Does anyone know why some submissions to niche sits are approved in 24 hours and others go 3 weeks or more. I had one that took over 3 weeks , but was finally approved. I have another now that I have been waiting on for over 3 weeks (The one I submitted 2 weeks after this one is already approved.) Do some of them need a longer review? (if so, why?) If it is not accepted, would I get a rejection notice?
Some moderators simply have more articles to edit than others! ...and yes, they will tell you if your article was not accepted.
Thanks. Christy recently wrote that letterpile had the biggest backlog, but my submision to letterpile wa approved in 24 hours. Two of my submission to owlcation took over 3 weeks (i week is typical.) So it is making me think that some submissions need to be reviewed by more than one editor.
That's possible. I also think that people the moderators trust to write good hubs may get work moved to niches more often. I've been here a long time, have a to of views, make good money for the site and my submissions, for example, usually get approved within a day. Sometimes new hubs get moved as quickly as two to five days. It may also have to do with the topics we write about. Right now, I'm "in season" so my work is very popular. Last month I got 119,000 page views...the most I've ever had! That will change in a few months, but if you're hot, they're more likely to move your work quickly I think.
Perhaps there's some truth to that, they're more likely to move hubs that may get a lot of traffic due to the time of year.
I've been waiting a long time for another hub to get moved but the last one got moved during a traffic spike for my hubs/niche.
My peak traffic occurs in the 4th quarter of the year, so I wouldn't be surprised if it took that long to move any more hubs I've completed.
To date, across both of my sites, which total 150 articles, 118 for RV and 32 for a mixed batch, they've taken all but 9 of the RV articles and all but 1 of the articles from the second site, which is one I just posted today. Before long, unless I keep writing, there won't be any for them to take!
My last several articles have gone right into Letterpile but I have one in the series that did not and I have changed pictures, shortened sentences...and it looks just like the others. How can I figure out what is wrong?
I submitted yesterday to letterpile and 6 hours later it was accepted. Fastest acceptance yet for me. I wonder if there is some kind of system--perhaps certain topics get reviewed immediately?
The ones I am speaking of, which are my latest, automatically go to LetterPile without me submitting them...but this one did not. It is the same as far as I can see. Hard to understand.
My new posts almost always go to a niche site within one day to a week. But, why do you think some get moved immediately and some take much long. I'm talking about newly published posts as well as submitted posts.
Is it just that the ones quickly accepted happened to arrive on a slow day? Or is there some other reason?
Could it be the difference in who decides? Who edits? That is what I am asking. I have 8 articles in the same style, on the same subject and only one is not accepted and although they sent me to the instructions and I changed all I know to change that I saw nothing wrong with, it still has not been accepted. This is a continued series so I just find it important that it does, money is not an issue in anything I write.
It made it in! Finally. Still wish I had all the answers though. lol

No, you don't get notified if they are rejected. They just don't move. That's why I say, if it hasn't moved in a month, assume it's failed.
I did get a rjection letter once. It was before the 2-week rule started. It even gave some resons. It was boiler plate and it didn't make any sense. It was also a very popular hub.
The one I am currently concerned about is also popular. About a year ago , I had to fie 4 DMCA complaints because other websites kept stealing it. No recent thefts, tho.
Everything else I have submitted has been accepted. It doesn't seem right to not at least get a rejection letter.
I said that because I have had several emails telling me that if I corrected certain issues my hub would be accepted. Usually, if I haven't heard, I send an email asking the status and am usually told that it's in the que waiting to be edited.
My bad. My hub was approved in timely fashion for the niche site. I just checked on it and saw it was in toughtnickel. So I went back to my email and searched and found the notification. I evidently missed it.
This is what I have noticed with my articles that have moved and been rejected for niche sites wanderwisdom and pethelpful.
When the article is new, i.e. a hub that has just been published, it either gets accepted to a niche site as published, or pending editing. In either case, a notification email is sent. If a new hub doesn't attract a response from a niche site, it can be assumed that, at least for the time being the hub doesn't fulfill their standard.
Now for the ones accepted pending editing. If the edits the writer has done satisfy the editors, they will move the hub as edited or do more minor edits as needed. When the hub is edited by editors, a green icon appears next to it. Shortly after, a second email is sent notifying you that the hub has moved.
If the hub is rejected at this point, an email is also sent notifying of the rejection and inviting you to resubmit after making the hub better. The email may also advise that the nature of the problem is almost impossible to remedy.
If you are invited to resubmit, it is very possible to still get the hub moved providing it is fixed. One of my hubs took me at least 4 edits before it moved!
The procedure for old hubs( those
preceeding HP's revamp) is different.
The writer needs to actually submit these, one by one to a niche site every 14 days. After submission, an email is sent either accepting the hub exactly as it is or requesting edits.
As above, if the edits don't satisfy the editors, an email of rejection is sent.
Very good old hubs are also moved to niche sites without the writer needing to submit them. In this case an email notifying that the hub has moved is sent.
Common Difficultues I have encountered with this process are:
The email from Hubpages Editors almost always go into my junk folder immediately!
Sometimes the editor's refusal after going all the edits requested can be confusing and lots of follow up may be needed. As I said, it is very possible to get a rejected hub unto a niche
Very recently, my hubs which have been deemed eligible pending edits by an editor have been taking longer than usual to be accepted. Right now it's been almost a week since one in particular ( a new hub) was edited as requested and resubmitted. Still no word!
Maybe, HP staff has gotten very busy!
Some niche sites likely get more submissions than others, which would create a back log as well.
I have submitted two Hubs from my "back catalog" to Spinditty in the past couple of weeks. I have heard nothing from HP Central about either one of them. However, a new music related Hub that I wrote in the interim was accepted to Spinditty within 24 hours of it being published. Go figure. (shrugs)
I don't know but I've noticed that I don't get notified if my thing isn't accepted, it's weird.

Over 1/4 of my hubs have not been moved to a niche site. They do not have much traffic from Google, so it is not HPs fault that they have not been selected. There is nothing wrong with them, but they do not have...

How can we tell if our articles have been moved to the niche sites (I believe they are called)? I think I found at least 2 of my articles there but how do we know if they have been moved?

I noticed that hubs in niche sites no longer include the "More by this author" section below the hub. Is this just an oversight or was it a decision to drop it on niche sites?
