    Should I remove Hubs that are sleeping (the Zs in the Stats)?

    Do sleeping Hubs affect my ratings and earnings potential?

    I'm not exactly sure how it affects ratings and earnings but maybe editing the info or adding pictures to refresh the article could be better so you wont loose your work.

    i believe this concern was addressed in the informational hub written by a moderator a few weeks back when the changes were  introduced.  The Zzzz's do not affect your ratings.....I'm not sure about earning potential. Check the learning center.  Answers to a million questions are there.
    To remove or not to remove, is your own individual decision.   If you like the hubs and put a lot of work into them,  you should keep them, IMO.  If you don't think they're worth keeping, let them go.  In 14 months, I have only deleted one hub and the reason was, it was terrible from day one....and as many times that I edited it, I still thought it I gave it the boot.

    I had one in that mode. I just added a video to update it. It has been fine now. It is nice to add a little more touches and updates to them.

    There's no need to remove them. Just update them by adding some content to each capsule, an image or two, (relevant to the topic of course) and a you-tube video of a song connected to the topic. That should wake them up! In short, don't let sleeping giants lie for long, lest they fail to rise. G-Luck 2U!
