Reasons NOT to write 755 hubs: (lol)

    1. Any "slap" by Google is in direct proportion to the number of hubs you have. For example, in most cases, if you have only a couple of hubs, you got a "love tap" from the Big G. With 755 hubs, I received a full roundhouse punch.

    2. It takes for freakin' ever to go through 755 hubs and adjust your Amazon-words ratio. (Fortunately, I didn't have to do many of these.)

    3. It takes for freakin' ever to go through 755 hubs and delete the news feeds.

    4. It takes for freakin' ever to go through 755 hubs and do general "tweaks" in hopes of making G happy again.

    5. When you have 755 hubs, you get accustomed to earning a substantial amount each month from Adsense. Now, not so much. In the past, I was really enjoying the $50 days I was experiencing. Yesterday, I made $1.27 in Adsense - for 755 hubs. Thank goodness the HP ads are helping me recoup at least part of my former earnings.

    Someone is trying to purchase some of my hubs, and I've seriously considered selling them. I'm holding out to see if things with Google improve.

      Ouch, that's a lot of hubs to edit. IMO I would hang onto your hubs. Things will get better, they always do.

      I would only sell your hubs if someone wanted to give you around $10,000 for all.

      Otherwise you'll be back to making that much or more in a year once things get back to normal. smile

      Wish I only had 755. Don't hold out. Pick 10 to promote and sell the rest.

      So I think everybody had record low earnings yesterday. I made 60 eurocents which was my single worst day since August when I only had a quarter of the hubs I have now.

      Anybody know what happened?

      Habee, now you understand why people like Nelle have multiple HubPages accounts!  I'm finding managing my Hubs a trial even with less than 200 - if I were planning to write a lot more, I think I'd start a new account for each separate niche.

      I can't help it. Writing is in my blood. Sometimes I think I have ink in my veins. lol

        maybe use those writing skills to write a book, or could you compile some sort of book with some of your hubs?

    he-he tongue

    Seriously speaking - it must be quite a pain. May be this is why I don't publish many? Don't sell them though, the game is not over yet smile

        Love ya too - and did not mean any insult. Obviously an attempt to lighten the mood was unsuccessful. I'll try better next time. smile

    Update:

    I just checked my Adsense for today, and it's doing much better - not where it was before the Google change, but a heck of a lot better than yesterday! Dare I glimpse a glimmer of hope??

    Well congrats of writing all those hubs!!! But YES I feel your pain when it comes to maintenance, BLEH, good luck!

    True, but I'd still have the same number of hubs to sift through. Might be easier if they were organized under different accounts, so I see your point.
