I currently am thinking about diversifying. I have two hubs that attract most views, and while I am submitting to niche every two months, there are some that have never done very well here.
I would like to create a niche blog (and am thinking of going through wordpress and ipage), but am also looking for other sites to drop my low page view/won't fit in my blog niche sites.
It appears that the payout for adsense is $100 and I am afraid I won't get it if I just drop one article or two on those other sites.
The payout for Adsense is $100 but you only have one Adsense account, so it doesn't matter how many different sites you post on - all the income from all those sites will flow to that single Adsense account.
More important, I think, is to look at what those other sites earn. Most of us have tried other content sites and been disappointed. You need to ask yourself whether the effort of writing on other sites is going to be worth your time.
It sounds like you've already grasped that to be successful, a website must specialise. HubPages is moving to a niche site structure because they've realised that an anything-and-everything site can never succeed in the new climate. All the other big content sites had the same realisation long ago, and most closed down as a result.
So when you're looking at other generalist content sites, you're looking at sites run by one or two individuals, who are content with slim profit margins, and that's why they're still running. I have articles on a few of the surviving ones and they don't make money. I have been recommending DailyTwoCents as they started out really well, but Nate has just reported his articles aren't doing well there - if he's finding that, then it's probably not worthwhile either.
So, my advice would be - if you've got Hubs that don't get much traffic here, they will get even less on any of the other sites, so don't move them. If some have such low traffic that they're unFeatured, pick one site and move them there, just for the sake of it - but don't expect much.
