If the URL to one of your hubs is too long, is there a way to get a shorter one?
The URL for one of my hubs is too long to link from another site, so I'm just wondering if there's a way I can shorten it? (And preferably still be able to use my referral tracker.)
Do let me know if and when you find it ... Because my Laptop was "fed" Malicious Software by some idiot out there ... and perhaps a shortened URL might help me open the forwarded URLs ...
no idea, i would suggest you go to http://hubpages.hubpages.com/ and click "ask a question" and see if hubpages can answer. Good Luck!
Yes. Every hub you create automatically has a short URL created for it. To find it, go the hub that you want the URL for. Click on the Stats button on the top of the hub. After that, Click on the "hub metrics" tab. The short URL for this particular hub should be displayed there.
Referral trackers are inserted after the .com just like you normally would on a standard URL.
Try to twit your hub url and you will have shorter version to post on twitter!
You can use this website This will do everything for you Just copy and paste tinyurl.com
Thanks everyone (and professionalhub in particular) - tinyurl.com did the trick.

Which hubs do you enjoy more - the longer or shorter ones? Or does it depend on the topic?Does the length of a hub affect whether you read it or not?

I am in the middle of drafting a hub but am finding it to be getting quite long with a lot I still want to include. Is there a recommended (or actual) maximum length that a hub can be and is there a precedent for dividing into multiple linked parts?Many thanks,Rob

I've read and reead the hubs on URLs, RSS & Backlinks. I thought I was fairly literate in computers, trust me, I'm stumped.Adding RSS - okay so I want to add an RSS capsule to my hub. I read that you can add your profile URL as an rss but it tells me NO! I don't understand backlinks...

what factors help you decide if a hub is too long? I know different styles of hubs based on topics and what not help determine how long it is going to be. I worry about what is to many words though.
