    If I have something to write about, do I add it to my existing hubs, or start a new one?

    I have 7 different hubs.  I want to know if every time I want to write about something do I add it to one of my hubs or do I start a totally new one?  For example, I have a hub about books. Now if I want to talk about a book that I have read do I add my opinions to my existing book hub?  Or do I start a new hub with the info on the book?

    You can actually do it both ways.  You can use an existing hub or you can choose to make a new hub.  You can go back into one of your hubs, edit it and add whatever you want.  Hope this was helpful.

    Well if the information about the book is relevant to the article, you could add it. But if you really want to focus on a more detailed article about the book itself, you would be better off writing a separate one for it. Just be sure you don't stray away from the topic you are trying to focus on if you do decide to add some info about the book.

    I tried to put too much into my hubs and found it hard to promote and hard to categorize, also it is harder to separate the material that is drawing down the hub scores and improve it. I would keep them separate... accumulating more hubs, promoting more visits, more likely to determine where you need to add and make changes to increase scores.

    Even i faced this question and here is what i think now.
    Add to an existing hub only if the new information adds any value to the existing hub. If the existing hub is already 500+ words or has enough pictures etc to look complete, it is better to create a fresh hub.
    It is easier to promote a new hub. Also, it is easier for the readers of your hubs to reach the specific info they are looking for rather than searching for it in lengthy hubs.
    I think it would be better if you create a new hub for the book you want to write about and add a link to that hub in your existing hub.
    Remember Hubpages supports Interlinking of hubs, so always add links to relevant hubs (yours or others) to your hub.
    This keeps things neat and also helps you gain more 'Hubkarma'
