I was just wondering how the related Hubs module is calculated on each page?
My main reason for wanting to know this, is because on most of my games and technology Hubs now, the Related Hubs section is proliferated with facebook games.
These have little relevance to what I write, and I would rather Hubs that were related to my own were linked through for my traffic, than Hubs which have nothing to do with it.
Are there any keywords which can be altered to change the related hubs, or is it simply worked out by catagory?
Interesting question. I've only been here a few weeks and am just getting into the ins and outs of hubpages... as opposed to just writing. Sorry I don't have an answer, but I'll be staying tuned to see if anyone else does. Thanks for asking.
Related Hubs are primarily due to category and tags. Sadly, this methodology does not always return what are truly relevant matches. The related choices are often not as good with newer Hubs, so over time it sometimes gets better.
It's helpful to build in small clusters of related Hubs as then your own Hubs take some precedence in those slots.
And in response to what Pearldiver said, I've NEVER knows of a way to pick related Hubs.
The related hub section is mainly for related hubs by fellow writer. As hubs of other writers apear on your hub, your hub also appears in others hub. People can go to your hubs by clicking "Read more hubs...." or through your profile page linked to your hubs.
Hub Pages wish to create community feelings.
I think that you will find that you can set them yourself and thus set your own side bar related hubs.
Read the instructions on your profile page re; the settings.
(the first page that comes up when you first sign in).
Good original question that I've always wondered about since the "related" hubs on my hubs don't really seem "related". Anyway, I'm going to pop over and check my profile page and see it the above is correct. Thanks.
hmmm, do you mean the custom profile page?? I thought that only related to the profile page itself?
thisisoli, I have a Hans Zimmer hub I would love to have on your modern warfare hub page.
I didn't see anything on my account, my profile, or an individual hub. It also doesn't make sense that an individual can decide which hubs are "related"... he may only pick his own and he may pick unrelated hubs. I think it is the hubpages program...
go to the not so "related hubs" that you do not like being associated with..see what tags you share, than remove those shared tags from your hub.
If the hub is poor or has inappropriate tags, flag it.
this is just about the only thing im a stickler about, I frequently go to the hubs that are "related" as its should be something im interested in, since I just got done writing about it and all...when its totally inappropriately tagged, I do flag it for "misleading tags" (something like that)
Its rare for me to see truly unrelated hubs though, i think the system works pretty good
I looked at your latest hub..saw it had all facebook stuff in the related hubs
* All Topics
* Games, Toys, & Hobbies
* Computer & Video Games
* Online Games
3 of the same sub categories, so they are pretty related in the scheme of things considering how many different topics exist on here

I've just noticed something which concerns me a bit and wondered if it is something new or not. The related hubs, listed on my highest trafficked hub in my best niche, only have one hub which fits the description out of six examples. The other five--though distantly related--would...
