I am considering unpublishing one of my low-performing Hubs, change it up a bit, and publish it elsewhere. I'm sure there are some issues to consider, however, such as the Hub being indexed already in search engines, having a negative effect on my overall Hub score, and who knows what else.
So...any suggestions on the best way to go about this? Is it as simple as unpublishing it and waiting a while for search engines to NOT find it (return a 404 not found page instead of my Hub) ? Perhaps changing the title and making enough changes to the actual article is enough to prevent duplicate content issues with Google ???
Thanks for any assistance offered.
You copy and save it first. copy and save the hub url too. Then delete it from HP. I go to the google url removal tool and use that too. Then in a few days all you see is the 404 page come up.
