Check for Violation: Needs a Summary

    I'd only recently found out about the summary feature on hubs a few weeks or months back. I have added summaries to a number of hubs and it seems to help their hubscore immediately and SERPs after about two weeks or so.

    Anyway, not all of my hubs have summaries and I don't really know, at this point, which have them and which don't. It would be awesome if like this could happen:

    Instead of the check for violation button (or as well as the violation button) there could be a button that you could click that tells you which hubs need some summaries (and idk... whatever other things you guys can think up.)

    I was thinking on similar lines yesterday while going through my hubs.. unless you click edit you cannot really know if there is a summary or not.. It would be wonderful to have a way of know that summaries need to be posted without having to edit a hub.

      Agree.

    Ditto.

    The process of checking them adds pageviews, and that can be exciting, but it also distorts the reality of the traffic we are (or I am) getting.

      LOL You and I are in a similar boat, about 60-some Hubs. Like you, I don't want to impact my Hub traffic (slim as it is) by clicking on my own stuff, but in a way, traffic's so pitiful it doesn't matter.

      Although, if you go to your Profile page, then click "More", you will see summaries attached to your Hubs. However, I don't know whether those summaries come from the ones we wrote specifically for our Hubs or whether they come from just an auto-extraction from a Hub's content. I'd have to spend way too much time (even for 67 Hubs) to figure that out, so I'm not going to.

        I think the 'more' thing shows the actual summary.  I also think it takes up to an hour to refresh.

        So if you changed slightly just one of them, and went away for a while, then you can come back and see if I am spinning a line.

        edit: I also hate visiting hubs to check them.  Because each visit of mine is a significant number when compared to my normal traffic.

          I know what you mean by the refresh. Being antsy at times, I've rewritten those summaries and didn't see them change in the nanosecond I expected. Also, sorry to say, they take even longer to show up as changed on other places on the net...like in a Google search.

          Amazing stuff, this.

    Now that I'm thinking about it, it may not be that editing our Hubs to find out whether we created summaries will generate a page view, if we go to "my account", find the Hub, and click "edit" instead of clicking the Hub title.

    Who knows?

      That would be awesome, if that were the case.  I may not have been as observant as I would like to be, but I have thought (maybe assumed is the better word) that this does add a pageview.  I would love for someone to let us know officially whether that is so.

        Sally's Troveposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        I would, too.

          I can tell you 'officially'.  It does.  That's because I do a lot of stat checking (every view is important) and I also do a fair amount of editing.  Whichever way I access my Hubs to edit it clicks up a view.  Bizarrely, sometimes the editing process seems to add more than one view - maybe as many as four or five.  I don't know if that's because I have been saving and then editing again, or doing things like adding a text box, changing summary, altering tags all add to the page view count.

          edit: Yeah, sorry.  Not really official of course.

            Well then, there's a challenge for HP. How can we writers access our own stuff without adding what are really false positives to our Hubs?

    Here is not the place to start something new, but I have wondered about opening a thread with a new "challenge" for those of us who are Great Hubbers (tongue-in-cheek, but only a little bit), but who don't get as much traffic or income as we would like.  Sort of like the 30-Day or 60-Day challenges, but more suited to those of us who feel intimidated, rather than inspired, by those challenges.  What do you all think?

    My idea is to share thoughts about what has worked for us individually - or not.  I know that different people have opened threads that say "What works for you?" and "What advice would you give to new Hubbers?" and "Share your tips" and such.  I'm thinking to make this a bit less open-ended; maybe have some form of signing up, some fixed period of time for participating and some consistent format for sharing ideas, that sort of thing.

    I guess it's sort of ironic to mention this in a thread that melbel started, since she's the most-visited Hubber.  Oh well.

    1. Mark Ewbie profile image86

      I think that's an interesting idea.  For me, sharing lack of success at least makes me feel I'm not the only one.  And the only way I learn is through chat, rather than studying.  I don't get on with studying.

      I think it's an interesting idea, too, but you won't know what kind of response there is unless you throw it out there.

      Like Mark, I tend to rely on others sharing their experiences rather than making an academic study of something. (That didn't used to be, but it is, mostly now.)

      So, take the plunge and start a new thread. I'll be following.

    I need a name for the challenge! big_smile  My initial ideas are exceptionally lame:  Mid-Level Hubbers' Challenge; Modestly Successful Hubbers' Challenge; Hubba-Hubba-Hubbers' Support Group. You get the idea - there are more names, but they are no better than these!  Do any of you have any suggestions?  I have bunches of ideas for kicking it off, but I would like to have the best possible name for it from the outset.  Help?

      Why not start a thread asking exactly those questions? Because, as you said earlier, this thread is not the place to showcase your good idea. smile

    You guys asked for it, so here it is! Hubs with missing summaries now have an "A" icon next to them in your Hub Statistics page.
