Do you delete a hub which is outdated?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 am not quite sure !! right now i just leave it as it is ....
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will suggest that you leave your Hub as it is (for link juice) but you may wish to put down a note that the content is outdated but you still welcome your readers to check out what they have missed.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.
Suppose the hub score is going down because of outdated content and less views, would it affect your overall score and eventually traffic to your other hubs?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.
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.

I will give it a few days but I am thinking there should be a hub score level that tells us we need to do something with our hub. Most of my hubs are 60 -80. I would like to score higher but that should happen when...

Yesterday I spent some time deleting some of my Hubs that were performing badly is this a good idea as my Hub score seems to have taken a big hit.

What have I done wrong, this has not happened before, the score of my new hub is going down, despite having received traffic. I hope I am not being immodest but I believe it is at least as good as other hubs I have written and I have put a lot of work into it - please can someone throw some...
