Is it better to unpublish the hub I want to revise, and then Publish after I am finished, or should I just click edit, revise and then click done editing
Thanks for any and all help
Unpublishing makes your hub loose whatever it has gained in terms of aging. It is an option only if you are planning to get that hub out of the www.seraches for whatever reasons. EDIT, edit as much as you can. Change the title if need be... do not unpublish if you plan to have the hub back.. does not make sense.
It doesn't make the slightest bit of difference if you unpublish for a few days. The only way unpublishing can hurt is if you unpublish long enough for it to disappear from the Google cache, and that can take weeks.
To the OP, I don't unpublish either, but do remember that viewers can see your changes, even if you haven't finished making them, because each capsule auto-saves as you make the changes, even before you are finished and click on 'save'.
Thank you all, that is excellent information, I will be sure to only edit.
Depends on how bad it is! If you aren't getting traffic then you really don't have much to lose either way!
Given that the average searcher seems unaware of what the f--- they were looking for or are unable to read - I could edit my stuff into a random sequence, put a picture of a naked nun on there, type three pages of Swahili, and it would make no difference at all.
I used to be worried that something was half edited. Someone might be looking.
Look. They don't pay to view, most of them don't stay or do anything - I don't think it matters.
Having said that I do believe that quality counts and the customer is king.
Just occasionally the shop is being refitted - so deal with it.
I am picky. I got to about 210 Hubs in less than 7 months and hacked away at the Hubs that I could not stand. If I don't like my articles to the point where I won't work on them, I have no problem getting rid of them. My writing here is not something I'll stay attached to like friends. I can let go. I unpublished the creative writing that I had written when I first started. I had about 27 chapters, but with those gone, I am able to concentrate on what I do have. My focus is on writing articles, now, and they have made a big difference in what I've been earning. I will not publish book reviews or creative writing on my HubPages account. Those did not do well at all.

If you view my hubs, you will see it has been a while since I've been active. I have been so busy with work I simply didn't have time to update anything. Now, I have a bunch not featured (only 7 out of 28 are featured).Only a couple show not featured 'do to quality', the rest are due to lack of...

When I revise or edit a hub, does it show anywhere that I have done this?I have revisited my hubs continuously and have added or reconstructed things here and there. Does that show up anywhere? That it has been changed? and if it doesn't, should it?

How important is it to revise hubs that are no longer featured?I'm noticing some of my featured hubs missing the "H" and no longer featured. These are well written with absolutely no typos (I'm anal about that) and I have followed all the rules. Do you revise these hubs before...

In fact, I wonder. I was a hub which titled "Losing Weight Phases" http://amrelnawawy.hubpages.com/hub/Los … ght-Phasesand it was featured before. But I had a problem with its URL, it wasn't SEO optimized. So, I deleted the old hub and created a new one with the same previous...

I have a few hubs that I wrote when I first started that are pretty poorly written and have very low traffic numbers. Is it better for me to edit and add content and text to the existing hub? Or am I better off deleting the original hub and starting from scratch, even if the topic is...

How can you edit an article while still making it available for people to read?
