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!

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...
