Does editing a hub effect the ratings on Google, SERP, etc?
I am thinking of two things. First, if someone writes a great SEO article with Amazon links to specific items like "gifts for expectant mothers" can the author update the gifts and corresponding Amazon links periodically without losing their ranking?
Also, if you go back and read an article and notice some typos is there any reason not to edit the article and correct the errors (a few hubs discussing page rankings seem to indicate articles should not be changed)?
Yeah, changing products in the capsule shouldn't effect your ranking at all really. The only thing that would make a large upfront impact is changing the title, summary, or large quantity of the body copy all at once.
Thanks, that is helpful. What percentage of the text counts as a "large quantity". If I have five products reviewed with links to each could I replace an entire product review and link and keep my ranking?
Its really hard to answer that because im not google! If the products are in the same theme like all Christmas ornaments then it should hold the same or higher/lower rankings. The risk is losing a keyword tail by removing it/editing the page.

I went back and edited some of my old Hubs, mainly to get rid of unattractive and unnecessary spacing. Then I read on the forum that when you edit a Hub it then gets re-indexed by Google. I'm not exactly sure what this means or what effect it has. Those old Hubs I edited were pretty good in terms...

I’ve had a hub scraped by 2 different sites in the time between when a hub goes out of ‘pending’ into ‘featured’ and when google indexes that hub. The copies are ranking above me for a couple of terms – the scraped articles were indexed 18 hours before mine was [EDIT: I've just...
