Any one have any suggestions of how you guys give old hubs (that are low performing) some fresh juice.
Thanks for any tips you have!
Edweirdo's hub may help with that...

Re write them, check which keywords are being used to get to it and focus, do a small amount of backlinking, or jsut wait and see what happens
Heaven only know why I did not think of re writing them. The old hubs are of course some of the ones when I first started writing on HP, and did not have a clue on how to use the keyword search tool.
Thanks thisisoli, and WryLit will also check out Edweirdo's hub.
Change the summary text to include the keywords you are targeting in first sentence.
Add an additional 10% of relevant content to them but also make sure your keywords are being optimized.
Go to PingOMatic.com and submit the url of your hub. (This lets the search engines know that content has been updated)
If you are targeting keywords that people are searching for then you should see an improvement it their stats within a day or two.
Sort out your tags - make sure they are appropriate to the hubs. Is the content of good quality? Have you optimized your hubs so as it is good and easy on the eye? Is your metadescription good and optimized with your keywords or phrases? Many people call this 'hub tweaking'. You dont need to promote, just enhance. Google and hp will do this naturally for you!
You could just try that old tried and tested method of "leave well alone"- it worked for me this week.
If you can't be bothered to rewrite them, then I have had success on some occassions with this little technique:
1) Change the title
2) Change + Add Sub titles
3) Check and alter/add tags
4) Add an RSS or News feed if there isn't one already.
5) Backlink a couple of times
6) Ping it somewhere to speed up the crawling, Twitter or somewhere.
Has resurrected some of my completely dead hubs. Doesn't always succeed though.
Just thought I would add this:
I have 2 Hub accounts that I write under...this being the orginal one I signed up for a year or two ago. Within the past week I went back over the hubs I had here and they were TERRIBLE.
I mean, it just goes to show how much you can learn in a year's time! They were so bad that I decided to NOT rework any of the really bad ones and deleted probably 15 hubs or so. They were THAT bad!
My point being, there are hubs that are beyond help in my opinion and in some cases it's just better to start over fresh. It certainly helped my hubber score so that I'm now in the "Adsense earning" 75+ category!
I'm an old hubber. OOOOOOOh you mean old 'hubs', sorry got carried away. I just rewrite them and pop them up again once I have deleted the old bad ones, which in My case, is quite a few.

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and...

I have quite a few old hubs that over a year or more have had less than 100 visits - it's not because they are poor hubs, but mostly because they are in a 'saturated market'.Will this have an impact on my domain as a...

I have done a fair bit of writing, but I'm new here so I want to make sure and fit in! I know one of my hubs missed the mark, but I'd love to hear what I'm doing right, and what I'm doing wrong. I...

8 days, 8 hubs...I've been trying to absorb as much information as I could, but for the most part it just seems like I'm overwhelming myself. I've been reading the forums and popular help hubs on keywords, backlinks,...
