Should you ever delete your hubs?
Is there ever a time you should delete one of your hubs, or should you just add to things you've written and not take away? Is there a benefit either way?
I always try to add to, to revise and make better. Maybe that's just me. I don't like to get rid of things I've created. See what others say.... Interesting topic.
I have unpublished a few of my hubs, but never could bring myself to delete any. I just can't seem to part with them. Others I have unpublished, edited, and published again.
I had to delete one hub when i was very new here and it had some violations. Yesterday night, i unpublished one of my hubs but i don't think i will delete it- AM just doing some editing and i will republish it again
No real reason to delete unless for some reason you do not feel the hub is of you standards aside from getting a violation and having to remove it just keep revising and updating to keep your hubs current and up to date or focus else where but no real benefit to nuke them.

That way I didn't lose my piece of work for real and other Hubs I always try to improve. Deleting a Hub in general, is a drastic measure. I would do so if there's no other way of improving.

I have a quick question. If I unpublish a hub, does Google "see" that it's still sitting in my account and thus punish me for it, or should I be totally deleting hubs that I decide are not garnering enough traffic? Some of them I'd like to keep around until I get the time to...

I started writing a hub a week ago, and decided to delete it. I deleted it about 4 or 5 days ago, but it is still showing up. Usually, they disappear after a day or so, but this one is still there. Is there a glitch somewhere, or is there a reason it is still there?

Do you have hubs that stay at the bottom of your hub list no matter what you do to them? Is it the unappealing subject matter, boring content, too short, oversaturated topic, poetry, or something else? I have about 5 or 6 at the bottom of my barrel of 83 hubs. I'm curious about why and wonder if...
