I've isolated a handful of hubs that have had a low average time on page on GA. Is it a good idea to rid of them immediately, or track them over a few weeks to see if there are fluctuations?
I know there are different opinions on this, but before I would delete them, I would make sure all of your titles, headings and tags are descriptive as to what the content is about.
Have you checked your search queries to see how people are finding your page?
Does your content match the queries?
Can you add a relevant video that would possibly keep viewers on the pages longer?
Unless you feel the hubs are beyond help, I would give them a few tweaks and wait and see. Search results are so unpredictable right now, it's hard to tell.
Thanks rebekah, its so hard these days to know what is the best thing to do, but I will try and do some further tweaking first.
I think that one of the problems with low traffic, is what G does send can be from some pretty random key word strings for that particular article, so it proves not to be what the reader was looking for and they bounce out pretty quickly

It's an often asked question "Where did my hub go?", "Why doesn't Google love me anymore?" after celebrating a first page result.Source

If the score on a hub that was published yesterday is now 44 should I give up on that hub or try and fix it? 44 is very low and I think it may just not be a good topic?

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were...
