What is the puspose of article groups?
I understand using them to organize articles but it doesn't appear as if the groups are used anywhere outside of account managment on hub pages. Am I missing an opportuinty to structure and present the articles better?
Apart from organizing your hubs, hub grouping also increases your hubs visibility. As visitor view or read one of the hub from the group, the other hubs from the same group will be listed at the bottom of that hub.
Maybe you're missing this? At the bottom of each hub is a bar, with the first line of "Vote Up", "Share", "Print", etc. and second line with "useful", "funny", etc. Directly underneath that is the third line and you might see a title of another of your hubs there with a L arrow, and on the right side of that line a title of yet another of your hubs with a R arrow. These two hubs are from the group you've put the hub in. One listed directly before and one after in your Group list. Therefore, by changing the order of the list in that Group, you can control which two hub titles appear on this line. Hope this helps.
Great explanation! I was seeing the articles but apparently it was showing my unrelated, ungrouped articles.
Glad it helped! I note that now that the hub page format has changed there is not all those things I listed still on a bar at the bottom.

One of my game guides gets 100 views a week, even though the game came out in 2014. When I wrote it, I didn't really think it'd do as well as it is. Have any of your articles done surprisingly well?

I established Groups and moved my existing (completed) hubs into appropriate groups. I understand that some of my hubs will show at the bottom of the screen for a hub from the same group. However, I believe that...

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub...
