    Do you update/make changes to older hubs that are still performing exceptionally well?

    I've been updating my older hubs and come across a couple that I have not touched since creating them and are still receiving almost a 100 views a day. I'm kind of scared that if I toy/play with them that might change. Have any of you done this already?

    I would consider 100 views per day outstandingly successful! Mostly, it seems to me that ANY editing should be purposeful: That is, you have new information, you want to correct problems with organization, you want to correct errors, or you have figured out how to use keywords or links to drive more traffic.

    I only read one of your hubs, but based on that, I'd say your writing and presentation is excellent!

      Thanks for the compliment/information blueheron, I appreciate that. I'm definitely still learning how to use the key words

    Yes I have, Alphadogg16 and I'm just as hesitant as you are about it. It has caused the score to decrease because it goes back through QAP. However, it does eventually go back up (sometimes) when traffic picks up. I try to update regularly because I was told/ read somewhere that Google likes articles with a current date. I think it plays a role in the article getting on the first search page. If I update my best performing hubs, I try to make a really minor change, e.g., a word, just enough to get that current update date for Google.

    Agree with bluehuron.  Purposefully editing is the key.  When I re-read a hub there is almost always some that I feel I could have said better.  Congrats on the 100 views a day!

    Sometimes I do. When I haven't typed a hub for awhile and I check my hub status I may go in and change a photo or add some thing. It all depends on if the viewing is dropping.
