    If you are transferring articles with link lists, change those links to the new URLs on HubPages.

    If you leave your link lists the way they are, an article's  link goes back to the article's location on Squidoo, goes through the 301 redirect, then back to HubPages.

    As you edit your transferred articles, don't forget to change the links in the link lists, too.  You need the PageRank to flow directly to the new URL locations on HP.

      Thanks Writer Fox for that tip. I wouldn't have even thought of that. You ROCK!

      We are planning to update links that go to lenses that were imported automatically when the import is complete.  So no need to do it manually, unless you just can't wait a couple of weeks.

        Thanks for the update.  I really appreciate the attention you are putting into the details of the transfer from Squidoo.

        That's great news. I notice you're already flagging broken links to Squidoo lenses smile I love the attention to detail here.

    I would add that if you have a list of links, you'll probably get a warning while you're editing the Hub that you have a lot of links in one place.   

    It's not because you're breaking any rules - a list of links IS allowed.  To be honest I'm not sure why the warning even exists, but whatever - you can choose to ignore it, you won't be penalised for it.

      Really? I've been deleting links all day because I do see warnings. I'll try to figure this out and change the links as WriterFox mentioned from here forward. Thanks, you guys!

        You get that warning about too many links in one place if you make a Table of Contents, too.  Just ignore it.

        It's annoying and I don't know why the warning even exists.  Just be sure that your links are all related to the topic of the Hub - they are very strict indeed about unrelated links.

        You know what?  I don't remember anything posted in the Learning Center which talks about how many links in a links list are too many.  It's a mystery.

    This is good news that the links don't need to be changed!

    Here's one other thing to consider. If anyone has lenses with links to other sections of the same lens (such as a table of contents), this will not transfer properly to a hub and needs to be edited to correct the links, in addition to the correcting the anchors. 

    There is another thread were we discussed table of content links and where I gave a complete explanation at http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/123778#post2626939
