I'm trying to consolidate 4 different hubs onto one "index" hub, basically a hub just to send readers to other hubs of mine on the same basic topic. See http://hubpages.com/hub/a-comprehensive … ectricians
Have I overdone the links? Is it even acceptable? Is this kind of thing worthwhile to drive traffic (expected to be interested in all the hubs) to different hubs? I plan on removing links between the other 4 hubs and add one to this hub, trying to get readers to this "index".
If this works, I have at least two more hubs to add to the four referenced in this hub, and will simply modify the one just published.
Thanks for your help
This is just my humble two cents worth:
Index hubs don't work that well (for me at least.) However, that said, mine were in a completely different niche.
The hub looks fine to me, and I hope it works for you.
Here's a hub that may interest you on the general topic, if you ever wish to consolidate more of it in one hub:
Thanks for the reply, Wry. The hub you reference certainly looks valuable, but (if I'm reading it right) gives a method for an actual table of contents in one hub for sections of that same hub. I have chosen to break the subject into several hubs for more exposure, and want a table of contents for the entire series.
I'm hoping that the niche makes a difference in that readers of one of the hubs would probably be interested in the others as well, and maybe even 1 or 2 of the associated hubs not on the same basic topic. In addition, one of the hubs is over a month old and has never been indexed. I'm thinking the titles are too similar, and changed the unindexed one, but I hope for some exposure from this table of contents.
Time will tell, I guess.
Personally, I like the idea, and it seems promising. Don't know a lick about such things but, 'what the hell' if it works, we'll all be doing it.

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

Hi, I am new to HubPages, but I've noticed some of my hubs are indexed on Google and some are not. One of the earliest ones I posted (over 4 days ago) has a little 'traffic falling' arrow next to it. I tried to search for it on Google, and despite it having the 'featured' symbol next to it on my...

What is a hub called that introduces a series of hubs and that links to the individual articles of the series? (In squidoo we called that a lensography).

'When it comes to Hub size, is there a size that is considered too big?I have a hub approaching 18,000 words. All content on it is relevant to the same video game. I'm trying to see if this works better than having a number of smaller hubs connected through links. I have a table of contents that...

Hello Hubbers! I was wondering if there is a recommended maximum length for a hub? I started writing one, and then realized that I have enough information to write a book. So I decided to break the info into eight parts (translation: eight hubs). I started writing part one, then realized that i...

How does one get the related hubs shown on a hub to match the hub??? I've tried changing categories, nothing works. I can't for the life of me see what China buying Smithfield Foods has to do with Native American history!
