Just an observation I wanted to share as I keep working my way through my ~220 transferred lenses:
If you made a lot of lenslets on Squidoo (at least the product review ones), you should have the least amount of work, if any, to fix them up post transfer. All of my lenslets that imported kept their text formatting within capsules including paragraph breaks, bolding and italics, etc. This is NOT the case for my regular lenses where I'm having to re-add in all such text formatting which seem to have gone missing.
Any lenslets I created and included photo galleries? Are intact. Photo galleries on regular lenses? Largely missing.
Obviously too lenslets were limited in module types so you don't have sidebar modules to worry about, rss feeds and other modules no longer supported.
Anyway, just thought I'd mention that as a heads up. If I was the conspiracy type it might even lead me to wonder if Squidoo didn't introduce and keep pushing the lenslet formats when they did in anticipation of some eventual sale/transfer of content....
This is good to hear, at least as it pertains to the review templates. I was wondering if they were going to come through as one long text capsule without the photo galleries. Thanks for your update!
Thanks, that is a lot of help, because I think I mainly did lenslets. I'm not sure because I didn't spend a lot of time on Squidoo and only had about 11 lenses; but what I understand is a lenslet are the specially formatted lenses, like the how-to ones and the movie reviews and tv reviews; I did mostly those. I was wondering how they'd up after transfer.
Good to know. A lot of my pages are older. When they come over, I am sure I will need to do a lot of editing.
Man, that's great news. I probably have 30 or 40 product lenses, and maybe even more. I am still waiting for my first lens to transfer, though.
This is a bit of a worry, as most of my lenses are the longer type, with very few lenslets. None of my articles have transferred over yet, so I'll just have to wait and see what happens they they finally get here. (Yes, I'm getting antsy, as I pushed the green button the day it went up).

Before the transfer I regularly saw at least 1-2, sometimes 5-6, Amazon sales from my top lenses daily. These were the first lenses I fixed up to bring to HubPages standards after the transfer and traffic-wise they are generally doing as well if not better than before.However, I have not seen a...

I'm not knocking anybody (or maybe I am) but I have seen several "Hubs" that transferred from Squidoo that are composed of nothing more than very thin content and a whole bunch of merchandising links (and even one lady who pimped her own Etsy page multiple times in her "Hub")....

I'm 100% on the side of doing a proper beta test and taking time to make sure every kind of lens transfers with ease - from the small simple ones to the big long complex ones - like mine! I'm less bothered by WHEN my lenses transfer to HubPages than I am about WHETHER they all transfer intact -...

I finally made it over here. I have numerous hubs in violation as they were previously product lenses at Squidoo. How is everyone else handling it? Anyone know how many Amazon products we can have on a single Hub?

This drop in traffic seems to have affected the majority of us who transitioned here from Squidoo. After we updated our articles are traffic virtually stopped dead. The question is why? Was our redirect from Squidoo killed with the update? What the heck happened? Please try to figure out why the...
