You know what would be nice, pursuant to the information I received indicating that it is the group in which the hub falls that determines the "next in this series" placement at the bottom of the hubs...???
Maybe this is too much to ask for, but the top-level categories from which we select when initially creating the hub have sub-categories. It would be really nice to have sub-categories available for our groups, as well, so things don't get mixed into the wrong "next" category, such as I was having trouble with.
For example, my articles on photography, genealogy, and R/C cars are all grouped under my group of "Hobbies." However, those are very disparate hobbies, and an article on R/C cars is not likely of interest as "next" to someone into genealogy, or photography, for example.
If I could have a "Hobbies" group with sub-categories for photography, R/C Hobbies, and genealogy, for example, that problem would be solved.
Otherwise, separate groups must be created for each, and that could result in an entire group with only a single, or two items. I believe that would be less of a "doesn't make sense to do that" issue with sub-categories.
Perhaps you could just start putting together photographic hubs covering the genealogy of top R/C racers out there.
I rather think it is better to create a group each for photography, genealogy and R/C cars separate instead of clubbing them into one major group. I also face same problem with 2 or 3 hubs of mine which I am contemplating to create separate group heads.
As Venkatachari suggests, we recommend putting your Hubs in smaller, directly related groups based on what the Hubs are about (rather than where they're categorized on the Topic Tree) to ensure that your readers are getting only relevant content that they may be interested in.

I established Groups and moved my existing (completed) hubs into appropriate groups. I understand that some of my hubs will show at the bottom of the screen for a hub from the same group. However, I believe that categorizing hubs into groups with the same or similar theme/overall topic ON THE...

Did HP change the group function, or did I do something terrible to ungroup my 150+ hubs? I write a lot about Astrology, but have different categories. Under each of my hub categories, though, no matter what the subject, the individual hubs are listed. I just published a new hub, and it looks like...

Hi, all,For the life of me I cannot figure out how to add my "orphaned" hubs to groups and/or categories. The Help doesn't include anything about this. Can you tell me how it's done in a clear, step-by-step procedure? I'm easily confused! ;o)Thanks,Ellen

I've seen many times that you should group your hubs into catagories. Why?What is the benefit to groups? Who sees them?

Can You Still Group Hubs hese Days?Just wondering, because I remember a time when during the Hub publishing process you'd have to go back and put a Hub into a group of your own creation. Does that still exist or does HubPages just use the categories now rather than groups that users create...
