What is the benefit of putting our hubs in groups?
Do visitors see our hub groups?
The more Hubs that you have, it makes it easier to find them when you are looking for a certain one, or ones. Even if you do not have a lot, it is nice to see what you have in one area and you know what you are writing about mostly. It keeps them from being scattered all over.
I would say it's like the categories we had in Squidoo, so that if we want to find a specific lens, for instance, cookie recipes, all our Hubs on that subject are grouped together. It's a convenience for us, basically.
No they don't see what groups we have or even a list for all the titles in each group.
Once you assign your hubs to groups, the ones in each group are connected by "previous" and "next" links after the hub. Let's say you write hubs about how to take care of dogs. One is about grooming, one about food, one about choosing the right vet, etc. If someone is trying to learn about how to care for a dog before they get one, they'll find one of your pages. Once they finish reading that hub, they can go right to your next hub about dogs using those links. If those links aren't present, they may not know you have other hubs about dog care to read so they'll go back to the search engine and may not find your other hubs. I'm not sure how often people use those links, but a reader may stay on your pages longer if they can from one to another more easily.
There are many benefits. One is for me to see what topics I have already done in a group. I think the best is there is a "previous" and "next" image section that appears on my hub so the reader can easily find related topics in my collection.
I made a screen shot to show you. This is on my GIMP Watermark hub I have added a few of my tutorials to the GIMP Tutorial group so far. When they are all there readers can scroll through each of them.

I don't know if this would be programmatically possible for you guys, but it would be REALLY nice to be able to put hubs in more than one group.For example, I might like to put my "Gift Ideas for Pirates" hub in the following groups:Funny HubsGift IdeasPirate HubsIt's just a quick...

I have seen a few mentions of putting our articles into groups but when I went to put in a heading I found myself stopping because I wasn't sure what to put there. Do we go broad categories ie: foodie:healthOr use keywords for each group title.ie: food: recipes, cooking, preserving Or niche...

Hi everyone! Today we released an update to the Hub Groups interface in My Account. The new interface closely matches the About the Author UI and should be familiar to many of you. Please note that we did not make any functional changes to Hub Groups (such as integrating it with About the Author)...

As mentioned in a couple of forum threads recently, Hub Groups (the "More in this Series" module on Hubs) is officially being retired. Groups were created to help Hubbers connect Hubs belonging to a series (e.g., a Hub with multiple parts), making it easy for readers to access the other...
