Does anyone know what percentage of our Hubs have already been edited?

    It would be nice to know how this process is going.

      It would be good to know Sally. I do know that I have only had one hub edited by HubPro Basic out of around 250. We don't know what percentage of the hubs on the site they intend to edit though.

        Jodah,
        I have not had any hubs edited but having seen how many hubs are published across the site, that does not really come as any surprise, I was curious to know how the process was going:)

      We have edited just over 3000 Hubs accounting for 41% of search traffic, and we're still working hard to get to more Hubs.  Right now we are focusing on tattoo, piercing, and pet Hubs to be moved to the new niche sites.  smile

        Hi Robin,
        Thank you for your response, does that mean that editing will not continue until the new nice sites are moved?  Also, do you intend creating any other niche sites?
        Thanks
        Sally

          We are actively editing Hubs right now, but we are focused on tattoo, piercing, and pet Hubs that could move to the new domains.  There will be quite a few new sites in the next year.   smile

            Are only hubs that have been through HubPro moving to the new Pethelp page?

              A Hub doesn't need to be edited to be moved to one of the niche sites, although we are trying to at least Basic edit a lot of potential Hubs to give them an extra set of eyes for small mistakes.  smile

            Will you keep us updated on the next topics chosen for niche sites (And therefore editting) so we can take advantage of upcoming opportunities if one of the niche topics interests us?

              The next two sites will be Beauty and Food and Beverage.

        Robin,
        You state above that just over 3000 Hubs account for 41% of search traffic.  Does this mean that less than10,000 hubs will be involved in the editing process or will editing continue for the foreseeable future?  As I understood it, Editors are editing hubs which receive the most traffic, is this still the case?
        How many hubs are published across the site?

          Hopefully, with the move to niche sites, traffic will go up, and we will be editing more Hubs and can grow our team.  Editing is going to continue for the foreseeable future.  smile

            "Traffic will go up" on the new niche sites or will traffic encompass the main and niche sites?

              My point is that we hope to continue editing and that we will be focusing on Hubs moving to niche sites over the next year.  smile

              I think what Robin means is that the whole point of moving Hubs to a niche site is that in theory, articles on a niche site should be more attractive to Google than articles on a generalist site.  So traffic will go up for those Hubs that are moved.

              If that turns out not to be the case, the whole niche site exercise will be pointless and presumably will be abandoned.

            What is the time frame for the move?  What will happen with our accolades? I fear I will never reach the million mark with my best performing hubs moving elsewhere.

              This question should be asked in the other forum thread.  The topic of this thread is editing.  smile

                It won't let me post the question elsewhere - that is prohibited.

                  I don't understand.  Why can't you post the question in this relevant thread?
