Is there any advantage to having a large number of Hubs?
I was thinking of deleting a few as they're not getting any more views, but I have a personal goal to reach 100 hubs, just for my own personal sake. Is there any advantage to having a massive amount of hubs?
To your point, I guess if you have a massive amount of hubs, but they aren't getting any views, what would be the point...I am close to reaching 100 hubs, but as I've gotten better at writing I've gone back through and probably rewritten a few and also deleted a few that I just didn't think could be saved by rewriting.
Try to rewrite some of them and see if you get any view. If you do rewrite the rest of it, if you are not getting any view after rewrite them just delete them. I dont see any point keeping them if you are not getting any views.
The only real benefit is that the more articles you have on your account, the higher your aggregate earnings each month. I have 120 or so hubs right now, and my monthly earnings are about 10 times the amount I was making when I only had 12 or so. It does feel kind of nice to reach a milestone number like 50 or 100, but I don't think I'm going to invest more time in this site to make it to the next milestone. Google/Yahoo/Bing search does not seem to like Hubpages very much and my views are also down, as are everyone else's.
After glancing at a few of your hubs I did notice a few things you could change to get more traffic.
1) You could place your hubs into groups using the "Groups" feature in your account settings. All this does is give your two extra links to your other hubs at the bottom of the page (with a little thumbnail). They appear as "Next" and "Previous". You can look at my hubs to see what I'm describing.
2) Some of your titles are clever, but not very descriptive. Unfortunately, search engines place a lot of weight on a webpage's title, and creativity isn't rewarded. You might want to make some of your article titles more transparent, or throw in a keyword. If you want to keep your clever titles, add a subtitle with a colon or a dash.
Good luck and have a nice Christmas!
Thank you for your suggestions! I"ve grouped as many as I can, though I find some of them just don't have a group, and could only go into the group perhaps of Oddkins. I will test out my titles as well, and see if that makes a difference
I am new to Hubpages and appreciate this information. Thank you! You said that the search engines don't seem to like Hubpages, so I wondered how else it is that people find our Hubs?
Mostly, rewriting hubs helps you to give them a different look. Why do you dislike them?

I never thought I would ask that but having just looked at the large number of hubs now classified as Idle in my account why should I write any more, and what am I do with all of those already here? A lot of them are good quality writings I know because they had previously been published in hard...

Okay it is not really an issue.It is more like a dilemma.Well not really, it more like an ill-thought-of or foolish desire if anything else.But, okay I really cannot explain what it is.It's just that for the longest time now, I have wanted to make the Number of Hubs I have written be the same...

Just now, I checked out Trish1048's hubtivity, and found that she'd reached a milestone of 91 Hubs being viewed 10,000 times. Actually, her Hubscore is 91, and she's written 41 Hubs. As for the 10,000 views, well I have no way of knowing. Hope this is helpful info for fixing some...

I've recently read some discussions about getting search traffic for hubs. Something that new authors might not know is that something Google considers is the number of hubs that you have published on your subdomain when ranking you for search, in particular:- The overall number of hubs on your...

Is there a maximum number of hubs one can post in one account? I know with blogger you are only allowed to post upto 100 blogs per account. Is that the same with hubpages. I read the hub terms but i couldn't figure out if there was any reference to this.

I'm just curious to know how other people have done. Right now, my record is a very prestigious 2! I'm sure I'll do better in the future though (I hope!).
