    Is it better to share Hubs from niche sites as opposed to the main site on social? Do you guys wait for them to be selected for niche before you share?

      Hi Jesse Drzal! I share them whether they are moved to a niche site or not. smile

        Even if they move after being already shared on social media, the link would just change and direct to another website (the niche your hub is sent to).

    There's a reason why most people do not share hubs on the hubpages domain on social media sites such as stumbleupon and Flipboard. That's because the domain is marked as spam (probably) and doesn't receive the same exposure as to articles from other sites (the niche sites for instance).

    There's a good reason behind this, though, most of the hubs that are shared are going to be low quality and be shared by people who use hubpages as a web 2.0 platform to market their business. This was especially true in the past, but penalties are hard to get rid of.

    It really depends on which social media site you intend to share, there's no harm in sharing a HP domain hub, but if your content is going to move soon, then it's better to wait it out and share once it's moved to a niche site. The niche sites are all high quality pieces and so there's a far lower probability of them ever being marked as spammy sites.

    Most of my sharing is on FB. Hubs just look way better on niche, plus they like to load much faster. Seems like it would be better to drive some traffic to the niche sites as well to me.

      Sharing on FB is alright, as there's no real promotion by the site itself, it's based on interests and your friends/following. Yes the niche sites do look better, and that's because they are the sites that are continually being developed, with minimal focus on the main hubpages domain, for obvious reasons smile
