Have you looked at the Related Hubs on your articles lately? They are poorly related to your topic and should be removed. This is probably pulling down our rankings. There has been various suggestions about how unrelated page links destroy rankings. We have no control over this. I suggest replacing it with a list of Tabs - that is what we select for our pages - not some random rubbish. Do you agree? How do we get it changed?
I don't agree, actually.
The related hubs are simply a function of how well we gear our hubs toward keywords and other triggers for traffic. The choice is ours. Do we write with our own unique brand of communication in mind, or do we craft for attraction to electronic triggers?
The reality of how electronic media works is a cancer to good writing, causing us to be pawns in a game we never wanted to play when we decided to put pen to paper.
The related hubs relate in a few days after hub publishing. I have no problem with it on my hubs. I will check on others to get a better idea about your issue.

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What...

At the bottom of the lens it has related hubs. Is there a way to exclude some hubs from showing there, or to encourage better (more related) ones by limiting the category or using keywords or hand picking them or...

Heads up! As part of a traffic experiment, we changed the number of Hubs listed in the Related Hubs section to eight instead of five. We expect the experiment to last about a week, but wanted to let everyone know that...
