Where did the name "hub" (for an article) come from?
I looked through the Learning Center at the history of HubPages but couldn't find the answer to this. Is it some type of internet lingo? A friend asked me and I didn't know.
Hub means the centre, core, focal point, focus, heart, nerve, and centre. It is very appropriate for choosing the term for what you write is the focus, heart, or centre of the article.
I can't find it right now, but there was a time when HubPages offered a diagram to point out why Hubs are called what they are. The diagram showed one circle at the center, and around that circle were other circles, connected with a line to the one in the center.
The circle in the center represented the subject of the article/writing. The "offshoot" circles represented other material related to the subject and presented with the use of the capsules such as links, videos, etc. So, there's the one core subject that is the article, itself; and then there's the "spin-off" information associated with the core subject.

How long does it take you to write a hub?I think this question will really open some eyes, for some. On average I spend about 30-35 minutes writing a hub, though it can sometimes be longer, sometimes as short as 15 minutes. A rare occasion will require a large amount of research, which can cause...
