I have a very long hub that is broken down into multiple subdivisions, each of which is probably enough for a single hub of its own. I am wondering if it is best to leave it all together, so that people will (hopefully) bookmark it and use it as a single reference, or whether it might be better to divide it up into ten or so hubs, and interlink them all. Any expert advice on how to maximize income?
I thinks dividing it into smaller hubs should be the way. Then, interlink the hubs, you can even organize them in such a way that you create a table of contents in form of links for easier navigation. Visitor don't like to scroll up and down the page so making your hub a long one might be a disadvantage.
Thank you dwachira,
That's what I was thinking too, but then I kind of wanted to hear it from somebody who knows more about this than I do!
I agree with dwachira. I've seen a few hubs organized that way, and they seem to work well. The first hub is the table of contents, and each table entry is a link to one of the other hubs. Good luck with this.
I have some hubs over 5000 words, a couple over 10,000. I thought about breaking them up but I felt I was doing the reader a service by providing all the information in one place. The search engines seem to agree with me.
Thanks for your input - I have already begun to break them up because I think I'd rather be able to click specifically to the reading I want rather than having to scroll, but we'll see how they do. I may end up putting it all back together.
You might put in a "table of contents" with links that will take you to a particular location in the same hub.
I don't know how to do that, but I know it is possible and have read a hub about how to do it.
