Should you delete hubs with poor scores?

    I was just wondering weather low scores on hubs (40-50) affect your overall hubscore? And if so, would it be wise to remove hubs with a low score?

    I have 2 hubs with scores in that range, and they get no traffic at all. Would it worth deleting them?

    I'm going to look into updating/improving them first, but if that's not possible then I might delete them.

    Any advice would be very grateful, Andre

    1.)  See about adding useful content to said low-scoring hubs.

    2.) Try reorganizing the information on your hubs to a more logical pattern if need be.

    3.)  Promote your hubs.  There are lots of ways to do this, and many of them are written about by other Hubbers. smile

    4.)  Use the tag suggestion tool (but not too much!)

    Those are my easy and fast tips. tongue

    Deleting isn't the answer. You should revitalize the hub with new content, revise the content that is there, or\and get more pictures and a "lure" to your hub ^_^. Remember, deleting a Hub is almost like deleting am art piece that took you time to make (hopefully).

    Also, remember some hubs will ALWAYS score lower because of the general interest. If you have something that people don't search or want to read or look at, then they won't neutral. Hubs like that are for the people who really want to see them, and very good to create fans that like the same thing or get more traffic on other hubs of yours that aren't that subject.

    @ Gamer girl - Thanks, I'm planning on doing this when I get a bit of time for it.

    @ Thranax - Deleting would be my last option, I'm not the kind of person who will just give up on something, and I totally agree with you on the art part, blood sweat and tears goes into art (at our studio anyway!) and it pains me to see art getting deleted or destroyed.

    @ Maddie - I searched for another thread, must have just missed it!

    Thanks for the tips guys, got to love the hub community, all so very helpful!
