    After a newly published hub was moved to DenGarden the ranking for my third most important keyword jumped from page 7 to #3. The hub was on for 2 days I guess and it's been on Dengarden for 5 hours now (indexed for 5 hours on Google). Rankings will fluctuate a lot, but I think this is a huge difference. I have not personally compared ranking changes before. We all know the niche sites do better, but I didn't expect it to be on this scale.

    Maybe this serves as a reminder to get your old evergreen hubs "niche site worthy" and move them across. Not all niche sites are as strong, but I'm sure they are all better than the hubpages parent domain.

      Sound advice. Updating articles is crucial and evergreening them recommended. I'm not as savvy as you Mr Lobo when it comes to extracting data and whatnot but I know from the growth I've witnessed with my own hubs over these past 18 months or so that the niche sites are gold.
      I'm as keen as ever to write new articles, keep the pot boiling so to speak, but whenever I've spare time I clean up any messy hubs.

        Yeah exactly, writing new ones is important too. Age of the URL matters to some extent. That's why I have put on hold editing some older hubs that are not on the niche sites yet. I have the intention to publish at least 5 more new hubs first, so that next summer can be better than what it was this year. This year was gold smile

    I submitted an "old" evergreen article to a niche site Delishably and it was expected right away. It is doing better. Of course, I don't have the details like Brandon's but it's ranking better. With that, I am now determined to move an "old" article or new over to a niche site every two weeks. I have set my calendar as a reminder. I am looking forward to the positive changes.

    This is encouraging news. I try to get my articles moved over so hopefully eventually I will see results.
