Hubpages has set up a new help forum for Squidoo members making the transition to HP.
As expected, HP is transferring accounts a bit at a time, with early opt-ins getting early transfers.
Relache reports on how her lenses looked after import and what happened to modules that work rather differently on HP.
Still waiting for your lenses to transfer? Here’s what I’m doing.
- One final Traffic Stats compilation. My weekly traffic for all my Squidoo accounts dropped below 9000 this week. Partly because I deleted over a hundred of lenses (Squidoo-related tutorials and community lenses, lensographies, and some product review niches that I’m moving to my own site), but that’s still sad for 259 pages.
- KEYWORD DATA DEEP DIVE. Last chance! Whatever else one can say for it, Squidoo gave us good data on keywords tucked away in the depths of the dashboard. Really tucked away, since they hid the 90 day data.
You can get it by creating a random bookmark (be sure to add it to your browser toolbar), then editing the bookmark in your browser’s bookmark editor and changing the URL to the following mini script (scroll right in the code box below to make sure you copy all of it):
Click that bookmarklet while you’re logged into Squidoo, and it’ll ask for a lens URL — just the stuff after http://www.squidoo.com/ — and then it takes you to the 90-day traffic pane for that lens. Be sure to click the “see more” toggle at the bottom of the keywords list to grab ‘em all. Save ‘em to a text document with all the keywords for one niche, and they may give you some ideas about the sorts of things your primary audience is looking for.
I’m trying to collect the keyword data for my favorite niches and top hubs. That’s not something HP is going to preserve.
