    The HubPages tree ( appears to contain 636 empty topics of the total 7156 topics that are available. So, that's about 9%. There are 474 topics with just 1 Hub and 350 topics with just 2 Hubs. That's together a potential of almost 1500 Hubs in almost empty topics.

    So, when you're looking for targets, or topics or you're in a writers block, there might be some clues to find food for thought.

    When you're able to fill (almost) empty topics with real quality Hubs it will also boost your Hub(ber) scores.

      That is an amazing list of hubs waiting to be written.  Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for sharing.  I didn't remember how to get to the list of hubs.  I notice that many of the subcategories don't have clickable links even though they have several hubs in them.  I'd like to see what others are writing about a topic before I write a hub.

      A (sub)category must have at least 20 hubs in order that the link is clickable.

        That's true. I don't know how to enter this subcategory. Maybe can HP give a suggestion?

      You can start with the 0 Hubs topics to avoid this problem smile

        LOL I'm not great at writing about subjects I'm not very familiar with, but thanks.

    This is a great guide that I had no idea was even available. It gives you a perfect idea of which hub topics are saturated and which ones don't even exist on here.

    My niche could do with the topic "Body Language". Many of my hubs are presently categorized  under

                Personal Health Information and Self-Help┬╗
                                         Recovery from Health Problems

    The fundamental idea is that if you move better, i.e. are more aware of your body language, many health issues can be resolved. But to my surprise, the category "Body Language" on its own doesn't exist on The Complete List of Topics on HubPages. There is only one single entry for "Body Language" for cats:

    Cats and Cat Breeds (1,274 Hubs)
    Cat Accessories and Beds (50 Hubs)
    Cat Behavior (178 Hubs)
    Cat Body Language (22 Hubs)

    No body language for people? Oh dear, no wonder my services are so desperately needed.

    1. Should I change my hubs categories to "Body Language"? I probably have more than 20. And if so,
    2. how do I go about it?
    3. Or will I get more views by leaving them under health?
    4. Or could "Body Language" be listed 3 times, under Education, Linguistics and Health?

      It appears so, yes. That's somewhat odd indeed.
      Your views won't increase by moving your Hubs around. It only might affect the Hub score.
      But you can look to a topic closest by your Hub, which is the most empty. When a topic has more than 20 Hubs it becomes clickable.

    Oh wow! Thanks! This is really helpful. Now we can tell which topics would be better to write for. Just something odd I noticed on there... We have 2 hubs on the topic of the Flying Spaghetti Monster! big_smile

    Here's one of the graphs of my Hub about HP scores. The typical score of a Hub will be about 2 points higher in sparsely occupied topics. This doesn't look much, but don't forget it's an effortless increase! By the way, the large vertical spread is mainly caused by variation in 'quality' and 'feedback'.

    Thank you Buildreps, but is it possible to introduce a missing topic like "Body Language"?

      Jayne Lancerposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      I requested a couple of subcategories that I felt were missing some time ago using the forums, but - for reasons I won't discuss here - found contacting the team directly ( more worthwhile. As far as I know, Christy Kirwan is the staff member you should address. Include in your request a list of hubs that you feel would fit the new subcategory, which should amount to at least 20.

    One thing to remember is that the topic trees in HP are very useful for search engine optimization. They provide built-in keywords that help our content get spotted by search engines.

    I don't know if the site regularly updates the topics or not - it's a rich list, but I have often tried to find the right term at the granular levels and not found one, even though my sense is that it's something searched for on the Internet.
