To share my hubs on social networks I need to go into each hub, artificially showing as a reader, to grab the link. If there was a way to grab the link without going into the hub, our stats would be more accurate.
The short URL is available in the Hub Metrics tab under Stats when you view a Hub. Even to grab the long URL to your Hub, you still have to view it and copy/paste from your browser URL field.
MickiS, when I am working at my desktop computer (not my iPad as I am doing now), I just right click on the title on the My Account > Hubs page to grab the long URL. Am I doing something wrong?
Micki--I know how to grab the URL from Hub Metrics and do it to post on Twitter of FB. But, aren't I showing up as a reader when I do that? Or, even worse, a reader who only looked at my article for less than 10 seconds. You have to open the article in order to access Hub Metrics--a tool I am obsessed with, btw.
I know this doesn't give a direct solution to your problem, but if you use Google Analytics instead of the HubMetrics section, you can apply an IP block (I do this) so that your own views won't show up in your Analytics.
I wish there were something like this for HP, tbh.

Make that "suggestion" ... Ahem ...Anyway, I'd like to have the option (prior to publication) of either changing the hubs URL, or waiting until I'm ready to publish the Hub and then select the URL. I'd also...

I am referring to the 12 character short URL associated with every hub. Have you ever used it? Do you use it often to promote your HubPages articles although it has no SEO value?
