Are you getting tired of editing your idled hubs?
Is there anyone else out there on the hub pages who are getting tired of editing their idled hubs (Sleeping Zzz's), just to find that within a couple of short weeks that they have to do it all over again?
Yes. I am so tired. If my hubs go idle for a 2nd time after I edit them I am now deleting them and publishing them at another site that doesn't idle my hubs. So far this has been working great. This way my article isn't wasting away in idle land instead they are making money somewhere else.
Frankly, I haven't edited any of them. I wrote them the way I wanted them to be in the first place. I don't want to change them. Joan, that's a good idea.
I have one hub that lays idle. I think rather than just editing the hub try focusing the content of the hub into words and topics that are much more in demand. Also try promoting the hub in your news feeds and on facebook. Over all you might find that editing alone does not boost traffic. To get better traffic you may need to refocus the content and use keywords in there that are in greater demand.

Yesterday I went into edit mode on one of my non-featured (idled) hubs but DID NOT make a single change. (The reason I went in there was because I just wanted to look at my summary, which I can't do without going...
