I have posted several Amber Alerts for missing children. I notice alot of traffic upon first posting but then it declines. Should I delete these hubs when the child if found, etc. are the low scores 50-60 of these hubs affecting my overall score?
If the child has been found, you could note that they have been found and leave it. Though I would tend to delete it, because it really isn't serving a purpose.
You could have one hub for amber alerts and just update it as needed. That way it would always be serving a purpose and would be pretty current.
For something such as an amber alert. If the child is already found but your hub is still up, a person may see it and unknowningly report a found child. So ya, for those I would say pull them down.
For other hubs that do not get traffic. Don't delete. If the topic is something that is still relevant then just put some time back into it.
Add a text capsule and paragraph to it then submit it to a ping service to let search engines know that it has new content.
Leave a few comments with the url in the website box, submit to SB, write a shorter article and submit it with the link to ezines, infobarrel, etc.
A hub that does not get traffic today but that is evergreen topic may be found useful later on down the road and traffic will pick back up with a little encouragement.
I unpublished 4 hubs that there was no use for anymore and my overall score when up 2 points!
I polished up a hub for which I found new information and the hub score plummeted. The hub was getting about 87 hits a week but hubs that only got 7 a week were rated higher. I feel like I am being demoted for fixing up a hub for which new information was available. So what's up with that?
Traffic makes you money, not hubscores. Focus on what your traffic tells you about your hubs not the hubscore.
what is evergreen content darkside? and I don't make money becuse my google app was denied and I don't know when to re-appy, I am just full of idk's
Content like what you've described as well as some news articles, are quickly dated.
Evergreen content doesn't quickly date. It's information that you can publish and pretty much leave as is, without having to continually go back and change details or add information. Or delete if the information is no longer needed. Read What is "evergreen content"? for more information.
And while it may be a noble effort to post information about missing persons, I'm not sure if it's helping the situation. Maybe if you wrote a hub about the impact of a person gone missing and the emotional effect it has on family and friends. Have information about what a person should do if someone they know goes person. What steps to take. And have a link to bonafide sites that has up-to-the-minute information about missing persons.
That might be the best way to approach the subject. If any of those sites have an RSS feed you could add it.

So my triangle hub had steadily increasing traffic until mid June. Now traffic is less than 20% of what it was.Why would traffic decrease so much for an evergreen hub?

Some people say you should never, ever delete a hub...only edit it and such. What makes you just completely trash your own hubs?

It is advantageous to delete one's own low scoring hubs that have little traffic. I figure getting rid of the low score would increase the average of the rest of one's hubs.What do you think?

I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an...
