Should we delete hubs with little to no views each month? Are they worth keeping?
Keep them. You may want to tweak them later, and they will count toward your accocades.
You have to ask yourself why you wrote that hub in the first place. Sure, we want views, but it's also something you've spent time over. If it had no views then look at the reasons why. What is the subject matter - is it topical or interesting? Do a keyword check or 'Title Tuner'. The key words might not be right for seo. What about the content - how many words does it have, does it have a beginning middle and end and does it have catchy photographs? Make sure you go back to dormant hubs and add to them. Share them again with followers, and comment on other hubs too. Do some backlinking to your stuff and hopefully you'll get some hits. But never delete! Good luck.
I have had a few hubs that received no traffic suddenly start receiving traffic. That is why I would never delete a hub that I spent time and effort to create.
Keep them!! they're your writings, i say. I mean i am still new here and when i joined in i had mentally preped meself about having little to no visits to my pages because i don't really have the knack for commercial writing. No best of this and top10 that(no offense intended). So, i thought you know what this will just be a way for me to practice more and have constructive criticisms along the way if it does get read. Don't get rid of them
If your hub is good, then you should opt for multiple ways to promote it. Deleting the hub is not an option.
This is a complex question, actually. A lot depends on where you are in your internet journey.
Did you research your keywords before choosing your subject? Did you assess the competition before deciding whether it was worth writing a Hub? If you did, so you know it's a subject people are looking for and the subject isn't saturated, it's worth beefing up the Hubs, increasing the interlinking between related ones, and doing some serious off-site promotion.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, or you think the "competition" column in the Adsense tool tells you how much competition YOU are up against (which it doesn't), then you need to do a bit more study so you can get a better idea which Hubs are worth making the effort on.

I was thinking to delete hubs which does not earn views at all after published. And try to create hubs which earn more views. Because some of my hubs are not featured at all and some are featured but not earning views.
