What is "evergreen content" in your own words?
In my own words, evergreen content is like rosemary - content staying fresh and fragrant throughout the year. One example is a hub that provides information on losing weight.
In your own words and experiences, how do you define it? Provide an example of one if you can.
evergreen content is content on topics and subjects that will always be searched, not current news events or the latest fads or gadgets. some examples; parenting, healthy foods, how-to hubs, travel destinations, careers, job hunting skills. I ask myself if someone would still want to know this info many years from now.
Your answer to your own question -- about weight loss -- is a good example of "evergreen". Non-evergreen would be a Hub about Oprah's current weight at the time you write it. You just KNOW that will be obsolete in a month. :-)
Dabeaner, good point - you can't always write on some celebrity's current weight or how long he or she spends time in jail - you have to write on something year round, like keeping modest in clothing, for instance. As for you, RebekahELLE, I agree with the question you ask yourself whether the topic is still relevant or not.
Evergreen content is material vague enough to avoid using pertinent information like dates,times, and references to recent occurrences while SEO friendly enough to attract plenty of readers through the use of buzz words.

Can a Hub be too long?Hello! I was just thinking that perhaps the reason my Hub scores are lower than I’d like is that perhaps my Hubs are too long? Many of my Hubs are between 2700 & 3600 words. Are these Hubs too long in terms of what Google wants or HubPages...

One of my articles on an HP niche site recently underwent the Premium Pro editing process. The editor decided to add about 800 words of her own research to supposedly "improve" my article. Personally, I hated the addition. I do not feel comfortable including other...

HP has always said do evergreen hubs. Politics is certainly not evergreen. it has a short "shelf-life" if it is about a current event. And since I would mostly write about U.S. politics, they might have very little appeal in other countries. I use my blogs to write about politics,...
