    Hi there,

    I am starting to write hubs on Google Plus, but noticed that there weren't really any categories that they could call home!

    The closest I could find was Google Buzz, which was discontinued in December 2011.

    My suggestion would be to add a new category for Google Plus in the following area:

    Technology > Internet and the Web > Social Networking > Google Plus. You could also just rename the Google Buzz hub area to Google Plus (and update meta descriptions, title tags etc.)

    Thanks for listening,

      Hi Simone and Paul! I think this would be a very good idea. Google+ is gradually becoming more and more important.

        I'd second that suggestion as well.

        Topic changes usually take anywhere from a couple hours to a day to show up on the site, but the Google+ Topic should show up immediately in the HubTool. So if you want to move your existing Hubs or start a new Hub in the Google+ Topic, you should be able to do. Sorry for the delay!
