For a little over 2 months now I’ve been running an idea that I came up with called the Weekly HubMob. Basically what the HubMob consists of is one single topic area that I choose each week that every Hubber can answer by publishing a Hub based upon their own take on the topic area. Wow, that sounded way more confusing than it really is…maybe a step-by-step list will help?
A HubMob works something like this:
- I come up with a ‘traffic-friendly’ topic that is posted each week as a Request. For example, this week I posted this Request about ways to save money and find deals on stuff.
- After I create the Request, I then post links to the Request and some other instructions on what the HubMob is, how to join it and why you should even care about it inside of the Hubber’s Hangout Forum. It’s always listed at the top of the Forum so that everyone can hopefully notice it. Here is what this week’s HubMob Forum post looks like.
- Once a Hubber gets a chance to take a look at the weekly topic and decides what they’d like to write about, then they click on the Request, write their Hub and publish it once it’s ready for the world to see. The Hubber is also asked to include a HubMob image and an RSS Capsule for the rest of the HubMob Hubs inside of their Hub. This provides some great cross-promotion and reading among the group of HubMob Hubs.
- After the Hub is published, the Hubber that wrote it is asked to post a link to their HubMob Hub in the Forums along with a brief description of what they wrote about and why. This helps the rest of the HubMobsters understand exactly why each HubMob Hub was written and how it applies to the overall HubMob Topic.
This week marks the 9th official HubMob and for a few weeks I’ve been meaning to put together some statistics, facts and figures from these first couple months of HubMobbing and today I officially got around to it. Here are some of the crunched numbers that I came up with after taking a look at the Hubs, HubMobsters and Topics that have been part of these first 9 HubMobs:
- There have been 9 official weekly HubMobs, with the first one, ‘Hairstyles, their history and how to create them‘, being created a little over 2 months ago
- 129 different Hubbers have become HubMobsters by contributing a Hub to a HubMob. That’s means that on average, 38 HubMobsters join in on the fun of the HubMob each week.
- 480 Hubs have been written specifically for the first 9 HubMobs, meaning that on average there are 53 HubMob Hubs written each week.
- The 480 HubMob Hubs have been viewed a combined 103,939 times over the past 9 weeks. This means that each HubMob on average has received a little over 11,500 views and that each HubMob Hub has received right around 215 views.
- The HubMobster with the most published HubMob Hubs is Julie-Ann Amos with 24 total.
- The HubMobster with the most HubMob Hub views is Anna Marie Bowman with 10,315 views total on 7 HubMob Hubs. Her single most popular HubMob Hub is Halloween Hairstyles.
As you can see, in just 9 short weeks the HubMobs are already showing some amazing stats, not to mention that we’re all having a ton of fun joining in on each one. If you ever want to join in on a HubMob you can always go to www.HubPages.com/info/hubmob and you’ll be directed to the most recently created HubMob so that you can jump right on in and become a HubMobster with no problems. If you have any questions, comment or ideas about the Weekly HubMob, please let me know.
