    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.

      When I update, I change as many images as I can and add any new ones that are relevant. I see images as being just as important as text, for both freshness and improved reader appeal.

      If you can take your own images, great. If you can get public domain images, edit them to suit your needs and it will also make them original in the eyes of search engines.

        Definitely beneficial, my traffic has improved vastly as a result and HubPages staff have seen fit to snip and make changes to this hub. I would say it is as important to update images as it is to change the text.

      That is some felt hat, a gorgeous mix of blended pastel with a hint of dark cloud looming. I'd wager there's no other image like that on t'internet! A search engne's dream.

        They wear them to church in Cornwall.

          The people in Cornwall must have good taste:)

        chef-de-jour, that is one of the nicest compliments I have received.  There is only one hat like this and I am proud to say that I made it:)  I am the photographer too so that makes me doubly proud.  The hours I have spent learning my craft have been repaid.in full measure.  Thank you so much!

      I do updating when I find an image that needs improvement, which is often.  However, I rarely update all of the images that appear in any given article.

        Not all hubs are easy to improve and I am sure not many of yours need improvement:)

      @smile sallybea, what a refreshing (no pun intended) idea. Thanks so much. I believe that I will try this. And have a peaceful night.

        Always good to hear from you Kenneth, you have a peaceful night too.

    Great idea! I need to try it. I would, initially, try only if a better substitute is available. It may not be feasible in all cases. Thanks for your suggestion.

      You are very welcome.  I was always told that just a slight change to either words or text means Google has to refresh the material and that can only mean that even a small change will make a difference.

    I often change photos when updating hubs. I almost always use my own photos and if not I try to find better ones. I had a tendency of showing too many photos, so I'm taking a lot of them down.

      As long as the images are relevant and add to a reader's understanding of the subject matter, I don't think that you can have too many.

      Pointless prettification of a page is not going to help.

        It is often the picture which draws me in and if my own traffic is an example I would say that my traffic has improved since making these changes.  The images are definitely part of the subject matter, they are the original item photographed in a different way.

    This is brilliant, I will have to start using gifs more intentionally as  "content" on my website.  Thx.

      You are welcome.  Can't see why it would not work.
