I have heard it suggested that having low-traffic hubs hurts our overall domain in the eyes of the search engines. Thus, the theory behind idled hubs (at least part of it.) Does the same apply for questions that we have asked, that may not receive much traffic? I am wondering if having questions might ultimately have a detrimental effect.
I have also been concerned about that. So much so that I've deleted a whole bunch of mine. I might even do more.
We no index low traffic questions so they shouldn't hurt you unless they're spammy.
One of my questions has over 5000 page views. Webmaster Tools says I have quite a few URLs not found. I assume these are no indexed questions, as my hubs are all indexed. Should we leave our questions alone or delete some low traffic ones ourselves? I have 237 questions on that site.
Some of my questions are on Google Analytics getting some traffic.
