The Niche Sites Are Killing My Stats

    I don't mean to be a Debbie downer but ever since my hubs were moved to some of the niche sites, my numbers have crashed. And so I'm wondering about your experience has been so far?  Will things change or do I need to give it more time?

      Hello mister Hollywood. Perhaps, it is time to start making new hubs. A few people had the same situation with the numbers. The reason, the new sites needs to sing in. A few people do not connect fast, so they go somewhere else to read; where, they do not need to sing in. Good luck with your numbers.

      Which sites have your Hubs been transferred to?

      It seems to me that some of the niche sites are doing very well indeed, but others are not. My own theory is that it comes down to the way they've put subjects together.

      The whole reason that niche sites work is, basically, keywords.  When you write a Hub, I'm sure you try to use a variety of different keywords related to your subject, because you know that will attract Google.  When you write a whole website about that subject, you can use a vast range of keywords  and that impresses Google even more!

      Pethelpful is doing well - that's because "Pets" is genuinely a single broad subject area.  Google can look at that site and see hundreds of keywords, all about animals. 

      But look at Feltmagnet.  Google looks at the keywords on that site and thinks, "Oh, it's about crafts.  No wait, it's about fine art.  No wait, it's about photography."  I haven't heard any positive feedback from people whose Hubs are on that site yet.

        DenGarden and caloriebee are doing good.

          Yes, and I'd expect that because caloriebee is about diet and exercise, which are natural bedfellows.  Dengarden would, in my opinion, do even better as two separate sites (one for home and one for garden) but they are often put together so it's not too bad.

        Thanks, Marisa. Very helpful. While it's nice to read others experiencing positive bumps, few here offered insight that helped me to understand the potential "why" behind the numbers. I'm going to audit the transfers and compare to the niched to see themes. Thanks again!!!

    As I've said on other posts on the forum, my numbers have skyrocketed.  REALLY skyrocketed.  I'm sorry yours have tanked.

      Maybe it's just that mine have not indexed or something but I can't say it's been good news. Glad yours are benefitting.

    I've seen a huge increase in traffic from the technology/science niche site. The name works very well too.

    My traffic has over tripled and only 4 hubs were transferred to 2 sites. I am over the moon. I've waited four years for this kind of growth and its definitely been worth it.  I have something like 70 odd hubs but these four are now my top earners, I'm getting lots of feedback and comments.

    My experience is that a move to a niche site improves traffic for my Hubs or they stay what they've been. I do think it takes time. There is usually an adjustment with the Google search engine when changes are made to a site.

    One of my Hubs that had fallen in the search results climbed back up after it was moved to a niche site. At any rate, my point is you probably just need to give it some time. There are a lot of variables though, as others have pointed out. Like subject matter.

      Thanks Nate that makes sense. They say patience is a virtue - I need a dose of that.
