As a source of Hub traffic, what's your experience of traffic?
In recent days I've been taking a look at Twitter Analytics (Duh... I never noticed the menu item for it before!). Anyway I've noticed that the click through rate is extremely low, but I also discovered that potential readers seem to get confused and click on hash tags instead of the intended link. I wish there was some way of highlighting links or alternatively an option during composition of a tweet to hyperlink the attached photo.
Most twitter users are quite familiar with how it works, maybe you just use interesting looking hashtags?
I think click through is good if you have engaged followers and it matches their interests. 'Follow back' and promotional handles, not so much.
Personally I find Twitter incredibly useful and I get more traffic from Twitter than I do from any other social network. However, the majority of my traffic does come from Google (i.e. SEO) and from within Hubpages.
I seem to get lots of impressions. But as for link clicks, forget it. And many of those titles are downright provocative, but still nary a click to be found.
I use Twitter here some, but mostly on my blog. I also use it via Hootsuite which allows me to schedule Tweets in advance. I do get quite a few views and from those views the stats show some are clicking on my Google Adsense ads.
I bought a book on Twitter and I think to make your followers happy you need to be consistent with your posts. I think a daily update would be good but I haven't been that ambitious yet.

I noticed tonight that the Flipboard share button is missing on all hubs. I checked a few niche sites and they are all missing. It doesn't matter if you're logged in or not. In addition, the problem I reported a few weeks ago with Pinterest banning ToughNickel is still not fixed.

My Twitter account is @JohnnyF89 Thought I'd ask because I've noticed many published hubs that recommend the use of Twitter to help you with Hubpages.

I keep an eye on my stats daily. I noticed a sharp decline in my earnings for yesterday, April 10th. I know it is wrong. Has anyone else been affected by this yesterday? Who do I need to speak with about this? Thanks.

Jeez, I check my stats this morning and it's a disaster. I run to Quantcast and discover it's all of HubPages and not just me. What the heck is going on? I even rushed to a calendar website to see if there was something special about May 1; there wasn't. I checked the news for anything that could...
