    We just deployed another update to the site.   There weren't any major changes this time, but there are a couple of nice new features:

    bookmark hubs - Thanks to Fawntia, in the sidebar there is now a link you can use to bookmark hubs that you just don't want to forget.  You can place the hub bookmarks into folders, and you can view or reorganize the bookmarks from your my account page.   When lots of bookmarks have accumulated there may be some interesting things we can do with the data on what has been bookmarked.

    broken video and rss feed checker - Following up on the success of Larry's broken link checker, he's now added to it the ability to check for videos that no longer work and broken rss feeds.  It will take some time for us to get through all the existing hubs, so be sure to check back on your broken links every few days.

    view duration -- We've also added view duration on a five point scale to the hub metrics (click on STATS from the top of your hub).  You can get this data from Google Analytics for all of your hubs already, but we thought it would be nice to be able to see a quick snapshot of the data without leaving HubPages.

    You may also notice that we are experimenting with a new ad location above the title of the hub (instead of the smaller ad below the title).   This change is only in our share of the impressions, it will not affect the author's share whatsoever.  If the results of the test are favorable we'll consider making the change across all hubs.

    As usual, please let us know if you have you run into any problems ...

      I love it that now we can bookmark Hubs because before when I didn't have time to read a Hub, I had to write it down to come back to it later. This saves time. Great job!

    I like the additions. Just spent 2 hours checking and fixing my broken video links. Did not realize I had that many. But all fixed now.

    Thanks for all the new features. I was surprised to see that I had broken links on five videos. They're all replaced now. I had been keeping the many hubs I couldn't read right away on my email account, but the bookmark sounds a lot more efficient. The view duration feature will be very helpful.
