I have an idled Hub that is the sixth Hub in a series of five on the same subject. I have "awakened" it for now, but if it remains idled, how will that effect the other five if someone seaches for and finds one of the others and clicks on that link?
I have a temporary "bandaid" on the Hub, but you know how that is.......
Seems to me that linking to a noindex page should not be a bad thing. But who the heck knows these days...?
The links live on with traffic that comes from other sources such as social networks.
I don't think it affects the links. But since they are idle, the links most likely aren't picking up traffic. But don't quote me as I get more confused as time goes on:)
The other five Hubs are getting decent traffic, just this last one of the series never got much traffic. I can see why it was idled although I thought it was a good, informative Hub. Google just never liked it! I'm just concerned about the other five. I sure don't want to delete this Hub. If the other five Hubs are not in danger, I'll just leave it alone, I guess.

I keep on getting hubs idled despite tweaking them, changing titles and adding better keywords. I have got used to moving them to other sites such as Wizzley, Xobba and InfoBarrel but it seems to be an ongoing problem. If I keep on moving my idled hubs eventually I will hardly have any left!

Can someone explain to me how a hub with 278 comments gets booted from featured?So I noticed today that a hub I have that was getting daily views up until losing the Featured circle and has over 270 comments suddenly has lost the H circle next to it. How does that happen?

I've just had a hub idled--yes, I prefer to use this word--which has a score of 84 and over 4000 views. Its a seasonal hub and usually gets me quite a few views during the winter. I understood from the staff these would not be idled if they received traffic during their peak...

How many times do you edit an idled Hub before deleting it? Or do you keep it idled so that links to it are still good? Also, for what reasons do you either leave it idled or delete it or still try to fix it? I have one Hub which I've edited a few times, and this last time after I edited it, it...

How is it that a hub on the 'common mistakes new hubbers make' can suddenly become not featured, in spite of the fact it has had 9 views in a day, 24 views in 7 days and 35 views in the last 30 days? I only replied to comments on it both 42 hours ago and 22 hours ago (from two different hubbers)....

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...
