I unpublished my hubs over a week ago. I used the site: command to check the site, and they are still indexed. My site views are plummeting - even including the downtime that HP experienced today. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I am a little confused by your question. Are your hubs still unpublished? This would be the reason for the plummeting traffic. It will take awhile for them to become de-indexed if that is what you are waiting for. If you unpublished them, people will still be able to click on your Hubs in the search engines such as Google, but they will not able to read your Hub. In other words, it will bring the viewers to "this page does not exist." You can wait for them to become de-indexed or you can remove them using Webmaster tools. Be warned that deleting too many hubs can cause 404 errors in your webmaster tools which could causes a drop in rankings. Even though this is a debatable topic. I hope I answered your question.

I don't go around looking for Hubs to flag, but when I come across something with glaring issues I try to be a good HP citizen and alert staff. They have, after all, continuously preached about the importance of...
