Deleted two hubs!

    I just deleted two of my Hubs today. It doesn't feel good. Maybe I should undelete it before the time runs out?

      Depends - why did you delete them?

      I have deleted one of my Hubs since joining two months ago, but only because it was dated and just plain wrong.

      I had made a prediction that the Texas Rangers would win the World Series. So, not only was I wrong but the popularity of that topic has long since passed.

      That being said, I don't think there really is any benefit to deleting your Hubs that I know of, so if you think there is any chance that some day someone might visit it and click on an ad or buy a product, it probably can't hurt to leave it.

    They weren't getting enough traffic from either HB or Google. I was totally new here when I wrote them. They were my first two hubs here, on HB! I guess it's okay now. I'll replace them with newer, better ones, hopefully! smile

    Good attitude, Don - always room for improvement!

    Personally, I'd keep them whether they're getting a lot of traffic or not.  Even if they're getting 4-5 views a week, that's still something.  And 4 weeks time isn't enough to evaluate whether or not a hub is worth it.  You should wait -AT LEAST- six months before you decide to delete something.

    What you can do is optimize the title tags and description in order to rank for good keywords.

    Edit: Here's an image of traffic for one of my hubs.  You can see it takes a couple months to start to pick up.  http://i51.tinypic.com/kvl2u.jpg
