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 hubpages.com 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
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.

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...

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...

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

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....

Just curious, but does anyone have experience with this? How'd you do it? Did you tell Google the article moved somehow or do anything else fancy? Or did you just copy, paste, delete from HubPages, and wait for Google to catch up?Im guessing there might be some duplicate content penalties from...

The chart showed a loss of about 55% of the traffic on Hubpages in the last 6 months.I also looked at the traffic trends on some of the niche sites, and they don't seem to be making up for the loss.In fact the bounce rate seemed higher than that of Hubpages.What are the old timers thoughts about...
