So far I have had only one hub sent to a niche site, the Holidappy niche. The hub is “Gifts for Men Craft Ideas,” and while it got traffic before Father’s Day, since then very little traffic. I think if it were in a more generic craft niche the traffic would be much improved. The craft ideas in this hub are suitable as gifts for men any time of the year. Is there already a niche that would be considered a generic craft niche? Or will there be one soon?
My craft hubs are doing very well on HubPages so I am concerned that if, or when, they are moved to a niche the traffic to them will go down because of how they are categorized. I have been working at getting my hubs edited, patterned after the way the two that went through HubPro were done.
I would like to know how the niches have worked out for the folks that have had their craft hubs moved. I’m wondering if I should quit hoping the team starts to notice my hubs or if I’m better off staying on HubPages. What is your opinion?
The new generic "craft" niche site is Feltmagnet...your hub would be more suited there I imagine. I have had three hubs moved to niche sites...they did well initially but traffic has slowed. I have no idea how to get staff to notice my other 260 hubs though. Maybe it takes time, and they have employed new staff to help with the process.
I'm not sure, but I think if you edit a hub, it will get noticed by staff. It is a good idea to edit hubs anyway to make sure they meet the stricter quality criteria. I've been going through mine, just one or two a day (fi I have the time) and removing excess amazon capsules.
I suggest you email the team @ hubpages.com and ask them to move that Hub to Feltmagnet because it will probably do better there
Thank you sallybea, Jodah and Marisa for your suggestions. Following your suggestions, I've e-mailed the team with my concerns. Hopefully they have time to respond.

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 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 looked at my hub scores today and cried. They have been falling steadily for two weeks from 70's & 80's to 60's and 70's with one 59. Today, one of my hubs has fallen to a 50. HP is sending me...

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...

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...
