I have published more than 30 hubs. Of those almost 5 hubs have just 5 to 10 page views a month. More over the hub score is also low. Is deleting those hubs a right decision?
No. Never delete a hub unless it's an incredibly bad one that makes you cringe.
The older a hub is the more traffic it (generally) gets. It can take 2-3 years for a hub to reach full potential.
I agree with Wrylilt - revamp and update, make them better, but don't delete unless they are absolute stinkers that just can't be salvaged. Some of my best performers are older hubs.
If it's UnFeatured, delete it. If not, don't. As Wrylilt says, you never know when it may suddenly recover.
The effort you have made to create these hubs cannot be recovered. So why not leave them up and get what you can from them? Who knows, they might suddenly find a readership? You never know.
Keeping or deleting a hub depends on a few factors...
If you are proud of what you wrote and wrote it for your own reasons keep it....
If you want money then you need hubs that attract traffic, if your hub has no chance of attracting traffic and does not add to your portfolio then delete it.....
Learn to use google keyword tool so that you can see if anyone searches for what you write about. How many people do you think type in "IC 79xx - Negative Voltage Regulator" to the search box in google? None?? If no one searches for what you write about you need to change the title and the content to reflect what people do search for. The keyword tool will give you some ideas as to what people do search for, if you don't know how to use it just search on HP using the search box at the top and you will find plenty of hubs on the subject..
You also have to consider competition for your keywords, if there are many thousands of searches how many other sites are after those visitors - do the search on google and see who populates the first page - if they are well established dedicated sites then you will likely have little chance of getting on the first page by using HP..
Don't just delete - check first and modify titles and content and see what happens - But do your homework first!!
I feel differently. I do delete my lower performing hubs, but only when they really aren't doing well here and I know I have somewhere else that they would perform better.
I don't delete nothin'. Even my lowest trafficked hub still gets a couple of random page views every month.
HP is the only place I post stuff so if I take anything down I have nowhere to move it to. I don't have the time or the patience to learn how to set up my own blog or site and even if I did, the stuff would probably be ignored there just as much as it is here.

I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an...

In a forum I read recently someone commented that Google looks down on your subdomain if it contains many poor articles. But how do I tell which is considered poor?Can I tell by hubscore? Some of my hubs are in the 60s,...

I just recently went through my many hubs and came to realize that almost every hub I did involving youtube videos had broken links. So I went to go fix the links only to find that these hubs were lame. I...

Just wanted to know, have you ever deleted any of your non-performing hubs?

Could non-performing hubs that are not getting views (and have never got many) be affecting how well my other hubs perform? Should I delete them and unpublish them? My traffic is not in a good position right now at all...

I have been weeding out some of my under performing hubs and I have also been tweaking the titles of my remaining hubs. Over the last two weeks I have seen my hubs page views increase by 25% - 50%, even on weekends...
