Going crazy with hubpages challenge …

hubchallenge 30 in 30

hubchallenge 30 in 30

Today there was an email in my inbox informing me that Hubpages have started a 30/30 or 100/30 challenge. So I decided to give it a go. For the ones that don’t know what this is all about, here the scoop in a nutshell:

Hubpages lets you publish articles about, nearly, whatever you like and shares the adrevenue with you. Other than with the today.com debacle you keep the copyright and full control over your articles (called hubs). So if you want, you can delete them whenever you like. They are a great way to ‘write your own backlinks’ but there are also some rules in place to avoid that spammers spam the site.

  • The most important one is: Only max 2 links to the same domain in one hub.
  • The other, less known, is that all your links are set no-follow until you ‘proofed yourself’, i.e. your hubscore is higher than 74.

I have written hubs before and made a few dollar extra in adsense income. So this challenge is now the ideal way to find out the real potential of it. Anybody want to join this race? I might start next one a similar test run for Squidoo 😉 SY

PS I am not completely crazy, I’ll go for more than 30 hubs in 30 days, but I seriously doubt that I will reach 100!

If you like this blog post and found it helpful, why not share it with your preferred social network? Handy links and bookmarklets above ^^^ 😉

  • I have not looked at hubpages yet – is it better than Squidoo? I found Squidoo just too darn slow to bother with.

    @Sher
    I will try to first reach 30 than I see how many more I can ad 😉 Just one by one, I have a lot of ideas to write about that don’t really fit in this blog.

    @Flit
    That I want to try out, I want to see how much a real effort will bring me, money and traffic wise. Both are good places to ‘write your own backlinks’ as long as you keep to the rules, i.e. doesn’t spam. What do you find slow with Squidoo, the page building process? You certainly can do more things in Squidoo, i.e. use html than in hubpages. SY

  • I’ve joined the hubpage challenge too. It’s going to be VERY hard work – took me loads of time to make the first hub. Then there’s the hub promotion side of things… Oh well. It should be interesting to see what the outcome of it is in terms of profit.

    Good Luck! Like they say, may the better win!

    The great thing with this kind of challenges is that there are no losers, only smaller and bigger winners 😉 SY

  • Wow!!! I love challenges and I love writing very much so I’ll definitely give it a go! Hurry! Hurry! Many ideas are coming into my mind right now 🙂

  • I’m not sure I want to blog for money any longer. I am enjoying the freedoms that come with my own blogs.

    Good luck to you.

    Good luck! Hubpages is surely worth a go.

    @Marilynne/Maxie
    Hubpages is not a blog, you write short or lolong articles there. I use it for themes that don’t fit in my blog(s) and/or for writing my own back links. But your are right, it is allways preferable to increase the content of ones own sites first 😉 SY

  • I’m not familiar with Hubpage to be honest. Is it like ezine or squidoo? But, you’re post’s very interesting, that’s why I’m quite curious.

  • hospitalera

    @Ellie
    Yes, hubpages is similar to Squidoo. SY

    You have to be very devoted and focused if you are going to take these kind of challenges. For me it’s best to take one task at the time and just go for it. Like building those 100 hubs/sites/posts first and then afterwards do the link building in a other task and then the next task…

    How many hubs did you manage to pull in that challenge in 30 days?

    @everybody
    BTW, I failed — horribly, but I learned a lot of this failure 😉 SY

  • Hubpages is great specially when you are just starting out to learn how to earn online. Hubpages is spidered frequently so you know that the pages you create will get found by the search engines soon enough. When writing a hub, concentrate on finding a profitable topic and don’t worry about promotion when you’re just starting. Soon you’ll see a trickle of earnings. The trickles will turn into real income if you just keep at it.

      Correct, and additionally it allows you to write your own backlinks for your niche sites and blogs, SY
