Hey Veteran Hubbers,
Recently I published a new hub and the title of the hub-
New HubPages Members Guide To HubPages
Now, I am curious which category would be best for this hub.
Presently, I have categorized the hub under-
HubPages Tutorials and Community -> Help for New Hubbers -> the HubPages Guide
Now, I am working on another HubPages hub and realized that there might be a better category for the hub above, which is why I am seeking advice.
It can possibly go under several other categories, such as-
HubPages Tutorials and Community -> Overview of Hubpages -> Getting Started with Hubpages
Hubpages Tutorials and Community -> Overview of HubPages -> What is Hubpages
HubPages Tutorials and Community -> Advice and Tips for New Hubbers -> Introduction to HubPages
So, any input would be helpful. The link is below.

When I was new, I looked first to the "Help for New Hubbers" category and also at the "Advice for New Hubbers" one. I think your guide (which is excellent, by the way) falls well into the category you initially put it in, but I would suggest maybe taking out the last section: "the HubPages Guide." You made a great guide, but I would hate to see it buried in that section. I hope this helps.
I guess it's really up to you!
Maybe look at what other hubs are in those categories and see how similar they are to yours?
I wonder how many people actually look for them via the categories. I guess if you want your hub to be noticed first, put it in a category with not many other hubs there, so yours is more likely to be featured.
HubPages Tutorials and Community -> Help for New Hubbers
HubPages Tutorials and Community -> Advice and Tips for New Hubbers
Either of these would work for your hub, I think - just leave off the last selection, as brittanytodd suggested.
I sometimes only go "two deep" into a category, usually because the last sections don't fit exactly, while the broader category fits better.

The HubPages Tutorials and Community is now totally unuseable since all the game posts from the sandpit were dumped in there.
