Niche transfers going much slower lately?

    I've had four articles receiving constant organic traffic that usually would have been transferred to LevelSkip within a day or so of submitting them.

    Anyone else feeling like transfers are moving slower, or am I just impatient and perturbed by the lower earnings due to being in Discovery limbo?

      I'd say longer than usual. I have one that I've been waiting on for 4 weeks, a few been waiting on for a couple weeks and one that I submitted a week ago. Just submitted a couple more too. My experience is it typically takes a couple weeks but it seems to vary; sometimes it's immediate.

        Soapboxie always makes me wait for a month or so before I can get anything transferred over to it, and most of the time I just forget I've even written an article for it because it takes so long. The worst is when you manually submit something, forget about it, and find out months later it is still being considered while trying to manually submit another, LOL!

          That actually eases my mind a little bit that it can take as long as a month for some sites. I couldn't really remember how long I've waited in the past and for which sites.

          I do recall totally forgetting about submitting an article and then getting a notice about it seemingly out of the blue and then I recall I submitted it. I recently started keeping track of articles I submit and when I submit them so I know when I can submit again.

      Yes! I have definitely noticed this over all of my accounts. I usually have stuff moved over to niche within 1-3 days but now I'm going on weeks. I'm thinking they may be trying to beef up Discover with higher quality content while trying to tighten up the niche sites. I'm okay on earnings so not really annoyed by it, but I find it interesting.

    All I can say is that getting them moved over " within a day or so" is extremely fast in my experience. Rarely has that happened for me. Normally a number of days, even 2 or 3 weeks isn't that unusual.

      It only happens with my LevelSkip articles, but it seems the trend has ceased this month, and I'll be waiting on them as well.

    PaulGoodman, I'm with you in this. From day one of submission, it takes two weeks for consideration by HubPages editors.                                            But if an article is exceptional very good, the editors just takes it up to niche.

    I think it depends on the niche. Some are more proactive than others.

      I tend to agree that this is the case.

      This actually explains a lot to me. It just seems to depend on the site.

    I’ll check on this tomorrow. Should be at a consistent pace.

      Thanks, Paul. I was beginning to wonder if my article was rejected.

      That is welcome news.                                               But I'm sure some articles when manually submitted seems to wait longer than the 2 weeks. This me thinks is an inconsistency.

          It's a figure of speech. Sort of means, "I can't believe it!"

    For me it takes a few days to a week.

    Yeah, TurboFuture and WeHaveKids have been pretty good about getting articles moved quickly, but otherwise I'm finding that niche sites are taking tons longer than they used to. Maybe that means they have a lot more articles coming at them these days though too!

    It takes 1-2 days for one of my articles to be moved to HobbyLark. However, it takes much, much longer for an article to be moved to Owlcation.

    I submitted an older article to Letterpile yesterday and it accepted was moved today.

    It seems some niche sites receives more articles than others for editing, and others less.                                That said, it would determine the rate at which articles were publish. In other words, the more articles line up and wait on niche, they take longer to publish.                                       Seriously, its not a question of an article publish on HubPages. On Hubpages, it takes a minimum of 2 or 3 days.                                     More so, if a very first article is so exceptional good, hubpages just moves it to a niche site within the time frame of editing.                                            I've also noted from personal experience that any of my story that's very good goes straight to a niche site on first time.                                        Nevertheless, re-editing an old feature writing and submiting to a niche will remind me of late Jimmy Cliff's: 'Sitting here in limbo.'
