Resolved: Sharing Hubs

    I'll take internal traffic any day as long as it counts toward the HP ad program, but yeah, search engine traffic is where it's at.

    I don't really pay attention to PR, though. I just do keyword research and write hubs, really. I don't think PR really does anything these days.

      Well, does anyone know if Hub traffic rises. I have seen no improvement in my money since my hp traffic increased.

    I don't share.  I keep my feed clean because this is how I choose to find Hubs to read.  It is irritating to have the same Hub shared and shared on my feed over and over again.  Even the HOTD is shared on the same day it is presented.  Why would I want to know who shares my Hub?  Other than, "The next time I see the name, I'll share, too, because one good turn deserves another?"  If that's what you're after, forget it.  Why would I want to do that and torture my followers with the same Hub?  They've probably read the Hub already.  Also, I want to read fresh work--not reruns.  I follow 13 people for their excellent writing, and their work is enough to keep me busy.

      He's referring to Social Network sharing mostly, not internal sharing.

    Social Networking?  I got rid of my Facebook account last Christmas.  Can't accuse me of sharing there!

      I think he means the "3 Facebook Likes" etc that appear beside the buttons. He wants to know who shared them. Which obviously isn't really workable lol

    LOL!  Which is why I'm not "getting" this.  LMAO!  I don't miss Facebook, and one of the reasons why was the "like/don't like" buttons.  I don't care to know, and it's a waste of time to find out.  People will tell me that they plan on sharing my article, and whether they do or not is good enough for me.

      Well with 10,000 plus likes on some of my hubs I don't really care who they are as long as they keep clicking it!

    Not too long ago, there were a couple of Einsteins who plugged sharing Hubs and went as far to say, "Thank you for sharing."  So all these Hubbers got on the bandwagon.  It was share button abuse, if you ask me.  It seemed like every other Hub on my feed at that time was shared.  I come from a newspaper background, and people either found your work or they didn't.  So the idea of multiple sharing got on my nerves from the very beginning.  If sharing is your thing--do it.  But if I find patterns of someone who does nothing but share or cliques that promote their group members, I "X" the individuals with many priors.  This is the only remnant of Facebook that I believe in, and HubPages offers this.

    Coming into this a little late, but it looks like it has resolved itself.

    Thanks for the suggestion, The Engineer, but as several people pointed out, it's simply not technically possible to tell you who exactly shared. Besides, if most of the readers are coming to your Hubs from organic search, then share your Hub, they are not signed in to HubPages, so we don't who they are anyway.

    Marking this as 'resolved.'
