Always update your hubs...

    Always be on the look out for new links and content that can be added to your hubs as the more good and quality content you add, then the more traffic you could generate for yourself as an authority on whatever you hub about!

    I'm going through all of my old hubs and updating them all because I started out as a spammer and this is not the way to go guys and gals!!

    Keep the faith and write write write!!!!!

      Good point,
      I started out as a spammer too or at least so it seam.. and my first hub I re edited several times to the point where it is my own content 99.99% BUT the red warning still stands and says it is highly commercialized and the one link I have leads to my very own website which has my very own F-cking name on it nicholasmancini.ws What more do they want?
      What is wrong with these people? Is it something that I do not understand?
      Do they want me here? I begin to wonder...
      I comment on other people hubs, I am quite active here in the Hubadubadoo LOL..community, what else is missing? Help me out here Please.

      Does the staff here actually reads the Hubs? or just ...

      Have a Supper Tuesday and vote for my friend Obama.
      Thank you!

    I learned my lesson on another site where I posted lots of links and got thrown off in 24 hours without warning and with no chance of mending my ways.
    Just kicked me out of town!!!!
    At least you've got a second chance and I suppose hubpages gave me a second chance although they don't know it and I know now what the boundaries are (roughly)

      Yeah, They gave you as second chance as if the Place make the participants or the participants make the place.. which one is it? I am all confused now LOL.

      I must admit though their HUB system is great. It does make you come back here and participate.  Watch out for some KILLER HUBS coming your way from yours truly;-)

    I have to say, if you write them well in the first place, with appropriate links and information, the only time you really need to do this is if they are failing in some way.

    I periodically look at my failures and look for ways to improve them, but find my time better spent making new hubs, using lessons I have learned from the failures. smile

      I know messin with perfection can upset the balance but I just can't help but add more to old hubs just sitting there gathering dust!!

    LOL - Some are just meant to die a slow death. My first hub, a recipe for making an omelette sat for 6 months with almost no traffic - then, the other day, someone found it and submitted it to a social network site and it got several thousand visits in a few days. So, I am glad I left it alone. smile

      Agreed.  My hub on Christmas alone won't get anymore hits until Christmas this year when people are doing searches for the keyword "Christmas", so I may even delete it.

    Updating Hubs is an important asset here , well they must be done in the first place and then  talk about updating lol , as for me , the same goes as for mark some hubs I have published in my few first days on Hubpages Get thousand of visits now , and are some of my hottest hubs but some are a real failure , I dont consider writing on a specific TOPIC is important on Hubpages , as "How you write it" matters the most. I have posted on an other forum my opinion on "What to write on Hubpages??" ... well some people get thousands of visits on some hubs that are really not interesting that much ... that`s a weird thing yikes)  Keep on publishing hubs , size does matter as you see success comes in a whole lot of months here wink

    I'm just starting out here, but I'll definitely take this into consideration - I think I'd focus more on just creating new content rather than going back and updating all my stuff.  But when I have more, maybe.  What I'm gathering is that I am really going to need patience to become successful on here.  Definitely harder than it sounds...

    Hubpages team even talks about revenues and say that they don`t promise high incomes here - but there are some revenue shares thou , talking about hard work ? I am doing this for fun to .. I think on average it takes up to 6 months to make an extra pocket money here , can`t say that anyone can make a living with 200$. In conclusion I think the most important thing on Hubpages is Good Content that anyone can do with a bit of struggle , a lot of useful links placed in your hubs and of course not to forget the traffic , traffic brings you the income as long as we are not paid to write here. Lets forget about money and get to work big_smile

    This is not a criticism Steve mate.
    The top hubbers are averaging a hub a day.

    Where do they find the time?

    I don't know if it's possible to make money on here, I'm new too, but I came here to get links to some other sites, and I enjoy the opportunity to practice writing (or rewriting) stuff.

    LOL great topic... Mark, with you being an experienced successful hubber, I appreciate the feedback you've provided here.

    I would like to add my thoughts...

    I started my first hub about speeding up your PC and thought I had it completed... it seems I would lie in bed and remember something I didn't talk about! So I would add it the next day.

    I think there are times when adding to your hub can be essential, but I believe you are also right by applying lessons learned to new hubs.

    My first hub had 8-9 links LOL I cut it down to I believe to 5-6 and most of those go to trusted authority sites that are useful to the reader :-)
