FAQ: How does my Hub’s search and browse work?

Update (15/5/2022): the default Hub Homepage has been changed from "The Best Stuff you Like, Think and Do about Everything, Anytime...", to "All the Stuff you Like, Think and Do about Everything, Anytime...", so your HomePage will not be empty as soon as you publish your first item.

Edited post follows:

---

As you can see from my example, Hubs help your visitors easily find the content they're interested in:

Default Home page: Everything

Your Hub Homepage by default shows "All the Stuff you Like, Think and Do about Everything, Anytime...": - ie everything in your Hub.

Your vistors can choose to:

... focus on The Best

Visitors can easily change "All the" to '"The Best" to see only the content you've Highlighted (simply add a star to Highlight any item, and it'll appear on your Home).

... and/or focus only on the Type

There are three Types of content on a Hub:

  • Stuff You Do (your portfolio)
  • Stuff You Think (your blog posts, wherever they're published)
  • Stuff you Like (content you've curated, and recommend they read)

Visitors simply click the word to (de)activate it.

... and/or browse by Category

In the navigation phrase, the word "Everything" is a dropdown: visitors click to discover Stuff you Like, Think and Do by Category:

  • You define each Category as a bundle of tags
  • Content with one of those tags will appear in the Category.

... and then refine the search further

Visitors can:

  • combine the above - eg browsing only 'Stuff you Do' about just one Category
  • and/or apply any of the Related Tags, listed under ‘Refine’, left
  • and/or refine by Time - ie, by when you Hubbed the content

Your Visitors can also search

After entering a search term (eg "authenticity"), users see "All the Stuff I Like or Do or Think containing authenticity, Anytime".

They can then refine those search results further: by Like/Do/Think, and/or by Related Tags, and/or by Time.

Your vistors will discover your Services

Users discover, alongside their search results, any related Services you offer (see FAQ: what are Service Pages?)

All collections of Stuff are easy to share

Just copy the URL (address)- for example, here's The Best Stuff I Like or Think (but not Do) tagged media, this year.

Each collection also has its own RSS feed: see FAQ: Does MyHub.ai support RSS?

More sharing tools (social, enewsletter, chatbot) may be developed later - see FAQ: What will the Beta version feature? And beyond that?
