    Should I delete all hubs that aren't about my key subjects?

    I want to start focusing on 2 key subjects however my more personal and vent hubs produce more hub traffic to my page. So is it wise to delete my personal hubs? Some of my current ones are controversial. I don't know what to do.

    It's completely up to you to decide. At the beginning of this month I deleted all my Hubs that were related to HP as the traffic was just an initial boost then nothing. But, since you say that your hubs are doing well keep them. But, focus on the 2 key subjects instead from now on.

    I don't think you should delete any hubs at all,if there are some that you are not satisfied with you can always go back in improve them .and what do you mean controversial?I've read many of your hubs and I don't see anything wrong with them, now as far as controversy, I believe writing is a form of expression andyou should first and foremost remain truthful to yourself and your beliefs, there will people who agree and people who don't but controversy should be a goal in writing not a setback.

    Maybe you should consider having a separate HP for the topics you want to focus on, but I don't think you should delete hubs you have already published.

    It's a good question. I have been thinking myself about either getting another HP account for different subjects, or moving some stuff to a blog. As I get more hubs on various topics it seems like followers of one niche may not be enticed if they come to my profile page and don't see the niche they are interested in featured there. I wish HubPages gave us some control over which subjects are featured on the profile page.

    Controversy brings traffic and with traffic comes revenue. You might not want to delete any hubs because you might have a url that is popular in searches and you wouldn't want to give up that url to someone else. Usually if a hub is getting good hits than they are working for the hubber. Even if you are going to switch over ot only two main subjects keeping your old hubs might be a good idea just to keep the hits coming in on them. Perhaps you could link your new hubs to them to draw traffic around you work. I was going to delete hubs that had nothing to do with what I normally write with at one time, but someone also told me that the url if it is bringing in traffic might be a good url that is popular and since you have it drawing the traffic in you can still get hits on those.

    You also have to take into consideration that your current hubs are cached and paged on google which is giving you (and your name) apperance around the web.

    Though it is a personal option on what you wish to do, you have to think if you only want those specific key subjects only and not your old hubs floating around.
