So far, I have built several hubs, and the scores of them are not high.
Someone suggested me that updating the old hubs may help me improve my hubscore.
Should each of hubs be updated? Frequently or occasionally?
Only update when you realise you could have written something a bit better, or to change your keywords.
Each hub is a finished article at time of publication (or should be), but of course you can still change things for the better whenever you want.
Google likes fresh content, so add a news caspule to your hub. I usually place mine underneath the comments capsule at the end. I don't really want someone to read my hub and exit via a news capsule story so I kinda half-hide it down there usually.
The news keeps changing so the contents of the hub change in google's eyes.
Like Izzy says, each Hub is intended to be a finished article at the time of publication. They're not like a blog where you keep going back and updating. The only time it's worth updating is when you learn something new about Hubbing - for instance, you might learn more about what makes a good layout, or you might understand more about SEO now.
I suggest you post some of your Hubs in the Extreme Hub Makeover section to get suggestions for how to improve the scores.
Actually it depends. For me, I will only update when I feel neccesary. You can start updating hubs if there are new info or latest news that you think it could increase the traffic and make the hub richer in content.
Just my 2 cents
Personally I think it's only really time to update your hub when it becomes outdated or incorrect. You could also raise your number of hubs by writing a whole new one if the old hub is REALLY outdated. If you find a new way of increasing traffic or something that you'd like to add to all of your hubs, such an RSS feed, then it's okay to update. Hope I helped
update hubs with good and updated information that will add to the hub.
Doing a keyword search and making the necessary changes seems to work for me. If the nature of the hub is such that you can provide fresh information frequently why not - as in technical hubs.
You may want to try updating a couple of them , check the results and decide on the rest later.
My hubs are like living organisms that must be constantly watered, and nurtured.
If you read them, you will also notice that I often apply large amounts of fertilizer
If you don't update them every few minutes they get lost in a cyberspace

Some articles you can add to (or update?) every week, but should you? Does anyone know if how often you add to an article changes (positively or negatively) your views, earning potential, etc.

I've been busily updating one article a day to get the purdy 2019 date. As we all know, updating an article is risky business around here; but there is no help for it if one wants the current year date. So far, so good. Anyone else rolling the dice?

Can anyone explain why my page views have plummeted in the last few days. They have gone from 300 per day to 25 per day. Before December I was steadily increasing page views and was up in the high 300's. Throughout December the views slowly dropped down to the mid 200's then out of the blue 3 days...

I have been writing for over 4 years at hubpages and in that time period there have been many changes. What I need to do and I'm sure many of you also need to do, is update old hubs that were written when I did not have a very good idea about how things work online. So now I will sit and update 4...

As I plow through the lenses to become hubs, two of them I edited do not show the change date of the edit although the updates are visible. Since I am using the date to keep track of the edited lenses, I keep re-editing them but the original date never changes. Is this an issue on HubPages or a...

Lately I've come across a lot of Hubs with outdated information in them. If I comment or email to suggest it needs updating, I get the response, "Oh I wrote that ages ago."Sorry, that's not acceptable. There is no date on a Hub so as far as your reader is concerned, the...
