I have an idled Hub that is the sixth Hub in a series of five on the same subject. I have "awakened" it for now, but if it remains idled, how will that effect the other five if someone seaches for and finds one of the others and clicks on that link?
I have a temporary "bandaid" on the Hub, but you know how that is.......
Seems to me that linking to a noindex page should not be a bad thing. But who the heck knows these days...?
The links live on with traffic that comes from other sources such as social networks.
I don't think it affects the links. But since they are idle, the links most likely aren't picking up traffic. But don't quote me as I get more confused as time goes on:)
The other five Hubs are getting decent traffic, just this last one of the series never got much traffic. I can see why it was idled although I thought it was a good, informative Hub. Google just never liked it! I'm just concerned about the other five. I sure don't want to delete this Hub. If the other five Hubs are not in danger, I'll just leave it alone, I guess.

This is a two-fold issue. I know we're in the middle of a Google Typhoon or whatever animal is wreaking havoc this month plus the summer traffic is, well, obviously somewhere else. In January/February of this year, my...

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...

I've just had a hub idled--yes, I prefer to use this word--which has a score of 84 and over 4000 views. Its a seasonal hub and usually gets me quite a few views during the winter. I understood from the staff...

I had a hub idled about a week ago, a dumpy old hub that I didn't like anyway. I've let it sit idled since then, trying to decide what to do with it. Sorting the stats screen with the "featured"...
