I've been trying to get into HubSpot's new product, HubSpot Video, and am having issues navigating it. When I was build a landing page tester it automoated me to install the integration, but I'm still have trouble looking for things like ex. where I can create forms natively on the videos.

Is there any way, or will there be down the road, to connect multiple pillar topics/clusters together? Or any way to build a tool that shows the topic clusters visually all together?
For instance, we have the topic "Marketing" as a pillar. A spoke to that is "social media marketing." However, that also has content clustered around it: ie "instagram marketing," "facebook marketing." And from there, each of those posts has topics clustered around them. Currently, no post can be in two pillars, and it's difficult to think about all the content together.

There are also pillars that we offer that serve as connectors to many others. For instance, a "Job Descriptions" pillar has "Marketing Job Descriptions" as an article. But that article also connects to that "Marketing" pillar. But there's no way currently to visualize this or measure that this creates a web, not clean/easy pillars.

Thanks for the reply. Building out something akin to parent/child relationships between topic clusters, or functionality to connect topic clusters to one another isn't on the product roadmap at this point in time. While cross-linking related content is a good thing, we don't want to create a situation where this is broadly done across all your topics. At that point, topics could begin to blend together, and it could become more difficult for search engines to recognize your authority on a given topic --- effectively negating the benefit of organizing your content into topic clusters in the first place.
We are considering ways to make it easier to re-organize your content as your site grows. We appreciate your feedback as we look to further build out content strategy.

@agirard, I can understand your point and this may ultimately lie with the abilities or lack there of, of the search engines.
I think what we may be imagining, or at least me... For Example: Writing a piece of content about internal combustion engines. That piece of content would be applicable to be a support document for pilar pages about Fords, Chevys or Aston Martins.....
