So I have a few related hubs which haven't had traffic in 30 days. Would it be a good idea to "sweep them up" and aggregate them into a new hub? Is “The whole greater than the sum of its parts” ? All the hubs are quite short so when put together, there would be more content, more photos and I could turn it into an "X ways" of doing things type hub (Just had a déjà vu recollection that I asked this question before)
Don't sweep them up and put them into another hub; just update and submit for publishing again. Then, once it's republished, share on social media. It is amazing how just a little dusting off can help.
The plan is to create a totally new hub so it gets considered for a niche site.
As I was just discussing on another thread, my view is that it's vital to get your Hubs moved to the niche sites. In spite of the recent setback, the niche sites are where the traffic is and therefore where the income is.
How short is short? The ideal length for a Hub is around 1,500 words. If the Hubs fit logically together and the result will be less than 2,500 words long, then it's definitely worth aggregating.
I'm sorry but articles on this site are not exposed to the web, its like they are hid under a secondary umbrella, with a lower classification. you will do better to market them on another site as suggested. This is a good site perhaps to create and to store your work.
What a strange comment. Why do you think articles on this site are "not exposed to the web"? They definitely are - unless they have been marked "unFeatured" for some reason, which means HubPages has decided to deliberately hide them from Google.
I took a quick look at one or two of your Hubs and I wonder if you are fully aware of all the changes that have happened at HubPages over the years. Your Hubs use some outdated practices such as adding lots of links, or writing a big block of text followed by a bunch of photos instead of mixing them up. I wrote a Hub about How to Optimize your Hubs, you'll find it on the slider on my profile. I think you might find it helpful in getting your Hubs "exposed to the web".
Probably 1 hub with a higher word count and more pictures that might be featured on a niche site seems like the better option.

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

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 a niche site has more than 1,250 words, multiple photos and an original video....

I recently started cleaning up my hubs and I plan to start submitting them to to the niche sites - well rather, the ones that are not already on. I submitted an article this month, however I can't remember which one it was (terrible memory, I know.) How can I know if my submission was successful?...

Some people say you should never, ever delete a hub...only edit it and such. What makes you just completely trash your own hubs?

Yes, everybody thinks their favorite topic area deserves its own niche site. But in the case of "History" I think there really are some very valid reasons why this is so. History differs from many other topic areas in that searchers are often really researchers. They don't just jump on...

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...
