KeyLime Cove Community Days is a phenomenal value for Gurnee area residents. Experience the Lost Paradise indoor waterpark without a hotel stay for $25. This offer is available through June 7, 2013. 100% of funds raised from ticket sales benefit the United Way of Lake County and the Gurnee police and fire departments!

I took this survey to help out +Paul Maplesden and it only took 5 minutes or less. I think it's great how you can get feedback like this from other G+ members.
 
Please, share your expertise and feedback with me

Hi folks, just a reminder that I am currently seeking feedback from my fellow small business owners, freelancers and entrepreneurs on some business ideas that I am researching.

I would be very grateful for your views, I have created a survey explaining the ideas that will only take five minutes of your time. If you're interested, and want to help out a fellow community member, that would be great! You can access the survey here: http://bbpnts.com/11lXiCo

For the first time ever, you can ride Batman The Ride - backwards at #sixflags #greatamerica for a limited time, beginning in May when the  #themepark opens for the season.

Incredibly, daily admission tickets are only $20.13 on opening weekend! (I wonder if they'll be $20.14 next year?)

+G.A. Anderson I recently saw one of your camping recipe pics on the "popular" feed of Pinterest - very cool. I also saw Glimmer Twin Fan's peanut butter pound cake on the Pinterest "popular" feed.

There is a thread over at the HP forum going on about including MFP (made for Pinterest) images in Hubs as a way of getting Pinterest traffic.

I often try to make my photos/images on my Hubs or blog (especially the first one) appealing to Pinterest viewers.

Does anyone else do this? Has anyone had any Pinterest successes they would like to share?

LOL  It's kind of tough to turn a used, scarred picture of a bender into something "dramatic"!

Seriously, I've tried doing those kinds of thing; my pinterest site does indeed have a "dramatic" conduit picture for those hubs.  I think that the biggest problem is people "search" Pinterest for pretty pictures, not for information.  They might read if they come across it, but they don't, in general, search Pinterest for informational writing.

There are exceptions, of course.  Recipes do well; people want the recipe but are drawn in by a yummy picture.  I've got one out there that has been repinned quite a few times, about "rotten egg pie"; the picture and caption piques interest, I think.  Travel pics can do well.  Room remodeling with a pic of a "new" and unusual decor. 

But not, in general, such things as toilet repair or bending conduit.

A favicon is a simple, yet effective branding opportunity, and today on my G+ feed I couldn't help but notice that out of the first 15 links to blogs or websites, only 4 had favicons. Don't miss the opportunity to make your blog or website standout!

Do you know what percent of your traffic to HubPages is from a mobile device? I checked mine and for the last month 39% of my total traffic is from mobile devices. Overall, 15% of my traffic comes from iphones and 8% from ipads. (Data from Google Analytics)

I also noticed that time spent on page is much less for mobile device users, so it's got me thinking about what I can do in terms of formatting a Hub to appeal to a mobile user's user experience. Has anyone else given this thought? What percent of your traffic is from mobile devices?

Hi +Kristin Trapp You can see from my hubs it is a pretty quick fix. A bit of a pain I know, but it garners longer views if they can actually read the content. My bounce rate has gone way down now they can actually see the thing.
