When we publish a Hub, we are given two URLs - a regular one, and a short one.
I have just set up a twitter account for promoting my website and my Hubs. How can I find out what the short URL is for my Hubs so that I can use it on my twitter feed? Is this even possible?
I'd just click the share button and let Twitter automatically use the long URL. However, you can find the short URL at stats|overview when viewing each hub.
When signed in, go to the hub. (Not in edit, just the normal hub.) Then click on 'Stats' in the black line at the top.
In the 'Overview' section, you'll see 'Views' and 'Metrics'. Beneath the Metrics heading you'll find the short url for that hub.
I don't know about using it on your twitter feed though, but I guess you could. You'll have to wait for someone else to say for sure.
You can also use any number of URL shorteners on the internet. Just Google it and you'll find at least a couple options.
Or if you're using Hootsuite they have one built in.

I have checked a few of my articles over the course of a week, not all of them but most of the popular ones, and I noticed that when I put them in Google search they only show up through another link such as Pinterest or Twitter. They seem to have totally disappeared apart from that. Any help you...

It recently came to my attention that some of my hubs can't be found or won't open through e-mail and a blurb comes up saying 'Sorry that hub does not exist'. In my case I have 12 such hubs. Somehow these hubs ended up with a hyphen or an underscore trailing their names. After contacting Hub pages...

I wasn't quite sure where to post this. I haven't seen anything about this on the forums so hopefully I'm not asking something blatantly stupid. If so, Sorry.Anyway, do any of you ever create new hubs just to reserve the URL for future development? Sort of like regular domaining with .coms Is it...

I am trying to get some back links going, but I tend to use long titles for my hubs, which translates to long URLs. Isn't there a short-version URL for each hub? I'm pretty sure I've seen those when I've been in the process of publishing, but now I can't find them.Any help will be...
