So far, I have built several hubs, and the scores of them are not high.
Someone suggested me that updating the old hubs may help me improve my hubscore.
Should each of hubs be updated? Frequently or occasionally?
Only update when you realise you could have written something a bit better, or to change your keywords.
Each hub is a finished article at time of publication (or should be), but of course you can still change things for the better whenever you want.
Google likes fresh content, so add a news caspule to your hub. I usually place mine underneath the comments capsule at the end. I don't really want someone to read my hub and exit via a news capsule story so I kinda half-hide it down there usually.
The news keeps changing so the contents of the hub change in google's eyes.
Like Izzy says, each Hub is intended to be a finished article at the time of publication. They're not like a blog where you keep going back and updating. The only time it's worth updating is when you learn something new about Hubbing - for instance, you might learn more about what makes a good layout, or you might understand more about SEO now.
I suggest you post some of your Hubs in the Extreme Hub Makeover section to get suggestions for how to improve the scores.
Actually it depends. For me, I will only update when I feel neccesary. You can start updating hubs if there are new info or latest news that you think it could increase the traffic and make the hub richer in content.
Just my 2 cents
Personally I think it's only really time to update your hub when it becomes outdated or incorrect. You could also raise your number of hubs by writing a whole new one if the old hub is REALLY outdated. If you find a new way of increasing traffic or something that you'd like to add to all of your hubs, such an RSS feed, then it's okay to update. Hope I helped
update hubs with good and updated information that will add to the hub.
Doing a keyword search and making the necessary changes seems to work for me. If the nature of the hub is such that you can provide fresh information frequently why not - as in technical hubs.
You may want to try updating a couple of them , check the results and decide on the rest later.
My hubs are like living organisms that must be constantly watered, and nurtured.
If you read them, you will also notice that I often apply large amounts of fertilizer
If you don't update them every few minutes they get lost in a cyberspace

Lately I've come across a lot of Hubs with outdated information in them. If I comment or email to suggest it needs updating, I get the response, "Oh I wrote that ages ago."Sorry, that's not...

I have been writing for over 4 years at hubpages and in that time period there have been many changes. What I need to do and I'm sure many of you also need to do, is update old hubs that were written when I did not have...

As I plow through the lenses to become hubs, two of them I edited do not show the change date of the edit although the updates are visible. Since I am using the date to keep track of the edited lenses, I keep re-editing...

affect the authors search engine rankings on other pages, blogs, or websites?

I don't have a lot of hubs, but I'm finding myself updating them every few weeks with new content. Who else is updating their hubs and who isn't? If you don't, do you create a new hub and compile them into a single...
