Hmm, strange, the title has been truncated after publishing the thread. Anyway originally it said;
Will deleting my hubs with score of <70 improve traffic?
I read that this could be the case. Is it true? I do have some hubs that have pretty low scores and don't see much traffic. At the moment I don't worry about them, I don't have any idle hubs so I have just let things as they are. If deleting the underperforming hubs will help my subdomain for example, then I'd do it, but is this really something that could happen, or should I just leave the poor hubs on, as they still get some traffic?
It's just going off something I read the other day, which said score is related to traffic and that <70 score hubs drag the whole lot down. It seems a bit implausible to me, as I know google generally takes a page on its own merits, but I thought I'd ask just in case there is any truth to it. As it happens at the moment I only have 1 hub that is ranked at below 70 in any case.
I do have some hubs that don't get much traffic though, but I can't really see how deleting them would help the others out, but it is something I've read before on here a few times, not sure if it's just something that is promoted by hubpages themselves just to improve the site.
The top dozen hubs of my stats, sorted for hub score, show a 24 hour traffic # of between 50 and...wait for it...0 views. I assure you that out of 150 hubs I have more than 12 that get traffic - the top 100, sorted for traffic, still show a positive, non-zero 24 hour traffic number.
There is probably a correlation between score and traffic, but if so it is a weak one!
The only thing to concerned about with scores is that a hubber score of <75 OR a hub score <40 will result in no-follow links. Outside of that, there is no reason to even look at them.
It's a tough one. HubPages obviously thinks there is some advantage in getting rid of low-traffic Hubs, because they've implemented the "Idle Hubs" feature. Most of the internet entrepreneurs I know, disagree violently with that theory! And since their websites are doing well, I am inclined to follow their view.
I can't see deleting hubs if you feel they are good quality ones. The score can fluctuate so much that it doesn't mean anything. I have a hub that goes up and down all the time. It's been at 100 several times, but has been down to 70 too. Just ignore scores.

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to...

I looked at my hub scores today and cried. They have been falling steadily for two weeks from 70's & 80's to 60's and 70's with one 59. Today, one of my hubs has fallen to a 50. HP is sending me...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they...

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be....
