    I have edited some of my older hubs and refined them. Does this work for or against me?

    In theory it should work for you, you probably added some fresh content, maybe a picture or a video and placed some links to your other hubs. That should be seen as improvement, and search engines love new content.
    That is of course if you added something considered good, it may not help you, but it will definitely not go against you, you can be sure of that. So there are two things you can expect, the score of those hubs going up, or staying where it is.

    A theory is "a likely assumption unproven". It not a theory. I employ refining my hubs after publication all the time. It works in favor of your hub score. However, here is how you'd kill the traffic to the hub. Once it's initially published HubPages works with Google to index it on its search engine. Significantly altering the content will "push it down" the line in search results. The almost death blow is editing ANY PART of the title. I did that to my hub "Canonization: How God Proves to Us the Bible is His Word—Rule #3" by correcting a typo I made with an "S" after "Canonization". My score once was 77, since the edit it has hovered around 68-69.
    Refine ONLY (each time)
    3% or less of total hub content (with bold facing, CAPS, punctuation, 45 words or less of new info, etc)
    add a photo or capsule, esp links (don't delete none)
    put it in a group
    after 2-3 consecutive reader comments add an individual comment to for each response. let at least 2 hours pass.

    You must be right about editing the title and score going down... I have seen it happen on 2 of my articles!
