Editing a hub could increase your views in several ways. When you edit a hub, you may add some important keywords in the title, summary or in the body, which could rank it higher in search engines. You can also add photos, especially the one that appears at the top, which could be attractive to your readers than the one in the previous version. This may attract more views by readers who go through your profile or through the featured hubs in various topics. After such readers leave comments, the readers following the hub will get notified and will follow the link to check the new comment. Depending on how much you have edited the hub, readers who had already commented may find it useful to leave a comment, rate it again and even share or link it to hubs with similar or related content. That would also increase your views.
Read your Hub and imagine that you are a viewer not the writer. Would you come back to it? Does the title attract you? Do you have it broken down into various capsules with appealing subtitles? Is it easy to 'thumb' through and find information which you want quickly? Do you have content which is interesting enough to keep them reading, leave comments and probably tell others? Do you have 3+ photos? How about polls/quizzes which are interesting? Did you (or a friend) proofread it over very carefully? Do not forget to add keywords - but not too many. There are Hubs about these if you are unfamiliar with them.
The articles on the internet that are read the most are what is known as evergreen articles, meaning they are able to stand the test of time. Since more information is constantly being revealed and discovered then one must constantly update their evergreen articles to make them current. By editing your articles it allows your readers to become aware of any new and important information updated on a given subject.
Once your readers know you practice this, they will go back and read articles that are updated or to see if any new information has been added.
Since Editing involves addition of latest information about the subject, you will significantly reduce the bouncing rate as readers will find sufficient and updated information. Consequently, they will share your hub via the various social media. These shares, especially on the social networks which draw a substantial traffic to your hub(s).
Hubpages basically works for Google. These are the guidelines in which you are writing your hubs. If you do not meet Google's guidelines when writing a hub, you will get no advertisement, therefore no readers.

My article with the highest traffic is getting an edit. What's the logic behind this this if it's top of the SERPs and pulls in 1800 daily views? Is it for a better user experience or to potentially get more views? I would have though hubs with less views could have done with being edited.

A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day astonishingly. Would that hub be defined as "going viral?" I know it's not...

I've come across this word "evergreen" in many hubs. I haven't figured out what it means. Appreciate an explanation. Thanks!

I've been working on a new Hub on and off for the past several days, but haven't published it yet. When I go into the "My Account" menu it shows that this Hub has 23 views, which I found rather odd.How can an unpublished Hub have 23 views already? Is it counting the number of times I've...
