Url List export

    Perhaps this is to specialized for serious consideration or maybe there is a faster way that someone can enlighten me on.

    I would love to be able to press a button and be able to export a text or .csv file of all my profile urls.

    This would help me greatly in my own personal marketing management system

    BUT ..such a feature would help everyone and may even spur more off site bookmarking and promotion by hub users.

    Ive already done the footwork on my main profile and have a master list of hub URL's but it would be such an awesome time saver to have this feature in the future.

    or maybe there already is way that is easier than copying each link from the my hubs page?

    This is a good idea.  I'd like to see it happen from our hub groups. Being able to export all the url's from a group would save a lot of time and unnecessary clicks on our own hubs.

    This would be nice.  Occasionally I'll want to make a change to my Hubs and want to keep track of which ones I've fixed and which I haven't.  It would be nice to be able to export a list so I could tick them off as I did them.

    Some examples are when we thought we'd lost eBay (glad I didn't get around to removing the capsules), or when I learned about News capsules and wanted to add one to each of my Hubs.

    Right now, I often print off the Statistics page and do that, but being able to plug the titles or URLs into a spreadsheet would be even better.

    My word processing program preserves URLs/links when I copy and paste, so all I had to do was copy my dashboard and I had what was essentially a list of all my titles with live URL links.

    Plus, my AdSense channel report exports as a CSV and one column is nothing but Hub URLs.

    So I have a choice of two ways to get that info.

      Sometimes the bleeding obvious is staring me in the face...thanks Relache.

      Yep...that will work perfect! I was hoping an easy way to exist.

      When  I create the adsense channel, i also place the  URL in a spreadsheet..it was playing catch up with old hubs that took my time...just copying the stats page would have been great to think of 3 months ago (when i first bothered to create channels for each hub)

      Maybe your process will help someone else someday..thanks!

    well the stats page copy isnt working out as i hoped

    just pasting to text file brings the jumbled stats with the links which would have to be hand deleted

    pasting into an email(or any program that recognizes tables) allows me to quickly delete out the stats (they are in tables) but I also have to hand delete all the little red arrows smile

    and after all that (35 sec) I have a very clean list of hyperlinks

    but, i dont want a list of hyperlinks, i wanted a list of the actual urls (which i already I have)



    I could lift the list from the page source with a few firefox tools or design software...I was just looking for a one click solution just like adsense offers for the benefit of others mostly

    YO!!!!!

    Guess what feature hubpages just implemented!

    export .csv is now available in the hub stats page!

    Hubs implemented a hub template option not longer after we requested it...I wonder if our thoughts do encourage them?

    I love this. I've been wishing such a feature and here it is for us lazy hubbers who didn't already have a list.

    Bleeding Nora!  This is far beyond my comprehension.  I look forward to the day that I will actually understand what this is all about! hehehe

    How do you get it to look like yours does sun? I can save it to the comp but it looks like jibberish.

      You load it into Excel where you can adjust the width of the columns.

    I actually use open office, the free MS office alternative, not because I dont have ms office, but rather because openoffice works faster...it uses far less system requirements

    the screenshot is exactly how it appeared when i opened the csv

    Thanks Sunforged. I'm downloading now as I did not have excel only word spreadsheet and it didn't convert it. I can see where this will be real handy tool for linking etc.
