I'm trying to decide when to put a particular hub or two out of their (and my) misery. I need a few good suggestions as to what the cutoff point should be. I'm thinking a score of 60 or below means the death penalty. I don't what a bunch of decrepid hubs hanging around just to be able to say I've got so much in volume.
LOL I'm not a hubber yet. But I'm for the killing
I would say either re-write, edit or re-shape the Hubs on the topics. I disagree with killing or deletion of hubs. Not everyone is always interested in the same topics, but there are plenty of people who will be looking for something on the topic and if you at least covered it pretty good, then you get views and possibly clicks.
Plus, remember, you do not only get paid for clicks, but also views(at a low fee, but still adds up).
So, I would change whatever hub it is about or work on keywords + SEO, to make the hub better.
Just my thoughts.
I have almost no Hubs with scores in the 60s anymore, due to going back and fixing them.
Deleting a Hub loses any backlinks or status with the search engines. And search engines love when you go back, add content and make something better.
That's just my $0.02...
I sometimes do kill off Hubs, especially if they're old or irrelevant. The most mass deletion occurred when I put my unFiction thing on the back burner for awhile.
The only suggestion I have is to save all your work as an HTML file and back it up for future use--you just never know when it may come in handy again!
But I agree with relache--spicing up a Hub and changing the tone and content is a great idea, too. This is a world of zero archive and revisionist history, after all.
I agree with the mass opinion here... edit rather than delete. I need to go over several of my earlier hubs and try to get them up to par.
I do have a few that I've written for pure personal fulfillment, and those, I don't worry about where the score is. They just hang on at the bottom of my list and make me smile.
Ixxy - "Revisionist History", eh? Interesting... I think this phrase may sum up all my fears about the fact that people seem to do 90% of their research on Wikipedia.
Excellent advice form excellent sources. I'll delete them
I agree with the majority, edit,edit, and edit again, rather than delete always.
But, I would like to add in one more tidbit. If they are seasonal hubs like many of mine, just, "ignore them until the season comes back around." I.e. not many people are searching for "Christmas gifts" right now.

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...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or...
