Unpublished hubs - what has been your experience?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.

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....

I've been a HP member for five years now and have seen steady, but modestly increasing traffic and earnings until recently. My earnings are now close to what I was seeing three or four years ago. I thought maybe it was...
