I've written several 1000-1300 hubs and they have the featured status, but none have been transferred to a niche site yet. I'm glad that HP has implemented changes for search engine optimization, but sometimes it's unfortunate because I know I am losing potential views and earnings. 7 years ago I could publish an article and get several hundred views or more overnight practically.
I don't know if Holidays have slowed things down or I have done something wrong. But I don't like to do things in vain.
I don't know, but when I look at your profile I only see 78 hubs and a lot of them are on the niche site Levelskip.com
Yes? This is not the only account I have written on.
Well you said “none have been transferred to a niche site yet.” Since you have a few on LevelSkip, this isn’t true.
Featured only means acceptable, nothing else. If your hub has not been moved there may be a lot of things you can improve. You can start a new thread under "improving your article" if you can handle the criticism.
Thngs have changed a lot in 7 years.
Well, apparently a couple just got sent to the niche site. It must have just taken longer than it did previously. The issue how have is: How do I know if I have to wait for it to be reviewed or if I have to edit something? I don't want to delay too long because I'll lose potential views and my content will go too waste.
I think one of my hubs did not get sent to a niche site because it says "Submitting this article will not count toward your submission limit of 1 article per 14 days, because an editor recently asked you to make changes to this article. Nevertheless, please take the time necessary to edit your article as requested before submitting it!"
How do I know what to change? I know how to view changes that the editors make, but I don't know how to view what changes I need to make for them to be accepted to a niche site.
I've written 43 hubs in the last 10 months and over 90% have been featured and accepted. And I am glad. But quite frankly, I never knew where to check when changes to a hub were required. I basically gave up on them because I did not know what to do.
Sometimes I make typos or use too many keywords. Sometimes my vision fails me.
Are you getting the emails from the editors? They always tell you what you need to change. It’s usually a personal addition below the canned section, so you might have missed it if you didn’t read the entire email.
On the other hand, if you’re not getting any emails from the editors, then check your spam folder.
I am afraid I do not see an email in my junk or regular box. I am unsure what to do now. There was a typo in the title, but I don't know if that was the problem. My hub is getting a decent amount of views and it's not even on the niche site yet.
I am pretty sure if it gets passed over the first time you will have to submit it manually. Even if you submitted another a few days ago I think you should go ahead and try it, and you will either get the message that it is too soon, or you will be allowed to submit it because an editor looked at it and wanted to approve it.
I made some minor changes. I never submit a hub to a network site because (as far as I know) they are looked at by default after publishing them. But I guess in this particular case I have to do it manually as you said.
If it's a new hub, then wait for it to be chosen. Use your allotment of 1 per 14 days to submit other older hubs. Most hubs that meet the stellar guidelines will be moved within a week of publishing.
Yes, I agree on the new stuff, but your hubs from years ago, even if they do not get much traffic, can be polished up a little and submitted to a niche site. The hubs moved to niche sites will have an improved page rank, which might lead to more page views.
You should fix those typos. They will keep your hub from getting moved. You can still edit the hub after you submit it, if you do it quick enough before an editor starts looking at it, although this is not recommended. Of course the best thing is to check and re-check all your content BEFORE you submit. I proofread my hubs multiple times. Sometimes ten or 20 times. It's worth the effort.
I think bolding and italicizing was the main issue actually. But yes, I fixed some typos in one of the hubs. I proofread my hubs a few times. Fortunately, HubPages is not ridiculously strict like Constant Content. At least HubPages standards are higher than they were years ago, though. I recall using that rating system on HP & I saw hubs that were giant blocks of texts with no capitalization or organization.

Hi,Do more experienced Hubbers have any useful tips for getting your article moved to a niche site? I kept seeing advice that goes something like "make sure you write a high-quality article" but it just seems so vague to me. I have 9 articles now and the only one that was moved to a niche...

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 do not understand the method of sending hubs to a niche site. How does it work? I tried sending my 1st hub to Bellatory.com but they rejected it, saying I had to make changes. It was silly on my part though, I had no idea back then, I had newly joined and had simply submitted it, without...

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?
