For hubbers who use Pinterest, there was an interesting change that I noticed this morning. Any pins from HubPages now have their new format which (I think) makes a pin standout more and even adds a bit more status. The HubPages "H" logo is also prominently displayed now. If you are a recipe writer, ingredients may be included and then take you to the hub. Check it out with your hub pins. I really like this change and think it could lead to more repins.
Thanks for that news.
Just yesterday I reclassified a bunch of my hubs to group more of them under similar topic groups ... and today my stats are suffering. I'm hoping it has not upset the links from pins or google. Anyone have any idea about this? Have I just shot myself in the foot?
BTW, thanks to the hp staff who presumably have made an effort to gain recognition for hubs.
Wow! You are right. Looks like HubPages and Pinterest are now mutually beneficial friends.
Went to my Pinterest feed. Other folks' icons are showing up as well. All of them reputable websites.

I chose to not have my stuff pinned on Pinterest, so I do not know the answer to my question. I am just curious. Do you feel that Pinterest, with recipes, images, and other pins, diverts traffic from your hubs?...
