    I don't know the name of the person who edited one of my Hubs last week but I just wanted to say to her or him that I am so pleased with what you did to it. 

    You did a great job and the Hub is performing really well as are most of my hubs on the niche site.

    My thanks to all of you.

    Sally

      Sally, you did a nice thing. I wish there were more like you, MsDora and MY followers in this hectic world.
      Peace.

          sallybea, may I assume that the smiley face was for me? The reason: I do not get that many smiley faces as it stands today.

              smile Aweee, how very sweet of you, sallybea. You made my day. I know that using this corny phrase may be laughable, but it came from my heart.

    Great gesture, Sally.  I join you in saying "Thanks" to the HP staff for the hard work they have been, and are, doing.

    Good for you, Sally. HubPages gets a lot of criticism on the forums and elsewhere so it is great to see them r ceiling praise for good work too. If they'd just choose more of my hubs for the niche sites I'd praise them more too..hint hint.

      I think that the proof is in the pudding Jodah.  My top 5 hubs are hubs which were selected for niche sites and the traffic has increased phenomenally but I also give a lot of credit to Flipboard for much of that:)

    I need to jump in here and offer my thanks to staff as well. I'm extremely pleased with the changes they've done with my hubs that were moved to niche sites.

    Revenue has never been better, and half of it is from Amazon sales. Staff really knew how to make Amazon capsules work! Thank you HubPages! And thanks to you too, Sally, for starting this forum thread.

      Really? I had pretty much abandoned all my Amazon ads. Now you are making me give it a second thought.

      The niche sites really seem to be picking up traffic. I've had several hubs edited and have not one complaint. They did get rid of some links that were kind of redundant. They also spent an awful lot of time taking the apostrophe's out of my dates (ie 1970's to 1970s).

        Yes, Amazon works well, but you have to do it right. See the other forum on this at:

        I would not abandon ads Dolores as they are an integral part of our revenue, even with limited ads being allowed our pages you will still get sales.

          I earned more with the HP ads than the Amazon ads. I actually like Amazon ads. I feel that they can ad to the content by showing how much an item sells for. But it seemed as if Google wasn't happy with them. When I removed ads, traffic improved a bit.  Of course that all depends on the subject matter of your hub. Glad to hear that some hubbers are earning from Amazon!

      Hi Glen,
      I have not done as well on Amazon of late, especially last month but prior to that, I was still getting sales from e-Bay and Amazon.

        Sally, Try doing what I did. After I saw that a snipped hub did much better, I started examining what I was doing with other Amazon ads. If I had a hub with an Amazon ad that didn't actually relate to the title, I removed the capsule. Leaving just one Amazon capsule that was 100% related to the subject promised in the title, did much better.

    True, Sally. They are doing some commendable job with all their efforts and forbearance. Really they deserve appreciation wherever needed. And you are very noble in expressing the appreciation.

      Thanks, Vnkatachari M - they really do!  There have been times when I felt like chucking in the towel, however, I think things are looking up and in the end, we will all reap the benefits of putting the necessary work in.
