Using a title for my article is important so Google searches can find it. Therefore, I have revised my articles many times. Now, I am starting to think this is not a good idea because readers who read the earlier versions would miss out and not read the information added later. However, when I notice a typo or a misspelled word I correct it immediately. I find it is difficult to proofread my own stuff.
Depends on the Hub. There are several I've gone back into numerous times to change/update things, and others that have been the same ever since I first posted them.
I will go through and edit if the score falls too much or if the views drop off considerably over time. Changing the pictures out, clarifying, and just a general touch up. This will often breathe new life into a hub and make it search friendly again. I always change a misspell or grammar error when I find them.
I actually haven't edited my hubs much. Thanks for the question. Now I feel like I need to.
I found editing hubs is a problematic thing for several reasons.
(1) Initially when I write a hub and submit it for publication, it gets published immediately. But when I edit a hub, I find it taking a long time to get published. Sometimes around 3 days
(2) At times, whatever I do to comply to the suggestions of the system, it does not get published. There has been three occasions in which I had to finally abandon trying.
I would love to make small corrections to some silly mistakes I had done in some hubs. But with the present fate of things I am afraid to do so.
I am very new here and am not aware of the situations that was happening earlier. Correct me if I am wrong.

Do you spend much time re-editing your published hubs? I wonder if my perfectionism is a waste.

Hi, I am wondering. After reading and browsing through the hubs and going through the advice of other hubbers on how to improve our articles, are we allowed to edit our hubs (add pictures, videos etc)? -- michelle

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...
