What does the faint letter A mean on my accounts page?

    ajcorposted 6 years ago

    At the end of each of headers for my hub topic/s on my account page there is a faint (er) letter A....what does this mean - have not seen this before?

    cheers and thanks to anyone who can answer this...

      This is a new feature, if you scroll down the bottom of your hubs you will see that it represents each of your hubs that do not have the summary section of the hub filled out (other than the default setting)

          ajcor,

          My pleasure - The summary has always been there, but now we have an opportunity to rewrite and improve them. Just don't do ALL of them in one sitting!!! smile

            regarding not doing them all at once is that for reasons of writer's cramp or traffic/seo?
            thanks in advance..

        Hi Kangaroo_Jase Your answer to ajcor helped me because I had the same query.
        I had this problem after editing my summary...
        Yesterday I published a hub... and realized only then that I haven't been filling the summary section for all my 16 hubs this far...
        So I went and added a catchy summary...and republished it...but sadly only my generic first para kept appearing when my HUB appeared on the hubpages home page. I know I lost all the traffic because of the old summary which never gave any gist of my hub :-(.
        I am going straight to the learning centre to master all the tips before I publish another hub.

          G'Day Rembrandz,
          The Learning Centre is a great resource to quickly and thoroughly gain a good understanding of the use and benefits of this site.

          You can also search through existing forums to answer most questions. It is rare that an answer for a subject will not be here.

          But Hubpages is going through some extensive changes and sometimes it is best to ask a question, plenty of Hubbers here to help.

    I thought it was the ghost of Hester Prynne haunting my account (maybe because I didn't always do my English homework?)

        big_smile   (I just hope Captain Ahab's ghost doesn't make its way into my account somehow.   Now THAT would be some havoc because his ghost would be even more unhappy than old Hester's would be.  smile  Well, let's put it this way:  If the ghosts of any number of characters from books start haunting the HubPages stats page of people who didn't do their English homework, I'm out of here - because if there's anyone they'd be after I'd be the first target.  lol) )

    I seem to be haunted too - the old summaries have all vanished - going to be a lot of work to get them up to speed. Oh, well.
