I've noticed that some of the related hubs are not really related. They're not even in the same category.
On my latest, it's in the Animal Shelter subcategory, and I have a related hub that's in the tents and shelter subcategory. When I click on it, there are random hubs about rescuing animals, basement humidifiers, what can people do, damp problems, and getting married hubs. On my same original hub, I've got a cosmetic hub and a saving money hub, neither are related to donating to animal shelters.
I have also noticed similar problem. However not much. Some times there are irrelevant hubs but not always. Perhaps this is because of tags, deceiving tags.
Should we report those to hubpages team?
I figured by opening a thread, it would be available for the team to look at. No need to email anyone.
I thought the related hubs would be set per category not tags, anymore, which is why I brought it up.
I was under the impression that everything would be linked via the category and not the tags. I have many hubs where the related hubs do not match, or at least have 2 or 3 that don't, and when you click them to see what category they're in, as to maybe the other hub is in the wrong category, those hubs have irrelevant related hubs.
Some of them don't even have related hubs.

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

I am working on a hub that is not quite ready to be published. I noticed that in the right hand lower corner, Hubpages lists "Related Hubs". I find one of these to be offensive, and I don't want it apeparing on my hubpage when I publish. How can I remove the offending hub from the list of...

As mentioned in a couple of forum threads recently, Hub Groups (the "More in this Series" module on Hubs) is officially being retired. Groups were created to help Hubbers connect Hubs belonging to a series (e.g., a Hub with multiple parts), making it easy for readers to access the other...

At the bottom of the lens it has related hubs. Is there a way to exclude some hubs from showing there, or to encourage better (more related) ones by limiting the category or using keywords or hand picking them or something?For example, my lens on a simple wooden toy is getting horror movies...
