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.

Do you ever go back and edit your old hubs? Why or why not?

Just curious if people go back and edit their hubs after they first put them up. While I don't think you should publish incomplete hubs, I thought it would be better to get it up and running and going back later to add to it.I haven't seen anything that encourages people to keep adding to...
