How often do you go through old hubs to proofread and update them?
I usually go through and update them a little every couple months. Sometimes I will add google keywords, sometimes I will chop up my paragraphs to make them not look so long and sometimes I will add a little extra information.
I go through then once they hit idle status, or close to it if I catch them in time. For the most part I have written what I want to say. It isn't about marketing for me, so I change very little, punctuation or the way the copyright statement is worded. A lot of what I write is poetry and I don't want to edit it, so I change some small aspect, like a comma or something then republish.
I go through them when I notice that any of them are in 'ideal' state, and update them if I think it is worth doing.
I make minor changes, if a particular hub is getting less page views. Generally, it improves in views after that.
Lately I do it a few times a week. I like to try and update hubs with information that is changing on a regular basis.
Honestly, only when they become idle. This is the how I edit 99% of the time.

How do you update your articles? Do you just change one sentence just to change the date, or do you rewrite the entire article? Thanks.

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the editor that read it decided that it was no longer going to be featured. I was told...
