Hubs that go together?

    If you have hubs that go together then do you publish all at once? What works better?

    I have several series of hubs.

    I did a tribute to women on HubPages twice. First set was 2 hubs and second set was 5 hubs. The original 2 hub set was published together and were connected together by a link at the end of the first hub and a link at the beginning of the second hub which led back to the first hub.

    The other most recent 5 hub series was published all on the same day, in order.

    I also have a two-set hubs on the Conscious Mind, which were published at separate times.

    I guess it depends on what the topic is and what type of writing it is. Such as chapters of a book would be published separately so you can have time to gain comments. If you published them together at the same time, then the initial traffic for the second one might not be good as the first one.

    I ran across that when I published 5 hubs on the women. The first hub was greeted by lots of visitors, but the secondary, third, fourth and fifth hub never saw the same traffic as the first one.

      Hi smile

      I just asked a forum question, about hub series, after reading a comment, from Jason, that they don't encourage 'part 1', 'part 2', etc, in titles.

      I had done something like this with a series I wrote (now unpublished), and I have also written some connected items, with each title having the same few words, eg 'Shakespeare's Hamlet'; 'English Language: ...'.

      It seems that this is not a good idea and, to get viewers, they should have very different titles, if at all possible.

      To me, it seems logical for sets of hubs to reflect this is the title, but it appears that this doesn't go down well with Google. sad
