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.
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.
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.

I am being challenged. I have been having a problem getting a new hub to be featured. It has gone through QAP three times already. It is a new day, and I am feeling up to the challenge once again. Rested and refreshed after a good nights sleep, with a hopeful heart. So! Now, the hub will be going...

Janderson posted something really important yesterday which I think everybody here needs to read http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/132621#post2759379.If he is correct in his assumptions (which it appears he might be), it is time for all of us to start making copies of all of our hubs (if we are...

Hopefully people know what I'm talking about. Hubs that wouldn't look out of place in a magazine. A mix of entertaining, educational, informational and not straying from the point.Have you written many?

This might be my last forum post because I am tired. I can't be wasting my time beating a dead horse.HP is a business and they need to start treating their business more seriously. They need a task force to sit and brain storm about how to keep spammers out in the first place.I know that I have...

What hubs have you written that don't rank and don't get any traffic?I'll share that most of my dog hubs get very little traffic.Neither does my hub about being addicted to Farmville.From your experience, what topics shouldn't we write about?

I'm not asking about why hubs get featured or un-featured. I kind of know that.The issue is: I just did a category search in my hubs, and found that, out of 292 published hubs, 149 are unfeatured due to low traffic! That's a lot! Over half my articles! I don't have the time...
