what do you guys do with them? i have some Christmas hubs that are just milling around not doing anything. is it ok to rewrite them as new hubs, taking out the Christmas references, then deleting them after i cull the info, or is this considered copying? do you just save them to be reused at Christmas? i have a bunch of Halloween hubs which obviously i cannot reinvent as they are too specifically Halloween, but these Christmas hubs could be revised, if that is not inappropriate.
Cosette, I'm pretty sure I recall Mark and Nelle saying they write their seasonal Hubs at least six months before the day, so that Google has plenty of time to rank them properly. So I'd say, just let them sit there till Christmas.
Cosette, I agree with Marisa!
I intentionally wrote a group of cooking hubs in March related to Thanksgiving dinner recipes, and I got the idea from reading Nelle's hubs.
If all goes well, they will be well aged by November and I will experience the benefits!
Like a fine wine, hubs get better with age
As with all seasonal Hubs that I have, I just let them wait until that same time next year. A well-written, season-specific Hub can be a glorious traffic and cash cow. If you do plan to refresh or update anything, be sure to do so about 3-4 months ahead of the active season.
I have one sarcastic hub about shopping during Christmas time that totally spiked again last year. Just leave your old ones and write new ones whenever you are so inspired.
hey, thanks you guys! i will just let them sit and age, like fine wine then see what happens come Christmas.
My x-mas tree hub is still getting some traffic.

Do you think it is better to unpublish seasonal Hubs? They won't get traffic during the year, so I'm wondering if it would be better to unpublish those until the next season. I am thinking about...

I have a couple of seasonal posts (about the holidays), and I think perhaps I should unpublish them. If I do, how will it affect my overall Hub score? Also, will I be able to re-publish them for the holidays next year?

Should these now be unpublished (not deleted) until time for them next year?

I would really like to know a definite answer for this question. I have always observed that whenever i publish a hub few days before the event the hub is about it gets high ranking in SERPS in google. But...
