    For those of you who don't know about it yet, here is the complete HubPages topic list:

    Those topics with clickable links show up in navigation. Those that aren't clickable don't have 20 articles in the topic yet. It takes 20 articles to make the topic live in the navigation list.

    Scroll through this list, and find the topics you write about. Chances are, you'll find a few subtopics that are not clickable yet. If you find one that's close to 20, why not write your next hub about that topic?

    If this list doesn't get your wheels turning, I don't know what will...

      I had heard this existed but hadn't taken time to explore it. Very, very useful tool! Thanks for the nudge, lisavollrath.

      Thanks for this. I can see how useful it is.
      But would you choose to write a new hub on topics that have not already got 20?  Doesn't that mean that they are not so popular? Is that a good strategy? What do people think?

        Maybe it means they're not popular, or maybe, that nobody is writing about them. If there's not a lot of content online about a topic, and you post some, maybe you have a better chance of ranking well in search. I think if your topic has few articles in it, and you have a lot to say about it, you could very well dominate that subject area.

    Thanks for this Lisa, was puzzled about some of the topic categories.  And that's a great idea about targeting upcoming topics.

    I also did not know about this Tree. It should be a great help in deciding on a sub-topic. Now only if I can find out of a really good FREE keywords site.

    Adventuretravels:  Forget the word Topic, and think of Niche, or microniche.  Those less than 20, 100 whatever does not mean they are bad niches, but not a lot of hub writers write hubs in those areas.  Now, would you like to write about something that can be found on  hub pages 5000 times?
