100,000 visits since September on a transferred Squidoo account...

    My mythphile account just ticked over 100,000 visits today, despite my deleting quite a few hubs from it after it came over from Squidoo in September. I was not able to do much on the computer between October through December, so most of that traffic is from before I began revising them.

    I should be done with triage on that account by the end of today. Unfortunately, my other, smaller ex-Squidoo accounts still need more work, but I've taken care of the better-trafficked pages in those already.

    I still need to do a great deal more editing before I'm satisfied with the transferred pages. But the important thing is to rebuild all the content that didn't come over during the transfer (or which Squidoo glitches had mangled previously).

    All right, coffee break over. Back to editing.

      Congratulations, and well done on your hard work! Hopefully the edits on the smaller accounts will go more quickly.

    Which just goes to prove that quality original work will get traffic no matter where it is on the web. I wish that people would stop grousing in the forums and take an example from your work ethic. I am making as much here as at Squidoo and the team are definitely more approach able.

    I am glad you are still doing well.

    Whew! Thanks everyone.

    I wonder how many Squids are as wiped out as I am. No matter when the deadline was, we'd still manage to be working feverishly right up until the cutoff.

    I unpublished about 20 hubs that need more thoughtful revision, but I've done at least some edits to 118 hubs since Saturday. I didn't have time to rewrite much (although I did some); mostly I focused on replacing lost images, deleting Amazon Associates links, and stamping out red skulls tripped by said links.

    I haven't even started bailing out guestbook comments. I'm going to be brutal; if it's not useful to readers, I'm hiding it. I never allowed link drops in comments, but there's a lot of "nice lens" comments that make no sense to visitors even if they're a welcome ego-pat to me.

    It felt good pruning the deadwood.

      And, I'll bet you were exhausted!

          Congratulations,  your hub's are a cut above. You pick current interesting subjects, your writing skills are impeccable. I like how your photo's, looks as most are your own work. I so enjoy your hubs... Keep up the great work.
