    Is going back and editing old hub, adding better tags, a good way to get more traffic?

    Good question. I don't know an absolute answer. What I have done is unpublished about 1/3 of my hubs. There views have diminished checking here and at Google Analytics. There scores were below 70 for longer than 3 months. Some I feel have value. Some were experiments. Some were just flashes to publish. Some are linked to by other hubs. Many are poems.

    A long way to giving you an answer - YES. Consider what entropy is in the land of communication. Cause a little Chaos and observe. The only hitch in my eval process is it worth it vs. writing a new content rich hub. Or, how 'green' is it or can it be recycled gaining value or what would the Return on Investment be. What intrinsic value is there for a long term gain.

    Most of my hubs have strong hubpage readership. Yet, I do and know very little of SEO techniques. So, my strongest question I ask myself is how 'green' is that particular hub regarding the greater market potential the 'internet or world wide web.'

    yes! Absolutely! Google cares about quality over quantity! If you edit your hubs to make them better, it is likely that you will get more traffic, and earn more money on the side!

    Definitely! But eliminating useless tags also helps. And be sure to add a summary to each hub, too.  Google loves summaries!

    Yes, definitely! Updating your title with a more relevant key-phrase, adding more content and updating your tags and keywords will get you more organic traffic. I do it all the time and I see results every time.

    I believe that going back and editing an old hub and adding better tags is a good way to get more traffic. As long as your editing improves the quality of the hub and stays on topic, and your new tags make your hub more easily found, it will likely boost your traffic.

    Most definitely. Revisit your hubs every few months or so.

    Use the keyword suggestions that appear in your stats menu after afew months. Use these suggestions to update possible tags and look at the Title Tuner now and again to see how you may be able to update your titles.

    Hub editing is a good way of improving your future hubs too.  Use the editing process to learn what works and what doesn't.

    From my Hubpages writing experience, I have discovered that SEO does little to get more internet traffic to the article.  It is best to produce more quality hubs with rich keywords instead of going back to an article to increase the internet traffic.  Going back is never a good idea when writing articles and it is better to move on and write more and be sure to use the social media, Facebook and Twitter.

    I have actually begun to try this.  So far I did notice a rise in traffic.  I think that it is a good idea, it definitely is worth the try.

    with your hubber score of 96, it would seem you would already know the answer to your question.

    Yes, it will definitely help.  You can always edit things and add things.  Or even remove things.  It might make it better and more people will at least read it, and hopefully comment or vote up.  OR  you could also delete the hub and then make a new one with the same information, but better.
