Hi fellow Hubbers. I just had a question about stats. I just started here recently and have only posted three hubs. One of them I deleted because it came back as duplicate and forgot I had already posted it elsewhere. The stats however are still showing views as though it's still available to be read. Is this just a glitch or can it still be viewed by using certain keywords and how do I completely delete the duplicate hub from my account? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
It sounds like you didn't delete the Hub, but just unpublished it. If the Hub is still showing on your accounts page, you didn't delete it.
Is there a line through the Hub title on the stats page? If not, then it is not deleted. Click on the title - DO NOT CLICK "EDIT" - at the top you should see 'edit', 'stats', 'delete'. Click 'delete' and when you see 'okay', click that to verify it - if you are positive.
If they are unpublished but you are still looking at the, that will be counted.
If you deleted it, Hubpages leaves it for 24 hours, just in case you change your mind. If it has the line through it, it is deleted, just not completely gone.
Thanks for the feedback. That makes sense now about the 24 hour period because it does have a line through it.

I just want to make sure I am clear on the transition information. My stuff transferred overnight, so that means that I have 4 months to clear up skulls etc before the hubs get moderated, correct?I am going to have to completely revamp quite a few former lenses due to the fact that much of my...

I just recently went through my many hubs and came to realize that almost every hub I did involving youtube videos had broken links. So I went to go fix the links only to find that these hubs were lame. I started deleting all hubs that don't generate traffic or are just plain...

Have you ever chosen to delete any of your hubs?If so, why? Did it have the affect that you were looking for?

Whenever I look at the Q&A "explore answers" section, I see questions that are still there after five years or more. Sometimes the questions are extremely stagnant and inactive. I think it would be a good idea to auto delete questions that are over a year old on an ongoing basis just...
