If we had previously linked two articles together, and one of them is subsequently moved to a niche site, will there be a redirect, or do we have to adjust that manually, or eliminate the link altogether?
I bring up this problem again: When our hubs are first set for designation, SOME hubs that I am about to publish DO NOT fit into any HP category . . so I just sit and stare. Can't the HP engineers do something for us?
This might help: HubPages recently clarified that if a Hub is humorous, it must always go in the Humor category. It doesn't matter what you're being humorous about.
Agreed, but it is hard to find. IMO, "humor" should be a top level category, and not a subset of another.
I can see why they don't make it top level After all, HubPages exists to make money and creative writing of all types - including humor - doesn't make money. So it makes sense for them to lump all creative writing into one category.
I agree it's hard to find though. It's here:
Books, Literature, and Writing » Commercial & Creative Writing » Creative Writing » Humor Writing
I do agree, though, that there are plenty of illogicalities in the category tree. I don't know why HubPages created their own instead of using something standard.
@Marisa, thanks so much. I really do not need to be sitting up at 1:30 a.m. and by the way, I voted for YOU. I meant to. You are good.
So I will just plug in something that I think is Creative Writing etc. and it will not go into Automotive.
Have an EZ day.
Indeed--why would be be doing any 'commercial' writing on here? I would presume that would be more like writing advertising copy or text for a technical manual of some sort....puzzling, indeed, given that promotion of other sites/entities/businesses is strictly forbidden here.

Hello hubbers I have a question, I would like to to try to get an article I wrote about a Tupac Shakur Conspiracy youtube channel on a niche site. But I am confused as to where something like that would fit. Is there anyone who can give me some suggestions.

This is what it shows under recommended on all my hubs, whether they are on HP or on the niche sites. I've contacted staff already. Something is very wrong I guess.

If people want to know how to work on a hub so that it ranks well once published on a niche site, I would be open to writing a guide. I will show you my research process and the way I generally structure the content and how I determine this structure and more. This will take some time to get done...

Should I submit the article with the highest hubscore for a higher chance of approval?

Just curious: How many hubs do you you currently have online right now and how many of them have already been moved to the niche sites?
