Take down old Hubs that never really got a lot of traffic or rewrite them?
I haven't been on HP much the past few years and many of my older Hubs never seemed to get much traffic. I don't know if it's better to remove them (are their presence dragging everything else down in Google's algorithm maze?) or let them be or rewrite/tweak them. Any advice?
I like the idea of Remove and Rewrite if the subject and content are still in play. It is a mystery as to what sparks the interests of today's hp audience. Sometimes all it takes is getting a better headline.
Anyway good luck.
I suggest you rewrite them and pay special attention to search engine optimization and sharing them on social media accounts to get more attention.
Take them down only if you have another way of using them such as your own blog. It's better to get 10 page views a month from 10 Hubs than 0 page views for Hubs that sit on your computer. You never know when one of them may bounce back.
thanks. I probably didn't do enough SEO back in the day although it seems that anything related to Google is a moving target.
You might try using the Google Keyword Planner tool to identify search terms for your articles.
Rewriting them will do more for your hub score than taking them down, and it lets you retain that source of traffic, too.

If you view my hubs, you will see it has been a while since I've been active. I have been so busy with work I simply didn't have time to update anything. Now, I have a bunch not featured (only 7 out of 28 are featured).Only a couple show not featured 'do to quality', the rest are due to lack of...

I figured that linking a series of hubs together might be beneficial and publishing them with a time delay - as each new hub is added it relaunches the earlier hubs. In some ways a bit like movie sequels.My experience has been somewhat mixed. I produced a series called "The...

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you are doing. So I wonder, with some people pumping out huge amounts of hubs, are...
