Has anyone found an article puslished about the new page templet?
Yes I just saw it on the blog..hang on I'll find the link.
Sounds like your wheels are turning, Angela. I think you should write one.......
I was so used to the old ways I miss them. Well onto the new. Something else to get used to. lol
I miss all the extra share buttons, like digg, stumble upon, reddit. THose buttons made it so easy to share hubs. Now you have to copy the link and to say stumble upon and submit it, instead of clicking just one button. Granted I'm lazy, but it saved time too!
I agree but I don't care about those as much as the missing +1. There is so much talke about serach engines (SEO) and getting traffic to sites and HubPages skipped adding the Google +1 to the "like"/share section when that metrics into the relevance calculation and search ranking.
If you read the complaints about people losing traffic because of Panda and then don't consider that this simple optimization isn't in place its even more frusterating.
You make a great point and I wonder if the loss of the google +1 made things much worse for a lot of folks after the penguin update. Maybe a lot of hubs got devalued by google because there was no more +1. If that's the case I know a lot of hubbers that will be mad as you know what lol
I actually just noticed something. In the Q&A section, there is still a google +1... What's up with that? You can't +1 hubs, but you can +1 questions??? That makes no sense!!
I also noticed that the +1 is missing - Google+ is a major source of traffics! You can still add but it's a bit more work with the cut and paste of the URLs... maybe HP is still tweaking the format?
I wonder if the whole HP site has been devalued because there is no longer a google +1. It would make sense, google is our main source of traffic, and google +1 is popular in the google community. I wonder if the re-added the button if our traffic would improve.
I miss those buttons, too. I was getting some decent traffic from Stumble Upon.
I think HubPages need to make a plan to bring back those buttons onto the new format. After all, isn't the point of writing Hubs and HubPages to get traffic to the site?
Exactly! If readers don't have easy share buttons, I fear they won't be as likely to share our hubs...
Indeed! It's a pain in the rear to go to stumble upon, and click share link (or whatever it says) and then copy and paste the link in. Really? People prefer convenience, and having to do all that work is certainly not convenient. It will inevitably lead to a loss in traffic for us writers and the whole site eventually.
Come on HP, think about it...
I was also getting traffic from Stumble Upon and I miss the Google +1 button. Some changes I like and others I don't like. I also miss the score at the top of the hub.

I find Stumbleupon great for boosting traffic but am nor sure how to add the HubPages tracker in my URL. - Any ideas?

One of my hubs recently got a small flurry of hits from stumbleupon.com. Can someone tell me how and why that occurred on that hub -- and not on any other? Are you supposed to be signed up such groups to draw their readers?

The share buttons (FB, Pinterest, Twitter, etc) are seen missing from my hubs. Why? Can anyone help me please?

I can't find Digg or Stumble anymore on the list of sites to share with. How come?
by jellygator 3 years ago
I've been disenchanted with some things here lately, particularly since my traffic went from over a thousand hits a day to about 1/3 of that. Today, I did more than just check in on my stats and actually checked out a hub and noticed how spammy the page looked. Worse, I wanted to share the hub I...

New superb share buttons replaces the old share buttons. These include share buttons of facebook, google plus, twitter, pinterest and hubpages.
