I've also gone back to some of my hubs. A little bit of editing, some additions to the hub and generally, more pictures. I do this everytime I see the traffic falling or if I think I found something interesting that I can add to my hubs.
Every time someone comments in my hub,i use this as an excuse to re-edit and improve hub as we all know nothing in life is perfect and everything can be improved and made better just like evolotion and how things evolve for the better!..
I have spent the last year just re-editing all my existing hubs instead of writing more which has proven to be just as productive and its increased those hubs scores and traffic.
I was understanding it to be the summary (when doing the title) usually I don't add a summary to my hubs, however, I think it is important to make sure you recap the hub in a few quite words. Does that make sense?
Yeah, I re-edit hubs too. Frankly I'm always finding misspellings and other errors. Other times I add information or just improve a paragraph. Writing well is a lot of work for me. It doesn't come naturally.
Thank you for asking this question. I am such a newbie that any question and answer forum is worthwhile for me. There is a fountain of information freely shared here. It's great. I would love to know how to optimize the summary as well. Maybe it should be posted as a question on it's own.
I never go back to Tweak but I have noticed recently, that the experienced Hubbers tend to have loads of tags on their Hubs. One of my To-do's this week is to go through all my Hubs and add more Tags. Might make a difference.
Twice a week I click on my account to see what hubs are getting little or no reads. I either change the Title about, add a few new tags or add a small amount of content.
I did it last night with one that had zero reads in 3 days and it has 5 today, so it's worth a tweak but only ones that get little or no reads, oh or if I notice the adsense ads are not relevant to the hub.
I just leave mine be. Not saying that's a good thing. That's just my thing. I did start tweaking one at one point (no reason, just felt like tweaking something - I can think of worse things to tweak) and it became a rewrite. So I gave up. It remains unpublished.
Not really based on much logic other than the one's I've written that attract the most external traffic are not the one's anyone (on here) would guess them to be. I expect.
I have tweaked several of my hubs, sometimes I find it makes a difference. I would like to understand more of what makes one hub work and another flop. I thought it was the amount of competition in a subject, but I haven't seen it to be true.
When you try to improve the score on an existing hub, for example, if you add in proper SEO techniques after the hub has already been published - or if you add a video to try to make it a more comprehensive hub, is it...
I have created a pitiful 29 hubs in four years. But I'm a lot more active on facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Search. You people MUST LIVE ON HERE! How in the world do you find subjects for crying out loud? You must...
