    I was wondering if what do we mean by hub group in the account section. When I look at it all my hubs are in orphan group. What do you mean by that? Any answer? And what is good in creating group?

      Groups are a way for Hub authors to connect and organize Hubs on related topics.

      The FAQ has post on this,

      One benefit of organizing your Hubs into Groups is that the "previous" and "next" hub links that are displayed when a visitor views your Hub will be from the same group.  This makes it more likely that a visitor will read more of your Hubs since they will be on a related topic.

          Yes you can, create a group - say photography, cooking etc.,  and then drag the item into the appropriate group.

    An orphan hub is one that has not been put into a group. You create groups yourself so that you can see your hubs in subcategories.  In mine, I have created groups for topics such as disabilities, mental health and Christian living.  Then I can view the hubs by group.  This is really helpful if I want to find a particular hub or see how well a certain category is doing.  Once the groups are created, there are two ways you can out your hub in a group.  You can click on the Display Options tab on the top right of the hub in edit mode and select a group.  I tend to forget to do this, so I just go to groups and see if there are any orphans.  Then I use the mouse to move the orphan into a group.

            Creating groups will really start to help when you have more than 50+ hubs. It makes it much easier to find your hubs. big_smile

    Hub Groups also have the added benefit of adding links to the Hubs you have on either side of a Hub in a group at the bottom of your Hubs.  Add Hubs to groups, then go to the Hubs, and see the links.  It can increase Hub views by sending readers to similar Hubs you have written within a group.
