I understand why HP got rid of groups, but for those who used them correctly at least they resulted in appropriately related links at the bottom of your Hubs. Now, many of my Hubs have a hodgepodge of topics linked at the bottom in the "more by author section".
I see how this could happen when Hubbers only have one or two Hubs on a topic, but I have 9 Hubs on birding (all in the same category) and still see links to my fish Hubs in the "more by" section.
I know there is a lot going on, but is it possible for HubPages to consider ways for Hubbers to influence these links so this doesn't happen?
Would you mind posting a link to the Hub you are referring to and we'll take a look?
Sure. It seems like it is happening on all of my Hubs except the aquarium ones (most of which were moved to PetHelpful). Here are three examples:
http://hubpages.com/education/How-to-De … r-Visitors
http://hubpages.com/education/How-to-At … -Your-Yard
It looks like the first two links on each are related, but the last one is always an unrelated Hub from PetHelpful.
Thanks for checking it out!

I am still seeing quite a few hubs (not just my own) that have completely random hubs listed in the "Discover More Hubs" section. It would be really helpful to hubbers to know how the algo finds titles for this section. For example, tonight I read a poetry hub titled "Red Riding...

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...

Hi I noticed recently that when hubs are listed in the Google search results the 2nd link doesn't got to the hub but to the category page - for example: You can see the tumblr page has the normal double link to the page ranked - but the hubpage doesn't the 2nd link is to...

I submitted a hub about the difference between assertive and aggressive women called "She's such a Bitch: So Why Does He Love Her?" and I can't figure out exactly what's blocking it from publication.The bots flagged it as possibly containing inappropriate content, and sent it for a...
