Is it good to delete hubs that are not earning views?

    I was thinking to delete hubs which does not earn views at all after published. And try to create hubs which earn more views. Because some of my hubs are not featured at all and some are featured but not earning views.

      If they are featured, leave them.

      Have you tried for other sources of traffic than Google?

        Hello wrylilt, I haven't tried for other sources like google, do you know other sources??? I am editing those hubs that had stop earning views. there are times they are getting views and others are kept stagnant.

    If they are featured I leave them unless I have some even better place to put them.  The effort to make them is a sunk cost, nothing is gained by cutting off whatever little earning potential they have.

    I don't delete anything. I just go back and try to improve unfeatured hubs to get them featured and increase their views. Featured hubs can always be improved too but I don't make it as much of a priority to try to improve those that are already featured.

        Why not improve the ones you already have rather than delete them? I delete too, but only if nothing can be done

    unless you are moving them to another place, don't delete. There is a Secret Unfeatured -> Featured trend going around HP. Never know when it will hit your hubs wink Till then keep improving and socializing big_smile

    I had a couple of featured, benign political hubs that just absolutely, categorically refused to get any traffic. I finally got rid of them. And my traffic went up. However, other variables were also involved; getting rid of my dividers for example. So, who the heck knows? However, my feeling is that if I know in my heart that a hub is hopeless; featured or not, the firing squad is called in. If for no other reason, I just got sick and tired of looking at the zeros.

      I agree, if I see a Hub that is not getting traffic over a period of time, I delete it and put it on that site that Bubble Busters dislike. I can make some money with it there.  I used to tweak and tweak weak Hubs, but if it doesn't perform, it's a goner!
