I have several hubs about the dearly departed Bubblews. Now that the site has closed down, search traffic to those hubs will sooner or later go to zero. My thought is that when they are eventually unfeatured for lack of traffic, I won't try to resuscitate them, but I will leave them published so that any links to them won't be broken.
Is there any reason to unpublish these hubs when they go unfeatured?
All that happens when they are unfeatured is that they are no longer indexed in the search engine, meaning Google can't see them and don't crawl them. So, really it's a benefit if the Hub is basically obsolete to have it invisible. There's no detriment anyway. I do it, leave unfeatured Hubs unfeatured, and it hasn't had any bad effect.

I've never had only 1 $ on a hub before! This week end I published my first short story and thought the 1 $ was because short story hubs pay terribly low - even lower than poetry hubs! Then I published...
