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?
According to your profile, you have no articles on niche sites.
Just scan your eye down your lists of Hubs, each one has a category above it. If the Hub is on a niche site, it will show the niche site name instead.
I suggest you take a look at a couple of my Hubs about Hubbing, the one on How to Optimize Your Hubs and the Basic Rules will help you meet the criteria.
Thank you and I will take a look at your hubs. Always something new I need to learn.
????? Marisa....I have a good number of articles on the niche sites, and there is no indication of that in my list of hubs on the 'my account' page, either from a general scan or from hovering the mouse over them... ?????
I don't see how you can tell that--but it would be a good feature for HP to add!
Hmm - do you mean on your "My Account" page (which you can see) or on your profile (which other people can see)?
As others have explained, there is a "filter" button on your "My Account" page, where you can choose a niche site and it will show only those Hubs that are on that site. It is a bit laborious if you want to check every one - but then, why would you want to? I don't need to know exactly which Hubs are on which niche site. The only time I look at it is when I want to submit another Hub to a niche site: then I'll click the "filter" button and select "HubPages", so I can see what's left on the main site.
Oohhhh....on our PROFILE page. Silly Mr! I was looking on the 'my account' page! DUH!
Yep took me a while to figure it out too.
Just to clarify:
On your PROFILE, you can run your eye down your list of Hubs and see the category, or the niche site, just above each Hub title.
On your MY ACCOUNT page, you'll see the word "Filter", (under the heading "Statistics" and above "export csv"). Click on that and you'll see you can "select a site". Select one of the niche sites, and you'll see your list of Hubs change - it will show just the Hubs on that niche site.
Note that if you select "HubPages", it will show you only the Hubs that are still on the main site.
What you do is look at each article under your profile. If it has a heading above your article such as letterpile.com that is a niche site. I had to check out some of the other writers to see this.
Thanks everyone for taking the time to give me tips and advice. I finally figured out the answer after checking everyone else's hubs.
That reminds me, once my World of Warcraft subscription ends, and I have the time to write again, I will look at some of the best hubs in this website, and absorb them into my brain. For now, keep writing, L.M. and best of luck getting one or all of your hubs on niche sites. I'll be waiting.
Update. I have canceled my world of warcraft subscription, and now have more time to write. Currently, I'm in a writing slump. I have no idea what to write. However, I do have some developing ideas for my next writing project.
Hi L.M. Hosler,
As others have mentioned, you can look on your profile page where either a category or a HubPages Network Site will be listed. You can also search by site through the filter option in your My Account page. If one of your articles is selected for inclusion on one of our Network Sites, you will receive an email letting you know.
Most of mine have been shuffled over to niche sites. I usually get an email telling me it's happening, but maybe you've got email notifications turned off?
I have normally received an email when one of my articles has been selected for a niche site. Did you not receive an email?
I hadn't been writing for a while so and a lot of my mail goes to my spam folder. I haven't gotten mail like I used to.
Thanks for answering
Usually, when articles go on niche sites, they get edited first before they go on niche sites. I was lucky enough to have four articles on niche sites. Some people have written many more articles than I have for far longer than I have, and they havent gotten a single article on any niche site. L.M, don't judge yourself based on the notion that you have no articles on a niche site. As many people tried to tell me, don't worry about others. Worry about yourself. That advice will save you.
Thanks for the advise. I am not going to worry about others as you suggest but just keep writing.
You can also go to your Account page and use the Filter button to see which Hubs are on which site.
I've thought about submitting one and I'm not sure why I didn't. I guess I was afraid they would reject it.
Don't be afraid to submit an article to a niche site. If you get rejected, try again. the only drawback to submitting an article is that you can only submit an article once every 14 days, so choose wisely. You should only celebrate once one of your articles goes on a niche site.
If they reject it you are in no worse state than if you had not submitted it....
Also, if they don't accept it, they will usually give you reasons and that gives you a chance to improve your article and make it a candidate for acceptance.
There is a learning curve when you first start out -- persevere. People seldom hit a home run in their first game. Good Luck.
Thanks for the good advice. I will certainly give it a try. And I think it is a continuing learning curve. For myself, there is always something new to learn.
I still learn more and I've been here awhile.
I've been here a few years writing when I could find time.
four of my articles are on niche sites. the other 22 are still not on niche sites. check my profile, if you want. I'm not kidding.
Congratulations on having four articles moved to niche sites.
Ivan: I think WoW topics are evergreens. If angled the right way.
I've had no topic be a true evergreen. That's ok. It doesn't make me any less successful than a one-hit wonder. I don't have over 20,000 views in my 26 articles because HubPages sees me as a type of person who makes low-quality articles. It's true.
I think your Hubs on autism will be evergreen. It just takes time to attract readers.
What about my hubs on Hurricanes, politics or climate change?
And I agree. My hubs on autism will be evergreen.
The weather is a constant; hence its prominent place in 'small talk' when people first meet; there will always be hurricanes. The climate is changing, that's indisputable: it's the reasons that have people disagreeing and doing verbal battle. Ditto for politics--I fear they will always be with us.
Therefore, such topics should well be 'evergreen.' Even if the current state of affairs in politics changes, the writings about them simply become history, which is also an 'evergreen' topic, as the past cannot be changed!
Corrrect in theory, MsLizzy, but not in practice. Once a specific political or weather event is in the past, it is no longer evergreen. It is still useful to students of history but that's too limited a group.
Well, climate change is an ongoing process that will be with us for quite a while; and if the politicians don't get their heads out of their collective backsides and make meaningful changes to the laws regarding our resources, it may well also be our undoing!
(Look up the History Channel documentary, "Two Degrees: The Point of No Return" for a preview...)
When you are looking at your list of articles just click on the article in question, then look up in the search bar. The url will have the niche site name. For example here's the url for one of my hubs and you'll see delishably in the url address: https://delishably.com/desserts/Saltine-Cracker-Candy

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

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?
by Scott S Bateman 21 months ago
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....

Should I submit the article with the highest hubscore for a higher chance of approval?
by Sondra Rochelle 2 years ago
I know a lot of you are curious about how the niche sites are doing. Recently, 21 of my articles were moved over. Some were edited, some were not. Most did not have ads, but of the ones that did, some were left in place, others were converted to in text links to products.I've been...

What are my fellow Hubbers doing with hubs that aren't selected for a niche site? Do you plan on leaving them on HubPages or moving them. I'm not sure if it would be better to move them to my blog and risk losing page rank or to leave them and see what happens to all those "left...
