Why are the contest winning Hubs so narrowly focused instead of from more wide ranging topics?
Three of the five winning selections and questions have to do with love.
Perhaps the narrowly focused "love" topics are ones with low competition and high search? Everyone wants to be in love, but no one wants to look for it . . . just a guess. Thanks for the question.
the contest rules specifically ask for narrow topics:
>>>>> Whether the entry is on a long-tail, niche topic that has not been extensively covered online
these hubs are more likely to score high in searches
Cascoly, I don't think you understood my question. 60% of the winners have been from one topic alone, regardless of how narrow the question is, that seems unfair. This contest should be providing winners from multiple categories, i.e. sports, travel, food and cooking, etc.. Otherwise, they should simply rename it the KNOW IT ALL ABOUT LOVE contest.
