Deleting Hubs With Outdated Information

    I have two hubs about Bubblews that I have decided to delete after checking to see what Google has to say.  For one thing, Bubblews has changed drastically, so the information, for the most part is no longer true.  Therefore, it has little to none in regards to value.  The second one, is old news, and of no real value at this point. So, why keep material that is not up to date, especially when writing about another site.

      Remember that when you delete a hub you lose  all the hits on that hub which lowers your total. Maybe unpublish them first that way the hits on those are still counted.

    I have deleted them already. There was no point in simply unpublishing them.  I did a lot of deleting today, including blogs.

      You can chop them up into 100 character short articles and post them in Bubblews big_smile

        I won't waste anymore time with Bubblews. I just deleted over 300 posts there.

        Bubblews will reject them as duplicate content.

          You are right. Maybe she could wait until the hubs are completely de-indexed from search engines.

      I do the same thing. I delete old hubs that don't provide any further reader value. I did a mass delete after the initial Pander attack in 2011 and it seemed to help increase traffic to my other hubs. At least the only thing you lose is the statistics. It's not like on Bubblews were you actually have to pay them back.
