How to deal with Non-Performing Hubs?
How to deal with the hubs that are not performing well, that are not getting a good amount of traffic? Such hubs should be deleted? If we keep those hubs, are they gonna affect the performance of other hubs which are performing well?
If you have hubs that aren't performing well try to determine why they aren't. Does your title not fit the content. Search your title in google and see what other results you get. If you find several websites with better information then you might want to change your title. Try using the Google Keyword Tool to find things that are more search friendly.
I've been editing and rewriting several of my hubs and have found a few that I wrote when I just started out that are more personal and not of much use to anybody (and got very few views). I've saved the content on my computer and deleted the hubs. I might use some of the information in a later hub but not right now.
Try linking relevant hubs together. I have several poems published here and a few didn't get very many views. I linked some of my more popular poems to them and they've already started to see a rise in traffic.
If we keep those hubs, are they gonna affect the performance of other hubs which are getting more traffic?
Hi Dilip, yes the total hub score is affected by all the hubs you have published. So if you have a few hubs that are low in score the total score will be diminished as well.
Hello Curiad, if total score is affected negatively by the hubs that are low in score, will that gonna affect the hubs that are performing well?
That I am not sure of Delip, the scoring system is confusing at best and I am not sure anyone has a complete picture of how it works.
I don't think it affects the traffic of your other hubs unless those hubs link to them. It can affect your hubberscore though.
Google Analytics as previously suggested is a huge help when it comes to determining "historical traffic". You can really see patterns, as well as where the traffic came from in a detailed manner across a time period you specify. The hub pages "Traffic Sources" is a snapshot compared to google analytics.

Could non-performing hubs that are not getting views (and have never got many) be affecting how well my other hubs perform? Should I delete them and unpublish them? My traffic is not in a good position right now at all...

I have published more than 30 hubs. Of those almost 5 hubs have just 5 to 10 page views a month. More over the hub score is also low. Is deleting those hubs a right decision?

Is there any advantage in deleting one's low or non-performing Hubs?
