A lot of Hubs are focused on the HubPages community or of interest to only the HubPages community. Several are more "social network" focused than informational, educational, or even artistic. Are these Hubs really of interest to those outside our community? When we write them, do we really expect a lot of views by outsiders generated by search engines? Does keeping these hubs idle help the status of our other hubs in search engines (and the status of the community as a whole)?

Like you, I write Hubs that are not highly searched, but have some utility to many outside of HPs. Like your Hub on tipping, I would work to keep those active. (Same true for seasonal Hubs). My tips for Hubbers Hub has little use outside HPs.
Quite a few hubs are tributes to other Hubbers, tips for Hubbers etc. I can't believe anyone outside HPs would search for these articles. Maybe if they were Zzzs it would be better individually and for the community.
