Unpublished hubs - what has been your experience?
Yesterday I took control and ownership of my hubs and un-published the ones that were marked as substandard. Today I continued to work on my hubs and what a major surprise, my earnings jumped! I didn't do this for the earnings but for the traffic. Traffic and earnings apparently go together. Praise God.
I plan on continuing to update the hubs and follow the HP guidelines. What are your experiences?
I'm glad this approach is working for you. I have done similar things with mine in the past and I have many I should update or get rid of now. Although it really did not do much for my traffic. Apparently I still need to figure this part out as to ever earning much of anything on this site. I mainly write here for the practice and exposure, which any is better than none. It would be nice to get paid for it. I'm happy for anyone who does. Good luck.

Has anyone else seen a steep drop in traffic and earnings all of a sudden? This is so strange. Actually started Thursday.

I don't follow HubPages much anymore, I check my earnings a couple times a month maybe. I am nearing the million view mark, but seems as I look back on earnings over the last 2-3 year that traffic has declined considerably. (I've read the forum rules, and it doesn't say anything about discussing...

This info is for semi-newbies. You old pros don't need this advice - you already know it!I've been going through my older hubs and revamping them with what I've learned about keywords, length, and titles. Evidently it's working! I'm getting more hits and more clicks. For example, one hub I'd...
