I have a question about categories.

    I just created a new hub, and it might be in a category that might not see much traffic. Can I choose more than one category for my hub? I would like to add it to the entertainment category as well.
    Is it possible to choose several categories for one hub?

    No -- one category only. If you're talking about your gay movies hub, I would put that in Entertainment rather than Gender and Relationships though.

      Good point. I guess I wasn't paying very close attention when I put it there. It is 7:00 a.m. and it took me about 3 hours to write it all on about 5 hours of sleep.  I have been awake going on 19 hours now, so I'm kind of tired.


      However, I just tried to edit it, and I can't find anywhere it will let me change the category it is in. Any help would be appreciated.

        The category button is on the side, under settings (in the blue box on the right hand side.) Go under categories to change it.

        One thing you can do to try to appeal to both groups is to put in one category, and then another group. The groups can be reached by going under your account, and clicking groups. If you have it one category, try putting into a totally different group. That way, you have a chance of reaching a different audience. As well, you can put related hubs that are different than your categories.

        Hope that helps!

          Is there a way that I can put my hub in a group that belongs to someone else? I only have 8 hubs, and they are a scattered variety. I checked it out, but, I don't think that would really work for what I have.

          Thanks for the help.

            You cannot put a hub in someone else's group but you can put them in one of the public categories. Groups are defined by yourself and groups can only contain your own hubs. Write a few more hubs and then you can define some groups. Whenever you have two or more hubs in a group, HubPages will include links at the bottom of all those hubs to other hubs in that group.

            In a sense, that happens automatically. When you give your hubs certain tags, they will be searchable for the same keywords as other hubbers who have been using those tags. You can use broad tags, as long as they are descriptive of your contents and not excessive.
