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 Once unpublished you can delete.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.
