Should I delete my zero traffic hubs?

    I get a feeling they put down my high traffic ones.
    I am confused about what to do next...

    Don't delete them. Leave them - unless, in your opinion you're embarrassed by the content (I deleted several hubs I created upon joining the site, when I didn't really "get it")

    They can't pull your other hubs down - Google sees all pages based on their single place on the net - it doesn't see scores or let your other pages quality or traffic influence that single page.

    Marisa Wright had a hub that did nothing for 15 months then made $200 in nine months - some hubs just take a bit more maturity to get traffic. In fact most hubs take 6-9 months to get decent traffic.

    The existance of low traffic hubs will be having no effect on the traffic levels of your high performing hubs. The two do not correlate in any way.

    Instead of deleting your zero traffic hubs, consider simply finding a new keyword phrase as your title. I have transformed a hub by adding just one word to the title before, such as 'Best', 'Cheap', 'Top 10', etc...

    I am thinking about deleting my 0 traffic hubs and upload them at Squidoo. Maybe, they would get some traffic there, as Squidoo is a much larger community than Hubpages. Though I do not have irrational expectations, over there they would probably get only a few hits too, but better then nothing. And I have lately been thinking about building up a Squidoo presence too, just to diversify, and not to depend on hubpages alone.

    You can try that if you would like, but in my opinion hubpages is the better bet. If you delete them here and post them on squidoo they might get a few internal hits but I do not think the performance on google will improve. Hubpages seems to be the best at getting views.
    Good luck with your decision.

    I would not delete old hubs, but I would consider re-editing them and re-checking what keywords could be used and added into the hubs to make them more relevant. They might not be as relevant as you originally thought and so need a new "coat of paint" so to speak. I do that every now and then, and it does bring up my stats slightly in some cases. Don't be afraid to experiment with your hubs, and utilise more videos and graphics too, as this helps. The first photo a person sees is also important, and can be all the difference too. If people are not searching for your topic, then modify it so that it gets included in searches. and Google's Keyword tools can help you hugely with this. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    I fight this compulsion  everyday and have asked the same question. I have kept myself from deleting many,but just could not stop my finger on a couple.

    They do need time to mature,if they are already old then perhaps you may try some different methods of gaining traffic or if you have not yet used linking to drive traffic  then learn about and implement these methods.

    Overhaul them completely to target new keywords or just make it look more inviting and a better overall read.

    I have deleted some that just seemed like to much work to revamp....but, if it all possible, I do try to revamp the ones that don't seem to do as well.

    I keep such hubs for some time and whenever possible I link them to my high traffic sites, if related. I also add some more keywords to contents so that they will be picked up by SEs.
