Do you notice that once you fix one sleeping hub more tend to crop up?
It seems every time I get around to updating a hub so it can be active and taken off the sleeping status, two or more hubs miraculously have fallen asleep. Is HP trying to keep me more active? Or is it just a coincidence? Very freaky nevertheless. What would account for this phenomenon?
Hard to say, but my older Hubs were dozing away and came back to life with revision. I still have some sleepy ones though.
Yes I have, but as you take them out of the idled hub status it's gets more under control. They still pop up from time to time down the road, but it's not as frequent. It's just something that we are all going to have to live with for now. Keep on hubbing
I only have 12 hubs and none of them are sleeping for some reason my hubs always seem to get at least a "trickle" of traffic.
It's coincidence. You probably just lost a lot of traffic over the last few months so a lot of your hubs are going into idle. Make a minor edit to each one of them and they will spring back to life again.
I find that they are helpful things, those sleeper symbols. I've been revising older articles and retweeting and marketing them while waiting for them to be indexed again.
Writers can expect to go through older articles for two main reasons, one being to update the information and the other to improve the article.
Most of my cooking articles are complete and will last a while. Others came from my news writing and the information is not of lasting interest. I will delete some of those.
I just saw one on my account today that is asleep. I am going to have to go in and tweek it. The good thing is that when I go back to look at these articles, I can understand where they do need some help. The seasonal posts, like holiday hubs, will tend to lose hits until the circle is complete through the year.

Do you include a copyright notice in your articles? Why or why not?I never do this, but I see that a lot of folks on here do. Just wondering what the opinions are out there.

Over 1/4 of my hubs have not been moved to a niche site. They do not have much traffic from Google, so it is not HPs fault that they have not been selected. There is nothing wrong with them, but they do not have...
