Should you expect increases from Google (big or small) because your Hubs have been moved to niche sites? I have Hubs on 7 different niches but no increase in traffic from Google. What's the deal? (and, yes, they've been on the niche sites for weeks).
My experience differs from yours. Most (not all) of my hubs that have been moved to niche site have increased Google views.
It seems to depend on the Hubs. Many of mine are doing better on niche sites but a few are not; but those ones that are not doing any better never were big on traffic.
Yes I would expect traffic to improve, that's the entire point of the niche sites!
However, personally I think some of the niche sites will work and some won't, because I think HubPages has made some mistakes in the way they've set them up.
The whole idea of niche sites is that Google prefers sites that offer thorough information and advice on a single broad topic area. So, where HubPages has genuinely created a site like that - PetHelpful, for instance - Google loves it and is sending it good traffic. However, where HubPages has cobbled a niche site together from two or three vaguely-related topics, Google doesn't rate it any higher than the main site and traffic isn't likely to improve.
That's why my dance Hubs are languishing on Hobbylark, because 90% of Hobbylark is about Games and Puzzles, and the addition of Performing Arts just confuses Google. Or why photography Hubs don't do well on FeltMagnet, which is largely about Crafts. I don't know which site your Hubs are on but that could be part of the explanation.

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? ...

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...

Should I submit the article with the highest hubscore for a higher chance of approval?

I pretty much have the same amount of traffic everyday but last week 5 of my hubs were moved to niche sites and since then I've has less half the traffic as normal. What could cause that?
