Why isnt my hub showing up as a related hub?

    I published a hub today about parrots. When I published, the related hubs show Brazilian wax, Brazilian movies, and some parrot hubs by other authors. Last year I published an article about "How to exercise your parrot" but it is not showing up as related.
    Why?

      You can always put it as your "Previous" hub if you place it under the same topic as your other hub and it will show up under your latest hub.  Seems like I've seen some of my own hubs show up under my hub too.

        Thanks, I made sure it was, but I still think that "Brazilian bikini wax" is a horrible choice for a related hub. Someone who wants to read about parrots is probably not interested in this subject.

    Only other authors Hubs will appear in that feature.

      Thanks relache. Usually there are two of mine, as well as the other hubbers articles on there. Are the "related hubs" under your hubs always from others?

        In categories where there are not many other hubs to choose from, my own hubs will often show up as related hubs, assuming, of course, they are actually related. If I write on a topic which has lots of articles, usually the related hubs are from other authors.

        There have definitely been periods here at HP when the related hubs algo was glitchy, and would latch onto a key word whether or not it was relevant to an article. In your case, for example, the word "Brazilian." An article about parrots would have related hubs about bikini waxing and tourist destinations but not any about parrots, birds, or pets. I'm not saying that there is a glitch at the moment, but it has happened before.

          I think the glitch is back in town. I guess I need to look up a hub on how to throw a welcome back party for your favorite glitch.

            I just checked about four or five of my own hubs, and all of them had relevant related hubs shown. I also checked some of yours, including the Brazilian Parrot Names hub, and it now has all related hubs about parrots. Looks like the glitch is gone, or could it just be you are somehow having different elated hubs show up than I am?

              Thanks, I just checked mine. All parrots, and I never did get around to reading how to get a Brazilian bikini wax in DC! Even if my hub is not on there, I am not going to complain anymore.
              (So now I need to do another search and find a good "glitch going-away party." The fun never ends.)

    Did you add your new Hub to the group with the other parrot hub?

      I had forgotten this and did it so that it would show up on "previous-next". It still does not show up as a related hub though.

      Recently I've discovered that not only do you need to select the proper group on the hub itself under display options while in edit mode, then, you need to go into (MyAccount, Groups) under a like category, and physically drag the hub either above or below your other hubs that you want to see at the bottom of yours.

      Related hubs by other authors generally show up below the two with pictures that are yours that way.

    It was hard to find the answer in the FAQ because the name of the feature has changed, but admin has let that section get really out-dated.

      That must be a software glitch, since the category is parrots but that program picked Brazilian bikini wax as a related hub. I appreciate you finding that for me--I really try to read all the FAQ!

    Go into edit mode and check your display options to see whether you selected a choice for a group.

      I already had, but the bot was still picking "Brazilian bikini wax in DC" as a related hub.Since last night though it has switched to all parrot hubs, which in my mind, at least, are a little more related.

        Try the top of your stats page where it says "Groups" on the right. Move/drag it into a different group.
