You could update the contents or re-phrase the title, it might help bring traffic to your hub.
A lot of it depends on your motivation for writing the hub.
Clearly if you are writing solely to earn money from viewership then you might elect to delete the under performing hubs.
Personally I look at my writing as a "body of work" very similar to an author of books, a film actor, or recording artists. :-)
Everyone wishes they could undo something that made sense to them at the time they did it. ha ha ha
However in the case of posting hubs we do have the ability to edit them or delete them. If you stand by what you wrote or feel that it is worthwhile (especially if it was an advice hub) it may be one that helped someone get through a rough patch. You never know. Popularity isn't everything.
reena_yadav made an excellent suggestion which I have been known to do from time to time. Change the title to make it more search friendly or interesting.
You can also modify the catagory for example the hub is listed under (gender relations - single- online dating)
If the article is geared more towards women you may change the catagory to (gender relations - advice for women) or men whomever you feel might be most interested in the subject matter. The goal is to refine the catagory so that someone who is looking for hubs on a specific subject matter can easily find it.
You might also try not being "too specific" and simply list the catagory as "gender relations".
If your lower viewed hub is related in some way to one of your higher viewed hubs then you can edit the higher viewed hub and insert a link or hi-lite a word that will allow the reader to click and read the related hub. There is also a way set up your lower viewed hub to be listed in the side column under "related hubs"
Whatever you decide to do is fine.
I like to save all my work. My first hub still gets views! You can touch it up a bit. Maybe add a new picture(s) and a different title.
I agree the suggestions here are good. I changed the title on a hub and the views went ballistic. Sometimes it is just the simple things. Sit quietly and read it out loud too, that will give you a sense of flow and make sure it is readable to others.
You dont have to delete the Hubs which are not being viewed for ages, You should edit and put some spies on it and republished it to obtained traffic.
Play around with the titles, give it a week, and see what happens.
No. I would recommend updating those hubs to reflect or integrate more modern-day issues, news, etc. In this way, they may once again spark the interests of readers.
Thank you very much for the responses! In addition to this question, what happen if the Hubs have specific title but they are already outdated?
Should I change the hub altogether or just leave it? But then again, the comments attached to them will be irrelevant?!
It is not recommended to delete your hub.After its your work.

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

Recently, there was a thread of someone complaining about Hub of the Days lacking amazing writing skills. Their complaint stated the Hubs being selected were because they were niche driven and 'how too's' instead of stellar writing from the soul. The day he posted that, it was my hub that was...

How do I delete one of my unused hubs?I started writing a hub, got a couple of text modules down and then changed my mind about it. Is there a way to delete it completely rather than have it sitting there doing nothing?
