I just decided to 'abandon' one particular hub. It was nothing special, just a random scribbling from another perspective.
It sat there quietly doing..... well, quite frankly, not a lot.
Then came the Hubpages quality overhaul - and it took a hammering. I did try to amend it. I removed the (one) affiliate link, I removed ALL the ebay and Amazon capsules. I went through all the comments deleting any that linked elsewhere, even if they were marked as spam.
It was as clean as a whistle.... but I couldn't get it republished because, quite frankly, it didn't pass muster
So, bye bye my substandard hub - for I never loved you anyway....
But I did run a quick Google report and it did quietly make me $50 over the four years it was published - which probably isn't a bad return on the 30 minutes that one took me to produce.
So bye bye .... but I still banked some cash.
A sad story-- though you have seen the brighter side-- but can't you add more 'quality' and revive it?
nice to see a pragmatic approach on the forums- self confessed not good enough- wish i could be as brave as you
