I have been contemplating for some time the idea of taking all of my story time book recommendation hubs and dividing them up into shorter-length articles by topic.
Currently they are organized by month, for example "Storytime themes for the month of April," with 4 or 5 theme recommendations with books to read for that theme.
I have a lot of cross-linking going on with these hubs so taking them apart would be a huge amount of work, but my gut tells me it would be a better return on my efforts because the topics would be more directly searchable. Thing is, this will require me to probably take about 15 hubs offline, which I could do in the space of a few weeks, but probably not faster. Is it worth the hit to my score to revamp these? BTW, if you check them out, one of my hubs has been delisted so many links are already broken.
Thanks for your feedback.
The one I checked was pretty to look at but very long. You could try to create some new hubs by shortening them, maintaining the original as a core hub, see how it goes. Or you will lose search engine ranking generated through aging.
That was my thought too. Keeping the originals as core hubs is a good idea. It would be a bit redundant but all of them are long like that, so there is ample material to create many smaller hubs. Those hubs vary in quality because they were written over a period of about 18 months, but a lot of effort has gone into them and I don't see them performing as I'd like. Thanks for your feedback, Website Examiner! Maybe I will go for it, then.

I have 29 hubs ( the 30th almost finished) yet only 1/3 get traffic at all. The goal for the rest of this month is to revamp my hubs, make them stellar (tho most of them follow stellar guidelines), make them SEO-friendly and get them promoted on social media and indexed by search engine. My goal is...

How often do you revamp or reread your old writing?I've been doing a lot of updates lately to my website and I'm starting to rework some hubs as well. When I go back and reread, I always find something I can improve or a mistake to fix. Some things that are older are truly cringe worthy...

I was wondering, would Google like it better if I write a new, fresh article on a subject or revamp an old article I have written years ago on the same subject but that is currently unfeatured? This may sound like a no-brainer decision, and therefore I am leaning more towards the latter option...

Tomorrow or Sunday i will publish my 53rd Hub. I try to publish at least one Hub a week. I'm thinking of taking a week off and working on improving my Hubs. I'm only getting an average of 50-80 pageviews a day. Is it advisable to take a week off to improve my current portfolio of Hubs?

It doesn't appear in hubtivity, so how do people know that you are putting out an improved hub?
