I'm still trying to figure out this idled hub thing. I use to think that hubs went idle with low to no views. But just yesterday one of my best hubs that still gets lots of views and comments became idle. So at this point I'm really not sure what's going on anymore here at the hub pages.
I really hate this idle thing. A lot of my work is poetry and I don't want to tweak it to get it out of "idle" mode. I do understand Hubpages has to think about revenue I am not here for the money anyway. A mystery!
I'm just here for fun as well like a lot of other people. How about adding a paragraph of introduction to your poems, where you can add words down the road to get your hubs out of the idle status. Just a thought.
This is a good question, duffsmom. I recently had a poem hubscore drop drastically and didn't know why. Maybe low or no views? This is the same hub that was idled a few weeks ago but revived by editing in a day. I remember hearing something about a time period of 6 months of low/no activity as criteria for idling a hub. I don't know, it's not clear. All we can do is speculate. In the meantime, tweak, edit, switch out images, add a video, etc., etc., etc. By the way, I did revive that hub for a second time and it's fine for now.

One of my best performing hubs is marked as idle. It has had 31 views just this week - better than many of my other hubs that are not idle. I believe this is a mistake.Here is the hub: <link snipped>

How are idle hubs evaluated as idle?I received a Zzz notice on one of my hubs today and, looking at the stats of all my hubs, it had been performing slightly better that some of my un-Zzz’dhubs (still not good, but...
