I'm posting in the Improving your Hub Category as I want to post a link to one of my hubs. This hub in question was Hub Pro Edited during the first wave whenever that was (a year or so ago, maybe).
Anyway, what I've done is got rid of amazon capsules and replaced them with text based links in the text instead. That's something that was done on one of my hubs before it was moved over and it's doing really well on the niche site now.
Another hub that is on the niche site is now showing on the Google Knowledge Graph - a table I created is the first thing you see when you search for the search term. The knowledge graph is the preview you see when you search for terms beginning with "how to" for instance - for those of you who don't know about it yet. That's getting me good traffic.
So, to mimic the requirements getting on the knowledge graph I googled popular search terms of my other hub: How to water tomato plants: http://hubpages.com/living/How-to-water … -right-way and implemented lists, both numbered and bullet lists as required. This would not just help the reader, but also increase my chances of being shown up there. Since the hub already ranks well for plenty of terms.
If you've got a hub on a niche site, you may want to edit it and add some lists where helpful, since these are niche sites, there's a good chance of getting on the knowledge graph.
P.S: If any of you have feedback on what else I could do to improve this hub, please do let me know I'm going to be following this on the other hubs I have as well, as time permits. Good thing I don't have many.
Are you using your own amazon id or HP's id for the text links?
I think this is useful info about the graphs and table
When you chose to place a link, you have a few options:
- Custom URL
- A hub
- Amazon: This is what I chose, it alternates at the regular 60:40. I only recently found out about this from Robin when I wondered what they did to my Amazon capsules hehe.

CNN just moved a story that Google announced yet another 'improvement' to searches. Knowledge Graph is supposed to think like a human and give you choices if you type in a word that can have several references.

Since HubPages is changing their focus to feeding their new niche sites, where will you be moving your hubs that don't fit the new sites?I highly doubt they'll make any new sites that have anything to do with any of the...

Only the best Hubs on HubPages are being moved to niches, so everything on the niche sites is spam free and trash free. There are no pieces written in broken English or written in ways that appear to be spun. Everything...

Are HP merely just creating new niche sites and hoping Google will pick them up? or are they actively promoting the sites in the wider world of the niche the site is based on?

Hi all. Have been away for a while. Can you please update me to the effect that the niche sites have had on your hubpages if any. Look forward to chatting with you all my fellow hubbers!
