Should I keep my Hubpages account?

    Should I keep my Hubpages account?

    I've been going back and forth on whether or not to just delete my account. I don't have much time to write anymore. Plus I haven't really made much money from it. To all the  Long term hubers out there is it worth it to keep trucking on?

    I've just had a look at your profile page and I definitely want to read your hubs on how to draw things, so don't delete them just yet!  What's puzzling me is that it says you have 36 hubs but I can only find 9 on your profile page and clicking on the 'all' link has no effect! 

    I am surprised you haven't made much at all as your hubs seem quite useful, whereas I'll admit most of mine are not. I have been wondering the same thing as you, though, as my views have dropped to virtually zero since the last Google update at end of September, so I can't see any point in writing any more hubs. I would just get a few views from fellow hubbers, then nothing.  If 'useful' hubs don't get views either, what on earth does get views? 

    If you get some views, I would think there's no point in deleting your hubs unless you want to publish them elsewhere.

      Even if you want to publish them elsewhere, you have to change them. Google may still penalize you. I went through the same thing on eHow some years ago. I suggest you just leave your hubs up and create new ones for other projects.

    YES! Katherine by all means don't let all of the hard work and time that you've put into your hub page account go to waste. You can always come back when ever you want, no matter how long of a time period that may be. We all have been losing too many fellow hubbers lately, and you can stop on by my hub to see what I'm talking about - http://goody5.hubpages.com/hub/Google-vs-the-Hub-Pages Also Edit your profile settings and click on "YES" to "Show idle hubs on your profile". This is something new that the hub pages has added, and you will find it located at the bottom of your profile settings. Hang in there Katherine, and don't become just another statistic. Best of luck to you  smile

      I must admit I dip in and out of hubpages.  I find posting a hub every now and then like Escobana suggests works pretty well and the number of hubs gradually climbs.  Even if they only earn you a tiny amount, it's still worth leaving them published.

    I don't know if you could consider me a long term hubber but if time is the only issue, I'd say stick around some more.

    Even though you haven't made a fortune here (I didn't either) you must have had a lot of fun writing your Hubs.

    Post a hub once in a while, enjoy comments and the community you're in. Maybe that's all you need to stay. It's what I do here and I find it worthwhile:-)

    If nothing else, you can use the account to create backlinks to a website that you own or links to your other online projects.  A lot of people just create accounts for the sole purpose of building links to their blogs, Etsy stores, Squidoo pages, etc.  There's nothing wrong with that so long as the hubs are up to basic site standards (which aren't all that high, lol.) You can put as many links as you want in your hubs, up to two per domain.
