Redoing my hub pages

    If I want to delete all my hubs and restart, does it delete the scores I've gained so far?

    The reason I'm asking is it took me a while to understand how the search engines were ranking and what kind of titles worked.

    Now I understand that, and I just want to delete them and restart.

    To my mind, the point of being here is to earn money. If the title isn't doing the job because I haven't got a good title, then all the work put in is wasted.

    Many thanks.

      Why not just edit them?

      If the title is not good then you can change the title by editing the hub. If you want to change the URL then you can create a new hub, copy the old content in there and start editing. It's probably easier to salvage the work you have done rather than starting again from scratch.

        Can't salvage the URL. And that seems to be vital. Doesn't take that long to redo. But one does lose all the visits and comments, which is sad. smile

        Still, it's the search engines that need to find it!

      Time is a great thing for hubs, so deleting and starting again would be like pulling an established plant out of the soil and replacing it with a seed.  It doesnt make sense to do this.  If you edit, optimize your pages, you will find that this will be far the best measure.

      You could just leave them the way they are and just start new hubs around the same subjects but just vary the content.

    Hi Sophia.

    It's not obvious but you can just change the title - just click on it to edit.

    I've done it with all of mine.

    Who cares what the URL is?  No one's going to type it in anyway?

    Please correct me if I am wrong anybody.

    Sophia, I suggest you do not delete all your hubs, just edit them. I go back and edit my hubs from time to time to improve their scores. Sometimes I update them to add new information or remove  outdated information. The point is you have 32 hubs already, keep going. I believe if you were to delete all your hubs at once your hubber score will take a big hit if there is nothing to read. I agree with Mark it does not matter what your URL is, it is the title that shows up in the search.

      Guys, I know how to read HTML so I've been looking at the source pages, and if one has a screwy title, it can pretty much make sure that it takes forever to get a reasonable placing on the search engines.

      So, what I've done is half and half.

      The ones where it's absolutely vital to redo the hub, I will redo. Probably two or three.

      I've just redone Gap Year for Americans. The URL previously was Gap Year Best Choices.

      But I wanted it to be for Americans as Americans don't take gap years and it's a movement I would like to see grow.

      So, I redid it with the URL reading Gap Year for Americans.

      There is one that is absolutely vital. Another one is probably important but I put so much work into it, I think I'll just leave it and create other hubs around it.

      Altering the titles doesn't change the URL.

      The thing with SEO is that it's a whole lot of things that give it a strong ranking.

      a) URL
      b) topic
      3) key words and phrases and stringing
      4) backlinks
      5) how long it's being on the net.
      6) frequency that it is read by others.

      Right now I'm working with SEO. I'm doing the best with what I've got.

      Then, after that, I'll go and learn how to add the products and monetize them.

      I just have the one more article I want to rewrite so that I can get a better URL and after that, I'll check a few more key words, and then I'm done!

      Then, I have to learn how to monetize.

      Thanks for your input. Much appreciated. smile

    Now I'm worried.  I have just changed virtually all my titles to hopefully make them better.  But it never occurred to me to delete and recreate with a new URL.

      Mark, don't worry. I just changed a few. I did that because I think that there's potential for more traffic if I do.

      Other hubs like my short stories will never generate much traffic so I haven't bothered.

      Also, I'm probably a perfectionist and take all possibilities into account. I may be totally worried. Please don't follow my example. I'm just asking questions in order to make the best decisions for me. smile
