I have several Hubs pertaining to Chrismas. Should I unpublish them until next Christmas? Tell me what you think, OK?
No... leave them be. They will age and get you lots of traffic next year...beginning about July One of my Christmas hubs got over 30 views yesterday.
It depends on how much traffic they are generating. I have one Valentine's Day hub that gets steady traffic all year for some reason.
No. If you unpublish a seasonal hub, you lose the "aging" that gets you a higher ranking on Google. Also, seasonal hubs CAN and WILL get traffic any time of the year. My own Christmas hub got tons of traffic from Feb through November. Go figure.
Keep it active; amend it during the year as appropriate and then get ready for an increase in traffic as the holiday season starts!
I'm leaving mine. If their crafts some people start with craft stuff early.
Thanks for this question and for the answers. I often worry about seasonal or topical articles but have learned to leave them alone because they can get views year 'round.

How many of your hubs are de-listed and what are you doing about them?What proportion of your hubs are de-listed under the new policy. What do you intend doing with them? Are you leaving them alone, deleting them, amending them, or finding some other way such as linking, to try to increase traffic...
