"Dead" Hubs...

    Currently, I have over 300 published hubs.  Some of them do quite well, but a lot of them get virtually zero traffic.

    Many of these are poems.  Others are random rants.

    Question is, for those that have "earned" the notorious "unfeatured for lack of traffic" button, would it help me to just delete those items?

      Ultimately, it is a personal choice, although it is good that you are putting it out here. I have some too and I plan to upgrade them with new photos, link problems, etc.

      If you have done all that and they are still in the background, then perhaps you may have other ideas for them. What's your thoughts?

        The poems, probably just delete and move to my personal journal; maybe desktop publish them one day.  The rants?  Maybe a blog?  But I already have 3 neglected blogs; I'm trying to focus here, as this is my only writing site that pays even peanuts.

          You the time wisely, if Hub Pages seem to be generating revenue, perhaps. Best wishes.

      Poetry, even on Letterpile, doesn't really earn.  Rants belong on a blog.  So maybe you want to get rid of those.  Try working on other articles that are not earning.  Add/change photos.  Add links.  Add material.  Re-arrange your capsules.

        Thanks for pointing this out. I`ve also thought of deleting those hubs that are "unfeatured for lack of traffic", but I don`t have quite as many hubs published as you do, so I`ve decided to wait `til I`ve published more hubs!

    Less is More

    Last year I had over a hundred articles. Then I deleted all those that were getting 0 views per month. I am now down to 41 published articles, most of which on are niche sites.

    The main advantage is that I can now concentrate on updating, revising and promoting existing articles when their views drop.

    As for the deleted articles, they may kept in a folder in the cloud like Google drive, DropBox or iCloud for (perhaps) future reworking.
