      Don't count on it!  Things change here all of the time.  Not always in a good way, though.  smile

    I miss all the extra share buttons, like digg, stumble upon, reddit. THose buttons made it so easy to share hubs. Now you have to copy the link and to say stumble upon and submit it, instead of clicking just one button. Granted I'm lazy, but it saved time too! lol wink

      I agree but I don't care about those as much as the missing +1.  There is so much talke about serach engines (SEO) and getting traffic to sites and HubPages skipped adding the Google +1 to the "like"/share section when that metrics into the relevance calculation and search ranking.

      If you read the complaints about people losing traffic because of Panda and then don't consider that this simple optimization isn't in place its even more frusterating.

        You make a great point and I wonder if the loss of the google +1 made things much worse for a lot of folks after the penguin update. Maybe a lot of hubs got devalued by google because there was no more +1. If that's the case I know a lot of hubbers that will be mad as you know what lol

        I actually just noticed something. In the Q&A section, there is still a google +1... What's up with that? You can't +1 hubs, but you can +1 questions??? That makes no sense!!

          I also noticed that the +1 is missing - Google+ is a major source of traffics! You can still add but it's a bit more work with the cut and paste of the URLs... maybe HP is still tweaking the format?

          I wonder if the whole HP site has been devalued because there is no longer a google +1. It would make sense, google is our main source of traffic, and google +1 is popular in the google community. I wonder if the re-added the button if our traffic would improve.

      I miss those buttons, too.  I was getting some decent traffic from Stumble Upon.

        I think HubPages need to make a plan to bring back those buttons onto the new format. After all, isn't the point of writing Hubs and HubPages to get traffic to the site?

          Exactly! If readers don't have easy share buttons, I fear they won't be as likely to share our hubs...

            Daughter Of Maatposted 5 years ago in reply to this

            Indeed! It's a pain in the rear to go to stumble upon, and click share link (or whatever it says) and then copy and paste the link in. Really? People prefer convenience, and having to do all that work is certainly not convenient. It will inevitably lead to a loss in traffic for us writers and the whole site eventually.

            Come on HP, think about it...

    I was also getting traffic from Stumble Upon and I miss the Google +1 button. Some changes I like and others I don't like. I also miss the score at the top of the hub.

    1. Daughter Of Maat profile image99
      Daughter Of Maatposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Yes, I miss the score too.

        Not to sound like a broken record but... I agree! I hope HP hears our cries for easier share options and Hub scores!
