How and when will Squidoo lenses be transferred to HubPages?
I've just today finished updating and saving all my Squidoo lenses, deleting ones which I don't think are suitable for HubPages (nearly killed me as I injured my back 10 days ago and pain veers from agony to tolerable - can't sit or even lie down comfortably). I have set up my HP account about 3 or 4 days ago by clicking on the big green button provided on Squidoo Dashboard.
None of my hubs show up yet, so my account shows 0 hubs. Do I need to do anything more to activate them, or do I just sit tight and wait? How long will I need to wait? I feel a bit nervous.
Sit and wait. The transfers won't begin until August 25th.
You might use this time to create a few new hubs, to learn how the HubPages tools work. I've been creating one a day, just to become proficient, so that when my lenses arrive, I can edit them quickly.
An update this morning pushed the transfer start date back to September 2nd. You might want to start following the forum threads here on HubPages to keep abreast of changes.
Thanks, so basically I've bust a gut to update all my lenses by 22nd August, which I thought to be the deadline, all in vain. I need not have stayed up half the night beavering away! Still, it's all done now, everything updated as much as possible
I agree with what Lisavollrath says and have done the same, adding that it is also a good time to start building your Hubpages network, which I see you have already done.

I cannot believe the amount of lenses from Squidoo, strictly about Squidoo are not only on Hub Pages, but they are found at the bottom of other hubs under Related Hubs.

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? …...

Several of my transferred Squidoo lenses are listed as unpublished but there is no indication on the lenses that anything is wrong, no violations, nothing missing, so what am I supposed to do?

I've spent the last 2 hours working on Squidoo lenses. I can't believe how hard it is to love one. I like to nurture my hubs, I want them to look beautiful. But I want to publish and run away from a lens as quickly as...

I just checked a few of my former lenses, and it seems like 301 redirects from Squidoo don't work anymore.Does anyone know anything about this? I used to have some social media traffic, mostly from Pinterest and...
