I am going to go through my first 20 hubs and try to make sure they are categorized right. I remember reading somewhere that Google is more likely to find you if you are categorized properly. Is there a place to see where Google prefers to have things categorized, or do you just have to test it out.
For example, pictures of bug bites. I have it under personal health conditions and self help, would it better under diseases and conditions? What about a hub about treating such bites?
I have the same trouble. I have several articles that can be put in more than one category. What I do is find the category that is less competitive and try it for 3 months. If traffic doesn't seem to be increasing than I put it in the next less competitive category. If that don't work I change the title to fit the less competitive category.
Look at the amount of hubs in each category at the top of your hub.
Well, I switched a hub into a different category. I have seen noticeable traffic increases on that hub. Not sure if moving its category helped or if it was something else I tinkered with. Thanks for the tips, most of my hubs are still pretty dismal. I know I have only been around a few months, and my hubs need to mature, but I still cant help tinkering with them.
I have many that could fit well into more than one category -- I wish we could put them in more than one category at a time. Thanks for the idea of finding the category with the fewest hubs. I'll try it. Thanks!

There was no warning associated with this.Might be worth applying some kind of alert (including pages that are categorized to just one level of a hierarchy).I know that...

How do I get one of those cool hub sub-categorizing tools that everyone seems to have. You know, the tool that breaks the hubs into categories like life, relationships, food, etc... I've looked for it in the helps and can't seem to find it. Be a friend
