Bye bye substandard hub .... and thanks for all the cash ...

    I just decided to 'abandon' one particular hub.  It was nothing special, just a random scribbling from another perspective.

    It sat there quietly doing..... well, quite frankly, not a lot.

    Then came the Hubpages quality overhaul - and it took a hammering.  I did try to amend it.  I removed the (one) affiliate link, I removed ALL the ebay and Amazon capsules.  I went through all the comments deleting any that linked elsewhere, even if they were marked as spam.

    It was as clean as a whistle.... but I couldn't get it republished because, quite frankly, it didn't pass muster smile

    So, bye bye my substandard hub - for I never loved you anyway....

    But I did run a quick Google report and it did quietly make me $50 over the four years it was published - which probably isn't a bad return on the 30 minutes that one took me to produce.

    So bye bye .... but I still banked some cash.

    A sad story-- though you have seen the brighter side--  but can't you add more 'quality' and revive it?

      No.  It's one of those "banned subjects" where the article has to be of outstanding quality and information, so needs somebody better than me scribbling smile
