Just wondering if anyone has been able to get a hub featured again AND have it get decent traffic. (I realize that "decent traffic" is a subjective term. For purposes of this discussion let's just define it as traffic levels that are better than what the hub had before it was idled.) The one hub that I tweaked to bring back into a featured state has had pretty much no traffic to it since becoming featured again (and yes, it has been indexed by google). This hub did reasonably well last summer and was still getting occasional traffic at the time it was idled. This is the first and only idled hub I've tried to revive. It has only been a few weeks - perhaps it is normal for traffic to be slow to return? Just trying to determine if there is any point at all in trying to revive idled hubs. Based on what I've read in the forums my guess is the answer is no, but I figured I ought to give it a try myself before writing off the idea entirely.

As I have found today! I was led to believe that hubs of 75 and over were worth holding on to but obviously not! I just had one with a score of 81 getting the zzs!

This is a two-fold issue. I know we're in the middle of a Google Typhoon or whatever animal is wreaking havoc this month plus the summer traffic is, well, obviously somewhere else. In January/February of this year, my...

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...

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...
