When do you delete a hub?
I have a few hubs that just aren't doing anything. They haven't been viewed in a month. I am tempted to delete these hubs, but they are only a couple of months old. What is your criteria for deleting a hub? Do inactive hubs pull down your score?
I don't think I would ever delete a hub....edit yes, but delete no. Have you tried going back and editing those hubs, maybe spicing them up with additional keywords/tags to get hits from Google? Or maybe changing the category location of your hub? I think that could generate new volume as well. Sometimes one of my hubs isn't viewed for a week or more and then the next day it's viewed 30 times...so it definitely varies. Unless you absolutely hate your hubs and regret writing them, I really don't see a reason to delete your hard work.
Don't delete it, just unpublish it, edit it and then republish. Chances are if you put some new information in it, it might end up turning out better.
It might not get viewed by other hubbers on here, but it could get picked up by search engines if the topic is good enough.
I have hubs I printed ages ago still getting found in the search engines so just to some tweaking on it.
Add photos or videos if applicable ...
It is really helpful ....
Great suggestions. I've used the Title Tuner on a few hubs and have done some rewording to add additional keywords. Pictures and videos are next on the list.

Should I delete Hubs which are not being viewed for ages?

My hub that seems most popular with over 52,000 reads is at the bottom of my hubs with a 69 and it has been 70's so I sharpened it up some just to have it fall. How can this be? I hate to delete it but I think that is...

I am thinking about deleting most and almost all my hubs and moving them to another hub account but I have a couple of questions. Please can you try to answer most if not all of the questions I asked... Thank You soo...

Yesterday I spent some time deleting some of my Hubs that were performing badly is this a good idea as my Hub score seems to have taken a big hit.

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

Have you ever chosen to delete any of your hubs?If so, why? Did it have the affect that you were looking for?
