The A's on Hubs
The A's on Hubs
I have noticed that when I look at my accounts there are A's in gray on each title. This is in effect is a new status to my Hubs. It would seem every time I think I have a handle on managing the technology aspect of Hubbing everything changes. Not that it is necessarily a bad thing, just that it is difficult to keep up with all the changes on Hub pages in the last few months. We have changed domain names and we have added "interesting" as a rating and then there is the plus one feature which I think I accidentally plus oned myself just trying to see what it was. And now we have the gray A. Does it mean I have earned income from Amazon or is the Adsense active? I don't know because they both start with A and the "A" is rather gray.
I have to say writing on the internet is fun and exciting but it has its technical challenges that go along with it. I still haven't optimized for SEO or done many other marketing things I am suppose to be learning. No doubt the learning curve is steep on the hubpages but it is even steeper when the format is constantly under rendition but I can only surmise the managers of hubpages are trying to refine their product to make it easier for their authors and readers.
I have written several articles from my personal beginning on hubpages that might illuminate the path for your successful hubbing experience. The links are provided below.
And the A's have it!!
The A's are a notation used to let the author know there is not a summary on of their article/hub. Summaries are two to three sentences long and can be accessed in edit mode. The click the right hand side on summary and a grey box will appear down underneath. Write a two to three sentence summary and then click done editing. This information was provided by many great hubbers who were generous enough to share. You can also get specific instruction on your account page. At the bottom is a the A= Summary in grey. Click on it and you will be provided detailed instructions.
