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.
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.
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.
@ sallybea, what a refreshing (no pun intended) idea. Thanks so much. I believe that I will try this. And have a peaceful night.
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.
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.
Hey Sally! This is one of my regular "maintenance" tasks for my published hubs

No update on the stats in 32 hours. Yesterday my Hubber Profile score dropped a point and when I signed in this morning it had dropped another point. My hub score has rapidly dropped 2 points. Is there a connection between the stats not updating and my Hubber score? Seems like a pretty rapid...

How important is it to update the information (text) on our profile pages? Does that do...anything positive for our hubs?

Just curious if people go back and edit their hubs after they first put them up. While I don't think you should publish incomplete hubs, I thought it would be better to get it up and running and going back later to add to it.I haven't seen anything that encourages people to keep adding to...

Hi Hubbers,We've been engaging with some outside help on helping bring more traffic to HubPages. It's going to be an iterative process where we take recommendations, test them out on the site, and adjust. The first round of changes we have been working on is the topic hierarchy. ...

I don't have a lot of hubs, but I'm finding myself updating them every few weeks with new content. Who else is updating their hubs and who isn't? If you don't, do you create a new hub and compile them into a single group?

Some articles you can add to (or update?) every week, but should you? Does anyone know if how often you add to an article changes (positively or negatively) your views, earning potential, etc.
