What will happen to our articles about HP directed primarily to hubbers? They certainly won't fit into any niche sites. I have two and don't know if they are worth editing anymore. They are outdated in terms of the purpose of HP which is now to build niche sites. I guess it depends on the hub but most of the articles under HubPages Tutorials like "Help for New Hubbers" or "Getting Traffic to Your Hubs" or "Spreading Hub Love " may no longer be relevant. Will those hubs just die off? It's not like you can take them anywhere else like your own site or blog.
Hubpages as we've known it will still be here. Just update your hub to include the information about niche sites. I don't see a problem with keeping them here.
Thought about that where appropriate, Barbara. Good idea, thanks.
I used to have some hubs like you mentioned, but HP kept making them obsolete every six months; so I finally gave up.
If you're going to keep and update them, I'd make it your lowest priority after you've done all your other hubs. In other words, go where the money is.
Yes, that is my understanding too, that HubPages will still be as it is, except for those hubs fitting into a niche site, will be moved so-to-speak. However, what I like is that those that are moved still show up on our HubPages profile page with all of our other hubs. So, it's like those hubs are allowed to be on two sites without having to be considered duplicate, I guess.
I have quite a bit of "Spreading Hub Love" hubs and I keep them all published and just tweak them over time. The only reason I have had to unpublish some is due to the particular hubber no longer being active on HubPages and so some of their links were unpublished, and instead of having to rewrite the hub and search for featured hubs, I just unpublished the hub, but do not delete.
I have several of those types of articles, and a few I have already deleted. They weren't getting a lot of traffic, and I wrote a few of them as a kind of joke...back when there were a lot more people on here, and they were a lot more involved. Anyway, time has passed, and it felt like it was time for them to go. I saved a few others, mostly because they make me laugh. I guess that isn't a great reason, but for now, they stay.

Almost without fail, when a hub of mine is moved to a niche site, the views increase. I suppose this makes sense; HP created the niche sites to escape from that "content-farm" label that Google had put them...

I have been looking at the traffic on my 35 hubs and the ones at the top of the list are almost all on the network sites. Those are the ones getting the most views, and I would expect that those are the ones that are...

I already have a number of hubs moved to the Hubpages network sites, but haven't really seen a drastic traffic change in said hubs. So, is it worth the risk to submit one of my hubs that already receives a decent amount...

3 weeks in and a few hubs created, can you help me to get the most from hubpages and give back to other members too. What do you wish you knew when you started out?

I noticed that hubs in niche sites no longer include the "More by this author" section below the hub. Is this just an oversight or was it a decision to drop it on 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...
