What's a hub page?

    Yea it gives an answer at the help button but even I, who knows zero about hubs, knows the definition is inaccurate, misleading, ambiguous and leaves out a lot of information.  Let me get you started.  A hub is a single article (not multiple articles), it is a single independent page (and not like a website with multiple pages as the help button would have you believe).  A website has multiple pages in a tier arrangement and all pages are on the same subject.  Hubs are single pages on different subjects (and they don't have tiers).  Is this correct so far?
          And what about the questions that other people ask and others answer and what about...

    A hubpage is a well written article, decorated with nice pictures, videos, links, RSS feeds, and revenue capusules.

    Wow fast, thanks.  A single article.  Yes?  Single Page?

    Yes. Since Hubpages is the name of this beatiful community... a hub is a single article...

    As far as I know.. there are more than 100K hubs published already big_smile

    The FAQ entry on this says pretty clearly, I think, that each hub is a separate page.

    Maddie, I can see where he's getting confused. Here's what is says:

    "A Hub is a rich web page that you write and design. Each time you want to write another article, you'll create another Hub. It's just like in a website, which has multiple web pages. "

    It's that last sentence which is confusing.  It would be much clearer if it said something like "Your collection of Hubs is like a website, with multiple Hubs instead of multiple web pages.".   

    It's the juxtaposition of "create another Hub" followed by "It (which sounds like it refers to the Hub just mentioned) that's causing the confusion.

           Don't think I like your 4th paragraph but your third one hit the nail on the head.  I think it be simplified even more...  actually this brings up another confusion... it implies the hubs you write are somehow joined together ("like a website with multiple pages").  Are the hubs joined together?  I'll bet they are not.  Then why do they even have that sentence in there.  Just simply delete it.  But this is only part of the problem as my original question indicates:
          I notice on my one and only hub there is dialogue between other people
          what is a hub page?
          I notice the full dialogue isn't even on the hub page it goes to my blog
          what's a hub page?
        I notice that even though it goes to my blog it shows none of my blog posts
         what is a hub page?
         I notice...
          Why are none of these issues addressed (under the help button or where ever) and where can I get the FULL entire scoop  (am I making this harder then it is?  Yes probably)
          Thanks Marisa (hey you're not the same Marisa that hangs out at friend feed are you?)
