    What does it mean when your hub gets snipped? Is this good or bad?

    I got one of my hubs snipped and HP's email notification was confusing. Can someone explain it? Is the article snipped as in shortened?

    Snipped is used several ways. When I hear an article has been snipped they don't mean it went through HubPro Edit service. That is when  they edit the Hub in entirety with snipping as part of that process.

    What is meant by 'snipped' is amazon or ebay capsules have been removed and 'maybe' the title was changed to my limited understanding. The Hubs that undergo that are usually Hubs going to the new niche sites. That basically is a good thing for article traffic in the future as said by most in the forums.

    The reason why they are snipped is because the new Niche Sites have tougher standards for promoting products. That standard will soon be for all Hubs eventually. You will have to explore the forums for more information.

    Following are links about those sites that have opened and new ones soon to open. If your Hub has been snipped I would look at those to decide if your Hub may be moved to one of those. BTW . . . there is not possibility of opting out of a Hub Moved to a Niche Site. Overall it is a good thing anyway.

    Info on the New Niche Sites have been announced in the Newsletter emails, blog posts, and available at the forum "Offical Announcement Discussions" found at this link http://hubpages.com/forum/category/6632

    This link is the to the original "New Niche Topic Sites" announcement two months ago http://hubpages.com/community/forum/135 … ching-soon

    A complete list of topic Niche Sites soon to open is here http://hubpages.com/community/forum/135 … -the-works

    The ones that have opened can be seen at the first link posted for Forum Announcements where individual site announcements can be discovered.
