Its been 4 days since I made the subdomain switch. I have not even seen a 10% change in traffic or earnings. Has the change failed for me? Are my Hubs not good enough? Am I analyzing to early?
Too early to tell Sid. Bear in mind there will be a plunge before the storm due to the fact that your current hubs will be re-indexed by Google.
As far as I can tell 147 of your hubs have been re-indexed on 317. As the rest are picked up and cached by Google your traffic will continue to climb.
Fear not, this is your lowest point.
I appreciate your reply. Is there a average time that it takes? Like 10 days, 2 weeks or so because just about a month since it started and a few hubbers are reporting great results.
It can vary, but you should start seeing results very soon. I'm in the same boat and a week or so after the change all my hubs have been re-indexed and my traffic is not only higher than it was post-panda, but its reaching pre-panda levels.
A month sounds about right IMO, but someone who switched earlier will know better than I would. As far as I know Panda sweeps by every 3-4 weeks for a complete swipe.
@Sid - you have about 1/3 of your hubs in the new subdomain - where all of your hubs indexed previously?
My experience, and most of my hubs were quite old, it took about 2 weeks for G to find all the new urls, I got a couple of days of significantly higher traffic (though not at Panda levels) - and now my overall traffic has dropped back to the (abysmal) post Panda levels.
IMHO - you need to make a choice - do the hard work to rank your hubs - or decide that if you have to do that much work you might as well invest the effort in sites you actually own

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....
