    Do you delete a hub which is outdated?

    For example, if you had written a blog in past on a feature of an old model of a phone which is no longer in market and the views of that blog are going down, would you delete it?

    I will suggest that you leave your Hub as it is (for link juice) but you may wish to put down a note that the content is outdated but you still welcome your readers to check out what they have missed. But if the guys over at HubPages think otherwise... you may have to make the necessary changes.

      Thanks affilicore,
      Suppose the hub score is going down because of outdated content and less views, would it affect your overall score and eventually traffic to your other hubs? I am not very sure how these score things work though!

      Personally I feel... If the view numbers are insignificant, your other hubs are not linking to it to enjoy the extra views and you are unable to update the content... then it may be best to delete it.

    I would rather bring an old hub up to date than to delete.

      Agree 100% to this. It took some time to piece together. So why delete? Much better to get it up to date.

    Why delete your own hub which brought traffic. It will be better ideal to keep updating on linking your new hubs on the same topic so that visitors can dig into the past while sticking to the present.
