What is your threshold for unpublishing or deleting hubs? I. E. Their score is below 70.
I'm due to go through mine. There is only really a couple that I will delete, the others I will try to build up to better scores/ views. But below 70 is probably a good shout. I'm more looking at views, taking into consideration seasonal hubs.
I never delete my hubs. I look at them as my "body of work".
Some are more popular than others but then again I'm not attempting to earn money on HP. Therefore I don't get too caught up on my scores.
I haven't deleted any yet, but probably would if it became unfeatured. I'd do some editing first and see if I could revive it first.
When I get time, I plan to go through and update my old hubs. There are a couple I am going to delete due to low interest in topic. I have some low scoring hubs that actually pull in more views than higher rated posts. Guess you have to look at that as well.

Some people say you should never, ever delete a hub...only edit it and such. What makes you just completely trash your own hubs?

I just published my 25th Hub a few days ago. For the past month or so, my traffic has been pretty low, and this is also reflected in my Adsense earnings. I've seen some other Hubbers saying that after deleting or at least unpublishing idle hubs that they noticed a surge in traffic - it's almost as...

Read here that when one hubber did this, traffic improved. I thought the formerly called 'sleeping' hubs, now those not 'featured', would be pulled off Google, anyways. So I'm curious that when someone unpublished their 'sleeping' hubs that this improved traffic. Has anyone else found that doing...

Could the HubPages team please explain why some of us are getting warnings about non-compliant Hubs, but others are having their Hubs unpublished with no warning?I saw this post on another thread today:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/74842#post1623078and it's not the first time I've seen Hubbers...
