What is the best niche site for book reviews? I have an article I'd like to move from Discover, but don't know which niche site is the correct one.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Thanks, John. How does a book review relate to a hobby? I guess reading is a hobby, huh?
HobbyLark might be suitable, but my book reviews have been put on Owlcation.
Thanks, Linda. My review is for a book that John Lennon's sister wrote about his/their life as children. It encompasses so much about the hardships they were forced to endure, which explains so much about who John became and why. So would that fit into Owlcation (education)?
It sounds like an interesting article, Shauna. I think it might be suitable for Owlcation, but I don’t think you need to worry too much about choosing the right site. I’ve submitted articles to specific niche sites and the editors have put them on a different site because they think they are a better fit there.
Yeah, me too. I'll start there, but wait a day. I did some minor editing to the article today.
Thanks for the help, Linda. I respect your advice. You and Bev seem to be great advocates for the community.
A biography that involves John Lenin may fit with Spinditty.
I've just submitted it to Owlcation. We'll see what happens!
Yes, Owlcation is a great call. I should point out that Owlcation is a very busy site, so it might take a little bit longer than you're used to compared to other niche sites. If the primary editor thinks it might be a better fit on another site, they will bounce it across the team until it finds a domain that suits it best (:
Yes, it is a tricky one. I guess it depends on what the book is about. I just saw some other book reviews on Hobbylark, so thought maybe.
John, see my recent response to Linda's suggestion. I'm thinking Owlcation may be the site to pitch based on what the book reveals.
It really doesn't matter which niche site you request your article to be moved too. If it is the incorrect one, the editors will automatically move it to the correct niche site. I've had that happen to a few of my articles that I thought were suitable for Dengarden, but the editors felt otherwise and moved them other niche sites.
That's happened to me too, OldRoses, and I'm always surprised at which site(s) they feel are more appropriate. I'll submit to Owlcation and see what happens.
I have been gradually moving my book reviews from my own website to HubPages. Not so sure it's going to work because HP wants more than 750 words, and book reviews are just not that long. I created a separate HP account for this. I'm hoping this works out. Hope things work out for your reviews, too.
The book review I just submitted is 1,345 words. It's already been approved, featured, and moved to Discover, but I want to have it sit on a niche site that will give me more exposure and earnings.
Sounds good. I hope all goes well for you, Shauna.
Thanks, Maria. I haven't heard from staff yet.
My experience is that the niche you choose is considered only a suggestion. If HP like the article but not your niche idea, they just put it in another one. So I just make a guess and don't spend any time worrying about it. I've come to consider it as arbitrary.
Thanks, Paul. That's been my experience as well. I just thought I'd start off at the most logical jumping point but wasn't sure what that would be.
If it's John Lennon's family, I would go for Spinditty. But they often ignore what I say, which is fine by me, as long as it gets on a niche.
Yeah, I thought of that after I hit the "go" button for Owlcation. Hopefully, the editors will swing it over to Spinditty. (What was I thinking???)

Hi. I have been a member for 14 years and have recently come back after about 8 years away. A lot of my hubs are pretty poor especially after being left for so long. Should i start a new account or just delete all the rubbish ones and continue creating content. Thanks

I was under the impression that we could only submit one hub every two weeks for niche sites. I submitted a hub and an editor replied with changes that I needed to make before it could be moved. As I'm making those changes, I have received two emails that another two of my hubs are...

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...

Hey, did anyone else see this niche site? I guess I missed the memo again. There are only 2 articles. The authors don't come up on HP when you click on their names. What's up with that?

Hi,There's one hub of mine that was averaging around 200 views a day and getting plenty of Amazon sales around a year and a half ago, then throughout the first quarters of last year it was stable at around 50 views and fast forward to the present day... for it to cross 15 a day is hoping for too...

I haven't tried to have a plagiarized page removed from Google search since the change to the niches. How do we prove ownership if we no longer have access to webmaster tools for our pages? My recent request was rejected on this basis:'Thanks for reaching out to us.It is unclear to us whether or...
