I'm new to Hubpages and want to get off to a good start, with great content, totally compliant to policies, and etc.
This question may be very basic, but I can't find a discussion of this anywhere.
>> What is the difference between a hub and an article?
>> I understand that when you publish an article, you create a Hub, but can a Hub have multiple articles?
>> If so, how do I indicate which article belongs in which hub?
How to I get in touch with other Hubpages authors in my area? Is there any sort of support group?

Hi Charles, welcome to HubPages!
There is no difference between a Hub and an article. "Hub" is the term we used to use for articles back when startup jargon was all the rage, but over time we realized it was much less confusing to new writers to just call them articles. However, there are still a few places on the site, and many users in the Forums who still refer to articles as Hubs.
Uh oh. I'm one of those behind-the-times writers (can't be a "hubber" any more!) that refer to hubs. Break out the wet noodles; I'll try to do better in the future.
You can still be a hubber, but you must write articles instead of hubs.
No worries! We don't discourage people in the community from continuing to use these terms as per your preference, we've just tried to simplify the language on the site itself for clarity for new users.
I had no idea this had changed. My bad!
Welcome to HP. You can find plenty of support on the forums. Ask away...but also make sure you do your own research in the learning center as well.
Writers here are always willing to help those who graciously accept that help.
There is a steep learning curve here, and it takes time to learn all you need to know...but you will if youjust keep at it.

Lately I have noticed how most of my articles that have been there for a long time, are being marked as not featured. And even after trying to "fix" them they are placed in the same stage over and over again....

I've heard people talk about turning off Adsense to earn more from the Hubpages program, but I'm really confused about how this works. Does HubPages pay better than Adsense? I thought Adsense was required to make money...

A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day...
