I was wondering if what do we mean by hub group in the account section. When I look at it all my hubs are in orphan group. What do you mean by that? Any answer? And what is good in creating group?
Groups are a way for Hub authors to connect and organize Hubs on related topics.
The FAQ has post on this,
One benefit of organizing your Hubs into Groups is that the "previous" and "next" hub links that are displayed when a visitor views your Hub will be from the same group. This makes it more likely that a visitor will read more of your Hubs since they will be on a related topic.
Oh i see, thank you for making this things clear But how can I reorganize it again since all my hubs are group in one. can I separate them and put them on other group?
An orphan hub is one that has not been put into a group. You create groups yourself so that you can see your hubs in subcategories. In mine, I have created groups for topics such as disabilities, mental health and Christian living. Then I can view the hubs by group. This is really helpful if I want to find a particular hub or see how well a certain category is doing. Once the groups are created, there are two ways you can out your hub in a group. You can click on the Display Options tab on the top right of the hub in edit mode and select a group. I tend to forget to do this, so I just go to groups and see if there are any orphans. Then I use the mouse to move the orphan into a group.
Thank you carola for the clarification. I thought orphan hubs will put all my earnings to other people as donation. lol I am getting crazy that time! haha now it is clear to me
LOL! You're not crazy. It took me a while to figure out the group thing. Glad you figured it out.
Yes Sheila, hahaha Now I have grouped all my hubs haha
Hub Groups also have the added benefit of adding links to the Hubs you have on either side of a Hub in a group at the bottom of your Hubs. Add Hubs to groups, then go to the Hubs, and see the links. It can increase Hub views by sending readers to similar Hubs you have written within a group.

Hi everyone! Today we released an update to the Hub Groups interface in My Account. The new interface closely matches the About the Author UI and should be familiar to many of you.

I have seen a few mentions of putting our articles into groups but when I went to put in a heading I found myself stopping because I wasn't sure what to put there. Do we go broad categories ie: foodie:healthOr use keywords for each group title.ie: food: recipes, cooking, preserving Or niche...

As mentioned in a couple of forum threads recently, Hub Groups (the "More in this Series" module on Hubs) is officially being retired. Groups were created to help Hubbers connect Hubs belonging to a series (e.g., a Hub with multiple parts), making it easy for readers to access the other...

In "Manage Groups," I have several (all?) of my hubs listed. I categorized them before writing them, so I don't understand why they're categorized as "orphan."My question is, how do I get my poor hubs out of orphan status?Thanks!
