I'm trying to decide when to put a particular hub or two out of their (and my) misery. I need a few good suggestions as to what the cutoff point should be. I'm thinking a score of 60 or below means the death penalty. I don't what a bunch of decrepid hubs hanging around just to be able to say I've got so much in volume.
LOL I'm not a hubber yet. But I'm for the killing
I would say either re-write, edit or re-shape the Hubs on the topics. I disagree with killing or deletion of hubs. Not everyone is always interested in the same topics, but there are plenty of people who will be looking for something on the topic and if you at least covered it pretty good, then you get views and possibly clicks.
Plus, remember, you do not only get paid for clicks, but also views(at a low fee, but still adds up).
So, I would change whatever hub it is about or work on keywords + SEO, to make the hub better.
Just my thoughts.
I have almost no Hubs with scores in the 60s anymore, due to going back and fixing them.
Deleting a Hub loses any backlinks or status with the search engines. And search engines love when you go back, add content and make something better.
That's just my $0.02...
I sometimes do kill off Hubs, especially if they're old or irrelevant. The most mass deletion occurred when I put my unFiction thing on the back burner for awhile.
The only suggestion I have is to save all your work as an HTML file and back it up for future use--you just never know when it may come in handy again!
But I agree with relache--spicing up a Hub and changing the tone and content is a great idea, too. This is a world of zero archive and revisionist history, after all.
I agree with the mass opinion here... edit rather than delete. I need to go over several of my earlier hubs and try to get them up to par.
I do have a few that I've written for pure personal fulfillment, and those, I don't worry about where the score is. They just hang on at the bottom of my list and make me smile.
Ixxy - "Revisionist History", eh? Interesting... I think this phrase may sum up all my fears about the fact that people seem to do 90% of their research on Wikipedia.
Excellent advice form excellent sources. I'll delete them
I agree with the majority, edit,edit, and edit again, rather than delete always.
But, I would like to add in one more tidbit. If they are seasonal hubs like many of mine, just, "ignore them until the season comes back around." I.e. not many people are searching for "Christmas gifts" right now.

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

I looked at my hub scores today and cried. They have been falling steadily for two weeks from 70's & 80's to 60's and 70's with one 59. Today, one of my hubs has fallen to a 50. HP is sending me mixed signals. I am told to write in a niche that I am passionate about with...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of priority about what to do next.Up until now I've been focused on the traffic data and...

I have been on Hubpages for almost 3 years now! I have never experienced such a low HubberScore of 43-45, it has always been 70+, even in my worst days. What's even worse for my current situation, it is that this dreadful experience does not seem to have an end, it has been like this for almost 2...
