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.
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
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.
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!

Has anyone else seen really weird pairings of hubs? I'm loving the new format and having another hub of mine appear on the side with the ads. Most of the pairings make sense, but I just noticed my hub about Edith...

Do you add content to your worst-performing Hub or your best to make it even better? Do you add content to the low-scoring Hubs before the high scorers? What else do you think when you decide when or if to add content...

Now that subdomains have been trashed the Hub url is dependent on the the topic the Hub is filed under. For some subjects there are several different topics that may be appropriate. In some cases, sub-topics are...

How can I change the URL Title for my hub link? I started a hub on one topic, and then changed it!

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub...
