Well, trying to get into the spirit of continuing to look for ways to promote my Hubs, to start doing more intensive keyword research, etc., I began thinking about Yahoo! Buzz and wondering why I have never used it as a place for announcing my Hubs. Time to change that!
I looked on the Yahoo! directory and couldn't find it, so I ran a search, wondering whether it had been discontinued. Wikipedia was the article I chose to read, and the information sounded just too good to be true. Buzz was designed as a place that would help to send traffic to specific articles, exactly what I needed!
At the end of the Wikipedia article - or at least at the point where I stopped reading - it said, On April 19, 2011, Yahoo! announced that Buzz would be discontinued as of April 21, 2011.
Of all things - a day late and a dollar short. good grief.
I was wondering what happened to Yahoo Buzz. I liked that service. I used it to promote many online articles other than mine. I preferred it for sports buzz ups mainly.
Yup, I realized Yahoo Buzz was dead when the button no longer appeared on my blogs.
I'd never used Yahoo Buzz, but thanks for letting us know.

I am still confused about the link rules. Is it okay to put a link to one of my hubs in Yahoo Buzz? People would be able to see the hub from there, so is that considered duplicate publication?

Is there any way to include Yahoo Buzz to the Share It section on each hub?

How long should you wait after you unpublish an article before republishing it on your blog or other website? I mean, so that Google doesn't see it as copied material?
