I have two former Squidoo lenses that are basically long lists of links to craft projects:
Recycled Christmas Crafts - http://lisavollrath.hubpages.com/hub/re … mas-crafts
Recycled Magazine Crafts - http://lisavollrath.hubpages.com/hub/cr … zine-ideas
I haven't edited either yet. They both have dreaded red skulls, so I want to edit them soon, to remove the violations (more than two links to some sites), and to turn them into something that looks less like a lens, and more like a hub.
Both are getting good traffic here, as they did on Squidoo. Both have hub scores that are strong, and rising.
Before I hit the edit button, I could use some thoughts. Should I continue to present this content as lists of links? Add some short how-to content in between lists? Toss them, because they don't really fit the long content hub format?
I expected to find a very long list of links but I see an intro and you've divided them into categories which I think looks good. Maybe add a little more to each intro section about why these ones are especially worth visiting. I'm new here too so that is the extent of my advice.
You can present lists of links if that fits the nature of the article. You may get a 'warning' box suggesting to spread the links out but ignoring it has no consequences. I have many hubs that are compendiums of links to various resources and they do very well.

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in the questions and forums and didn't see anything. I am not a former Squidoo person...

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 submitted a hub about the difference between assertive and aggressive women called "She's such a Bitch: So Why Does He Love Her?" and I can't figure out exactly what's blocking it from publication.The bots flagged it as possibly containing inappropriate content, and sent it for a...

Hey all....Is it worth it (traffic wise/ income wise) to put links to major sites in hubs? Like if you said, I read this article in Vouge (and made the word vouge a link), would that reap any benefits?Also....how would I make a word a link in a hub posting?Thanks much!Kayla
