When publishing an article, is it better to put it in a broad category or in a subcategory?
As I was working on my last article, I decided to put it in a general category because I wanted more people to see it. What would be the benefits or disadvantages of moving it to a more specific subcategory?
It is best to get it into a second level category if possible. When choosing a topic when beginning writing an article the module asks a subtopic be chosen, but will let you continue if you don't. At HubPages it helps narrow searches at Topic Pages.
You want to be able to categorize it as specifically as possible. It makes it easier for readers to find you both on the website and in google searches.
There are so many articles that get put in the general category that people are actually less likely to see it because they have to dig through every single other article in that topic.

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...
