Time To Make a New Plan!

So, I'm a tad off target with my residual earnings plan aren't I?  LOL

That's ok.  Sometimes you just gotta stop what you were doing, refocus, and get inspired again.  And there's nothing better to get you inspired than...

...a challenge!

A couple of writing chicks that I know have gotten together to inspire each other with a $50 a month HubPages challenge.  And I love this type of thing so I jumped in even though I was not on HubPages before.

I've put up my first two hubs and have decided I like it so I'm going to give it a go.  I'm still going to do InfoBarrel as well but I'm going to lay off of Bukisa for a bit.  I have a lot of content there and while I get more traffic there, the click throughs are not fabulous.  HubPages has a multi-earning thing going on (you can earn from Adsense, the HubPages Ad program, and Amazon) so I think it might be worth exploring.  And the community seems pretty nice, too.  That's one of the things I love about InfoBarrel so I figure that will be a perk at HubPages, as well.

So, what is this plan you might ask?

Well, once again, I am being aggressive.  I don't do anything half way.  I figure that I can dedicate an hour a day to MYSELF so I'm going to do 1 article at HubPages and 1 at InfoBarrel from Monday - Thursday.  Friday is going to be backlinking day.

One thing I am going to do a little differently is I am going to have a theme for each week.  Like this week, the theme is teens.  So, by the end of the week there will be 4 teen themed articles at HubPages and 4 teen themed articles at InfoBarrel.  The HubPages hubs will be interlinked to each other and to the IB articles and vice versa.

I'm also going to use other sites to build links, like - they are pretty cool because you can build a list and each point can have a dofollow link in it.  I'm going to use Blogger by creating a blog on that theme with a 100-200 word summary of each article and a link to it (and of course, the blog will be Adsense and Amazon optimized as well).  And then I will use my other bookmarking sites to create links, too.

I'm going to try to check in here weekly to share what I have done.

  1. I'm in the process of writing 4 hubs at once. May turn in to more once they are finished and I edit. I don't like them to be too long or people stop reading mid-way. When I do a similar topic it is easier to write a few at a time and then post 1-2 a day. I would like to see $50 a month. Right now I hover between $7-8 because I have not posted to any of my revenue accounts. Once I start again it usually tends to stop at $15. I can't seem to get past that.

  2. That's actually a pretty good idea Crystal. To write them all at once. I could likely actually do that if I dedicated an entire day to working for me and only for me. I'm sure I could pull off 8 articles in a day on one theme. Hmmm - might have to give that a try.

  3. Hi,

    Oops I realised when reading this post, I had misread your monthly report regarding the amount of articles you had on Bukisa. Best of luck with hubpages this month.

    Best Regards


  4. Thanks Andrew. I have had some good clicks lately so my choice of keywords must be decent. But I am hoping when I improve my backlinking techniques things will pickup. :)
