I was thinking to delete hubs which does not earn views at all after published. And try to create hubs which earn more views. Because some of my hubs are not featured at all and some are featured but not earning views.
If they are featured, leave them.
Have you tried for other sources of traffic than Google?
If they are featured I leave them unless I have some even better place to put them. The effort to make them is a sunk cost, nothing is gained by cutting off whatever little earning potential they have.
I don't delete anything. I just go back and try to improve unfeatured hubs to get them featured and increase their views. Featured hubs can always be improved too but I don't make it as much of a priority to try to improve those that are already featured.
Thank you journey, unfeatured hubs doesn't gain views at all.
Why not improve the ones you already have rather than delete them? I delete too, but only if nothing can be done
unless you are moving them to another place, don't delete. There is a Secret Unfeatured -> Featured trend going around HP. Never know when it will hit your hubs Till then keep improving and socializing
I had a couple of featured, benign political hubs that just absolutely, categorically refused to get any traffic. I finally got rid of them. And my traffic went up. However, other variables were also involved; getting rid of my dividers for example. So, who the heck knows? However, my feeling is that if I know in my heart that a hub is hopeless; featured or not, the firing squad is called in. If for no other reason, I just got sick and tired of looking at the zeros.
I agree, if I see a Hub that is not getting traffic over a period of time, I delete it and put it on that site that Bubble Busters dislike. I can make some money with it there. I used to tweak and tweak weak Hubs, but if it doesn't perform, it's a goner!

How many views, roughly, are needed to keep a hub from being unfeatured?I've noticed a lot of people complaining about hubs being unfeatured for lack of engagement.I've noticed traffic declining on some of my hubs, and I was wondering if anyone knows at what point I'd have to worry about being...

Is the Featured Hub Policy too zealous?I just had a bunch of Hubs UnFeatured due to lack of interest, including one called "Making Money During a Bear Market" that has a Hub Score of 90, with135 views over the past 7 days, and 405 views over the past 30 days. Jeeze, how much more...

Most of my hubs are getting no traffic at all, some of such hubs are basically dead - they are not even indexed by search engines.I tried to fix one of them (the blue topaz), by reducing number of products the least. Later I see it was picked up by google, but with no traffic at all.Another hub...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of priority about what to do next.Up until now I've been focused on the traffic data and...
