This will become more and more relevant as new niches are purchased and become active.
Let's say that I publish a post on the first day of a rewards period. Exactly half way into the rewards period, I change all three niche tags to new, more appropriate niches that hadn't existed when I first made my post.
How are niche owner rewards affected? I can see a few possibilities:
- The original three niches receive all the rewards for that period, but the next reward period gets assigned to the new niches.
- The original three niches and the three new niches get niche owner rewards applied 50/50 because they were the active tags for half of the reward period.
- The three new niches take all the rewards for that period because they are only calculated on the last day of the reward period.
Similar questions arise when posts are removed from a niche by either the owner or the author.
