I have a couple of questions.
1. How do I delete a hub?
2. Is the traffic stats accurate as I really don't think they are?
1. When you look into your account and click on "edit" the hub, you have the option to unpublish. Once unpublished you can delete.
2. No, don't take it as gospel. Nothing ever is, but if you sign up for a Google Analytics account (free) you do gain a better measure.
Check out the help section of HubPages.
You can delete a hub by clicking on it in your statistics, then pressing delete at the top.
The hubpages statistics are good for guidelines, but you would be better off getting Google Analytics.
How do I set up google analytics for a hub though? And thanks both of you for your help. I will go and try to delete the hub now.
Glad you've made some progress.
I don't want to put anybody out of their hard efforts, so if you click on the following link it'll take you to the most pertinent portion of the HubPages FAQ. I assure you it can't be written any better than me, unless you're looking for weird references to obscure popular culture mixed in.
No problem. The tracking code (not the Java, should look like something like mine: UA-1694XXX7-1) is placed under "Affiliate Settings" on the "My Account" page.

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

My lenses were transferred to HubPages only about 30 hours ago. I am pretty disappointed with hubscores of my lenses (but not too surprised) and very happy with the traffic, which has been (in last 24 hours) on the same level as a full week on Squidoo.Google is still my best friend and it looks...

A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day astonishingly. Would that hub be defined as "going viral?" I know it's not...

It is very frustrating to go 36 hours without my account page updating. This has been going on for several weeks. Multiple users have posted about the problem and ye4t there is still no resolution. Is this the best we can expect from HP since the acquisition of Squidoo?
