Anyone know which are the highest and lowest traffic niche sites?
From my own stats I’m seeing ToughNickel and Bellatory do pretty well while Letterpile and Delishably get much less traffic, though it could just be me.
Owlcation and Spinditty are best for me.
Owlcation, Ballatory, Paired Life. I think it depends on one's articles. We would need hubpages to tell us which site did the most traffic, and it's not likely they would tell us.
The majority of my articles are on either Spinditty or ReelRundown. My Spinditty stuff generally does better than my RR stuff.
I'd tell you my Spinditty stuff outdoes everything else I've done, and that would be true, but I've also been mostly focused very specifically on that niche, and am probably more qualified in that than in any other. So I'm not sure my answer is very helpful. You should definitely go for whatever it is which excites you the most, but you should probably do the most work where you're both enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
I guess you want to know which niche sites are best, not best for each person who posts here. You can get numbers from several sources. Here are some posted by similarweb.com:
Owlcation is at the top: 6.11 million page views per month
There are other sites I did not look up but I think they are rated lower than these.
I cannot vouch for the veracity of those numbers but they look reasonable. Even with those numbers, be sure to concentrate on a site that you know a lot about, even if it is one of those with less traffic.
Glad I could help.
Nice to know. Thank you. I guess we are all going to focus our efforts there...
That's interesting that the highest performing niche site is owlcation. My owlcation hubs are my worst performers. I can vouch for Dengarden being a middling performer. Almost all of my hubs are on Dengarden and most are just middling performers. Thankfully a few are superstars and keep the $$ rolling in.
I would be very hesitant about writing any articles based on these numbers. If you were to get a lot of traffic from Dengarden it would be a lot better than a little from Owlcation, right?
All of my articles are on Pethelpful. The only thing I could publish on Bellatory would be a satire.
Numbers aren't everything if you are interested in earnings, however. There are many topics where you can get a lot of views and earn next to nothing, and others where you get less views but earn more.
Mr. Goodman is a wise old timer around these parts. Before you get caught up in more complicated things, make certain you're formatting your pages to be as visually appealing as possible.
Probably the single best thing I have learned about writing and publishing things online is you have to break up the text into lots of very small paragraphs.
Big honkin chunks of text make the person trying to read your page lose interest. It's hard to keep reading when you lose your place due to a gigantic honkin glob of text.
The text could be the most fantastic text in the history of text. Doesn't matter. Break up them paragraphs into small chunks. I like three sentence chunks, myself, but if three looks too small for a paragraph, I could do more for a chunk.
Great advice! I do find myself throwing out massive paragraphs. Not really SEO or reader friendly I suppose.
It took me a long time to realize that. I had to make much shorter paragraphs, people don't have the attention spans to read long ones.
Are you talking about Amazon sales or CPM for a particular subject? Since HP pays by number of impressions, numbers are important here.
(And, when numbers go down, so do Amazon sales: not everyone is going to by, so if 10,000 people read your article a day there are a lot more sales than if 1000 people read your article per day.)

I pretty much have the same amount of traffic everyday but last week 5 of my hubs were moved to niche sites and since then I've has less half the traffic as normal. What could cause that?

I am uncertain if this same situation has happened to other writers, but I am wondering about why it seems hubpages has become a second-class citizen in its own network. I've written articles here for the last decade and been happy with it for the most part. In the last year or so,...

Over the past few days, traffic to my biggest and most successful niche account has dropped by 37%. My other niche account fell apart last year and hasn't recovered. Now, this account, which did horribly all fall but picked up after Christmas, has dropped overnight. My overall traffic is currently...

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?

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 know a lot of you are curious about how the niche sites are doing. Recently, 21 of my articles were moved over. Some were edited, some were not. Most did not have ads, but of the ones that did, some were left in place, others were converted to in text links to products.I've been...
