    ....the products in your product reviews get outdated and the hubs lose traffic?

      Write product hubs with more than one product, so as and when products get outdated, you can simply replace the product with another product.

      You could do a couple of things -

      Update the product links.
      Ignore the hub - there's other fish in the sea.
      Make big changes.

      This can apply to any hub.  In some cases it makes sense to update it.  One of my first articles over at Associated Content has over 58,000 page views.  It's about the HGTV Dream Home, and I know that it will be a hotly searched topic over the next three months.  Since I originally wrote it in 2009 and it can be edited, I'm updating it for the upcoming season.  Hopefully it will get some added Google oomph while it gets changed too.

    As long as you keep the title and URL somewhat specific, can't you just go in and add updated products?

      Yeah, do that, and, if the product is just outdated, like VHS, then just sit on it for a few years and then change the title to "Retro Electronics: VHS players are the new aphrodesiac."

      I guess you could add updated products, seems like a lot of fussy about mind.

    Updating it is probably the best if the URL allows it and you have new products. Otherwise, write a new hub that will earn you money for the next few years. It might be better to have specific information and earn a lot from that. When the hub dies, write a new one with once again specific information. It is not evergreen content but you know that whenever you set out to write product hubs.
