I enjoyed my first experience with HUBPAGES and, so, I wrote several HUBs a week. That's the problem. Some HUBs are angry old guy rants and others are light weight fun stuff. I want to split them up and there appears to be no good way. I can open a second account, but if I do I still can't move the best material of either type.
I'm stymied. Can I do this?
Step one: Completely close out my current account and effectively eliminate everything that I have now. If I do that is it truly gone from the HUBPAGES and from the internet?
Step two: Make two completely new accounts and place the best of my current HUBs on one or the other?
In other words, if I completely close my HUB account, can I open new ones and re-use the best HUBs that way?
You will have to open at least one new account, unpublish hubs to be moved there and wait for google to de-index them. Maybe a week or so.
At that point you can copy them into the new account. If they are still available through a search for the URL HP will figure they are duplicates and unpublish them, which is why you wait a while before re-publishing them in a new account.
It's all a major PIA, but it can be done.
Thanks Wilderness, So,let me repeat so I know I understand:
First, I un-publish everything I have now and email HP asking them to remove my old acct per their own instructions to close an acct.
Next, I start completely new HP accts, new name, new email address, etc - and put completely new HUBs too, but none of the old stuff yet?
Several weeks later (just to be safe) I can add back good stuff I don't want to completely lose.
Is that it?
Unless I misunderstand, I will assume I won't hear more about this, but I do want to do this in a way that is legal and honest about it per HP protocol. I just want a fresh start without completely losing that part that was good.
Is there a chance someone who actually works for HPs can concur?
Thanks - - JACK

HP has always said do evergreen hubs. Politics is certainly not evergreen. it has a short "shelf-life" if it is about a current event. And since I would mostly write about U.S. politics, they might have...

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more...

For the second time in less than a week, I just spent time opening "questions" that aren't questions, but nonsensical "garbage"--bits of a paragraph copies from somewhere and dumped into HP. In each...
