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.
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.
Congrats. With your excellent skills, this is really not surprising. Wish you more this 2015.
Good job, Greekgeek! I always enjoyed reading your work, and so glad others have indicated they do, too!
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I unpublished about 20 hubs that need more thoughtful revision, but I've done at least some edits to 118 hubs since Saturday.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.
That really is impressive, very well done, an amazing achievement.

I'm 100% on the side of doing a proper beta test and taking time to make sure every kind of lens transfers with ease - from the small simple ones to the big long complex ones - like mine! I'm less bothered by WHEN my...

I am still getting sales on my squidoo account even though my lenses have transferred over - they don't appear on hubpages - who pays out on sales in August and September? Thanks

I think I know something about writing articles. I created a new hub yesterday. HubPages took 24 hours before declaring, in one of their mystery messages, that it was of sufficient quality. You know what? It was too...
