Here's the hub that needs to go to a niche site.
https://hubpages.com/education/Are-Hurr … g-Stronger
Moderators, do your thing and edit this hub so that it meets quality standards for vertical sites.
Well then, you have to wait. Your site was considered on creation and first publishing. So you might want to spend the time improving it to increase the odds of success next time around. The videos with prominent watermarks might be an issue?
I contacted the editors who edit hubs for publishing to niche sites hours ago, and I have yet to hear from them.
Which vertical site would this article fall under?
Dude, don't bother the editors. They'll get to your article when they get to it. It's like going to the DMV. You get in line and wait your turn.
When will that be? October 21st? Much earlier? IDK!!! I can't wait 9 more days. What if that article never reaches a niche site. What if I made a deadly mistake?
You don't need to hear from the editors and have no reason to contact them. You can submit the hub on the date indicated when you try to submit it. (Waiting for that period of time is not optional.) They will look at it them. It will either fail and stay where it is, or succeed and go to the niche site. These two options and the option of deleting the hub entirely are the three things that could occur. None of them have any "deadly" significance.
But I can't wait. I contacted the editors for a reason.
You're right. I have a choice. Improve my article, wait until october 21st, or complain and get banned again. I choose A AND B.
Thank you. That's very mature of you. The rest of us have to wait and follow the rules, so you should, too. I don't think coming on the forum and demanding that your article be edited would work, anyway. For one thing, it goes against how HP handles the editing/niche queue, and for another thing, I don't know that the editors spend any time reading the forums. It is doubtful they will see your request. Perhaps your email will work. Who knows?
Yes, and the post would benefit from the author studying it for improvements, especially if he wants it to say what he means, not what someone else thinks he means. He would learn and grow by making the needed edits himself. One of the gifts of doing our own editing is that we refine our writing skills so readers find it easy to read our work. Our articles can always be improved but when there are clear needs in the writing asking others to do it for us will, at best, inhibit our growth.
B is actually: complain and get ignored. Complaining is not forbidden, it just happens to be a complete waste of your time in this case. But it's your time, so have at it.
Learning how to work within a set structure might be useful for you later in life when your choices have more serious consequences. So hopefully once you get over being impatient and upset, you will learn something from this.
Hubpages has become RIDICULOUS- I write from Florence, Italy so NATURALLY, I include links to websites here in the city to provide travelers with useful info AND I sell my books (set in FLORENCE) on Amazon. Hubpages never used to have a problem with either factor. NOW, it's a major problem and all of my featured hubs (some of which have been read OVER 100K times) are no longer featured. I'm searching for a better site to publish on, that way, I can unpublish here and publish there.
theraggededge, deal with him, because his post is completely unrelated to the topic. FatFreddysCat. Deal with him. I can't risk another ban.
Sorry to hear that. You'll be missed.
...wait, who are you again?
Okay, you've hijacked this thread, but you've probably made the right decision. Bye bye.

Please be aware that the high-competition niches you've chosen to create new sites for will be competing with professional websites with professional writers and professional, magazine-level editors and photographers. For instance, your food niche website will need to compete with Food Network and...

Is a new hub automatically considered for a niche site without me doing anything? I am not sure what the rule is about this.

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 posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank space where it should be.When I went into "edit" mode I can see the...

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?...

I'm curious if anyone knows if the new editors that were hired have completed the training and are on their own now, or if article standards have changed for some reason? The last few months I've had some very old and not updated articles moved to niche sites. I'm happy more of my articles are...
