I have a hub which has gained 31 Facebook likes, a couple of tweets and 68 useful/funny/awesome/beautiful/interesting ratings.
My questions is, how safe is it to overhaul the hub? I actually don't like the way it was written and feel the content should be totally rewritten and the layout of the hub also significantly changed.
This was one of my first hubs and while it is the most popular, I like it the least.
If I change the content but keep the focused keywords in place, ie the frequency of keywords in paragraphs/headings etc, how likely am I to screw it up and nuke my high rankings in search engines?
The hub currently gets just under a 1000 views a month and I have never tried to promote it anywhere, it's all natural traffic. Earlier in the year the hub was getting about 150 views a day so I would like to get back to that benchmark if I can.

I wanted to add more heading tags to break up the text, include more illustrative photos and rewrite the instructions so they are clearer, possibly reducing the amount of text overall.
Any advice would be warmly welcome.
Well, rather than do a rewrite for a article doing good on it's own, why not do a spin-off article related to it that may provide indepth analysis of the tips and advice or something like that ?
Hi Daniel Roo,
Have you considered making a hard copy of the original Hub first, then messing around with it to achieve more clarity? Heading tags can also be helpful...formatting of the piece can certainly improve readability.
It seems to me that your feelings about the work are the most important. You are obviously dissatisfied and that is bound to be sensed by your audience.
I also agree with Dame Scribe that a follow-up Hub could work, thus bringing up further points on the subject.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
I would be inclined to follow the advice given by DameScribe and make a follow up hub. The only change I would then make to the original hub would be to link to the second, follow up hub.

It seems the News Capsule is now out of favour.That's a bummer, because over the last couple of years, it's been recommended as a great thing to add your Hubs to keep the content "fresh".As a result, I (and...

My most recent hub was Snipped and given a new short title by staff which does not properly reflect the contents of the hub. Views have been negatively impacted and have not picked up after the change. ...

Does anyone have any definitive information on this as the SEO advice is rather mixed.Some say that googlebot looks for keywords in the first sentence. It also relates to the text displayed on the SERP. Of course there...

I have two hubs up so far. I am not entirely sure what a great ranking would be considering that they are quite new, but they are both above 60. Is this pretty good for newly established hubs? I would appreciate any...

This is long, so here's the bottom line: Basically, my problem is I want to build a site around the same topics and keywords I've done well with here on HP, but I don't want to do anything that would damage the work...
