Quick announcement! Due to performance issues that we believe may be related to lingering penalties on the domain from a previous owner, we’ve decided to try an experimental name change with the family and parenting-themed Network Site. The new URL and site branding will use the name and logo “WeHaveKids.” This change is now live, and you can visit wehavekids.com to check it out. We will be monitoring the site closely for the next few weeks to determine whether this change has been effective.
Thanks for your patience while we do our best to make sure all the Network Sites are as successful as they can be.
There's a redirect error on the new site. When I click on the "Having a Baby" picture on the front page of wehavekids.com it goes to http://hubpages.com/having-baby/ which is a 404 error page.
edit: same for "Family Relationships"
I just tested and it's working ok on this end, that image goes to: https://wehavekids.com/having-baby/
Are you still getting an error?
Will this create any temporary set back in terms of traffic? Or will the redirect prevent a decrease in traffic? I ask because when some of my Hubs have been moved to niche sites I recall a temporary loss of traffic but then a significant increase after the Hub had been on the niche site for awhile. I imagine a domain name change would not effect traffic the same as moving an article to a whole new site.
My one and only page on the site has never done well, so I will interested to see how it goes.
So "family" on HubPages only means those who have kids?
Good to know.
Way to leave out those who can't/chose not to have them yet still belong to a family.
It's the way the United States is. All that counts as a family to most of our country is a man, a woman, and their biological children. Right now, I'm undergoing the loss of a family member that almost no one recognizes as a member of my family. Only six people I know even comprehend that this is a loss for me, despite being her best friend, her primary caregiver, her roommate for ten years, and her emergency contact. Pretty much everyone else doesn't see that there can be familial love between people you aren't biologically related to or having sex with.
But you never know, HubPages has behaved ethically so far, so maybe they'll spin off a site that is inclusive of families that don't meet their narrow definition of family.
The site will include other types of family content as well, but the reality is that most people who write on family-related subjects write parenting articles, so that's what makes up the vast majority of family-related content on the site. We wanted a name that was reflective of the overall content on the site but in no way are attempting to imply that other types of families are invalid.
