I'm curious about this. As for my own hubs, many have had to sit idle for 3-6 months, then would start to get great traffic as Google gives respect to older content. Will the fact that search engines can't see our content mean that traffic will reduce? Or will re-publishing them after 3-6 months have the same effect as naturally aging?

Interesting reply. Normally it seems to take 3-6 months for hubs to get well established. I've had dead hubs just 'take off' many times. Worried that won't happen now ... still, I guess constant tweaking is good, so long as you have the time for it
In regards to the issue of "Time", you are so right Brett. I find that instead of creating new hubs, or even spending the time reading and commenting on other's hubs, I often ended up spending my time tweaking hubs or just staring blank!
While I agree hubs should be updated, there is a big difference. A 'dead hub' is not in search engines and as far as I can see, won't mature. A well written matured hub will often continue to draw traffic, even when not updated for a long time.
A simple solution is just to edit something in the hub. But, this doesn't help content to age naturally and gives hubbers unnecessary work. I am lookng to find out if aged content will still gain traffic ... Or, if we have to edit hubs every month
