If you wrote a hub and it only received 19 hits in a week would you delete it?

    No, I wouldn't delete it.  What touches or inspires someone varies.  I've had hubs that got almost no traffic for several weeks and then suddenly took off.  Keep in mind too that it takes a little while for the google searches to log your hub.  You also might try moving it to another appropriate category or, reassess your tags or summary.  I've tried all kinds of tricks with success to get a hub moving, including minor re-writes.

    No, I wouldn't delete it. I have some hubs that after just being published, they didn't really get many hits until much later.
    Like Irc7815 said, hubs can take a while to be recognized by Google and to pop up in search results.
    Don't give up on your hub just yet smile Just continue to promote it and you'll get traffic visiting it in no time! smile

    No, instead of deleting a poor performing hub try tweaking it. Change the title, maybe add some content if you can, another paragraph or picture. Sometimes it may take several weeks and up to a month or more for changes to a hub to really take effect but usually a positive change will show slightly the same or next day.

    Many hubbers also do nothing to hubs with low traffic, and out of nowhere (2-3 months later or more) traffic will just shoot up. One of my hubs used to get maybe 4-5 views on a good week, I changed things around for weeks and saw very little change until finally it made it to 20-30 views daily on it's own, months later.

    I don't remember where I read it but it was here on hubpages from a respectable and successful author. They said it takes about a year for your hub to fully mature on the web.

    No I wouldn't delete the Hub the thing you always find is that Hubs need time and they will overtime with a little tweaking here and there increase in hits.

    No. Why delete it? It's not like you are renting the space for it. One more penny to your account is one more penny you can spend. Who knows. Someone may read it, share it, tweet it, like it and vote it up. This could potentially add up to massive views!

    No, I wouldn't delete it, as long as there is some interest whatsoever, it may become more popular later. I would make some adjustments to make it more interesting.

    No.  If one of my hubs got 19 hits in one week I would think that's a lot!! I wouldn't delete it.  You may need to revise and update it every few weeks and that may help.
