First question: Paul, could we possibly switch the locations of the "tag box" and "related hubs box" that are on the hubs themselves? Since we can't have the "next hub" capsule (that everyone seems to want, btw, hint, hint!! it seems like it would at least help drive our own traffic to put the related hubs up higher?
Would this be a pain to do??
Second question: Could we make it so that our own hubs show up in the related hubs list, all the time? Its kind of a bummer to see only 1 of your own articles listed, when you have 20 on a topic and they are in groups and everything.
I want to drive my own traffic, not someone else's....
The related hubs list is composed based on a combination of keyword similarity and quality as measured by HubScore. There is also a small preference built in for matching to your own hubs, as opposed those by other authors. However -- Just as other people's hubs will appear with yours, so will yours appear on other people's hubs. I don't think this is something we're going to change.
Swapping tags and related hubs sounds like it might be a reasonable change. There are really two places you want related hubs, near the top for someone that decides they don't like the hub they are on right away, and at the bottom for after they have scrolled through it and are getting ready to depart. We'll talk about it in the office next week.

That hub was getting an average of 20o+ views per day, peak. The day after being selected as EC, the views dropped to zero. I watched it for a...

In light of the recent barrage of "alleged" copyright violations from sites that use my content without my permission, I'm wondering why one particular hubber has visited one of my hubs over 600 times. I'm flattered by the attention, although, I do not see any comments from this person....

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What immediately got my attention is that the other four hubs has "editors choice"...

I fail to see the need for the "related hub" section on each of my hub pages. Sometimes these hubs do not really relate to mine. Readers come to our pages to read the hubs we wrote or because they like to follow us. Pulling our readers away to other hubs is not quite fair.There are...

This issue has been raised many times in the past – but given the 20% drop in traffic it should be rectified urgently (good enough is no longer sufficient (IMO)Links to unrelated pages is something that Panda and Penguin have hit sites for. If an author puts an unrelated link on their page they...
