Why would you unpublish a hub?
I have heard a lot about people unpublishing hubs, but I don't understand why a person would do it. What's the benefit? Thanks.
I've read some hubs that suggest that by unpublishing hubs with low scores, your hub score improves.
Hubbing is a learning process. It takes time to understand what really works, and what hubs are meant to be. I have unpublished a couple of early hubs that lacked in both, quality and visitors. I didn't feel like sprucing those up, so I just deleted them.
I'm not sure if there are any other reasons to unpublish a hub, but there is my reasoning.
I've probably unpublished or outright deleted more than twenty hubs in the past month or two.
Most of those I simply moved to one of my blogs on blogger because they really shouldn't have ever been hub pages to begin with, but rather, blogs.
In other words - if something isn't performing well here, then my subdomain will benefit from me getting rid of it. I seldom just delete something from the entire web - but I've done that too. I generally like stuff I created enough to just move it to another place...where it still might get an advert click or something some day.
I've also got several hubs unpublished due to me learning new things which allow me to see ....tons of bad information on those hubs that needs to be corrected....
A few scenarios necessitate unpublishing of hubs. Older hubs with low score and poor quality on topics that are no longer relevant are better removed from your account. Else, they will bring down your hubber score. HubPages says so. If the web address entered is incorrect, there is no other way to rectify it other than unpublish the hub and start a new one with the same content. I am sure there are more reasons, but they elude me now.
I've been unpublishing/delete low performing articles; however, I did try tweaking keywords, adding videos, maps, quizzes and so forth to improve traffic before making a final decision. Much as it pains me to admit it, not everything I write is popular with my audience:)

I know that our own views are counted on the stats page but I have not opened this hub to edit it today and yet I can see that I have had four visits!

First off, my hubs are transferred from Squidoo, and I am aware of various issues there. I'd already checked and edited hubs after the transition, so this is all post transfer.What I don't understand is why some...

At the beginning of February, I had my hub on the Chinese New year removed because, apparently, it had 'unrelated products.' As the only products were made of jade, and as jade is considered extremely lucky in the new...
