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.

I have a few hubs that I wrote about 10 years ago when I first started writing on hubpages that are not very good. They are pretty thin on content and get little or no traffic now. Some of them have even been unpublished due to lack of traffic or for quality. I am not disputing that they are not...

I've been here for two months and have only 4 hubs that have passed the 100 view mark. Should I be deleting the ones that only have 20-30 views so far?

Over 1/4 of my hubs have not been moved to a niche site. They do not have much traffic from Google, so it is not HPs fault that they have not been selected. There is nothing wrong with them, but they do not have "Google love" so are only moved in the slow process where I ask HP to move...

Some of us have mentioned deleting low-performing articles from your Hubs. I sense they do it because it increases views/impressions. How does that increase views/impressions?

Some people say you should never, ever delete a hub...only edit it and such. What makes you just completely trash your own hubs?

So I've deleted all of the idled hubs so far and am wondering when I will have none left. I'm not going to edit anymore until I see some sort of improvement in traffic. Too much trouble for no results at all. With all of the scrapers and with HP's brilliant program I'll soon have...
