Also, in case I need to edit my hub after publishing, how much time does google take to index it again?
Is their any way to change the URL?
Google loves fresh content, and that's what it thinks it's getting every time you change your hub. So edit away! You cannot change the URL, however, and the time it takes Google to re-index the hub could vary from hours to days to weeks.
Thanks Ironhner. Everytime I edited my hub, I used to feel very uncomfortable. I hope that your input would help me to ease out..
Yes, it's fine if you see ways to improve it. Remember, you can hit the Publish button only once but you can edit it many times. When you publish you do want to make sure you're happy with the quality but many people edit their hubs at a later date too.
I see it like having an orchard. You need to prune and feed the trees as they grow in order to maximise the harvest. A great way to give new life to a hub with falling traffic is to insert some up to date references, for example a movie with the same theme or a global event. You can also add in a new keywords.
Hubs are living documents. In other words editing often is not only OK but is one of the keys to continually increasing earnings.
When I wrote my first hub I did not have a good idea of keyword research (still learning now). I edited the tile and wording several times and I saw a rise in traffic after these tweekings.
Editing a hub is not a problem at all. But unpublishing and then publishing at later day will surely affect search engine position of the hub.
I normally find that publishing and then asking for a review in the Extreme Criticism forum usually results in quite a lot of revision.
To be serious... adding content and tweaking keywords, additional tags, better summary - all in response to hits or lack of, and comments or lack of - will hopefully make things work better.
I don't really regard any hub as finished.
