    Is it O.K. to go back into old hubs and make sure there are absolutely no errors?  I have my Fiance and my sister help me find typos before and after I publish a hub. It helps a lot. I don't think I would try to rewrite an old hub, just tweak it. Any advice would be appreciated.

      You can go back to old hubs and changed them total with a 'tabla rasa' a fresh  sheet  of paper. only thing you cannot change is the URL

      Going back to each and every hub at between 1 and 2 months of age to re-read and correct errors is my SOP.  I find that by that time I have forgotten enough of the hub to read it with fresh eyes and usually find a typo or two.  Sometimes even a confusing sentence that I understood quite well when written, but no longer makes good sense.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll start by combing through to find typos and grammar issues. Maybe for some practice.

    Exactly, also another benefit is that Google likes fresh content as long as that content is still Relevant. So it can't be a bad thing, it's something I really need to start doing more of.

    I agree dipless, Even when I go over my writing, numerous times and even wait a day or two and I'm refreshed, I still find typos.  I'm getting better at it. I told my Fiance and sister if I keep writing like this I'm going to need a proof reader smile A second pair of eyes really helps. I hope one day I can be good enough were I can spot it right away.  I even miss some typos when I read my hubs out loud.

    Great advise given already. Just wanted to tell you could not do yourself and your hubs a better favor than tweaking them, proof reading and editing  them.. I mean to do it myself, but seems like I am too slow when it comes to that lol

      I know what you mean Sofs. Even the thought of going back to my first hub...oh boy!  I almost rather not read it. I joined Hubpages, a little over a year ago, wrote one hub and didn't come back until almost a year later. Now I'm ready to write.  I suppose the typo will always be a thing to watch out for. And grammar and keeping my tenses in the right order.  With practice I'm hoping that there will be less to have to fix. smile)
