Which is better, to edit an old Hub that has a low score or just write more new Hubs?
Imho, a little work on old hubs goes a long way. It doesn't take much time to add/change a photo and put in a little updated information. It does make a difference.
Good question and one that many hubbers find difficult to answer!
I myself do edit older hubs but only those I feel are worth refreshing. I must admit there are several on the waiting list for treatment but I'm too busy writing and researching new hubs so the older ones tend to get left behind!
Older hubs with low scores are said to bring down the other better scoring hubs. I'm not too sure about this theory so I do not delete older hubs, I radically edit them.
Right now I'm trying to concentrate on writing more new hubs to boost my overall numbers and earn a little bit more! It's a tough decision to make - I wish you well whatever you decide to do.
I would say if your older hub was getting any traffic at all it would be best to update that one. The search engines have already found it and will look at it again after you update.
I always edit lower scoring hubs, usually with great results. You have already put in the time writing a hub, improve on that and the score should improve.
If you delete a hub with low hub scope, the entire efforts you have made to publish that hub is getting wasted. Instead you can add more valuable content and supporting photos, videos etc. and convert it into a great one that may help you earn for years..
I agree with cam8510 we used our time to write the hub in the first place so, sprucing it up a bit can really make a difference.
Both -- occasional updates are a good thing for the hubs, and well-established content is good for your searches. At the same time, new material is important to keep readers engaged.

Does having many hubs count much to gaining more income in HP? I wonder how some hubbers have less than 50 hubs yet are deriving a good amount of revenue from good traffic numbers, while other hubbers have hundreds of articles and are just doing so-so income. I've noticed that updating and...

How is it hubbers with less hubs get better ranking than hubbers with more hubs?I find that certain hubbers who have written less hubs have better ranking than hubbers who have written far more hubs. Why is it so?

I've been writing for years and I've never managed to get a hub itself to have a 100 score (the profile is a different story)... but today it finally happened!Oddly enough with a hub I wrote on the 23rd of last month on the topic of traffic (who knew that'd be a hot topic these days )...So I guess...

I recently deleted two of my own articles that constantly edged around score 60. I eliminated them in hope that it would bring up my overall hub scores therefore my profile scores, especially they were both duplicates. I have been posting one hub every few days to over a week, each time the new hub...

Hub score than I do?
by Nikolic Predrag 5 years ago
I'm here nearly three months. I have published 11 hubs. All of my hubs have score over 80 and just one have 78. This is a hub about my country, Serbia. I did a lot of research and spent over a week to write this article. Probably there are some grammar mistakes, because English is not my native...
