    Is it a good idea to change the topic of one's hub after the initial topic is no longer pertinent?

    What I am attempting to ask is that if one publishes a hub under a specific topic, i.e.,  a National holiday, then after the holiday passes, is it a good idea to change the topic because the hub actually covers another topic well? And in doing so, keeping the hub relevant throughout the year.

    It is a good idea. I also began thinking in the same terms recently. I hope it is possible to change the topic group as and when we feel it consistent. It is a good way of keeping the article relevant throughout the year.

      Hi Ven, Yes, is what I am thinking too ...that is if the hub covers another topic which is rrelevant always and not just at a certain time of the year.

    Yes, you may drive more traffic that way.

      Hi Clive,  Thank you so much.  Yes, I think so too, but wanted to see what others think.

    I think that is more like cheating. Writers must put in the work to stay original. If I read the same things with different titles, I would be upset. The body of a hub can undergo changes, but the Title should never be recycled like that

      Not the title ...the topic. Nothing changes on the hub, but the topic search. However, HP does encourage that we tweaked titles, especially on oldest hubs so that Google will pick them up better.

    Don't change a specific hub, because it will be relevant in a few more months.
    If you want to write evergreen hubs, select a topic that has little competition but deep meaning to those who do - such as XBY error code for ABC appliance or how to treat this condition that almost no one else talks about but many suffer.

      It is an evergreen hub and has deep meaning. I understand though.

    I've changed my topic groupings several times, to see if traffic improves and often it works.  If it doesn't, I change it back again!  It isn't always easy to choose a group; I suppose we're supposed to write with a view to the generalities of a subject but that can be rather tedious! 
    Great question!
    Ann

      Hi Dear Ann, I've missed you here!  So nice to have you pop in.  They've done away with Hub Groups, but the topic at the topic of our hubs is to what I am referring. My question is moot now, as they moved my hub to a niche site : )
