This week's HubMob has taken more of a consumer, money-spending, self-indulgent shift, which is totally OK with me. You see, this week's HubMob Topic of Products, Products And More Products! Hub about a product that you love or that other people love is designed to appeal to that inner mall-loving, electronic-buying, web-searching, credit card-swiper that's inside all of us. The thinking is, if you write a Hub about something that you love, then you're most likely also writing a Hub about something that other people love, too, which means that they're probably out there searching for it.
So, with this week's HubMob, you should pick some type of product that you love or that you know that other people love and create a Hub that will inform, educate, entertain and possibly persuade those people who read your Hub and help them decide whether or not the product(s) is for them. These Hubs should have better potential as revenue generators and you'll also find that they're pretty fun to write, too. One good example of a Hub that would be great for this HubMob topic would be the one that Mark wrote on Five Best iPhone Bluetooth headsets.
I was partly inspired to create this HubMob after reading DJ Funktual's Forum post that had him asking why he wasn't getting any revenue-generating traffic on his Hubs. One of the main reasons that many brought up was the fact that he should be writing more about the issues and products that he uses as a DJ as opposed to writing about pure entertainment topics. Hopefully this will be a good way for DJ, as well as other Hubbers, to get a better grasp on creating Hubs that are more revenue-friendly. So, pick some products, do a little research and get to Hubbing!
Oh, and be sure to have some fun.
To join this week's HubMob, please follow the steps below:
1. Come up with an amazing idea to write your Hub on that has something to do with the topic of products that you love. Make the topic your own and feel free to have fun with it, research it or wing it. It's up to you on how you write your HubMob Hub.
2. After you come up with your topic idea, click this link and answer the Request that I entered in for all of you HubMobsters. Feel free to use the tags that I suggested or add a few of your own.
3. Write a an awesomely comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea. Be sure to add an RSS Capsule that includes the RSS feed to the rest of this week's HubMob entries (Link: http://hubpages.com/request/7915/best?rss) and also add one of the HubMob images below to your Hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.
4. After you publish your HubMob Hub, reply in this Forum thread with a brief description of what topic idea you wrote about, why you chose it and a link to your newly published contribution to the HubMob. I mean, we all want to see, too!
5. Keep track of your Hub and keep us updated on any traffic that you're getting and post some screenshots if you end up HubMobbing a few search keyword over on Google.
6. Promote the HubMob by sending out this link to your friends, family and complete strangers http://HubPages.com/info/hubmob
Nice topic this week, I shall get on with one right away.
Oh, not sure if I'm missing something, but can you do more than one HubMob in the same week?
Cheers Ryan, keep it up.
Yes you can, WhoArtNow. As many as you want.
Thanks for the encouragement, I hope that everyone likes this week's topic. It should not only help us all learn to write better product-based Hubs, but it should also be a great time to have these hubs out there on the Web since the shopping season is coming up here very soon.
Feel free to add as many Hubs as you'd like to the HubMob - the more Hubs the better!
Also, I have a crazy idea that I've been thinking about here lately and I think I'm going to try out over the next month or so and it has to do with product based Hubs. If I can get the guts to do it I think that I might be able to do something pretty cool. I'll keep you all updated.
OKthis is my first attempt at a hubmob thingy I hope I got it right! I have done a review of Cases for iPod Nano 4G
Why this particular item? I didn't do a lot of research but I know the iPod Nano 4G is new so there will be a demand for the accessories for them: the cases are cheap and light - so a perfect item to buy online.
Oh and the rss feed is not working properly: I can see items in the feed in edit mode but once I save and done editing it reverts to no items in this feed message!
You will find a leading space in the URL just remove it. I had this problem last week and that's how I solved it.
Ok, Here's mine. I chose this product because I love mine and use it all the time. Possibly more hubs to come later this week if I survive my HubSomnia. LOL!
Food Prep Made Easy: The Bosch Mixer Compact (MUM 4420) - 400 Watt
MAN I so could have done my Christmas and Hanakkuh hubs with this request. lol Oh well... Back to the drawing board. Shouldn't be too hard to come up with something though, just a busy week with classes and work. :-/
Like the subject Ryan...now have got to think of something!

Ryan you have always had the guts....now I'm worried!...what are you thinking? LOL
I'm thinking of doing a type of 30 Hubs in 30 Days HubPages Rally...I have the products that I want to do it on, I just need to do a little bit more research so that I can get to writing every day without spending too much time looking for images, videos, etc.
Now that'll be interesting... Will it be like 30 of the same basic thing? IE 30 headsets, 30 hair dryers, 30 swiss army knives, etc?
It will be 30 products overviews by the same company and they will all be linked together and will be summarized in one overall Hub at the end. Like I said, might take a little bit of planning, but I think that it will pay off bigtime...especially with the holidays coming up.
This series of Hubs inspired me and got me thinking about this idea:
Paul Edmondson talks more about these Rolex Hubs over here in one of his latest Hubs:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Making-Suppleme … wn-Economy
They're making $100+/month and have been for quite a while...and they probably will for a while, too.
This IS a FUN topic this week! I combined Culinary Arts and Martial Arts in this one --
Okay I'm going to whine now. Why can we not have a good subject this week? I don't like this one!!!
Just kidding. Honestly the subject is great I'm just not with new gadgets I guess. Ask me about old stuff and I'm there. zs
Who says that this has to be new gadgets?
You can write about scrapbooking paper, sewing machines or anything else that you like. Please don't feel like this is strictly for tech-based products, feel free to write about any product that you have bought lately or would want to buy sometime soon.
I'm going to write mine about a certain type of messenger/laptop bag.
I was thinking the same thing as you because the only gadget I have I already wrote about . This morning I was glad to see people were writing about a variety of products, so I was much relieved .
Hi here is mine. I am quite new here check it out whether am i done any thing wrong.

I haven't missed a hubmob party yet-- but this one is a little tough for me. I'm not a big shopper. Though, I have recently bought a couple of new items that I have never owned or used before. Maybe...
Well-- I'll keep that secret for now. One of the things I bought several weeks ago but just tried it today-- not finished yet. The subject got me to put it into use, to see if it works. (Heh heh.)
The French Press Coffee maker http://hubpages.com/hub/Buying-A-Good-Coffee-Maker
With about 4 hours of sleep last night I could have used one of these this morning...
In my never ending quest to make every topic in the HubMob one that relates to cats, here is my latest:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Online-Sho … and-Secure
I hope this fits into the subject?
I got taken away into another area
online shopping .....
which I love to do... lol
This week was a hard one to write
Here is one more hope you like this one

Here is mine for this week:
Princessa, are you trying to tell me something?
Thanks for pointing out, once again, that men and women are sooooo different.
Could you guys imagine wearing gut-slimming boxers?
I am not interested in writing a hub about this product, but I thought someone with kids might enjoy writing about this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faa_G-25 … re=related
They could include this youtube video and it would make a very cute hub.
Wow, Tigger really needs to lay off the Starbucks...
I write a lot of product reviews for my blog. So now that the HubMob topic IS about product reviews I decided to do something a little different. Because that's the kind of rebel I am.
So my "products" are television shows. Specifically, television shows that scientists have found can make people smarter. (And we are talking entertainment shows here not, you know, PBS nature specials). I tried concentrating on the intelligence-boosting aspects of each show rather than writing a critique of the shows themselves.

This is a true life story this week for the hub mob including a review of different types of condoms, I do hope there is no offence caused.....jimmy
Okay...I actually did one...and I'm rather shocked at myself.
I hadn't set out to write it...it started as just another funny story, but then...out popped the product and I suddenly realized, it's rather important, especially now at this time of year. So...I can be comforted by the fact that I wrote this for purely philanthropical reasons
http://hubpages.com/hub/Carbon-Monoxide … arrassment
This is my first one where I actually tried the amazon capsule, so I just picked a favorite topic and hubbed away:
I forgot the answer the request, but here it is
Here's my Ode to my Toyota RAV4:

Selling Fake Products is a Booming Business. Don't you be fooled! Here are the Top Selling Counterfeit Products.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Top-Selling-Cou … t-Products
Okay, got my first Hubmob topic up - with errors I think. My pictures didn't show up and my Amazon capsules didn't show on this nor the first one I published. Oh well. I'll get it figured out eventually.
And OMG!!! I have my first fan! Thank you to whomever you are! When I get that figured out I'll reciprocate.
On to my topic. It's about those handy counter top gadgets the Food Saver and the Seal-a-meal. I did a comparison (albeit a biased one I confess) on the two products and my experiences with both.
Hey Good Job Susie...It's hard to figure everything out when it is just your 2nd hub. You will soon figure out the photo and amazon capsules. Did you remember to save them? Also here is the most important thing, the link to your site so people can find you. http://hubpages.com/hub/FoodSaver-vs-Se … comparison
Well duh-huh-uh! How embarrassing. Of course it would be most helpful to you all if I put the link in. LOL! Thanks so much Dottie for doing it for me. You folks are great!
I didn't know I had to click on the amazon capsule and actually enter something into it. I thought it was automatic. I learned two more new things here today! Thanks again!
http://hubpages.com/hub/FoodSaver-vs-Se … comparison
You're Welcome Susie! I've been here 11 months and there are still things right here in the forum that people do and I don't know how! I don't usually ask ahead of time because by time I actually need it I forget or my notes are covered over in a heap of junk! So I ask as I go along. Well I'm off now to read your hub!
and one more the Brown Betty
Here is for all you sneaker heads and chicks with kicks
http://hubpages.com/_moreinfo/hub/Sneak … e-1-Review
This week I wrote a product Hub on the Writer's Market book. Here it is:
OK, since you (eg. Ryan) had to stretch a little to consider television shows as "products" I decided to throw another hub into the fray of this week's HubMob:
The Best iPod Speakers Revealed
http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Best-iPod-S … led-Review
UGG Footwear and accessories are selling out faster than the Shoe Warehouse I work in can supply them to the stores, I thought I would add this review to the HubMob collection.....jimmy
Hey Ryan I got a great topic for next weeks HubMob.... Viruses and getting the bugs out of your computer.. everyone deals with these adware bugs and the new vurtumonde.dll that is IMPOSSIBLE to remove... I thought we could get a bunch of people writing hubs on the different things they came across and how they got them out.. this could be good for the community.. I for one found my solution to vurtumonde in a hubpages hub (thank god she wrote that hub!)
what do you think guys?
That is a really good idea Jerrico, and something people would search for. I remember back in 2007 I had just moved to this new apartment and my computer got a very ugly virus because I had not had time to install virus software. I rushed to the store to buy a CD, but then later I learned there was software I could download on the Internet. Interesting topic.
Here is another hubmob on the Zojirushi Bread Maker. I baked some bread today and thought I'd share about why I love my Zoji.
I finally wrote a couple of product Hubs. One was about using stretch magic for jewelry making, and the other was about my personal experiences with cell phones. I always have fun with the HubMobs.
I really battled on this one I am not a sales oriented person but here goes:
http://hubpages.com/hub/HubMob-Weekly-T … a-lifetime
That's awesome! Nothing like fresh Google traffic on a hi-tech hub.
I have a question though - if someone forgets to click on the "answer request" link, is there a way for the hub to still be associated to the request later on? Some magic button behind the scene available to admins or something?
Here's my HubMob Hub...and I have more where this came from.
It's on the Timbuk2 Classic Messenger bag, which is the bag of choice out here in San Francisco and I'm guessing(and hoping) it will soon be the bag of choice all over the US and world. Yeah, that would be nice...
I didn't add the HubMob images, etc. because this is going to be one of a 20-30 part series that I'm experimenting with.
Here's the first of mine: http://hubpages.com/hub/Product-Review--Mark-Hookups
Let me know if this is acceptable, because I don't want it flagged as overly promotional. I'm going to do more product reviews, on all sorts of products, but want to make sure the format is acceptable (with the links and everything). Thanks!
Here's another one. http://hubpages.com/hub/Product-Review- … a-for-Cats
Here's mine. A departure from my usual work, this one is totally straight and serious. "Buyers Guide to Gift Baskets for All Occasions.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Buyers-Guide-to … -Occasions
Well, finally ...
Here ya go!
Sister hub coming shortly...

update - Ooops - found it! Thanks much!
