      You could break it down into two hubs and interlink them.

      You can only place a hub in one category.

      Or...you can publish it in one category and later change it.  I have a few hubs regarding gift buying that I switch around all year long.  Around this time they are under Christmas....later they will be under Mother's Day, then I'll switch and put them under birthdays.  I experiment with categories when they fall into multiple areas.

        What a great idea! I'll add it to my 'there's just too many tips to keep track of' database. Although it definitely is one of the best!

        You do not have to unpublish the hub to change categories. Simply go into editing mode, click Settings on the right-hand side, click on the category and change it.

            It's advisable never to unpublish and republish a hub - just edit it.

            Unpublishing it will will it's age with google, I believe.

              I suppose you mean "will reset its age with Google" or something to that effect.

      Google wouldnt notice you were unpublished for a few minutes!

      You wouldnt lose age/rank etc. Site owners plop pages about all the time doing maintenance type things.

      Entire sites including Hubpages are occasionally "down for maintenance" or "performing scheduled updates"

      In this case it wouldnt be necessary to unpublish, so pretty much moot
