HubSpot offers a variety of tools for its users, and one of the most useful for those trying to grow organic traffic is the Topic Cluster Tool. This easy to use tool makes implementing topic clusters and pillar strategies easy in your HubSpot CMS. Let's take a look at what the tool is, how it works, and why you should use it.
A topic cluster is a method of organizing your website's content around a central topic or theme.
