    I have a couple of seasonal posts (about the holidays), and I think perhaps I should unpublish them. If I do, how will it affect my overall Hub score? Also, will I be able to re-publish them for the holidays next year?

      Why unpublish? The next season will be round before you know it and your hub will have aged and so should do even better than it did this time.

      Leave them up. I've already started my 2011 Christmas shopping.

    Yes Izzy is right, by that time it will have climbed higher in search engines.

    Don't unpublish them! I'm always surprised by traffic to my holiday hubs at other times of the year. I always have folks reading Easter hubs in October, Christmas hubs in June, Halloween hubs in November, etc. Why?? I have no idea, but traffic is traffic!

    Yup I agree with other hubbers here.

    As a matter of fact, I just had readers viewing my Halloween hubs!! tongue

    Thanks for the advice to everyone who responded. I was afraid that leaving them on HP during the "off" seasons would lower their not-very-high scores and hurt my overall score. I'll leave them up. JAYE

    Yes, my seasonal hubs do get unseasonal pageviews and ad clicks. So keep them there and just collect the unseasonal money too.

    Why delete it when you can still earn adsense revenue over it? I say just keep it published. That's what I should've done last year, as I deleted my halloween hubs last year, when I should've kept them published.

    I got ten views about Christmas trees today smile

    The seasonal ones,  I leave them and let them sink slowly hoping they will revive next time around.

    I had two on my men wrapping Christmas presents up today - totally unseasonal now.

    Unless you have got 2010 dates in them, I would leave them.  Like good Christmas decorations, they should last a few years at least.

    You could potentially pick up a lot of backlinks in a year by others stumbling onto your hubs.  You're also likely to pick up some views too.  My Halloween hub usually gets at least a few views a day year round.
