If I have several hubs with zero visits in 30 days, should I delete them.

    If I have several hubs with zero visits in 30 days, should I delete them.

    They are random hubs, not in a niche, and I honestly don't have anything else to say on the subject. Are they bringing me down, just sitting there?

    I would give them more time. Sometimes it takes a while for hubs to take off. Plus, why delete all of your hard work? Good Luck!

    I wouldn't, but it's your hard work and time that went into creating your hubs, therefore it's solely your decision.

      Thanks for the feedback. I was really just wondering if they were somehow hurting my standings with google??hubpages?? I just don't know how that stuff works. They are really not hubs that I would expand on, so  wondered if they are serving a purpose

    I wouldn't delete them.  Eventually HPs will make them idle.  I have 3 hubs like this, 2 essentially memorial type hubs and one a niche.  I will probably try to update the one and don't mind if the other 2 are idle.  I'm not absolutely sure, but I don't really see where the idle hubs are hurting me.  After recovering from the last Google update, my views are now going up higher than ever.
    Let the hubs ride.  While you may not have anything to add to them now, who knows, you may have something constructive to add in the future.

    Don't delete them -update them with some additional content or tweek the content and re-publish.  You may also do some social bookmarking for those older hubs that should get new traffic back to them.

    Make a short video about your articles youtube and place links back to the article . Youtube will always get views if you are active on your channel and in turn boost the views for the hub articles you have .

      Thank you for the suggestion. I've never used youtube (look at it a lot though) , but maybe it's time to think about it!

    I agree with not deleting them.  I have a few hubs that have slow traffic and when I graph out the visits, they appear to come in bunches during a short period of time and then they "hybernate" to later have more clumps of visits.  Patience.

    I took a look at your hubs and I've noticed one thing that jumps out:

    You have many articles on clothing, kids and pets.  What I don't see are hubs that may stir some "controversy."  In other words, a little stirring of the pot on these subjects would be attention getting.  Examples (in order): Clothing that makes kids feel fashionable or adults feel desirable, troublesome teenage boys and parental discipline and when is it approprate to euthanize pets.  Even furher, how does current events affect your decisions and perspective on these three core subjects you have chosen?

    I've only deleted individual hubs to take the whole of my hubs into a different direction.  In fact, after nearly two years on hub pages, I'm still developing the kinds of hubs I wish to publish.  Step out of your comfort zone, publish and decide only after 12 months as to whether you feel any success.  Another point is, keep writing even if you hit the delete button before you publish.

      Thanks so much for your thoughtful answer. I really appreciate you taking the time to look at my hubs and give specific suggestions. A really great answer and a big help!

    It would be much better if we could update and improve it rather than we delete it.
