in 10 to 15 minutes.  They both were about writing articles with the sole goal of getting readers to click through to an offsite page and thus were very much like sales pages.

        @Anesidora LMBO I totally agree.  I couldnt stay focused that long to write 20 quality hubs a day.

      What a load of rubbish,if i had enough ideas for good quality hubs then maybe i could write 3 or 4 if i worked into the evening,if its a topic i feel passionate about and i want to write say 1000 words with some videos and pics and links then i would say 2-2 and a half hours per hub,the quickest hub i ever wrote was an hour and a bit so he would have to work 24 hrs straight to accomplish that.Idiot

      I bet he's writing hubs about the same subject with a lot of the same content. I've read a couple of Hubs where the writer just seems to be repeating themselves with just a little more info then the time before.

      The research is what takes most of the time in writing a Hub.

    Personally, I can't do more than 3, maybe 4 in a good day.  Any more and the quality goes to pieces.

    In my own observations I noticed that there seems to be a correlation between the speed at which Hubs are created and the spamminess of the content or methodology behind them.

      Good observation...... I can't imagine anyone, spam or not, creating that many articles without a battery pack attached to their back.

        Good point @LSKing it is just totally unrealistic.  I challenge myself every other day to finish the hubs I have started, and they still go unfinished.

    2. wilderness profile image94
      wildernessposted 13 years agoin reply to this

      For sure.  I've done a couple of 30 minute challenges, and neither was well done and both needed touching up.  Neither had any research or anything to back it.

      Even that would take a 10 hour day for 20 hubs and they would all be crappy ones, both in content and research.  And probably spelling and grammar as well.  As you say, just spam.

        I threw three hubs up the other day with very little content, but I plan on updating them daily until they are complete (and the content I have lined up for them is very extensive).

        But 20 in a day means more than one person has to be writing.

        I could easily spit out 20 quality hubs a day...if I had writers writing and all I had to do was focus on the Hub its self.

            I would be interested in seeing this youtube video.  If you don't want to (or aren't allowed to) post it here, would you mind messaging it to me?

            I'll be spending my lunch break today scanning Youtube for videos about Hubpages.  I never thought to check there for info about Hubpages.

    I think they are probably using a tool of some kind and they are probably pretty spammy.

    I can't wait for the day when people realize that it's the quality and not the quantity that will rule in the long run.  What good is it to spend all that time creating spam just to have it deleted in a month or two?  Starting over takes so much more time and energy than continuing the momentum.

    Gosh 20?  I was thinking my 2 per day was doing something.  I try to make good quality Hubs and am heading in different area to try and appeal to many different readers.  All of my work at this time is from personal experience, I will soon hope to venture out of my comfort zone and tackle something that requires research.

    It just seems that with 20 there can't be any quality to it.  Maybe it's just a hoax to get people to his page.

      I was thinking the same thing the other night when I completed 2 hubs! I was so proud of myself.

      The research is what slows me down. I like to get at least three references before writing on a topic that I have no knowledge about.

        I am in a different league i guess, for me it takes three to four days to work on one and do the background work and publish it.
        After all that I am not so happy with it.
        I need to really speed up I guess!!

    The most I've completed in a day was seven (before that my record was five.)

    I work break neck, am a very fast typer and have my method down pat for most of the hubs I do.

    Even so, there's no way I could do twenty!

    20 seems to be a little far but it could be done. Who knoes big_smile

    However, if you have the facts (and really...really understand the topic well), I am sure you can complete one in about an hour time.

    The most I did was 4 articles on 1 day (considering i was off on that day) smile

      Good one.  Considering you were off that day.

      Just a few times I created a few hubs and one blog in one day BUT I was off that day and started first thing in the morning.  I took a break and sat down and did another.  Took another break and so on.  Twenty, no way for me.

    I try to manage 1 every 2 days, but I am also juggling a day job.. people should realise that the 'Quality hubs thrive' page which appears when you start a hub speaks the truth! longer more organised hubs do earn more money

  9. Pcunix profile image92
    Pcunixposted 13 years ago


    If I were writing about something I already knew stone cold, I *might* manage 4 in a day, but most of the time I have to look stuff up even if I do already know my subject - I am seldom so certain of my facts that I don't need a little research.

    Usually it takes me an hour or two to write the hub.  That's from formatting, choosing words, looking up facts, picking links where appropriate, all that stuff. 

    That sounds like it would be easy to squeeze four or more into the day, but it doesn't account for the time I spent days before thinking about what I wanted to say and how I want to say it.  I need time for that and everything else I do.

    I'd like to see the 20 articles this person wrote.  I expect they are junk.

    I usually write 6-7 articles a day across a variety of platforms, I also have two sites which run on automated content (These are currently test sites, not 100% sure how they are going to perform yet).

    I also hire writers when I get snowed under.

    1. Garrett Mickley profile image68
      Garrett Mickleyposted 13 years agoin reply to this

      I hire writers to write the articles that get posted elsewhere with backlinks directing to my hubpages (and websites).

      But my HubPages and 90% of my site content are all written by me (or someone else directly involved in the website, like my steampunk website has most of the content written by my biz-partner, and we get some fan-submitted content, too, which is always nice).

    There was one guy I used to follow (forget his name) that would create a bunch in one day. They were all a variation of the same hub. Same topic just changed the wording up. I got tired of seeing them so I stopped following.

    I think it would take me all day to find 20 appropriate pics to use on the hubs. I seem to take forever scanning through screens full of images.
    For the articles I guess it depends on what you call an article. I have seen some hubs with very little content and a whole bunch of pictures. Must confess to having one or two like that myself but in general I agree with most of the comments here. Quality will win in the long run.

    I can do 4-5 sales hubs, but those are pretty simple. More time consuming to get right keywords for ebay capsule, finding the best amazon products, and locating good pictures.

    I can get 1-3 really good non-sales hubs in a day, depending on the topic.

    I can't even imagine! It takes me a couple of days to just do one hub.  On the weekly Hubmob for Deaf Awareness, I actually beat my own paltry record by putting up 2 in one day.  I'm trying to imagine doing even just 5 - 6 a day, wow.  I just don't have that much imagination or creativity... or lack of distractions (2 kids, 8 dogs, 1 cat) to do that!

    There are a lot of variables, like the quality and length. But I think some people are just gifted at writing and could possibly achieve this task daily. (I am definitely not one of them) smile A couple quality articles a day, consistently, would be stretching it for me!

    I can't imagine writing 20 well researched and thoughtful hubs in one day, even though I'm a very fast typer and don't have to spend much time correcting my stuff. But bringing content to "paper" just takes time and if you do it like that, it just adds to the constant stream of rubbish that is swamping the internet.

    And then there is the publishing! It takes hours to find the right pics, and then to assemble it into the right form. Clearly, when you do 100 words articles about the same topic without pictures, it might be much faster, but who on earth wants to read that???

    Does the world really need 20 more articles in one day about the same or pretty much the same?

  23. kerryg profile image81
    kerrygposted 13 years ago

    The most I've ever managed to research, write, and publish all in one day is six and I wasn't delighted with the quality of a couple of them. Three or four is the most I can do and be happy with all of them, but that's not a pace i could keep up for more than a day or two. I usually do one or two.

    20 articles a day could be done, just not by me. smile It really depends on the platform and specs.

    There are lots of folks at DS that manage to write 10 to 15 a day, and I think I saw someone once talk about doing 20. But there's a huge difference between 20 250-word articles and 20 400- to 500-word articles, especially if the title of said articles are about something simple like lacing shoes. smile

    It really boils down to how many total words you are writing and how much research needs to go into them--not total number of articles.

  25. prettydarkhorse profile image55

    I don't think I can write twenty, four is my maximum in a day, that is because my hubs are 1000 plus words and I researched about it also,

    I'd bet if he's writing 20 articles or hubs a day... they are junk. I can't see more than one or two quality articles in a day, but that's just me (and as you can see from the number of hubs I have, I should be talking about the number of hubs a year, not in a day. wink

    The most I have ever published in a day is one hub. Yes, it takes time to produce something of decent quality but for me, I think I need to work on not censoring myself so much. I think it will help me as I learn to write more just whatever comes to mind (hopefully not garbage) and not have to constantly go back and delete things and rewrite them.

    I think the most I published in one day was 3.  I guess if I had all day and night to write, I might be able to do like 5.  20, though??  Either the person spends a lot of off time doing research, jotting down notes, something, has someone helping them, types at 1,000 words a minute...heck, it would still probably be junk.  The person should have provided the url for his account, so we could see the "quality" of the 20 hubs he publishes a day.

    20 article is possible.
    ~ famous copy paste method
    ~ only photo
    ~ 50-100 word description with a lot of amazon capsules
    ~ a little description with a lot of video capsules.
    And at the end of the day you will also be able to open a forum post naming "celebrating my hubber score of 1"

    Of course it could be done, if you have no scruples, cut and past, steal images, re-hash old work with a new title.  Some people are absolutely driven and do create quality work quickly.  For the rest of us mere mortals with other commitments, the idea of 20 hubs a day is laughable.  There's enough drivel out there already!

    I have a list of topics I'd like to write about that would keep me writing for the next 3 months, even at 20/day, but I still don't think I could do it. Perhaps with a full-time commitment it would be possible, but that's still 2 hubs an hour for 10 hours. Too much for me. I tend to start a hub and then keep writing and writing and next thing I know I've spent over an hour on it.

    I agree with many of the previous commenters. If you have no desire or intent to post quality content, then you can absolutely post 20 hubs per day. My suspician is that most sites would lose matience with you rather quickly.
