when updating my hubs with new info , do I have to send out a message to followers or is there a way that they will know about the updatesince I believe many would like to be aware of the updates done.
Can this be clarified please?
Hubs can, and should, be updated as required. Did you discover a typographical error, or did one of your readers point out a factual mistake? Each hub should be as good as you can make it, which sometimes involves updating and/or revision.
Thanks Chasuk. But am wondering if frequent editing for adding matter or tweaking the hub for that matter would lower the hubscore?
What's your take on this?
Revising a hub doesn't lower your HubScore.
As far as revising it frequently, I'd say that it wasn't ready to be submitted if it needs more than occasional and minor revision.
Thanks for the input Chasuk. Infact one of my hubs was stagnating at 66-67 hubscore. Just adding 2 links with the links capsule raised the hub score by 5-6 points. I can't attribute this to any thing else as the hub score was hovering around the 66-67 points mark since atleast 2 weeks.
Am I right in my deduction ?
Hubs really shouldn't be updated, per se. Each hub should be a completed work. If you want to write additional hubs on the same topic? Or to expand on a view point from one of your hubs, then your followers will be notified when you publish the new hub.
Nonsense. Updating a hub keeps it relevant to the search engines and readers.
Cags is right, though it is good to edit your hubs, it may not be a great idea to add a whole lot of new information into it as to expand it. Write it as another hub linking it to your previous hub.
But if you need to add more information for any particular reason, then you can share your hub with your followers by clicking on share below your hubs.
I frequently update hubs in response to comments, emails, search history, boredom etc.. I seem to recall that a webpage that changes is likely to be better thought of by the great google than one that just sits unchanged for many years.
I update hubs every once in a while. It's amazing how you can find even minor mistakes that can discredit you - typos, word usage (sometimes another word or phrase just reads better), redesign - sometimes I just don't see certain things when I first write it. Sometimes, I've found or taken a better photograph, or find and use my own instead of one from another source.

Just curious if people go back and edit their hubs after they first put them up. While I don't think you should publish incomplete hubs, I thought it would be better to get it up and running and going back later to add to it.I haven't seen anything that encourages people to keep adding to...

I don't have a lot of hubs, but I'm finding myself updating them every few weeks with new content. Who else is updating their hubs and who isn't? If you don't, do you create a new hub and compile them into a single group?

I am still new to Hubpages and have been enjoying a rather successful start. Thank you to those who have voted my articles up and those few of you who have begun to follow me. But I have noticed one thing of late and maybe it is the way it goes but I think it is disrespectful. I have commented on a...
