How much has changed in the last couple of years? Not sure if anyone here would even remember me. Are things getting better or worse? Just wondering.
Hey! I remember you. I believe that you are one of my followers. Where have you been for so long?
Things are a lot better on HP these days. Just start publishing your hubs again and find out.
Glad you are back!
Glad to hear that things are going well. I've been working on a couple of books, and doing youtube a lot. I was just wondering how things were going here. I also remember you, even though my memory isn't what it used to be.
That sounds so interesting. Like I said, you were missed and now we are glad that you are back.
So nice to see you & I've pleased to hear you're still writing. Sill haven't been able to catch up on articles due to other obligations, but hanging in there. I have no doubt you'll be back up & running with fantastic articles as in the past. Have to check out your You Tube channel. Is Nature's Cool the channel? Love the Midwest Gardener Channel.
I'm glad to hear that you are hanging in there. Sometimes that is about the best a person can do. The Midwest Gardener Channel is the one I spend most of my time on. The other one is mine too though. I was amazed at how fast I was able to grow the gardening one. It's kept me pretty busy in the summer, and I really enjoy it too. Been growing lots of things to feed the less fortunate, so it's a win win situation.
Welcome back. I remember your name but notice that you have no writing featured at the moment! I think you will find many changes around here.
@Pawpawwrites Welcome back! Things are pretty great here. Good luck with your hubs.
You don't have any hubs. I wanted to look at them so that I can see what you wrote then and what would be different now. Did you remove all your hubs or did you never write any?
I deleted all my hubs. I decided that my time was better invested elsewhere. I'm really glad to hear that it seems to be working out for so many people.
well, I have a ton of unpublished hubs (former lenses) that I need to move elsewhere. Earnings are a bit discouraging here.
I'm doing some light blogging over at Niume, a community blogging site. Let me know if you'd like a referral. It's not much of an earner either.
Thanks so much for the offer of a referral. That's very kind of you. I'm glad that you have options and have found another place that works for you too. I'm too busy trying to finish my second novel to do much writing other than that right now.
I'm sorry I left previously, but make no mistake, I didn't leave because of hubpages but because of the constant trolling of Republicans and Christians.
Now I've learnt how to deal with trolls, and while the first time I was here it took me three months to get my first pay out and a pretty rapid rise after that, it's been a bit slower now but I'm still earning every month now.
I also love the fact that there are niche sites, and while not every article is selected, enough are for it to be a worthwhile experience.
After a long, long drought, things are definitely getting better, IF you're able to write content that's good enough to be transferred to the niche sites.
That's the biggest change on HubPages - it's not just one site any longer. They've created several new sites, each specialising in a broad subject area. They created them by cherry-picking the best Hubs from HubPages and transferring them to the new sites.
When you write a new Hub, it's published on the main site, but it's also automatically considered for the new sites within the first few weeks. If it doesn't get moved within a month or so, it's not considered good enough to be moved. If you want to get it moved (and you do, because that's where the money is), then you need to improve it substantially. Once you've done that, you can resubmit it manually (but you can submit only one Hub every two weeks).
The first thing I'd suggest you do is go to your Profile, click "Edit Profile", scroll down to the place where it says "Show Only Featured Hubs" and change it to "no". That way, at least other Hubbers can see your old Hubs. No one else can right now, not even Google, so you've got some work to do!
Next, go to my profile and find my Hub on "The Basic HubPages Rules" on the slider. Read it. It summarises all the rules as they stand today, which may be slightly different to what they were when you left.
Thank you very much for trying to be so helpful. At the moment, I have just too many other things to work on, but it is nice to know that there have been some improvements made. Thanks again for your kindness.
I have been busy writing on my own website and have recently started paying attention to HP. As to the best hubs with most traffic being moved...many of my larger traffic ones are still on HP. I have started working on my hubs but at a rate of them being moved only every 2 weeks...it will take forever to get most of mine moved over to niche sites.
Question...if we make changes to our old hubs...adding bios, etc. will they be noticed and moved without our having to submit them?
Another question about Flipboard. I just started using it today for the niche ones that have been moved. Am I doing this correctly? For name, I am typing my own name. Should I instead be writing the name of the niche site like Dengarden?
Thanks for any help. I tried searching and could not find a forum where this was addressed.
Hubs for the niche sites were first picked based on traffic. The good quality high traffic hubs were moved.
Even now they are still going through the backlog to find good hubs, but with lower levels of traffic. However, the quality of these hubs has to be a lot higher than the ones picked solely on traffic merits. New hubs are automatically considered, but old hubs in most cases are going to have to be personally submitted.
It initially began with a hubber being able to submit one hub in 60 days. Now it's one in 14 days. Over time as the backlog is cleared, I think the time frame can go even lower, so people such as you with hundreds of hubs, have the opportunity to get them moved. Until then you have the time to fix them to the niche website standards - amazon capsules, heading structure, images being full width (and not pixelated), etc.
I remember your name, though very vague. But I do remember your profile pic. Welcome back. I don't think we've ever spoken much HP is a great place to be right now.
Thanks to everyone for the welcome back. Glad things are picking up here. Nice to know.

The hubs that used to get 50-100 visits a day are down to 10-20 now. While most of the hubs have not been hit as hard, others have. Have you been affected by the update, too? What do you suggest to recover from it?

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...
