I'm curious if Flipboard improves traffic to one's hubs, and whether it's worth opening an account with them. Or if the amount of work involved is not worth it.
Next, about the 140 character bios. Is there any way one can write a bio and put it universally on all one's hubs? Or at least, an area where one can see all the different bios one has written and where they are?
You can read your bios under 'about the author' on your account page or see the bios which you have created when you create a new hub near the copyright sign on the top right-hand side.
I think most people would agree that Flipboard is worth a try. I had a lot of traffic to my hubs when I first put them on but not so much since.
I think Flipboard is worth it. I tried it last week, and I got around 3000 views for one hub (over a couple of days)- now it has died down and I am just getting a couple, but it was less than 5 minutes of effort to set up and post one of my hubs.
Wow. Thank you. I will sign up immediately. I could do with 3000 views in one day. Don't think I've had that this time round.
Be sure to read Glenn Stok´s hub on how to use Flipboard. You are only going to get those kinds of numbers when a hub is already moved to a niche site, so it is not really worth your time to flip the others.
For those that are in niche sites and get moved to a Flipboard topic page, however, it is fun to see those numbers shoot up!
Why is that? Does Flipboard make a point of ignoring articles from hubpages?
Oops. Okay. I have to go back and delete. I'll have to click through my hubs to find which are in niche sites. Why don't HP mark which articles are on verticle sites?
They are marked you just have to click the drop down menu on your stats page. Select the site under filter.
On your profile page, they are marked too.
Yes - I have never ever got that many views in one day, and a very big increase from the 5 or so a day that hub was getting.
I think it might work better for some topics than others, but it definitely can work.

I don't get into these fights and disagreements with what HP does on a regular basis. But I looked at my Hubs and I only saw the four sites; Flipboard, Pinterest, Facebook and email in my share icons over the past week or so. What happened to G+ ?????This one doesn't make sense to me considering...

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more! (currently 16 visits per minute). Might be worth looking into as an alternative...

As a returning hubber I have many, many questions that I really don't want to keep bothering the forums with. I'd much rather read about it in a hub, however, my search questions usually take me outside HubPages. I'm hoping the community can help me out here, with these and other...

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?

When Eugbug first brought Flipboard to my attention, I felt like I didn't want to bother with it. Shortly thereafter, I signed up, and the first week or so it brought me around 20,000 views. Since then, views mostly have been minimal...BUT...once in awhile I get a nice little view bump...

OK, so I hear about Flipboard and see some saying they get some traffic from it, so I sign up. I make a magazine, and put two hubs in it. I have no idea if I'm doing it right, but one of those hubs has an increase of over 2,000 views within a few hours. I want more, whether that...
