Thanks Christy for the link- that article was fantastic! What I really like is the proven data and research to back up what they are saying. I will be putting their pointers into practice with my hubs.
That was an interesting read, Christy. Now I am wondering if hp can add a capsule that allows us to include a “Tweet This” or “Share This” link to a short quote.
I appreciate that hp is currently testing the buttons for pinning and facebook etc. Might be worthwhile testing the 'short quote' option for tweeting as well.
Btw, I liked being able to monitor how many times a hub had been pinned or shared on facebook. To my mind, that's a good way of measuring the interest in a specific hub and seeing whether or not the photos are appropriate and generating interest.
Seems a shame if we try implementing the tips in the link you provided but lose some of the tools for assessing their effectiveness.
Good points, Baby-Boomer. I'm not sure if we have the engineering resources to implement it currently, but the "Tweet This" sounds like it might be a good one to discuss with the Team. I'll bring it up in our next meeting.
For now, if you want to know how many social shares one of your Hubs has, you can just input its URL into Like Explorer to find out. Hope that helps!
