When You Write a Hub, How Long Do You Wait Until You Write Another One

    I am just a little curious about how much time people normally spend posting backlinks to their hubs before they actually write another one. Any advice or input will be very helpful.

    Also, how many hubs do you normally write a month - Just curious smile

    Thank You!

      I go through periods, where I am inspired to write several hubs within a few days, and publish them straight away.  Then I can go weeks before writing another one.  It just depends if I find something I want to write about.

      It depends on many factors. I've had up to 30 hubs going at the same time. I would write a little bit in one, then save it. Then write some in another.

      It is completely up to you what you want to do. wink

      I have a very willy-nilly approach, depending on my time, mood, energy, and whether or not something occurs to me to write.  It might be a month.  It might be a half a day.    I don't do backlinks at all (lol), so I'm not one to offer advice and not one anyone should emulate.  smile  In all seriousness, some of my between-Hub times is spend on things like cleaning up whatever I think needs to be cleaned up in/with the bunch of existing Hubs.  Some of it is spent writing Hubs that I don't post (at least right after I write them).

      My advice, looking back on three-plus years of my own haphazard approach:  If you can, write as many a week as possible.  They build up over time,  If I'd actually believed I could really on here back then, I may have written more.  It's only with the benefit of hindsight that I can see what I could have been earning if I'd approached things differently.  (Now, I don't have the same kind of time/energy that I did in the first couple of years, so the picture is different again.)

        This may not be a question that you are willing to answer, but I am going to ask it anyways smile

        You had said that you do not post backlinks anywhere for any of your hubs. I was curious as to how much money you generally make. If you are uncomfortable answering, then how many views do you generally get per day?

      I am averaging about 20 hubs per month, but lately, I have averaged about 2 or 3 hubs per night.

      The answer to your question is that you do not have to wait at all between hubs. Write as often as you wish. It works for me.

      My readership has increased so I've been trying to do 1/wk to be fairly predictable. Doesn't always happen but that's my goal.

      I barely know what backlinks are though I believe I've employed them in my Hubs (are they links, simply? If so, I've used plenty, especially in older Hubs)...I am concentrating on content and audience at this point.

        Backlinks are links placed elsewhere that point to your hubs.  Interlinking is one hub to another (also good).

      I love to write however it has been a good while. When I am not ether working, going to collage, or doing projects for clients then I get to do my hobby which is writing. At this very moment I have so many project going on I am lucky to find time to breath.

      It depends on if I've prewritten some of the content before actually creating the hub. If I have, say ten pieces of content for ten hubs already finished, then I could put the finishing touches on those hubs in one day. But if I am writing it from scratch, it seems that I go in spurts.

      Some weeks I don't write any. Some weeks I may complete twenty or more. But it all depends on how much I've written before I even started the hub.

      I am not talking about duplicate content. Sometimes I just write the content in a word processing document before I create it so things look like they go faster. But they don't go faster - I did a lot of work in the back end.

      It varies depending on available time and my workload. I think it helps to set a weekly or monthly goal.  In addition to writing hubs, it's important to review and comment on other hubs, and work on ways to link back to your hubs (through another website you might have, blogs, facebook, twitter, etc.) to boost traffic.

      I also believe in good "quality" hubs, so I think if you have 10 great hubs vs. 20 so-so hubs, go for the quality vs. quantity.

    smanty, it's not that I'd be uncomfortable answering either of those questions, but I think it would be a disservice to you (or anyone else reading here).  The only reason I answered before was that I was being honest and pretty much focusing on how often I write Hubs.  The Hubs I have a big, varied, mix; and some of them do far differently than others.  If I had the same number, did things the same way I've done in the past, but had a different 300 or so Hubs, what the earnings/traffic would have been would have been a whole different combination of figures.  The Panda changes make things even more complicated.  Whatever went on for any one Hubber (like me) has changed so drastically (at least in my case) that there's really not a point in even mentioning any pre-Panda numbers anyway.  Right now (like so many people, probably not all), I may as well be brand new and figuring out what will/won't work from scratch.    hmm 

    The right title, the right keywords, and backlinks (although some don't do backlinks) are the things that increase traffic and earnings.  If I'd done a few backlinks the earnings and traffic would have been higher.

    Write as many as you can.  When I don't write on here, I write form my other sites.  Focus on traffic in the medium to longterm.

    I write when I am inspired that is pretty regularly.. two hubs a week or maybe just one.. I write on other accounts, other sites and my own blog so now the effort is spread out. But just writing is not enough.. you need to back link and get traffic.. so there is more work to do smile
