Should seasonal hubs be unpublished when the seasonal ends?
If I have a featured hub that is what I would call seasonal ( this one happens to be Superbowl focused), should I unpublish after the Superbowl is over and republish it next season? The reason I ask is, I see that it looks like hubs can get automatically unpublished for lack for traffic. It is a fairly safe bet that traffic will fall off significantly next week after the big game is over. I also have no clue what a hubs "score" means, but ti somehow has to do with that number they print across the picture of the author.
I don't think they should. I love reading seasonal stories all year long. Especially if they are on crafts or party planning. For example, I don't have time to think about Christmas crafts only during the Christmas season. I start working on Christmas crafts in the summer time.
nope, i leave all my halloween, st patricks day and christmas hubs on even though the festival are over. Just leave it, you may see some traffic
Seasonal topics can also be evergreen, meaning it can pull in some traffic all year, and then come next season it can begin generating more traffic again without having to post it again.
The loner it's posted, the more maturity it gains with search engines, chance of other people linking back, and so on. When a hub or article is removed and re-posted, it loses all that.

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 So I'm curious that when someone unpublished their 'sleeping' hubs that this improved traffic.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...

Do you think it is better to unpublish seasonal Hubs? They won't get traffic during the year, so I'm wondering if it would be better to unpublish those until the next season. I am thinking about Christmas Hubs I have written.

I have a quick question. If I unpublish a hub, does Google "see" that it's still sitting in my account and thus punish me for it, or should I be totally deleting hubs that I decide are not garnering enough traffic? Some of them I'd like to keep around until I get the time to...

Have you ever chosen to delete any of your hubs?If so, why? Did it have the affect that you were looking for?

I thought I knew the answer to this question. But something interesting happened in the last week which I found it hard to explain. I'd be interested to hear opinions.I have a hub which is nine months old and had just reached 250-300 hits per day.I was experimenting to see how many tags I could use...
