I was a bit put out by the initial Zzzz thing. My lovely writing - all a bit rubbish and unwanted. So I cheated and refreshed the pointless pages.
Now I am in the swing of it. I almost look forward to the next Z - and there have been quite a few.
Pointless, up myself, content with no purpose to anyone and no keywords too. I should have deleted or reworked them myself but the truth was I couldn't be bothered.
My income and traffic remain the same even though I have now deleted about 40 pages.
So what was the point of pages that no one visits?
Something I could go back and read myself for my own ego?
Good riddance in my opinion. They weren't good enough and now they are gone / going.
Bring 'em on HP. I'm ready with the Delete button.
What a shame you would delete your posts. Why not save them and put them on Blogger as an archive? It would bring your Hub posts more traffic, at least send people from another direction. You could even archive all your posts and just keep the busiest up on HubPages.
Your posts are unique, different from those writing about salad tongs, etc. Creative writing doesn't get a lot of traffic here but it's value is in the whole collection versus just one idle post by itself.
This is a longshot, but are you signed up with http://www.linkedin.com/ and using your hubs as a portfolio?
I think I have a linkedin login but I haven't been there in a couple of years. I'm not sure what direction I'm going in but I am writing my first attempt at a novel,. Five thousand words today. Quite pleased.
Let me know when you're done. I'll distract HP while you post a link.
Avoid LinkedIn. They phish everyone in your address book, claiming you have invited them to join LinkedIn. Took me over a year to make LinkedIn finally and fully delete my account and stop using my email address as if I were inviting people to join the site.
Good work on the book Mark. The only way to do it is to keep your butt glued to the chair and your fingers on the keyboard.
Happy 5k, Mark! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. Of course, that means I can't type anything, but it's all about supporting your friends.
Book, newspaper column, whatever. You'll smash it Mark. Britain's been waiting for a decent comedy writer since the sad death of Miles Kington.

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

How many times do you edit an idled Hub before deleting it? Or do you keep it idled so that links to it are still good? Also, for what reasons do you either leave it idled or delete it or still try to fix it? I have one...
