There is nothing like going into the creative writing category and finding a hub about the hottest women's bathing suits, or Hair extensions. When you are trying to see where your writing hub rates in comparison to others.
I notice a lot of hubs that have dozens of keywords that have nothing to do with the subject. For example I noticed one hub creator that had keywords for all of his hubs on every hub he had. I don't remember what the subject was, because he had many hubs, but his keyword list was longer than this message.
Its like they think people are throwing darts blindfolded, and hoping that one of their keywords might be a target. I thought that was something that wasn't allowed?
I also think there should be a group that we can join, rather than just being stuck in a category where people are fishing
using any bait that they can.
A monitored group would make sure that unwanted hubs that don't fit the category get booted, making it easier for people to find what they are looking for.
Become a follower of a category or a keyword and you can "monitor it" as you call it.
If you crawl around in the Topic section, and pay attention, you'll see the link over on the right where you can become a follower.
Flag the hub.
Thanks allways interesting answers. Thought about flagging the hubs. But, I don't really want to be known as someone who flags, because I know from experience at other sites that can come back to haunt you.
Thanks Relache, Darkside. You both have impressive lists of followers. I love your avatars. I love art, and Family Guy!
This is for you Darkisde:
I did a Darth doody! I sithed my pants! my diapers gone to the darkside! LOL! Now I can release my Darth farts!
Have a good one!
I flagged a hub today. All it said was "Welcome to your archery hub!"
Nothing else. No photos. Nothing.
I had absolutely no qualms about flagging it. And no one would have known about it had I not mentioned it. So if you ever flag a hub, no one is going to know, unless you mention it. And you are no obligation to mention it.
I practically sithed my pants when I saw that movie. And the Chicken Robot one. I haven't seen the latest Family Guy one though.
If you flag something, other Hubbers never know. Only the Hub team knows. So you can't get "known as someone who flags".

So many of you jumped in with good advice to help me after my hubs crashed and burned last week that I was overwhelmed. I love this community! I know, too, that many of you have been reading my work to help me "up" my numbers, and I also thank you for that. So far I have...

Just few hours back when I Logged In I got the message that my Hubs have not been categorized..Have you did that and what are all the benefits by doing so? Will it increase the traffic?

I would like to have a feature where you can do hubs on combined topics. Some things I'd like to write about combine say like Music and Television or Movies and Television. I'd like to that rather than trying to do a general entertainment hub.

I like hopping hubs, learning new things and meeting other hubbers. However, I have absolutely no interest in reading hubs on religion, politics, poems, fictional stories or some far away place I will never visit so I skip them. Usually this is no big deal but I just hopped about 30 hubs and no...

It would be useful to be able to sort our hubs into categories on the profile page. This would make it easier for readers to see what else is available in subjects that interest them, and also remind writers to work on a niche. I think the option was available on the old profile page - was it...
