A Memorial Thread for Your Defunct Pet Hubs

    Do you have a hub that you know is a permanent traffic loser, but it is also one of your favorite pets that has accompanied you through your writer travails throughout the years?

    Did you finally drag it out behind the barn and sic the firing squad on it?

    Do you want public sympathy and to be complimented for your brave actions?

    Would you also like to perform a public service and reveal why you think Google hated one of your favorite pets?

    If so, then this is the thread for you.


    I, myself, have just perpetrated such an action.

    The hub topic was about an aspect of religion; the hub provided no useful or worthwhile information; the hub was significantly less than 200 words. Nuff said...

      It's not necessarily a hub that should be dragged out behind the barn and shot, it still garners some traffic here & there, but gosh darnit, I love this hub and just wanted to share my "pet hub," with you... the comments section is a myriad of horribleness, (seriously, how do you step on an animal so hard it causes it to die?, and once more, how do you comfort someone who has lost a pet in this manner?,) and was my first experience with repeat commenters.

    Mine had a whole bunch of comments, too. 25, to be exact. But with 6 views in 30 days, probably all of them mine, and a score of 69; as soon as QAP stumbled across it, it was doomed anyway.

    I personally was sad to see my rant about L.A.'s policy of ticketing cars parked at broken meters, but it was time.  BLAM!  Lights Out!

      Sounds like an excellent blog candidate. That's where mine is going.

    And another one bites the dust. Over-saturated topic. Too short. Terrible hub score. No traffic. And was never even a pet to begin with.

    Changing it into a half-dozen, separate blog posts. Oddly, each individual post will not be an over-saturated topic; it's only when they are all grouped together under one topic heading. And every one of those separate blog posts is going to have some sort of affiliate link embedded in it.
