Should we delete our under-performing hubs and how many of you do this?
I have recently deleted a hub I published a long time ago and which had a pretty low score.
After doing this, my author hubscore went up dramatically...
Therefore, my question is pretty simple and it concerns the fact that these low-score hubs have a bad impact on our score. However, I don't know if there is a rule of some kind about deleting hubs...?
In most cases, the same results could be achieved through revision. There is no general rule that I know of. One situation where deletion might be desirable is where a hub has become unpopular and has been voted down enough times to hurt the score.
I don't think I'll be deleting any of my hubs. They show the history of your time here, what works and what doesn't and so on. Website Examiner makes a good point about the potential tfor revising past content though, so that's something to consider.
I'm not sure how I feel about Hubpages raises your hubscore when you delete low scoring content. I guess from their perspective it helps them insure that there is a high standard to the content published on their site.
I changed the title on a couple of my under performing hubs and views began to climb again.

I have published more than 30 hubs. Of those almost 5 hubs have just 5 to 10 page views a month. More over the hub score is also low. Is deleting those hubs a right decision?

I just got back into creating Hubs and I notice I have about 5 of 10 not getting much performance at all. I was wondering if it's advisable to just delete them, or try and revive two year old hubs.Thanks

When do you throw in the towel and delete non-performing hubs due to lack of traffic.i recently took two hubs to the cemetery because I had updated them 3 or 4 times, but still no visitors.
