I have a few hubs that only see an average 15-20 views weekly. They have also never gotten out of the low 70's as far as hubscore goes. Should I delete them or give them a minimum amount of time to see if they eventually pick up?
I have tweaked them around occasionally but it has only helped a little.
Anyway do YOU have a standard score / average view count etc. you go by before deleting a hub that is not doing well?
Thanks for any feedback.
I'm no expert but I wouldn't delete hubs getting 15- 20 hits a week. 100 similar hubs would give you 1500 -2000 hits a week. Why don't you write very similar hubs for each one and then link them. As an example I have written a hub about the best ways to get rid of mice and I really should now write a hub about the best ways to get rid of rats. Best of luck. I am a bit of a slacker - 15 hubs in 2 years. You and I must write more hubs before we start deleting them.
Your right about writing more lol, Thanks for the reply Seanorjohn. I'll see what I can figure out based on my current hubs. It's just disappointing when other hubs are seeing the same in a day. I'll keep trying to improve the weaklings, before creating similar ones that will probably perform the same. It doesn't look too bad with your example of 100 hubs though...I will be taking your advice. The hubs will live.
Yeah, if they have been around for a few weeks and you've tried to improve them and they're still not picking up you might want to unpublish them eventually. I have some that are like that. It does seem to vary so much from hub to hub and sometimes there's not much rhyme or reason to it.
I've deleted plenty that seemed to get no views at all. Getting 15 - 20 views per week almost 3 a day is something and that can be improved. Give it time, it will build up. Else do some backlinking by writing more hubs on similar content.

In a forum I read recently someone commented that Google looks down on your subdomain if it contains many poor articles. But how do I tell which is considered poor?Can I tell by hubscore? Some of my hubs are in the 60s,...

I understand it difficult times but what good will deleting hubs do? I see some of the most prolific hubbers deleting heaps of hubs. Have we lost the hope of a hubpages bounce back?

Some people say you should never, ever delete a hub...only edit it and such. What makes you just completely trash your own hubs?

In the last Panda update (September 27?) I lost about 25-30% of my traffic. I'd already worked on idle hubs and removed where necessary. I decided to review my poor performing hubs - I selected all hubs with zero views...

I am thinking about deleting some of my old pieces of poetry that HP doesn't like very much--and posting them on my blog. Do I still get credit for the views that these hubs generated if I pull them??
