When you start a new hub, how deep do you go into the category options?
I mean do you go down to the last option or stay with the broad option at the top?
Which option has worked better for you?
Normally two categories, unless I want the hub down as a very special subject. Example: Books and Writng --> how to write --> how to write a novel
I feel it's best to break a category down as specifically as possible. I always go down to the third category. It helps when people are doing an internet search.
If my hub or question doesn't fit neatly into the third category, then I'll use a second. If it doesn't fit neatly into the second category, then I'll use the first. I prefer to be as accurate as possible because I'm an extremely organize person.
I would go to the last option if I can find one that fits my hub well.
Also, if I'm not sure, I go to that actual topic page. I look at the hub titles listed there and at the next level. I'm looking to see which level mine would appear to fit or not fit together with the other titles.
