is there a time to retire a hub?

    I have several christmas hubs and a couple poetry hubs that seem to spend a lot time at the bottom of the list of hubs as far as score goes.  Then, they will go up in score for a minute, and then work their way back down. 
    Is it better to just take the off, delete them? or just leave them on to do whatever they might do.  Does a couple of hubs that maintain a score of 60 or 58 do anything to your overall score?

    I have a couple that low, as well as a XMas hub. All the advice I've read is to keep them posted.
    I've been editing my worst ones to get them a little higher but they are obscure topics that do not get any Google traffic.
    I'll be watching to see the advice pour in... lol

    The only time I have gotten rid of hubs is when they are out of date.  Christmas hubs are seasonal, but unless they are specifically aimed at 2009, not out of date.

    So even though three or four hubs out of 50 may not be viewed at all for say a week, it will not effect my overall score enough to matter or cause any problems with the financial aspects?

      Nope, doesnt matter. Your score has no bearing on your earnings anyway.

    You might as well keep them up!

    Over the year you might make an occasional sale, and next Christmas the Hubs will be well placed in the search engines for hte seasonal earnings!
