Another ex-squid here HubPages created a bunch of other sites that showcase the best quality writing. When you publish a new hub it will automatically be considered for a network (or niche, or vertical) site. The 'Submit to a network site' button is for articles you think stand a decent chance of being moved. You can submit an existing hub every 14 days. Network sites get more exposure and traffic. Hubpages itself is now a sort of collection point for all the rest.
The network moderators/assessors are pretty strict. My advice would be to make sure your grammar is as spot-on as you can make it. Images legal-to-use, formatting neat and tidy, and only one Amazon capsule.
Since the network sites were introduced, traffic has increased along with earnings.
Quick note to explain bios - you should write a short bio that indicates you have some experience or qualifications relevant to the article. If you can't offer a solid background in a subject, try to think of something to say about it - e.g., for my beauty articles, I wrote "As a 60-something female, Marisa Wright is well aware of the challenges facing women throughout their life in health, beauty and fashion".
As RaggedEdge says, HubPages has done what Helium attempted - it has split the site into several new sites, each one dedicated to a broad subject area. The difference is that HubPages is hand-picking only the cream of its Hubs for those sites, and the transition went smoothly. The result is that instead of crashing and burning like Helium, the new sites are doing well. Hubs which get transferrred generally get more traffic and earn better income in the long term.

Is a HubPages Network Site the same as one of the niche sites?I just noticed on one of my poetry hubs an option to "Submit to a HubPages network site". Is that something new? It is next to the options of Edit, Delete, etc. I am assuming a network site is a niche site,...

I know you can only request submit a hub every 14 days to a network site, but I am constantly improving my older hubs. Pretty much every time I submit, it gets accepted... I think it was only declined once.It would be nice if there were a feature that would reset the clock when a hub is accepted by...
