I found something disturbing today. When I am logged in and I view my hub, the section where the related hubs are displayed shows the article group of my hubs. Here's a screenshot:
The article group that my hub is in is called "Marketing adsense experiment" because that's what the hub is- an experiment of sorts.
But I don't want readers to know that I'm experimenting with adsense for different hub types/styles!
I tried logging out, but the article group was still displayed. Is the only solution to not group my articles or can this be fixed? I'd much prefer that no one be able to see the article group I put my hubs into...
Hi WC, this is just my suggestion. What if you can keep the group names something that you alone can understand?
instead of putting it as Marketing Adsense Experiment
my account >> Groups
Under "Your Hub Groups" on the left is the option to edit or delete each one. Click "edit" next to that one, then uncheck the box. The box says: "Display name? will precede the hub title if checked"
That should do it.
Helena, you're awesome.
And thanks all for commenting. I suspect many hubbers didn't know that or notice it because I went in and look at several hubber's hubs and they all had their groups displayed.
nicomp, there's a difference between an experimental article and an experimental format of an article.
Quoting from the "Before you go any further" page...
"Please do not publish unfinished, strictly personal, or "test" hubs."
A couple of my hub groups titles I have displayed on purpose so people can understand the reason I categorized things together. A couple less useful group names ("Dogs" I am thinking of specifically) are more obvious and don't need to be displayed, I feel. But I still like being able to display the group if we want. I have found it helpful when reading other hubbers' hubs.
But that means hubs that, like, say "test" and nothing else. He is experimenting with the writing or ad format or whatever, but the hub itself is not a "test" to figure out how HubPages works.

We all categorize our hubs when starting out but how many of us group them as well? Well if you haven't grouped them start right away as the Hubs you put in the same group are displayed at the bottom of your Hub from that group, right above the comment section. This is helpful in two ways. First,...

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What immediately got my attention is that the other four hubs has "editors choice"...

Hi!I am new to HubPages and need HELP! I joined a couple of days ago and have only been able to publish one article. I am unclear as to how postings work. I was under the impression that once I chose a title for my hub, I could just continue to add new topics. I want my Hub...

What is the puspose of article groups?I understand using them to organize articles but it doesn't appear as if the groups are used anywhere outside of account managment on hub pages. Am I missing an opportuinty to structure and present the articles better?

On Friday, April 3rd, I chose two of my hubs with the highest hub scores and made one, distinct change. On Saturday, after seeing the results, I did the same thing to six more. First I will give my results, then I will explain what I did. Two hubs changed on Friday with results as...

I just happened to be viewing one of my hubs that has been deemed a sleeper, and I noticed that the Amazon and Ebay advertisements in the capsules displayed on the hub has been increased in size. This alarms me, as I have many hubs with various text capsules with these capsules within that...
