Suppose I am writing a hub on cars. But not just cars, I am writing about General Motors and how they are handling the recession, or someting like that. Is it better for me to keep my hub under the topic of Automotive? Or should I go all the way to Auto Crisis? Like so: Automotive → Auto Industry → Auto Crisis? Why?
I guess it all depends on how specific you want to be. The topic fits pretty good in the auto crisis cat. so you could put it there. I tend to stay broad because I never know for sure where to stick certain hubs. That way if someone is searching categories, mine won't get overlooked for being under the wrong heading. I dunno...I hate picking categories....
Ya, I feel the same way. But I was wondering if some people look under more specific topics for hubs they want to read on...maybe?
You should be specific as possible when you are sure.
That will be lot better for your hub and you than general stuff.
Though thats of more help to people searching from hub Search only..i think
Hope that helps
I used to think that it might be better to put it under the broad category because it'll get more views or something. Not sure why I thought that, but it's not true. If it has a category that fits, use it!
You'll have a much better chance of people reading it if they go, for example, to the Auto Crisis section. If they just went to automotive, well there are hundreds of hubs each day on that topic. Your single hub would get lost in the crowd!
Another cool thing that happens is if your article gets really 'hot', then it will be featured on the automotive page under the hot automotive hubs for the main category.

Should these categories be listed the same or does this give your hub a bigger viewing area? Such as a hub I wrote may be under the topic of creative writing at the top but on the side in display options/hub group I...

I'm finishing up a Hub I've been working on for like 4-5 days now, and I realize that I could probably separate it into 2 because it has become more in depth than I thought. I'm feeling really good about it, and I...

Newb question: What would be the best category for an original piece of humorous writing? I was looking through the different topic categories, and I didn't seem to see an obvious choice. Thanks.Joan Hall
