i see the groups options in my account. what is that exactly? how do i find groups, join a group, browse groups. sorry, newbie here and trying to figure it out. UPDATE: is it like a category thing i create myself? if so, is there actually a way on hubpages to share similar hubs with other hubbers?
Sounds like you've worked out what groups are - you can organise your Hubs into groups, then a link to the next hub in the group will appear at the bottom of the Hub (before the comments) with an arrow.
Groups existed long before categories!
The emphasis on Hubpages isn't on sharing Hubs with other Hubbers, because it's a revenue-sharing site and your paying audience will come from search engines, not from within HubPages.
If you want feedback on your Hubs, post in the "Extreme Hub Makeover" section. Otherwise, network with other Hubbers by participating meaningfully in forum discussions - if you make interesting posts, Hubbers will check out your profile and Hubs and become your fan. Then they'll be sent an email when you write a new Hub.
Marisa's post says it all. I'd been a member for more than a year and a half before I started using Groups. Took me a bunch of hours to get them all set up, but it was more than worth it.
Except for the links Marisa described (invaluable!), it may not make a big difference to have Groups when you're just starting out, but after a while, it's the ONLY way to locate one of your own Hubs from the My Account page without tearing your hair out (if you have any left, which I mostly don't).

Do you more experienced Hubbers believe writing about controversial topics like politics hurts or help your page traffic? For example, if you disagree with someone's political Hub, will you not visit their other Hubs?

In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense...
