Topics and Subtopics on Wizzley

by HealthfulMD

One key step when creating pages on Wizzley is to select a topic, a subtopic and even a sub-subtopic for your page. Look at the list of topics and subtopics to find the best one.

Wanted - a Topics List Page

In looking around Wizzley I discovered there were so many topics and subtopics and sub-subtopics that one could choose to write pages that it felt a bit overwhelming.

Looking around I couldn't find a central list of topics and subtopics. Selecting a topic, subtopic and sub-subtopic that makes it easy for viewers to find the page can be very helpful in getting your page viewed by others.

Since I couldn't find the list of topics to use as a quick reference to make sure I picked an appropriate topic for my pages, I set out to create one. Use the list to see what topics and subtopics are available to use on Wizzley.

What are Topics on Wizzley?

Topics on Wizzley are the main categories for the Wizzley pages. There are 30 different topics that Wizzley writers can choose from to categorize their pages.

Choosing the right topic for a page can be very helpful in getting the page viewed. Selecting a topic makes it easy for viewers who are browsing through the topics section of Wizzley to find the top pages in each of the categories. 

Having the page in the right categorie also increases the potential for the page showing up as a "Relevant article" on the individual Topic page.

Cool Feature - Search Topics

Results from a search of topics for "Death"
To search for a Wizzley Topic select "Search Topics"
To search for a Wizzley Topic select "Search Topics"

Using the Search Topics Function

The "Select topic" area also has a "Search topics" tab making searching the Wizzley topics database a breeze. To search for a topic:

  1. Choose "Search topics"
  2. Enter topic of interest (be sure it is spelled correctly).
  3. Read the results
  4. Choose a topic from one of the results.
  5. Click on the link. The topic, subtopic and sub-subtopic automatically populated for you.

I think the Search Topics has to be one of the coolest functions ever. It helps cut down on the random searching through topics and lets you see a potential list of topics that would work with your chosen subject.

Second Cool Feature - Suggest a Topic

Results from Search Topic "Thanatology"
Suggest a Topic if "Can not find a suitable topic" appears
Suggest a Topic if "Can not find a suitable topic" appears

Suggesting a New Topic

Using the "Suggest new topic" function is really easy. You can suggest a new topic right as you are are creating a page.

  1. Choose "Search topics"
  2. Enter topic of interest (be sure the word is spelled correctly)
  3. Look for the results
  4. If "Can not find a suitable topic" appears then, "Suggest new topic" will appear as a link.
  5. Click on the "Suggest new topic" link.
  6. Fill in your new topic suggestion.

Obviously if you are suggesting a new topic, you won't be able to use it right away. You need to give the Wizzley team some time to respond and decide if they want to include that topic.

You can also suggest topics for discussion with the Wizzley community by posting them in the section in the Tips, tricks, and suggestions discussion forum.

Submit Your Topic Suggestions in the "Suggest a new Topic"

What are Subtopics and Sub-Subtopics on Wizzley?

The subtopics and sub-subtopics are ways of being able to more specifically choose the best category when writing an article.

Using my search for "death" as an example, I would end up choosing very different topic areas depending on the type of article selected.

  • Entertainment & Media  »  Celebrities  »  Celebrity Deaths
  • Family  »  Children  »  Death of a Child
  • Health and Wellness »  Mental Health  »  Death and Dying
  • Health and Wellness  »  Aging  »  Death and Mourning
  • Relationships & Family  »  Family History  »  Death Records

An article about the latest celebrity death would be classified under Entertainment & Media. Articles about coping with the death of a child would be classified under Family where as articles on coping with the death of an adult would go under the Mental Health category of Health and Wellness and the death of an elder under Aging. Articles about looking up genealogy records would be classified under Relationships & Family.

In this current system, there is no spot (yet) for articles on coping with the death of a pet, other than classifying the content under Pets & Animals, so this is an area that I will suggest to add.

Note: This page does not include the sub-subtopics. That would have made the page even longer.

Great post full of ideas and resources.
Thanks

AJ on 06/02/2011

Yes, this really is a great Wizzley resource. Thank you for putting it together.

HealthfulMD on 06/01/2011

Ron
I'm glad I didn't try getting all 3,000 categories. Pulling these together was challenge enough, but it helps me to see the categories and what types of topics have 'niches.'

Susan52 on 06/01/2011

Wow, what a wonderful resource. Thanks for all your hard work, HealthfulMD!

mandeesears on 06/01/2011

Bookmarked as well! Handy to have all this on one page. Thanks!

RhondaAlbom on 06/01/2011

Thanks. This is really useful.

ronpass on 06/01/2011

Kirsti - great resource for all of us. We were so busy creating the 3,000+categories, etc (many days work) that we did not get around to a detailed index. Thanks for putting this up.

pkmcr on 06/01/2011

This is really useful and I am bookmarking it too!

nightowl on 06/01/2011

Very nice, thank you!
One suggestion: Instead of posting new topic suggestions in the forum we also have the ability to suggest directly from the topic selector. If a search for your desired sub-topic comes up empty you can mail it to us right there and then.

petunia on 06/01/2011
