Specialty or niche hubs. I write in a genre that does not advertise or promote stuff. What?
I do not understand this popping up and asking for submission of my stuff to the promotional stuff. Is it just new and I have to embrace it? I reckon I should do more to help HP do well. They have done good by me. But it is kind of diametrically opposed to writing stuff on spirituality. Advise would be appreciated.
This is probably TMI, Eric. My advice is to do what is comfortable for you and your goals at this time. Remember HP is a community of writers that is diverse writing within a wide array of topics / Niches. Anyway following is TMI . . .
I don't understand "popping up and asking for submission of my stuff to the promotional stuff". Are you referring to the queue at a Hub to 'Submit to HubPages Network Site"?
A footnote all your articles have ads on them, so they advertise. (Unless you disabled ads or HP did because of breaking the Terms of Service someway) All your articles recommend other Hubs, so they promote stuff.
A Niche Site is a promotional site in the sense it is a focused WebSite promoting like articles and topics. It is not more advertising. The only advertising done is on your article. The specialized Niche website does promote other articles at their homepages.
No the New business model does not have to be embraced. One does not have to submit any of their articles. There aren't enough Niche Network Sites to cover all the topics to begin with. They do cover the most popular and successful areas.
A personal note is my 'life' niches doesn't fit a viable niche to write on. There are many reasons, but I still write and publish.
There are times an article is written will have no Niche Site to go to. Owlcation has a Topic area Humanities where there is theology and philosophy. I dun'no if spirituality would fit . . . Here is a link to it:
There are advantages to an article moved to one. In the perspective of getting more traffic that equates to more business success. They may be chosen by the editorial staff if it fits on one those 25 Niches, meets quality standards, and has some kind of 'steady' traffic flow. And, we have the option to submit. It will be reviewed for quality and etc.
Here is a link to the Editorial Policy for Niche Sites:

Hi everyone. I've been putting some work in writing quality articles the last few months, all my articles are approved as featured but earnings are still pretty low. I have earned a total of $1+ in two months, and with that speed it will take years to reach checkout. I have both Hubpages and...

What is more fun? Writing dozens of articles for a niche or writing all sorts of articles from holidays to teeth whitening? And leave aside the fun, what about the money - which has more potential? What would you rather do as a writer on HP - niche writing or free lancing?

What's the point in keeping us from linking to our own work in our articles? That's how we increase traffic to our articles!

Since HubPages is changing their focus to feeding their new niche sites, where will you be moving your hubs that don't fit the new sites?I highly doubt they'll make any new sites that have anything to do with any of the topics I write on the way I write on them so I'll likely need new homes for all...

A few days ago I reposted a comment that another hubber had taken from Google. The comment stated that if you wrote about what you know, your reputation would improve. In fact, if you were writing about issue relating to money or health, unless you had some authority your articles would be graded...
