I went back through my hubs and added a capsule to all of them. Before I did that, I edited one, then checked my HP feed (home) page to make sure they weren't all going to show on it. My new hubs are listed on my home page when I add them. The hub I edited as a test was not listed, so I assumed it was safe to do this maintenance on all of my hubs without clogging other people's home pages.
However,now I'm getting a lot of traffic, all from within HP. I'm pretty sure that I just spammed the home pages of my followers.
If so, how do I keep this from happening again as I edit groups of hubs? Is my only option to edit only a few at a time?
I'm sure that, as my skills improve, I'll want to go back and change old hubs, rearrange text capsules to include more capsule titles, more Amazon or eBay capsules, etc. I wouldn't want my followers to be zapped again when I did that.
If you have suggestions, I would be grateful.
Editing hubs does nothing to the feed, yours or your followers. Evidence shows that editing your hubs every now and then helps your search rankings anyway, so it's actually a highly recommended practice.
Newly-published Hubs are sent to followers but not follow-up edits.
Maybe it is your own page views as you edit.. the red arrows always appears when you edit, is that what you are talking about?

Mine went horrible. They erased some of my facts, added new (false) ones in, added ugly photos, removed some of my polls, and now I'm going to have to spend my Sunday rewriting all my hubs they ruined. Sure, they helped...

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...

I just got the "happy" news that one of my hubs about Cancer Moon Sign People has been moved to Exemplore. I don't feel happy, it was moved there months ago, and there was nothing wrong with it. It was...

Just in the past 10 minutes or so I've already gotten 3 spam comments, all on the same hub! And whenever I delete one, it seems another immediately comes up!I'm sure that when I wake up tomorrow (it's almost 1 in the...

Is it all about views or does something else come into the mix? If you have had one or more, could you shed a little light on this, please.
