Are we encouraged to update our Hubs?
I'm sure this has been covered everywhere. I am so spread thin, I just thought I'd ask in a question. Are we encouraged to keep our hubs updated? I know we are to check for broken or bad links, but should I be keeping my hubs super fresh. At Squidoo, we were encouraged to update our hubs from once a week to once a month. Of course, updates are true updates. Thank you!
Absolutely! Although, depending on the article, you likely will not need to update it every week. I typically only update mine every 6 months or so, unless I have broken links.
I just started to update my old hubs and share links to twitter, facebook, etc, noticed my traffic increased, very beneficial
Updating older hubs will get them 'featured' and thus more visible to search engines. So, there is good reason to do it. Though the time investment is certainly worth considering. A hub may have gone idle for a number of reasons, one of which could have been that it just wasn't interesting to web surfers. In which case you could update it and have it fall idle again after a few months. So it's all about balancing which hubs will work best for you, be they new or updated.
Thank you everyone for answering my question. I really appreciate you taking the time to do so. All are great answers, and I see my original thinking is correct. I didn't want to do something that HP frowns upon. So, I needed to double check.
