    Is there an option to delete a published hub?

      Open the hub, but not in edit mode.  At the top of the hub is a delete button to delete the hub.  You must be signed in to see the button.

      Hi Anvar,

      Yes, that is correct. You can only edit and delete Hubs on the desktop version of HubPages.

    Hello, India. There are lots of India folks here I believe.

    Random thoughts for beginners? I did a thread awhile back about that. I'll try to find it and paste the op here, figure odds are about 50:50 as to finding it. Stay tuned...

    Sorry, HP. But this "new" HP search function sucks. Given up on Google Custom. I will try straight Google.

    Found it! A trip down memory lane it was. The bit about the search function is obviously obsolete, but the rest of it seems to have fared pretty well. The original and replies is at

    Here's the op:

    "The Care and Feeding of Your HubPages Account

    [This is an old post of mine that I have just deleted from another site. I figured there might be some worthwhile stuff here for newbies, nothing more. Make of it what you will. big_smile

    The care and feeding of your HP account. Just some random thoughts for fellow Hubbers.

    Drop by your Q&A. Got some old questions with few answers and zero traffic in the last 30 days? Delete them.

    Sort your hub stats changed-column so as to bring the oldest non-changed hubs to the top. Go look at that oldest hub. It is guaranteed you will find something there you will want to edit. Repeat this process whenever so inclined.

    Only do one ad in each Amazon and eBay capsule.

    Do not send evil emails to the moderators.

    Check out that new Styles Tip thingy in the upper-right of your hub when in edit mode. Implement those suggestions you don’t vehemently disagree with.

    Do not scatter self-promotional links to your outside websites/blogs across your entire subdomain. If HP discovers that, bad things happen.

    Avoid excessive use of bolding and italicizing in your hubs. And this is as good a time as any about not doing that keyword-stuffing thing.

    Do not repeatedly pick on HP in the forums. Criticisms appear to be fine. But continued outright accusations is not a good idea.

    Is the text too small when you are editing one of your hubs? And your vision is tired or not that great to begin with? Do ctrl+ to make everything look bigger; can repeat more than once. It will really help in keeping your hubs from looking like a shambles when you are done editing them. Ctrl0(zero) resets back to normal.

    Keep up on the HP blog posts. Keep up on the blue-background forum posts. Telling someone to read the entire FAQ and Learning Center is kind of cruel; the thing is an encyclopedia. However, the HP search function, located at upper-left on most pages, is pretty darn good. There are two steps to it. First, do your search term in the search box. Then, to avail yourself of the entire FAQ and Learning Center, look to the right where it says “Scope your search...” and select “Help”. This will almost always give you whatever information HubPages has on your query.

    And last, but not least. Get and learn how to use a Webmasters Tool account. That way you can partially find out what Google thinks of you. And in some cases be able to do what’s needed to fix the problem.

    Do you have a care and feeding tip? Would love to hear about it. Beginner. Intermediate. Advanced."

    Edit. Don't reply there, reply here.
