Low scoring hubs usually is accompanied by low traffic. Maybe they are just badly written, no keywords or SEO,uninteresting, etc.
What do you do with Hubs - Edit them, or Eliminate and rewrite
I'd give them all 12 months Peter before deciding to delete them, some hubs take longer to mature than others. You can add content, pictures or change the title if you wish, but make sure your keywords remain.
After a year if they are still poorly performing despite your efforts make a decision on what to do with them. That said, I have deleted a few of mine recently, but I knew they were poor hubs and wouldn't add anything to my portfolio.
I try to review anything that has low traffic on a regular basis. Maybe change the title, add content, freshen up.
Doesn't work but it stops me chewing my nails.
I do the same. Stops me from murdering the parrot.
Seriously Peter I would not delete anything for a while. I am getting income since the panda from what were dead hubs while my leading hubs have been getting belted, so it looks like a choock raffle to me at the moment.
I am still pulling very good add clicks from all sorts of old hubs, just not the same ones as before. Over all down at the moment though.
Great advise !! I better start doing the same.
Can I just point out that when the said tosser has been removed it will appear you have reported my profile. This could lead to an element of confusion, although it might increase my traffic briefly.
Holy bats droppings! I forgot about that..... well let me make it clear here that I was referring to a poster who has been removed. Soon.
Well one good thing, we can now see who the tossers are!
Well I'm in. No publicity is bad publicity.
I thought that the first tosser was the spammer, the second tosser was me for replying to a thread that was gonna go poof!
but you can share in the glory if you like!
Lol, well he's gone now. So this is officially the tossers thread.
I love it when they go "poof" like that! Hubpage black magic.
Can I get a clue as to what you guys are discussing? What is a Tosser and how did it crop up here?
always trying to learn.
When I was new I used to delete anything under a 50, thinking it would drag the other stuff down. But then I realised three things:
1] Each hub stands (or not) in its own right, so one with a low score (which might be genius, but has low traffic) won't make a difference.
2] It might have its day when it matures and, come 2 years' time, could prove to be my best hub ever (unlikely, but fingers crossed)
3] It actually requires effort - and minimising effort is something that's close to my heart.
So now I just leave 'em. Write 'em and leave 'em.
But I'd rather be more proactive in editing.
Do we have a forum here where people will review hubs and suggest edits?
I now believe that the more hubs you have , the better, in sofar as they're not spam.
The web and search engine algo's are a moving target and a constant refrain is the need to experiment, and for me this is best done with fresh webpages and re visiting and adjusting old articles
I have very little traffic so it ain't working terribly well for me right now
Yet hope remains
Rewrite them if possible. Try not to lose hubs, whenever possible.

is it better to just delete low scoring hubs
by peacefulparadox 8 years ago
It is advantageous to delete one's own low scoring hubs that have little traffic. I figure getting rid of the low score would increase the average of the rest of one's hubs.What do you think?

Most of my hubs are getting no traffic at all, some of such hubs are basically dead - they are not even indexed by search engines.I tried to fix one of them (the blue topaz), by reducing number of products the least. Later I see it was picked up by google, but with no traffic at all.Another hub...

Over 1/4 of my hubs have not been moved to a niche site. They do not have much traffic from Google, so it is not HPs fault that they have not been selected. There is nothing wrong with them, but they do not have "Google love" so are only moved in the slow process where I ask HP to move...

Some people say you should never, ever delete a hub...only edit it and such. What makes you just completely trash your own hubs?
by Faith Reaper 4 years ago
I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...
