Just something I noticed. The hubs that have been edited by Editbot have already picked up more traffic than what is usual for them, even after dismissing my view to see the changes. We also know that Google loves fresher content. Is it possible that our Google overlords see this as a sort of site wide mass editing? What I mean is this. If Editbot makes changes, than the hub has been edited. Does this mean we will see a boost in traffic due to these edits, just as I would see a (temporary) boost in traffic if I went in to make changes? And on a larger scale, would this pull in more traffic to the site in general, not just those edited by the bot? I'd also love to know if anyone else is seeing this, or if my hubs just suddenly became popular for no particular reason. (Not that I'd mind!)
Editbot? I have been a member of HP for now going on five years and littlethings, this is THE first I have heard of this application. Exactly what does it do or not do?
If it would give me more traffic, I would be glad to climb aboard.
Yes, I was getting a bit more traffic to edited Hubs (edited by editbot). That would be awesome if you're right and this would cause a site-wide increase in traffic.
Marina just posted an update related to EditBot here.
Needless to say, that's The Plan and I hope you're right.
As for my own traffic, I haven't noticed anything different yet.
It might cause more traffic for a while - until Google notices what is going on and wallops the HubPages big time.
That would be it considers that any republishing represents the site as having new content when actually all that's happened is one or two typos have been corrected
Google does NOT like sites which republish without new content.
The two hubs of mine that have been Editbotted have declining traffic today.

I would like a better explanation of the Hub Score. I have a Hub that I uploaded on May 12th, it's ranked #2 on Google search results for its main keyword phrase, it's getting 175 visits per day sent by Google,...

If I am getting traffic from dogpile but I have never listed anything with them, could I safely assume that this traffic is from some sort of backlink from someone else? I'm not real savvy in this traffic resource stuff...

In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense...

I've noticed with a few hubs that for a month they might not get many hits, and then all of a sudden, they start getting outside traffic. Does this mean they've gone up in google rank or that they've maybe just been...

I hope Robin will come by and comment on this one. I have been going through all of my old comments and deleting any that don't add anything to the conversation, but some of my hubs have a ton of very useful and...
