I've just drafted a long (>1400 words) hub with all the trimmings: tables, two videos, three photos, a poll and a quiz.
The result is quite a lot of scrolling.
What are the pros and cons of using a table of contents capsule?
I know that HP recommends that links are integrated into text and that lots of hyperlinks grouped together is bad. Im also worried how the great-and-all-powerful Google would view so many links grouped together in the second capsule of my hub
Is the easier navigation trumped by the risks, or should I just leave it out and let readers scroll through after writing a paragraph saying what the hub will cover?
Thanks in advance!
Thanks for asking that question Rhys. Ive created a table of content for a few of my hubs, but it takes a fair amount of work and I still can't see if that made any difference in views or hits and there was never a comment on the fact that these hubs had a table of content..
I used a 'Table of Contents' in one of my Hubs in case anyone wanted to go directly to a certain section. If you would like, you may check it at:
It may help you decide whether you want to enter one into yours. I received positive comments but I do not know whether they were on the entire Hub or not.

I really liked the links capsule until I clicked on one to test it and figured out that it opened in the same window. Is it possible to make it an option to open a new window like when you are adding links within the...
