I have a lot of hubs, and choosing which ones to place on the carousel is difficult, especially since it is in alphabetical order. Is there any way to include choices like groups or topics like the stats page has, so that it is easier to find the hubs once I decide what I want to feature? Don't know if that make sense, so for example, if I decide I want to highlight summer hubs, I can then choose the group where I placed then, so the list is smaller and the summer hubs are easier to find.
Good question and good idea, Millionaire Tips. Just a few minutes ago, I had the hardest time trying to find a particular hub to send a client. I went up and down the stat list twice and kept missing it. And I only have 80 hubs. As I was searching for it, I thought about hubbers who have tons of hubs and wondered how they find them. It was much easier when hubs were in order of hubscore because I had an idea of where they were, based on performance.
I just thought of an easier way to find them by using the profile page, recalling that hubs are in order of "date published." So, by going down the list, you can gauge where the hub might fall based on when it was first published. However, this would still present some difficulty if you have hundreds of hubs.
Edit: I know you were speaking specifically about the carousel. But I think this can extend to making it easier to find our hubs in general.
If you group your articles by general topic on the "groups" page, it is very easy to find articles because you can use these groups on your stats pages to find them. I also keep each article in a word processing program by groups (here they show up in alphabetical order) and also on a spreadsheet that lists titles and date published. These also are in groups.
For example, if I want to find my article that reviews the pros and cons of RV slide rooms, I go to my RV review group to find it. If I want to find my article about traveling with guns, I go to my RV Safety group, etc.
If I forget the exact title of a hub, I can look at my lists to find it.
Without using these groups, it would be impossible to find specific hubs if you have many of them. Hope this helps.
Yes, this helps. I've never used the group function. You reminded me that I do have trouble remembering hub titles when I'm changing the carousel and looking for specific hubs. I will check out the group page, thanks.
Thanks TimeTraveler2. I do use groups, and I was hoping to have the groups function on the profile page. But you're right, I can look at the stats page, filter by groups, create my list, and then go to the profile page and place the hubs on the carousel.
I do not know about "tons", but I do have over 300, and the way I find the one I am looking for is by using the search function in Moxilla. A little window opens up in the bottom of the screen and I just type in a word or the title I am looking for.
I am not sure about how to do this with others like IE or Chrome.
CTRL+F brings up the search function in most browsers.
I do use the CTRL F, but that only works if you remember the title. I wanted to make sure I didn't forget hubs in particular topics. I will do asTimeTraveler2 has suggested - make a list from the stats page, and then go to the profile page to add them. I was hoping I could see that on the profile page so I wouldn't have to go back and forth.
Thanks. I do use this function. The problem is, I have to remember what words I used on the hub title, which works for most hubs, but I miss a few because I didn't think of the right keyword to use in my search!
Sounds like you're on the right track, Millionaire, with these replies.
Personally, I group my hubs, edit the groups from time to time, use the CNTRL + F feature (just a key word) mentioned, and also when in My Account, I can click on the column head where the titles are listed (that small blue word TITLE) that automatically puts them into alphabetical order or reverse alphabetical order. The other blue headings: SCORE,, PAGE VIEWS (I like to use EVER), PUBLISHED, and CHANGED do the same thing.
Sometimes, for example, I want to feature my least moving hubs, so I can click on PAGE VIEWS to see what needs attention. At that point, I like to use my Sticky Notes program to type the six titles I wish to put In the Spotlight on my profile page.
I don't have hundreds of hubs, though, only 60+. I thought about using 72 as a fairly easy number to manage, and I have thought about starting a second account for a specific niche (I have trouble focusing on just one subject).
We have to consider the importance of the "In the Spotlight" feature, though. It is my understanding that most page views are by internet users looking for a specific subject. They often don't even see our profile page.
Good luck! Keep happy and keep writing! ~~~

It appears that there has been a recent change on my profile page. Underneath the number of published hubs, there is a number of featured hubs. I do not want this to be shown. My ratio of featured hubs is less than 50% of the number of published hubs. My understanding of why...

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come up below? I just don't want overkill but like the thought that I've got my...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...

Why isn't my last published hub showing up in my profile page?Usually, as soon as I publish an hub it shows up in the hubs section (top) of my profile page, but yesterday I published one and nothing... Anyone experiencing the same?
