Anyone Up For A Challenge?

Recently I have been writing a few hubs(posts) on Hubpages. Hubpages is a site where you can write about just about anything, and they share the page impressions with you. So when someone looks at my hub on getting rid of credit card debt, 60% of the time my adsense ads are showing and 40% of the time the hubpages ads are showing. My clicks go into my account and I don’t have to trust HubPages to pay me. Having recently been burned by another get paid to blog site, I really like the way HubPages pays.

So here is the challenge, Can you write 100 hubs in 30 days? And if you did, what would your income be?
You can join the challenge over at HubPages, but I would like to make it even more fun. Sign up for a HubPages account using this link.
Then join the challenge and start writing hubs. Leave a comment here with a link to your new HubPages profile. Anyone who signs up under my referral link and writes 100 hubs before June 17, 2009 will receive $5 via PayPal! That will be in addition to any Adsense, Amazon, and eBay affiliate earnings you get from your hubs. (That will go direct into your affiliate account.)
If no one writes 100 hubs before June 17, 2009, then I will give one $5 prize to the person who writes at least 25 hubs and has the highest number of hubs written.

Now I have to get busy. The challenge officially starts on Monday and I need to have a few hubs ready to go!

Im in, are you?

I'm in, are you?

  1. This is a really interesting “paid to blog” idea. However, what sort of bunts can you make from it? I seem to reading the top earners were on about $500. Would be good if you lived in India or other countries where the cost of living is small.

  2. That would be a challenge. I’ve never gotten into creating hubpages but if you can get $1/day for each page then you’d make $100/day at the end. I’ve never heard anyone making money off the adsense from hubpages. I only heard of people promoting products.

  3. Is this open to anyone please or is it for members only ?

  4. Yes, the concept behind Hubpages is good and you get a lot of feedback from other users, but I’ve written quite a few pages there and the revenue isn’t quite as good as with other sites I write for, like, where you have one-on-one editors giving you all sorts of tips on how to write for the Web.

    Still, hubpages, helium and ezinearticles are all good places to start if you’re serious about writing for the Web.

  5. 100 hubpages in 30 days, I wonder how many people will try that and generate mediocre content. Some professional bloggers can really do it but for many others writing even 1 blog post per day is a huge challenge.

    Good point Jeet. It is doubtful that anyone can create quality content at that rate. Which is probably why in the seven days since the challenge started I have written exactly 0 hubs!

  7. ~Kat~ says:

    It is a good place to start. And how much you can make really depends upon the quality of your articles, and how much search engine traffic you can generate.

  8. ~Kat~ says:

    You have to become a member to start writing hubs, but membership is free.

  9. ~Kat~ says:

    I have been with hubpages for just over a month and have written only 6 hubs. I have earned just under $5. I am not getting rich, but it does bring in a little.

  10. I know some people who are actually capable of writing 1000 to 1500 words almost everyday and still maintain good writing quality. But even they would fail at this challenge. It’s not a ‘typing’ thing.

  11. I have not tried Hub pages yet and it seems like a very difficult challenge. I tried something similar on Associated Content last month and they reject about half of my article, it was not worth my time. I prefer to stick to writing content for my own blogs and guest post on other blogs. It may take a little longer but I would rather get 100% of adsense revenue.

  12. i really like the challenge :) found it a bit late so it’d be a 28 day challenge but keen :p just found hubpages so would be good way to get into it. watch out, may just be claiming that $5 prize!!

    also, would really like to work out how you have wordpress display related posts… is it a plugin because all the plugins i’ve found have been useless.

  13. That is pretty tough to do and requires a lot of time. Curious, what is a hub?

  14. ~Kat~ says:

    A hub is what hubpages call a page. Same as a Squidoo lens.

  15. RlsLog says:

    I am not sure whether I could make 100 pages in 30 days ! :P Though I have never heard about earning Through adsense at hubpage. Can anyone help me outt?

    Thanks in advance.

  16. Barabra says:

    Since you mentioned about Squidoo, I heard Squidoo pay us if our lens are ranked so high. I’m not sure about it. Have you ever tried creating Squidoo lens?

  17. Do you think hubpages are better than Squidoo? Its a bit easier to write a hubpage.

  18. Hubpage is pretty good place to generate traffic for website and most important is content you post there should be unique and url can be posted in the content and the link is nofollow but in case wit squidoo we can have a dofollow link.

  19. ~Kat~ says:

    I have a few Squidoo lenses that I made before I knew what I was doing. One of them has made a little money, but I still haven’t reached the payout level and it has been a few years! That is why I like Hubpages better. The earnings go straight to my account and I don’t have to hit any certain level to get them.

  20. ~Kat~ says:

    When you sign up for hubpages there is a place where you will input your adsense code. From then on, all your hubs will have adsense ads on them, and 60% of the time they will have your code. Someone clicks and the earnings go straight into your adsense account.

  21. pradanang says:

    so which one is better? hubpages or squidoo?
    i never create a hub, so it is worth to try, is the traffic good?

  22. yeah, the concept behind Hubpages is good and you get a lot of feedback from other users, but its too challenging, i m sure beginners will be able to compose only 1 page per day, lol

  23. josh says:

    When I do a Google search I notice a lot more Squidoo lenses coming up then Hubpages. If it were me I’d focus on Squidoo, but having never used either I can’t say for sure.
