How do you know if the category you choose to put your hub in is the right one??
I am never sure which category to choose as my hubs seem like they can fit in many....
Hierarchical categories, such as HubPages uses, are not always sufficient as a classification system. There are often times when a hub will fit into multiple categories and other times when they'll only fit in one. I wouldn't worry too much about it, so long as it's a relevant to the category. In other words, there really is no "right" answer.
Like Sandonia said, I wouldn't worry too much about it. I have several articles that are published in general categories and receive traffic. With that being said, the more specific, the better
Choosing a topic is not an exact science. Hubpages categorization system is not perfect and there is a lot of overlap between topics. As long as you get reasonably close and the topic you choose makes sense, it's fine.
I find it challenging as well, always doubting myself. It's too bad you cannot cross promote in multiple categories.

I've been going through some of my old Hubs to update them but one thing I didn't think to check - until today - was which category they were in. What a shock! Several of my older Hubs were in totally inappropriate categories, which may be one reason why they weren't noticed for a...

I discovered lately that most of my topics do not fall into any of the available categories. i decided to choose hubpages- hub about hub- favorite hub. Does my present choice of category has any effect on my hub score? Please help me out with this.
