Forgive me if this has been answered. Do you delete your hubs from the HP A/C page once they are moved to niches? I know we can use the "filter" feature to see what has been moved to what niche site, so can just use that to see what is still on HP and not moved. Then we can decide if older hubs are worth salvaging or if a rewrite can make it acceptable and up to standards.
I just wondered what others do.
Your account page lists all your Hubs, whichever site they are on. If you delete a Hub from your account page, you delete the Hub completely, no matter which site it's on!
OMG! I was considering deleting what I wrote on HP once it went to the niches, because my A/C page is so cluttered looking. I want to see at a glance what's worth saving or trashing. Thanks for the warning. I put so many hours into what I wrote.
It is OK to Unpublish for a while, as I fix up or rewrite a hub, yes? I have a few where I think I can successfully take two hubs and make it into one better one.
No. Any benefit Google gives to age will be lost. And any copies out there are now older than yours; you will lost control of your hub and become the plagiarist rather than the thief that stole it.
You cannot unpublish and republish a hub while retaining the benefits of the original publication date. And that includes ownership.
I think you're misunderstanding Jean's post, Wilderness.
She thought that once a Hub was moved to the niche sites, she could delete it from her "My Account" page. As you know, that would be a disaster because that would delete the Hub from the niche site.
Thanks Marisa and Dan,
I asked the question about deleting a hub from our HP A/C page if it was on a niche first.
Later I asked about unpublishing so I could combine two hubs into one better one.
So you were both right. Marisa answered the first question, then I asked the other one about unpublishing to work on hubs.
You've both saved me from making a big mistake.
I leave the unfeatured hubs (traffic) be and only unpublish hubs that need a complete overhauling. I just deleted some (after saving them) that I didn't want to put more time in.
Thanks for answering that because I was confused by the question and what A/C page meant. I assumed it meant account page but I didn't know why Jean would want to delete her Hub. You are right if you delete it there it is gone completely.
Thank goodness you asked first! The only thing you can do is use the "filter" button.

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....

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 "Google love" so are only moved in the slow process where I ask HP to move...

Have any of your hubs been moved to the new sites yet?Just curious if anyone's "niche" hubs have been moved to the new sites. Thank you for answering.

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more like 30. The articles I worked long and hard to produce, sit there doing nothing...

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?
