    What to do with extremely poor Hubs?

    I have several Hubs, which I have edited many time to try and get them more traffic and to increase their scores, but with no avail. What should I do with them? Sell them? Or simply delete them from my HubPages account? (These make me no income and receive only 10 views a month.

    Re edit them again. Add more capsules like videos, photos, polls on your hubs. Then bring them outside HubPages. There are methods to boost traffic and views to our hubs. Do not just depend this site to market your hubs across the Internet. For details visit this link: http://paulpruel.hubpages.com/hub/Many- … y-February

    I don't actually regard any of my hubs as extremely poor, but some are not commercially viable I'm afraid. I try to improve the title and keywords as best I can. A few I have moved elsewhere. The only ones I have deleted altogether are hubs about hubs. If they are not idle, and still get 10 or more views a month, I would probably leave them.

    I would reedit the hubs again.  Change the title, keywords, and rewrite the introduction and summaries of your badly performing hubs.

    Re write them. Edit them. Gradually re-arrange content. Add more information. Alter keywords and allow for greater interaction by enabling polls and promoting more. It's probably best to think of rewriting them from a 'new' fresh start. If your only getting 10 views a month I would definitely add more content which will boost statistics otherwise just delete them and carry on.

    I would try to revamp them put a new spin on the topic or add new media.  If you are done trying to fix them and still have no success I would just delete them but I bet there is still hope smile

    Editing them will be the most important thing you do with extremely poor hubs. Edit them by changing titles, adding more capsules, adding pictures, and videos.

    I have found that improving the title of any hub can improve its search engine ranking as well as keeping your readers on your site by giving them lots to read and then giving them a way to leave your hub that will keep them moving forward in their search... what this means is that you should include some links to other hubs or websites that are very closely related to the subject matter of your hub. If you don't have any hubs of your own to link to then you should link to other hubs or websites. Google's search engines like that because your hub is then still seen to be providing valuable content to your readers.

    I read a suggestion the other day from a multi-millionaire (he has the accolade)--he said to add more photos to the hub, as long as they are original. He said one of his hubs went from 1500 pv/day up to 28,000 pv/day when he edited it and put in a lot of original pictures. I do not know which of yours you consider "poor", as I have a lot with low page views but I would not delete as they will help a few visitors out (sooner or later), but his tweak is worth a try if you can do it.

      I consider the Hubs which get less than 10 views per day poor, and I might try to add more photos to my hubs. smile

    Create a blogger blog, and put them there.  I often put things on blogger, and I also sometimes create original content there.  Every page with adsense is a potential money maker.

      Good point, although I do not like the idea of aving my content on multiple pages at once.

      Well you can't do that here.  What I mean is copy/paste it to blogger, then delete it here.
