HubPages 60 Day Challenge - My Good Results

Ms. Inglish has spent 30 years working in medicine, psychology, STEM instruction, and aerospace education for Active USAF Civil Air Patrol.

A 60-Day Hub Challenge.

A 60-Day Hub Challenge.

Hubber Initiatives

Participation in various HubPages features is an effective and fun means to gain writing ideas and to promote your Hubs a little more (see How to Drive Traffic to Your Hub with Participation).

One fun feature is the 30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge that is ongoing for all writers that are members of HubPages. A new twist is the encouragement of Hubbers themselves to come up with the challenges! We saw that in some great Hubbers previously, including sunforged's 60 Day Challenge. In that one, 30 days were spent researching and writing fresh, high demand content, and another 30 days were spent in group promotional activities.The months after this challenge were some of my most successful in terms of number of views and amount of income earned.

If you want to gain more opage views and income, try one of the new Hub Challenges. They are usually listed in the Q & A section and in the Forums or in a Hub itself.

Hub Log, Supplemental

This is not Star Trek®, but we did keep logs in this Hub Challenge, listed below week-by-week.

This was an interesting experience that kept me engaged in the writing and publishing process on HubPages and taught me a bit about how to use social networking in promotion of Hubs. I tried many social networking sites and have used several more since this challenge ended, but I've found that the most effective for me are:

  • LinkedIn, an employment and social site
  • Google+
  • Pinterest
  • Twitter
  • Facebook

I also found that by just joining a structured writing program like HP Challenges can almost automatically begin to help organize one's activities. You can save time and achieve more good results within the challenge.

"Employment and Training" Is a Major Interest

(Sxc.hu/user:cobrasoft)

Week 1

April 1, 2010

Goals? -- Isn't April Fool's Day a good day to start a project?-- It gives us perspective. I've been thinking about my HubPages contributions and would like to improve in the following aspects:

SELF

  1. Gain increased traffic from current and additional sources. Five or 6 sources cover most of my incoming traffic and I'd like to at least double that number.
  2. Increase Google AdSense income by 30%,
  3. Double Amazon and Ebay earnings. This revenue is low and needs to go up or out.
  4. Increase the quality, usefulness, and broadcasting of my Hubs to the world,
  5. Increase my understanding and effective use of social networking and bookmarking sites; look at RedGage and join.

COMMUNITY

  1. Provide additional and more effective promotion ideas for HubNuggets Wannabes and others that contact me for suggestions in this regard.
  2. Recruit additional Hubbers to the HubPages community.
  3. Support other 60 Day Challenge Hubbers in their efforts and link with their Hubs and social networking sites whenever possible.

April 2 & 3

Examined RedGage and joined. Gathered initial link-ups with several friends. Posted two articles.

April 3

Topics: I like to write about Employment & Training (including City Reviews, to answer HubPages Questions, and to participate in the Weekly HubMob (Writing Challenges), now called Weekly Inspiration Topics. Within those three interests, I will concentrate on Health & Medicine, Food, History, Social Issues, and Education.

April 5

The HubMob topic seriously motivated me this week and I had a good time creating the Hubs. I experienced some awesome insights along the way about people I have respected and liked, but now admire for their courage as well. Several connections within my own history emerged from bits and pieces of the past that had been fluttering at one another.

I have found RedGage easy to navigate and use, attractive to the eye as well. Many Hubbers are already on RedGage, so it's rather easy to build a community and obtain followers. Other articles and posts on the site are entertaining and interesting as well. If you'd like to join us, you can click the link above.

April 6-8

RedGage works MUCH better and faster in FireFox than in IE.

April 8 - 10

Thus far, my 60 Day Challenge Hubs are attracting traffic from 6 or 7 sources, except the last two Hubs, published most recently. "Celebrating Easter Monday" has 12 top sources. Incoming traffic is increasing from Twitter this week.

April 11 - 12

With some suggestions from sunforged and other 60DC Hubbers, I figured out how to use Twitterfeed for Facebook and Twitter postings and picked up additional contacts via both those sites and HubPages. I also picked up followers and began following a few additional people on RedGage. Some experimenting through the weeks taught more about posting and how to schedule future posts at more effective times and frequencies.

April 13

A couple of my Week 1 Challenge Hubs are up to 8 traffic sources. Princessa's HumBob this week is all about Cinco de Mayo and I can add Hubs about Mexican and Mexican Native American history and cuisine. A good and fun topic this week!

April 14-15

The Scottish HubMob was too interesting - I can't stop writing about Scotland! I'll also publish my turn at the Weekly HubNuggets Hub the morning of April 16 and I hope readers like it. Everyone can vote for their favorite newer Hubbers' articles and make more friends there. We've been writing a continuing Space Opera saga week by week and it's taking on a life of its own.

April 16

Weekly HubNuggets Hub - Hubnugget Corps of Engineers. It would be great of all the 60DC'ers would visit and vote --Thanks! Update: The HubNuggets Program became the Rising Stars and then transitioned to Promising Topics on HubPages Forums main page, located at the top, in blue.

  • HubNugget Corps of Engineers

April 19

I figured out last week how to apply Shark Feed to a blog, and the result is that the 60 Day Challenge Hot Hubs are appearing as content on my blog. I have to go in and add tags and headings, sometimes additional text, but it's good content. It is increasing my overall Internet traffic significantly.

A also joined William Shatner's MyOuterSpace.com for writer's networking on Planet CREATIA under the governorship of -- Alan Dean Foster!

April 20

Here's another useful social networking site that also uses AdSense, Amazon, and a linked button to add to your Facebook profile as an app: YouSayToo.com - updated in 2016 with additional features.

I joined SheToldMe, because several other Hubbers are on this site and find it useful. Through 2015, it proved somewhat useful to me as well.

April 21 - 22

Hub traffic picked up significantly beginning April 20-21, a little higher yet on April 22.

Interestingly, a person on another site saw about the jelly Hub (below), did not read it or the Hub, and took off in a political tangent about corn syrup. it should bring some new readers over here.

April 23

In the Hub up for Friday, I learned more about a controversial vaccine for lyme disease that can cause the disease and arthritis as side effects.

I'm excited to see today's HubNuggets Hub when it's listed in The Hubber's Hangout forum today and see how many of our 60 Day Challengers may be on the list. I hope some of our newer Hubbers joined us.

My views per day have increased +1,500 daily daily average since April 18 and are inching up daily.

Week 3 Hubs

  • Top 10 Hot Jobs for Buckeyes

"EDUCATION"(1890), stained glass window by Louis Comfort Tiffany and Tiffany Studios, located in Linsly-Chittenden Hall at Yale University.

Week 5: May 1 - May 7, 2010

Among my Hubs, 6 made a score of 100 all at the same time, with several also at 99. The larges numbers of "100s" I had at once previously was 3 and one time, 4, during a HubMob.

Views per day remain at the higher level accomplished with the help of participating in 60dc. Increased traffic seems stable.

GOING FORWARD

May 8 - June 14

  • All goals have been met, except for Amazon and eBay. Update: Amazon results continued to increase after the 60DC Challenge, through a Second 60DC Challenge, and on to a high during late 2011 to early 2012. From that point forward, my Amazon results have become more robust as I laern to use prodcuts best suited to my Hubs, from the choices the Amazon site offers.

June 14 - June 22

This has been a fantastic week at HubPages!

For a brief time on June 21, seven (7) of my Hubs reached a score of 100 at once and the daily earnings was markedly high compared to usual, which is increasing right along.

I hope that all of your work online is paying off for you!

Winning!

From sxc.hu by soho13.

June 23 - July 7, 2010

The Hubs within this 60DC Challenge continue to help boost page views, clicks, and income for participants long-term. This occurred for me almost automatically for eight months after the HP Challenge ended.

Any of the HubPages Challenges can serve as tools with which to increase your Internet and HubPages presence with a new core of high quality articles that will continue to gain readers - and income if income is your goal - over months and years. Updating Hubs is essential in the long run for most Hubs, as new information becomes available or you write new Hubs to link to your Challenge Hubs..

I hope participation in HubPages Challenges will produce similar good results for all of our participants.

Best of success to you!

60 Days Equals...

1440 hours of momentum-building traffic and income.

Comments, Ideas, and Suggestions

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on November 26, 2018:

@Brad -- It would probably look nothing like it does right now, and I think I will likely unpublish it.

Written today, the article would have no links to my other Hubs, for one thing. For another, I have not completed one of the weekly, 30-, or 60-day challenges in ...years, I think. The only places I post links are Facebook and Pinterest; we used to have about a dozen places that were effective, including a couple of sites owned by Hubbers; but not now.

Topics that still catch my interest for writing are pretty much medical, historical, and the occasional political intrigue.

The Niche Categories have helped a lot with traffic and supporting authenticity, but I am not sure if Maven helps at all. I hope to see that it does in the future.

How about you?

Brad on November 26, 2018:

Patty

What would this hub look like if you did it today?

Do you think that Maven has helped or hurt Hubpages?

Thanks

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on July 25, 2015:

Cool Patty! I might join in, if I think of something.

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on July 25, 2015:

OK.I will try to think of one that people will enjoy.

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on July 25, 2015:

Okay Patty. Let me think about that one as long as you go first.

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on July 25, 2015:

Maybe some of us Hubbers will think of some additional challenges. I have not contributed one yet, so I will try harder. If you made a challenge, I would certainly participate. Happy One Year!

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on July 25, 2015:

Great hub! I would take on your advice and try to do those writing challenges, once my muse comes out of hiding. Maybe this fall. I do have some HP goals of my own, since I'm nearing my one-year milestone this fall. Voted up for useful!

mydulbd on June 25, 2013:

Really nice to reading some of the 60DC hubs and trying to pick up on some of the tips and techniques.many many Thanks

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on April 26, 2013:

HubPages Challenges suggested by Hubbers themselves are usually fun as well as good for sparking new writing ideas for the community. Some Hubbers are beginning to come up with new Hub challenges and I hope we see some more of them!

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on August 26, 2012:

Hi stevejones and thanks for commenting. Many Hubbers begin with a 15 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge and progress to the 30 Hubs In 30 Days. The next 30 days is, then promotion, in order to make 60 days. The plan has really worked well.

stevejones from Birmingham, UK on August 26, 2012:

A truly informative Hub. The 60 day challenge certainly looks a tough act but I'm sure it can be overcome.

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on October 21, 2010:

As far as I knew, it's still operating.

multimastery on October 21, 2010:

Way ta go! Glad to see your progress;) BTW how do I find Shark Feed. I Googled it but couldn't find it. Is it still up?

nms from Cochin on September 20, 2010:

since it it worked for you, will work for all. All points are valid

Dawn Michael from THOUSAND OAKS on July 14, 2010:

should have gone in on the 30 day hub with my marriage counseling stuff oh well maybe next time.

Rebecca E. from Canada on June 15, 2010:

bookmarked and rated up, now it is time for me to push myself, and make my hubs better, thanks.

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on May 25, 2010:

agvulpes - RedGage seems to work slowly sometimes and I don't know why. I shit the window and open a new one and begin again and it's fine - congestion, perhaps?

wavegirl22 - Yours is fine, I'm sure :) Mine looks odd to me, but it helped me get organized for the month.

Don - Congratulations on the AdSense increase the the 30 Hubs. I find the same thing concerning Amazon.

RedElf - CDR EE, I presume! The 60dc taught me a lot and this Hub really did help organize me - there is something postive about writing an outline for anything and then journaling. Thanks for your visit and nice comments. Cats are my favorite!

RedElf from Canada on May 24, 2010:

It's really fascinating reading some of the 60DC hubs and trying to pick up on some of the tips and techniques. Well done, and so well organized as usual, Miss PI.

Don Simkovich from Pasadena, CA on May 12, 2010:

This is an excellent Hub and a reason to participate in the challenges as a group. I like how you break down your goals for Hubpages which is what I have personally started doing. I've got an okay start this month for writing 30 Hubs in May. I'm seeing my Adsense income climb steadily and, like you, I have a favorite topic or two to write about. These are mostly informational Hubs so do better with Adsense than Amazon.

Shari from New York, NY on May 11, 2010:

your log really is terrific! so smooth and organized , , makes me feel like mine is one big collage mess.. . !

Peter from Australia on May 11, 2010:

Patty although I don't have the time to participate in the Challenges I am watching your progress and learning from your updates. So many thanks for doing this Hub (bookmarked)

RedGage is a good platform but at times I do have trouble with the uploader and my notification email links have stopped working for some reason?

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on May 03, 2010:

We all seem to be doing well, so a group effort helps everyone. Thanks for comments.

Gener Geminiano from Land of Salt, Philippines on May 01, 2010:

A way to go! Patty, hays I have some writing projects as it sidetracks me for a while, hehehe I started late I hope I'll be given some benefits of the doubts of still posting hubs in the days ahead. Great job my great teammate in the 60dc challenge...

Granny's House from Older and Hopefully Wiser Time on April 28, 2010:

Patty, I need all the help I can get. Thank you so much. Will bookmark and rate up

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on April 27, 2010:

Thank for for your kind words, Neil.

George Poe from United Kingdom on April 25, 2010:

That's really good info, thanks for sharing. Very good piece of writing.

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on April 20, 2010:

I do get a little bogged down in the social networking sites, but am getting better. We'll be learning a LOT abou that in the next 30 days, so I'm hanging on and hope others doo, too.

Sandy Mertens from Wisconsin, USA on April 20, 2010:

Great to read this. 60 day challenge seems like it would take a great deal of discipline.

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on April 19, 2010:

Friends - No need to pay $59/month or $67/month for Keyword coaching as advertised by spammers on my thread. Thanks and keep succeeding!

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on April 15, 2010:

Thanks, MM Del Rosario! - I'm still not as adept with social networking as I could be, so that's why I'm doing this particular challenge.

MM Del Rosario from NSW, Australia on April 15, 2010:

You are doing well in your 60 day challenge....

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on April 13, 2010:

Thanks for all the additional comments. I'm reading your Hubs as well. Congratulations on a good start and best success to you all!

sunforged - your HubsAcademy forum is A+++!

sunforged from Sunforged.com on April 13, 2010:

This log is enjoyable to follow along with, I hope to see lots of future success for you.

We now have our own forum - http://60dc.hubsacademy.com/

but most all info will still be completely available via our team hubs and the hubforums - but easy private communication and self-promotional posting is now an option

prettydarkhorse from US on April 10, 2010:

I wish you more blessings as you promote, write and help the community of hubbers, More power Mam, Maita

ramkkasturi from India on April 10, 2010:

Shari from New York, NY on April 04, 2010:

Patty - you are definitely one I need to follow around this 60daychallenge. Just reading your log I can see I can learn alot from you! I am almost as excited as I am scared but the race is on and I am in it to the end!

JJ182674 on April 04, 2010:

can i join in the challenge? I'm new in hubpages and want to give it a try..

Internetwriter62 from Marco Island, Florida on April 04, 2010:

Hi Patty,

I really enjoyed your hub, it is great to have found you on RedGage. I might check out the 60 day challenge, although I'm more of Hubmobster myself. Excellent hub.

Alfreta Sailor from Southern California on April 04, 2010:

Great suggestions, I'll keep watch, and later maybe when I can I will join in.

billyaustindillon on April 04, 2010:

Patty great goals and log - I don't think I am quite up to the 60 day challenge yet but will keep posting and certainly reading and rating all the hubs!

Faye Constantino from Florida on April 04, 2010:

Oh Patty, I am so glad you joined! This is going to be an adventure as we boldly go where no hubbers have gone before! I am so eager to learn, I finally joined face book, and redgage but don't have a clue what to do. I am so glad that Sunforged came up with this, I was flying blind! Even with your kind support over these past months I still have an awful lot to learn!

Andria on April 04, 2010:

Ahhh finally got here Patty. So many are joining now and as the 60DC is gathering momentum, I'm losing track of where I've been! Well I for one am most happy to see you participate and boy have you been productive already! As for redgage, I'm on there somewhere if you ever care to look me up :)

Patty Inglish MS (author) from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on April 04, 2010:

Thanks for reading and commenting, friends. If you cannot participate, just watch what we are doing and see if any of our efforts might help you in future. I will be happy to post what works best for me on this Hub! You can check back in from time to time and see what's working. I hope other participants will lend us all some advice by the time it's done as well. Anyway, it's exciting!

Anthony Goodley from Sheridan, WY on April 04, 2010:

I think this is a great idea that sunforged has here. I really wanted to participate in this, but I just have too many new projects to work on right now. I hope he repeats this again.

Sioux Ramos from South Carolina on April 04, 2010:

This is awesome!!! I like the milestones and goals you have presented, how great to not only share the challenge but the journey along the way. A great assist for others, wow, I really like this!

Hello, hello, from London, UK on April 04, 2010:
