Are they good pages? Significant in their niche, with unique content that can't be found somewhere else? Are they authoritative on their topic?
Not authoritative, but helpful... They are something like a very scaled down wikipedia pages - although they predate wikipedia (and wikipedia and ehow often cite them as references).
You seem pretty attached to them, but if they're not converting to sales - why?
They do attract links and they get shared by facebook users... but primarily I guess I am just holding on to the myth that they will help drive sales :(
