    How to divide up a hub?

    I have a hub that is getting a bit long and I would like to divide it up into related hubs. I am also planning on adding videos for each sub-topic. What is the best way to do this and assure readers will link to the other hubs? Should I write all the separate hubs first unpublished before I delete my existing hub?

    if my hub has more than 1000 words, I divide into two hubs, relate them with links

      Thanks peachy, I expect to create about  5 related hubs from my one with the prospect of adding more. Will links tie them all together or is there another way?

    A hub can carry 1 thou or 2 thousand words easily - if there is enough interesting content in it.  So too long is relative.

    From what I have learnt here, breaking a hub up into Part one, Part 2 etc. .is not to be recommended.

    There are two easy methods I can think of.  One is simply referring to your other hubs [which should all be published by then] in a link or anchor word.  Very simple.

    The other one is ensuring that part of the title is the same for each.
    For example, Grow Yellow Roses - Check the climate and the soil
    Grow Yellow Roses - Care and Cultivation, and Grow Yellow Roses - Keeping mildew at bay.

    I have done that kind of thing successfully with my "Sydney Siege" [Sydney Siege - The Drama] series and the added advantage is that there are always two of those of the same title offered on the side by hubpages

    It may involve some re-writing, but you have a ready made audience.  Those who have read the first one [with interest] will surely want to read more.

    Good Luck

    Longer Hubs have better returns on traffic and views then short hubs. If you wish to do subtopics and wish to ensure people visit the smaller ones, you need one large traffic obtaining hub, about 2-3k words that briefly talks about the subsections and links to them.

    While needing some TLC and revamping, I do have a main Hub that branches off into smaller hubs. The main one has about 1.6k words at time of this posting to smaller niche Hubs for each of the characters about 700 words each.

    While the topic might not interest you personally, it shows a working example of breaking up a hub into smaller pages, instead of making it drone on for ever. It branches off to 9 related Hubs currently, and after the revamp and rework it should list to another main list! It will be like divide-ception!

      I'm getting some great answers here. Thanks. My main is just over 4K and I want to add more. So it seems that dividing it up would be good just don't shrink the main one down too much.
