advice on how to organize hub

    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.

      Thank you Healthy Pursuits.  I agree, it seems to be the best way to do it.

    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.

          ah, great idea.  i did not know we could do that.  i will start searching for an article on how to do that.
