    Good move. I can see it working to an extent.

    I guess there might be a small gold rush now for premium usernames, since they will be used as subdomains .

    Yeah, you have to move your Hubs over to the subdomain yourself.....Hubpages won't do it for you. Thankfully, it's very easy. You just go into your Hub admin area and select "move to subdomain." I made the change myself a few weeks ago and I've already seen a HUGE improvement in traffic.

    is it necessary to move the hubs to subdomains?
    I mean, I am not sure if it will improve the ranking, but I wouldnt like losing rank, as it doesnt look my you can revert back to subdir if subdomains doesnt go well...

    No, it isn't absolutely necessary to move your hubs to a subdomain, but it has definitely improved my traffic. I haven't been keeping up with my Hubs in a long time so I'm not even sure where they're ranking right now....nor do I care.

    Most of my hubs have moved to their pre-panda position in the rankings since moving to a subdomain, although it did take Google a little while to index all the new URLs. If you just use hubs for backlinks it doesn't really matter. If hubs are part of your income it is definitely a must.
