I've notice that when I first publish a hub the traffic on the first day is nice then drops off dramatically. that's because Hubpages puts the new hubs on its homepage.
Well - I was thinking - deviously - that instead of updating my hubs that I should unpublish them, update with new stuff - hopefully an improvement - then republish them to 'game the system' on getting that hub on the hubpages homepage for at least one day. I know that this is all for nothing because I'm should have a green hub. But since I'm updating them anyway I figure a 'cheat' might make it turn green?
I'm going to update my hub on hiking in bear country and although I'm just adding a video and my latest experience (black bear was 25 feet away) - I'm also going to do a major change on my hub about my dog Chuggers (he saved my life!) The two are related in the incident 3 days ago.
Tip: Do not sleep where you eat. That's a no-no.

The 'total views ever' on the 'My Account' page is not updating when the other stats are changed. This has been the case with at least the last 3 updates today.

How many of us have actually checked how many of our hubs are not featured due to traffic? Eek! over a 100! yep you heard me, 100! Jeesh!Purely because we forget to promote or update them! I have a lot of work to do!...

I wonder how many people regularly add fresh images to their pages! Perhaps these are just as important as renewing the text. What a difference an image makes.
