I'm thinking editing some of my older hubs and just wanted to ask how other people go about this. Do you unpublish, edit then republish or do you edit whilst your hub is still published. I'm not the fastest worker and was planning to unpublish them first and do them properly, before republishing.
I don't unpublish, but just go ahead and edit. If you are not getting any traffic anyway, it makes no difference which way you do it.
But if you are completely overhauling and not just editing, you might find it easier to unpublish first. This allows you to save changes to finish off later, without leaving your hubs looking half-finished. Either way, it doesn't much matter.
Thank you IzzyM.....I think I'll have to see how much tweaking they need and decide from there then....My typing skills leave alot to be desired, so it would probably be easier for me if I unpublish the one I'm working on.
It was just a thought.
I agree with IzzyM: I have found that by editing: change the title for example, maybe add a video to an old Hub, add a map maybe, add some more keywords based on a keyword search, just anything I think that would help that I will start to get some traffic. So, I think it works. I don't unpublish, I just edit.
I forgot to mention, now that HP has added the new feature of giving us the date that something was changed on the Hub, you don't have to remember which Hub you have worked on and edited. If you haven't noticed this new feature, it's shows on "changed" on your account page for that Hub.
Thank you for pointing that out, knowing when I edited a hub will be handy as knowing me I would end up editing the same hub over again!!....
I'm feeling abit more clued up about keyword searching now than I did when I started, so plan to work on that side of my hubs.

Blergh, so I'm going back to my original hubs that are usually a single picture with a block of text and editing them so that they are prettier, longer, and hopefully seen as more Hubpage's friendly.It just seems like it takes forever to revamp them. Does anyone have any tricks to help the process...

Long, long ago, it was easy to write a hub. This is what I did:Spent two days producing 1500 words or so. Got the page about 80 percent right. Published it.After a couple of weeks, if the visitors started coming from the search engines, I would put in a few more hours editing and improving. The...

So, I have finally finished my goal of writing 100 hubs but I have not published them yet as I'm practically frightened of what HP will do with them. I feel like I have been "flagged" meaning I just imagine the HP team seeing my new hub and going "oh that trouble maker again.. go on...

Oops! That title is supposed to say "Impact of Massive Hub Editing"!I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has totally rewritten a Hub that ranked well and was getting a fair amount of traffic (say, 20-50 visits per day).Also, anyone who has experimented with deleting a significant...

Do you work on your "unfeatured" hubs to improve them? Or let them stay unfeatured?On your hub list, when you see the message "This hub is not featured because it doesn't receive sufficient engagement" next to one of your hubs, are you likely to revamp the hub to try to get it...

So, I was picked to have someone take a look at my hubs to see if they could use some improvement and the editor decides to pick my highest earning, most viewed hub to edit??? Why would she do that when there are obviously others that could use improvement.What is your experience with Hub Pro?
