I currently am thinking about diversifying. I have two hubs that attract most views, and while I am submitting to niche every two months, there are some that have never done very well here.
I would like to create a niche blog (and am thinking of going through wordpress and ipage), but am also looking for other sites to drop my low page view/won't fit in my blog niche sites.
It appears that the payout for adsense is $100 and I am afraid I won't get it if I just drop one article or two on those other sites.
The payout for Adsense is $100 but you only have one Adsense account, so it doesn't matter how many different sites you post on - all the income from all those sites will flow to that single Adsense account.
More important, I think, is to look at what those other sites earn. Most of us have tried other content sites and been disappointed. You need to ask yourself whether the effort of writing on other sites is going to be worth your time.
It sounds like you've already grasped that to be successful, a website must specialise. HubPages is moving to a niche site structure because they've realised that an anything-and-everything site can never succeed in the new climate. All the other big content sites had the same realisation long ago, and most closed down as a result.
So when you're looking at other generalist content sites, you're looking at sites run by one or two individuals, who are content with slim profit margins, and that's why they're still running. I have articles on a few of the surviving ones and they don't make money. I have been recommending DailyTwoCents as they started out really well, but Nate has just reported his articles aren't doing well there - if he's finding that, then it's probably not worthwhile either.
So, my advice would be - if you've got Hubs that don't get much traffic here, they will get even less on any of the other sites, so don't move them. If some have such low traffic that they're unFeatured, pick one site and move them there, just for the sake of it - but don't expect much.

I just left a thread where the main complaint was that squidoo writers were going to bring the quality down. But what surprises me is not the complaining but the lack of analysis of the big picture. I started on hubpages years ago and left because of the articles that were being posted....

Arts and craft user driven content sites.I'm thinking there are a few user driven content sites which focus on arts and craft topics. Does anyone know of any? What is your opinion of the sites if you do.

Hopefully someone from Hubpages HQ can look into this.I believe that those of us that are using a hosted account with Adsense are not getting any ad revenue on impressions from the niche sites.I base this on the fact that my daily impressions on Hubpages vs Adsense differ by a factor of about 100....

I just read on another thread that we must add the niche sites to our AdSense account. I don't know anything about this and don't know how to do it. Could someone please give step-by-step directions on how to get this accomplished? I don't remember hearing about this when the niche sites started....

Hi everyone. I've been putting some work in writing quality articles the last few months, all my articles are approved as featured but earnings are still pretty low. I have earned a total of $1+ in two months, and with that speed it will take years to reach checkout. I have both Hubpages and...

Do you write for sites other than Hubpages?Do you write for other content sites or just Hubpages? How many different sites do you write for and which ones do you like best?
