So I got the email very late last night, about 11pm, that my lenses had imported to HP. 24 hrs later they are still displaying in Squidoo. I can click on them in Squidoo and they will go the a hub, but why are they still there? Does it normally take this long? Should I be concerned?
Janet, if your lenses are redirecting, they have transferred. You should be able to login to your hub account and update them there. They still have to show in your Squidoo account so that Squidoo can calculate tier payments and pay you for your sales.
Also, having them there is a handy way to go back and find things that got lost in the transfer (such as photo links that got stripped out).
Hi Janet1221! That's just the 301 URL redirects working as intended. The pages don't actually exist on Squidoo, but if someone has the URLs and tries to visit your pages, they will be redirected to HubPages, so that the Hubs don't lose any traffic.
The lenses are still on your squidoo dashboard. This is good news: it means that you can check the edit version of your lenses when you're not sure whether stuff was imported correctly or not. Or when you're fixing up all the not-imported image links - you can check what you had in the original. However, the published lens redirects to your new hub. So no worries.
My new hubs aren't showing up on my Hubpages dashboard. Does it take longer than 24 hours? (They are still on Squidoo, but I got the email yesterday morning)
Hi meucci24! Can you please clarify which email you received? Did you just create your HubPages account and receive the welcome email or did have you done that already and just received the import completed email? If you receive the import complete email, your Hubs should be available in your HubPages account. If they are not, then that sounds like a possible bug!

Just for a bit of background - I have been writing online for years, and literally have millions of words "out there". Only once did I have an AdSense account, and if I remember correctly, it was for a blog that is rarely used. It still appears, if I right-click on the blog, and view the...

I've just started going through the first lenses that got ported over as Hubs and here're a few things you can expect when you start reviewing your imported content.First of all, my lenses are still all showing on my Squidoo dashboard, so anything I might need if something is really wacky is still...

According to Paul Deeds' forum post, transfers of articles on Squidoo are beginning today. Has anyone had their account transferred yet? If so, how did it go?http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/123836? … ost2621573

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 -...
