I have had a couple of hubs HubPro'd and for some reason they have snipped the Amazon adverts! Have I missed something? are we not allowed to use Amazon or ebay anymore? thanks
I had an article "snipped' by HP just before they moved it to a niche site. All that was done was to remove the Amazon capsule. I just hope the ads they run on the page relate to the product I reviewed so I can make some money.
Thanks Shauna, not sure if they are moving mine or not, it just seemed as though they are snipping the Amazon ads, strange!
Yep, the HP slaughter of Amazon capsules continues....
If you put one or two back that relate directly to the subject at hand, HP might let the hub live.
I had a hub moved to a niche and all is as I published it except for the Amazon ad - someone (id ten t) removed the baking dish ad that is crucial to making the recipe.
I do believe you can ask Robin to have the relevant ads reinstalled and she may approve. I read a comment by someone who had his ads approved to go back in the hub after it was niched.
You are still allowed to add products, but the rules are stricter for niche sites. The product must relate directly to the Hub's title (not just be about the same general topic), and you must demonstrate personal experience. Why does your reader need this item in order to carry out the instructions in the Hub and/or why does it make it easier? Why do you personally recommend that particular brand or style of product? How do you use yours? (You should never add a product you display no personal experience with in the Hub.)
I just had a hub moved to a new niche site, and almost everything in the hub was snipped! Photos, capsules, video. It's totally destroyed! Ther is only one photo and one paragraph left! This is so weird.
Bit annoyed to be honest with the latest re do! my hub Life before Life - where were you before you were born? was changed to Life before we before you were born! makes no sense! had to change it back!!
I've had about 10 hubs snipped, but only one is on a niche site right now. They haven't changed any of my writing, and I took many Amazon hubs off my work along the way, since HP doesn't seem to want them and I never made money on them anyway. It seems like they are going in order, from the highest viewed hubs downward.
I wrote a lot of hubs in groups, and have concerns that some hubs within a group won't be moved, and they won't make sense as a whole unit. That remains to be seen. But so far I'm happy, nothing big was changed.
Also, I see a category for Alternative & Supernatural Beliefs, and although I write a lot about Astrology, they have snipped Tarot hubs too. And Alternative as opposed to what? I also have Buddhism, Reincarnation, and other metaphysical subjects. Again, I guess I have to wait to see.
Actually to be fair they have put some of mine in new niches so thats okay

Just curious: How many hubs do you you currently have online right now and how many of them have already been moved to the niche sites?

I'm very happy with the results of the niche sites. It's a win-win for HubPages and writers like myself. But I'm a bit curious about the process for choosing Hubs that go on those sites.One of my most successful Hubs on...

I've been feverishly updating my old Hubs, not so much on this account but on my big niche account, in hopes that they will be noticed and moved to a niche site. But, it appears this process has come to a dead stop. It...

My Hub "Creatures of the Past" is being considered for a niche site. I need to fix my Amazon capsule. I have the dinosaur chart but did not make comment on it. Also they say the title needs...

I saw a big improvement in the payout I made today, because of the hubs that were moved to niche sites. But when I check the stats of those hubs, what I see is different. They get a big spike in views the first day or...

I have had a few hubs moved to various niche sites with hub scores ranging from 69 to 87. I feel I have much better hubs remaining on the original site than some of those selected to move, especially my latest which was...
