Hi MarieLB, Thank you for answering here. I am assuming we will be notified if they do move a hub to one of the other sites, obviously? I think they should provide a link to our regular HP account if they do move a hub.
Good question, Faith. A couple of my hubs have garnered more traffic (The Breaking Bad Finale and Downton Abbey), but these are clearly defined in topic headings. I don't know how to check if others have been moved.
Theresa.....I believe the other niche mentioned was "Pets." I certainly have no specific niche. I can't even imagine limiting my topics to the same theme. I write about anything & everything.
Do you know, does this mean that our hubs that are placed in specific Niches will no longer appear on our Account page or profile pages?
I simply cannot keep up with all the changes, so I don't even try. I am one of those meandering hubbers who is just happy to be able to have this site as an outlet for my passion for writing, reading, learning & "people." I make only minimum earnings and I don't expect to set the world on fire here! LOL
It will be interesting to see where (what niches) some of our hubs will end up.
Obviously, since we have no say in any of this, it will do no good to object or complain. It's almost like we here at HP are in the Military!
Hi Paula, well, look at you there, so cute! I love your new profile picture. I usually write non-fiction, except every once in a while. I believe they will be moved from our account page, but not real sure? LOL you certainly have a way with words!
They changed the summary and things like that, took out an ad which I had only forgotten to remove and I liked it. Don't know how much more they did. Haven't looked it over good but I am OK with it. I just still don't know what it is all about. lol
2 of mine have been moved to a niche site. Den-something-or other. One was my review of a mattress topper and the other was how to organically maintain your septic tank. Both went to the same niche site.
Yes, just today! My hub 'How to Make a Beautiful Goldfish Pond.' I didn't even know anything about all this. Will be interesting to see if it makes a difference and what that would be. Thanks for suggesting I mention it here! I don't really know what it is all about and since that hub does not have ads I am surprised they even chose it because how does it benefit them? Guess we will have all that clear eventually. lol
No they didn't remove them but what I was saying is although they have always pushed us to use our own I have never seen any benefit in it and I know my photos are good but just saying perhaps in this case it helped me make the grade.
I recently had a new hub moved over to ToughNickel.com, which is apparently a business/leadership site. I received a notification and email letting me know it was selected and moved. Additionally, they snipped one of the pictures for optimization reasons. It may be pretty standard but for now I'm ignorantly flattered
Hahah, Justin, I love that, "ignorantly flattered" as am I when they moved one of mine too. Yes, don't sweat the snip of one photo. The new niche sites sure do have a lot of different names. Mine went to Calorie Bee. Congrats!
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 was under the impression that we could only submit one hub every two weeks for niche sites. I submitted a hub and an editor replied with changes that I needed to make before it could be moved. As I'm...
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...
The focus of HP has turned to the niche sites. Editing services will only be used on hubs being considered for the several new niche domains for the foreseeable future. The niche topics chosen for the next year or so...
The chart showed a loss of about 55% of the traffic on Hubpages in the last 6 months.I also looked at the traffic trends on some of the niche sites, and they don't seem to be making up for the loss.In fact the bounce...
Many people have asked how the new sites are performing so far. The latest Newsletter provides a general overview, but I'd also like to invite Hubbers who have had Hubs moved to discuss your experiences here. Overall,...
