The new rule-check out the non performing hubs. How do you look at it?
I am here only since 4 months. But people here have published over 100 hubs. Do'nt you think it will be quite difficult task for them?
I love this little new feature. It saves me analyzing views trying to determine which hubs i need to fiddle with.
It also helps work out which topics are consistently view highly and poorly.
The ZZZ'S symbol makes it easy for us hubbers who have 100's of hubs, by simply showing us which one's are sleeping (Idle) hubs, which means the hubs that are performing low, and are not being sourced (Not Indexed) by the search engines.
The green dot indicator shows us which hubs are performing high, and are getting shared on the search engines, as well as being featured on hubpages in many locations.
Then there is the double rounded arrows they help us to see which hubs aren't yet fully published yet.
When you have many hubs done, these indicators help us easily scroll through which hubs are which, and so these differing indicators make if fairly simple to detect the presence of such criteria stated up above, and so that we can act as we see fit to make any changes to low performing hubs, or to do nothing at all and simply watch the hub traffic flow.

Thought the processing period for new hubs was 24 hours. Mine has been 37 hours now which has prevented it going on its topics latest hubs.
I believe HP has some kind of algorithm to automatically analyze hubs for certain characteristics. It will be a learning curve for HP staff meaning it will improve as feedback is received over the coming months. I myself love this new feature as it gives me an incentive to improve my writing further so I publish more successful hubs. As well, I can easily see which hubs require tweaking or just need to be updated to make them more prolific!
This new feature will encourage us to at least read our work over months later after they are published to see if we are still in agreement with how we want the hub to appear. Frankly, I can't believe some of the stuff I have changed my mind about. I can see how much I have improved from the time I started here as well. One by one I fully intend to revise them. Just a change in a subtitle may be all the refreshing needed for some of these hubs. I welcome the challenge.
It just takes time to write more hubs. It's taken me about 15 months for 120 hubs.
Some hubbers write every day, but I don't. Sometimes I'm lucky to write once every two weeks.
I wish you the best luck to write more. Joyce
I like the new feature. The system actually got it right with regard to which hubs needed to be put to sleep. One of my hubs was a holiday hub, which I have fully removed in order to change the title, tweak it- taking out the holiday references, and then re-publish it as a regular all-season hub. The other hub that was put to sleep was a serious hub with serious information, nevertheless, it was boring. I had to yawn just reading the title. So, I will be refining that one. All-in-all putting the sleepy hubs to rest has already made a difference in my overall traffic, which I see increasing. I'm happy with the change.
I am also very new to hub, just published two hubs. I used study the rules,reading other hubs and trying to improve my writing. Even then facing many technical problems. But I hope one day I will be able to publish a ever green hub.
Number of hubs will give more traffic, but I think develop a habit of writing healthy hub will be helpful.
Thanks shivanchirakkal, for your response. I agree with you, it's an ongoing learning process. I am sure one day you will achieve your goal. The good thing is, the community is very helpful and friendly here, so you get answers to all your problems.

In a forum I read recently someone commented that Google looks down on your subdomain if it contains many poor articles. But how do I tell which is considered poor?Can I tell by hubscore? Some of my hubs are in the 60s,...

Is it a good idea to unpublish a low performing hub?
by OSBERT JOEL C3 years ago
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?

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...

Just wanted to know, have you ever deleted any of your non-performing hubs?
by leakeem5 years ago
I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an...
