What are the real advantages of submitting my content to network sites? Does this affect traffic or revenue in any way? I am thinking of transferring some of my featured articles to network sites.
At one time, there were many "generalist" sites like HubPages.com, where you could write articles about anything and everything, and earn income.
Then Google changed its algorithm to favour specialist websites. Overnight, generalist websites were largely excluded from Google's search results. HubPages lost over 70% of its income.
HubPages.com was no longer a viable business. Something had to be done. The solution was to create specialist sites by mining the HubPages sites for all the best articles. Those are the network sites. Some have done well and some not so well - but the important point to note is, they are where the income is. HubPages.com is just a slush pile which the editors monitor to find good articles for the network sites.
You can definitely try to have your articles accepted by a niche site. Be aware that the standards are typically much higher than the main HP site, and you may be turned down or asked for extensive edits.
You are right, I tried submitting an article to a network site, but it got rejected. This is very difficult.
I took a quick look at some of your Hubs. They are too short. You need to aim for 1,500 words.
In the ones I looked at, you had not credited your photos. You had no embedded Youtube videos.
Finally, take a look at the Hubs already on the niche sites. For instance, there's no point in writing a short, bland Hub about African love birds if there's already a similar article on PetHelpful, covering the same information. You'll need to find a different angle.
It is basically necessary to get articles on the network sites, as there will be much more potential for traffic from the search engines. They will automatically be submitted unless they are rejected for revision. The downside (in my experience) is that it takes much longer to get an article published cause it has to featured & published to a niche site. The upside is that the quality of the articles are better cause it weeds out incomplete or low quality articles.
More traffic and more earnings too, if that's your thing! Your articles will basically have a much higher profile, if featured.

Hello Hubbers,I had submitted my hub to be considered for exemplore.com. The next day I received an email, saying that it was eligible for owlcation.com along with some recommendations to improve my hub. I did make the required changes and submitted the article for owlcation. I haven't heard from...

What will happen if I submitted an article in Hubpages Network Sites? Will my articles become more searchable or I will get more traffic? What are the benefits of that for the articles? Thank you.

Is there an easy way to know which of my articles are on one of Hubpages Network Sites? I've been contacted a few times about articles being put there, but at the time, I wasn't really participating and didn't keep record. Now, I'm interested.
