I have a couple of section of hubs that don't get much traffic, would it be wise to delete or possibly move - they are off the beaten path hubs. I don't actively promote them. Am I hurting myself by keeping them?
Deleting your hubs is a kinda drastic measure
You can always tweak a hub or even re-write the whole thing if the url for it is a good one
I see that you joined 4 weeks ago, not really all that long for your hubs to get out there. You may find any one of them will come to life in time when they catch the eye of searchers. You can always just have a look at tags to see if you can find better ones or just be patient and see what happens while writing new hubs. If you do delete them you might want to save the text somewhere so that you don't lose all that work.
Unless you're here for backlinks to other sites, your hubber score and hub score aren't that important. Since I don't use HP for backlinks, I don't spend any time worrying about either one.
My experience here is that there is no relationship to those and outside traffic or earnings.
I would never delete a hub to raise either one.
I would have to say that your low traffic hubs, have low traffic for a reason?
You have been here ONLY 4 weeks, yet you have 118 HUB?
This would tell me that the quality of your hubs would be a little on the lower level.
Please check out the Extreme Hub Makeover Forum thread and put up a few links at a time and get some critics to review your hubs.
It's just a thought?

It is advantageous to delete one's own low scoring hubs that have little traffic. I figure getting rid of the low score would increase the average of the rest of one's hubs.What do you think?

I have had a few hubs moved to various niche sites with hub scores ranging from 69 to 87. I feel I have much better hubs remaining on the original site than some of those selected to move, especially my latest which was...

My hub that seems most popular with over 52,000 reads is at the bottom of my hubs with a 69 and it has been 70's so I sharpened it up some just to have it fall. How can this be? I hate to delete it but I think that is...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

Yesterday I spent some time deleting some of my Hubs that were performing badly is this a good idea as my Hub score seems to have taken a big hit.
