    My import just went through, and holy crap do I have a lot of work to do.  The profile I've been using for a few months on Hubpages so far (goatfury, this one) is doing great, and I have 29 Hubs:
    http://goatfury.hubpages.com/

    The import from Squidoo, where I had 85 lenses, just went through:

    I knew I was going to have some work, but holy wow, that is going to dominate my Hub time for a while!  Any tips on making the transition easier?  Those with a lot of lenses, how are you doing so far?
    Just for fun, here's a picture of our current foster dog, Coco.  smile

      Mine just went through. Seems there is a lot of material missing. I hope that Squidoo doesn't shut down their site for some time, because I can grab some of the missing links, photos and text while it's still up.  Four months doesn't seem enough time to get all this done.  Not sure how many of my 193 lenses will have to be fixed yet, but you're right ... we're going to be busy.

      I'm not sure how to do all the editing yet to keep them out of violation.  Guess we'll have to learn.  Hope your aren't too hard to fix.  Blessings

        favored, I am only currently allowed to edit and publish 3 Hubs in a day on that other profile, so it's going to move pretty slowly at first (I don't know if that will be lifted at some point; hopefully so). 

        Stay in touch and let me know how it goes for you!

          I've been looking at my lenses/hubs and don't want to be afraid to edit them, but I'm not sure what to tackle first.  How can we get all our hubs fixed in 4 months if we're only permitted to do 3 per day? There's no way to meet the deadline for some people with way over that amount.

            The three-a-day limit is for publishing new Hubs.  It does NOT apply to editing articles transferred over from Squidoo.

            Maybe it's just publishing a new one 3 a day - I had to upgrade a few of the WIP lenses and maybe that's what I was going for.  I could be confused.  Will try working on some tomorrow and report here.

              Somehow I did not see that 3 a day limit. Maybe not noticing because I can't possibly get one written in a days time, so it didn't register for me.

              I am tackling as many of the skull decorated lenses as possible at one time.

      Same here- I've been working like crazy on it. Happy about it, though.

        I published the 3 WIP lenses yesterday, then another today.  Working on upgrading the ones with low hub scores.  What do you guys think is a good score to shoot for as a minimum baseline?

    Hi, I have over 250 lenses, now hubs. I'm trying to edit a few a day based on their traffic and whether they have skulls. A lot of work. My CJ affiliate inks are gone so I have orphaned photos and orphaned text in many hubs. I'm deleting most of these capsules as I edit and if ever there is time I may add back the code under the 2 external links per hub rule.

    Steady progress. I already have ad $$, made an amazon sale and was just accepted to the HP eBay program. Yeah!

      That's great. I'm glad you are already having success.  Does the sale show on the dashboard?

      1. MyFairLadyah2 profile image61
        MyFairLadyah2posted 2 years ago in reply to this

        The amazon sale shows under the amazon report under Earnings. I've read in another thread that HP is enhancing the report to show the source hub of the sale, but for now you can see the item sold. I think the reports show earnings after 1-2 days.

          So you have no idea what hub had the sale?  That makes it a bit difficult.  Hopefully this will be resolved.

            Fortunately for that particular sale the source hub was obvious to me.

    Mine came across this afternoon and I managed to revise 9 of them without a hitch (except for a wee red skull, which went away with the AllPosters links).

      Barbara I'm glad you were able to fix it quickly. Don't know what to do on my affiliate ones; they don't make sense now.

    I clicked on the little red skeleton head at the bottom of my account page to see what violations I had.  There were five articles listed as overly commercial and it took me about 1/2 an hour's work to do each one ... mostly adding text boxes between the Amazon capsules.  Afterwords, it showed I have no violations.  Now, I will take my time to go through the rest of them and see if I want to make any changes.  Maybe this will help things go easier for you.

      Good luck, Deborah!  That's pretty much what I've done as well.

    All 157 of my lenses transferred. Only 14 red skulls. Eliminated all but one on a first pass. One took a second pass. All gone, now. Some reviews and others that were largely sales oriented are very short on word count in the text areas. Will that become a Hub issue, later on? I'm just cleaning up each one, right now, to make the presentable. Oh, I did delete five on the first pass that were simply lacking good enough content for a Hub! ;-)

      goatfuryposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      I only had one red skull and fixed it immediately, but I'm also very concerned about the hub length.

      That's wonderful!  So good to hear they could be fixed easily.

    Coco is super cute.  I don't envy the work you all have coming from Squidoo.  The only advice I can think of giving in regards to length of hubs is to take a good look at the hub.  Does it look like a hub or does it still look like a lens?  If it looks too short and has a number of product capsules, you'll most likely want to add text.  Although HP is a revenue sharing site, hubs are more of a magazine type style of writing.  Products can be shown with photos, interesting content and informative text so that it doesn't look like a catalog page.  The showcase should be the writing itself, engaging the reader in some way, to inform, entertain, advise, inspire.  Good luck and enjoy the process!  I've noticed some very good hubs being produced by many of our new hubbers.

      Great advice!  I'll definitely view my former lenses through this... lens.  smile

      This is one of most useful pieces of information I have found regarding the difference between a good Hub and other types of writing. It will really help me get into the writing style that is best for this site. Thanks!

      DrBillSmithWriterposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Me, too. Thanks. I've been focusing on writing here, on all three accounts. The secret now, then, for sure, is to simply bring each transferred account up to a good read, regardless of length, and let other requirements fall into place. Thanks, again, for the neat comments!

    I have lots and lots of skulls. I used a lot of allposters links for illustration purposes.

    Also the flow on many of my former lenses was not so good. Once I edit things for hubpages I am much happier with the work.

    1. goatfury profile image90
      goatfuryposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      I'm looking at this as an opportunity to have 90+ extremely high quality hubs (at the end of a month's solid work, no less).  With opportunity comes exhaustion, but it's opportunity no less!

    DrBillSmithWriterposted 2 years ago

    I totally agree, Andrew! I'll have over 250, which is sort of amazing… but I do need to be proud of each one. And, I want to be creating new hubs in each of my story lines, each week, as well. What Fun!! ;-)
