When you edit an existing hub does this bring additional traffic to it?
Depends on what the edit is. In fact, it's essential to tweak keywords, etc., in order to adjust it so that it ranks.
I have had more traffic when I edit a hub, but I think it has to do with the type of edit you do. If you make it better, it is more likely to get more traffic than if the quality stays the same. There will probably be a little blip upwards because there is recent content, but it will go back down if you don't increase the quality.
Taking out the typos and grammar mistakes, making sure there are good keywords in the title, and tweaking the content to make it as rich as possible, adding capsules if it helps the reader, will all increase the quality of the hub, and make rank higher and bring traffic for the long run.
Yes, it most certainly DOES bring more traffic to the hub. Here's the thing though - you only want to mess with it when you are sure that you found a way to IMPROVE the hub.
Now, I don't care if you're improving the readability of your text, adding some text, adding a video, adding a very much relevant link from here or somewhere else to your hub, or finding a new and better picture for your hub, or maybe even changing the keywords that you ever so wisely titled your picture's capsule with...or even moving pictures around from above, below, or to the side of your wisely titled with keywords multiple text capsules - if you improve the looks of the page, or the text presentation of the page, add value by adding relevant and related links with keyword titles for the link capsule.....there's a TON of stuff you can ALWAYS do to make a hub BETTER.
I've yet to see one I thought was "perfect," sad thing is...it's easier for me to see what I think needs to be done to someone else's hubs than my own.

Oops! That title is supposed to say "Impact of Massive Hub Editing"!I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has totally rewritten a Hub that ranked well and was getting a fair amount of traffic (say, 20-50 visits per day).Also, anyone who has experimented with deleting a significant...

If you add additional content to an existing hub, are your fans alerted to this fact, or , is it better to create a new hub and then link?

One of my Hubs was un-featured after four years of being featured. Reason: poor content?!OK, but when I tried to edit it, it says: Sorry, you can not edit your hub while an editor is working on it.This happened a few days ago and I still can't edit it!The saddest part is that this is my most...

I plan on editing my existing hubs, the ones with high traffic to get them to rank even better for terms they already rank for, but not at #1 spot. I have a premium SEM rush account using which I can see what I am ranking for and what I can improve upon. I use this on my own website with a lot of...

This is a topic that will help lots of people. We all tinker with our hubs now and then. What is the best thing you changed on your hub that resulted in more traffic?

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank space where it should be.When I went into "edit" mode I can see the...
