Do you ever go back and edit your old hubs? Why or why not?
Yes. I do edit. Some have information that needs to be updated or corrected. Others, I review to see if I missed any grammar errors or if something could be better written. I also check photos, captions, and sources. I will replace a picture if I find something more appropriate.
Thank you leroy64 for your input. As I learn more about SEO or find what Google prefers in its latest algorithm, or as HubPages changes its format, sometimes another tweak or two is necessary.
Yes. Most often it's to update information, add a new photo or in response to a broken link that I need to delete.
Yes. Just like the others said, to update, put a new photo, etc.
Yes I do. Especially the first ones that I did. I do this because I've learned a lot from other hubbers about writing on-line and presentation and so I update hubs that I think need this input. I also edit hubs in case any information needs to be updated or revised.
I feel like I am constantly learning and having to revise something. Now It seems now with Google liking fresher content, I revise more often than I did before.
I have been editing my old hubs as well - to add back links, and tweaking the grammar and readability of the hubs.
I hadn't thought about updating a photo, but I will be on the look out for better photos to add to the hubs.

How often do you edit/update your old Hubs, and does it help?They always recommend to update your Hubs every now and then to keep the content fresh and current. Do you do this? and if so, do you see results (ie., rise in views, comments, etc?)Normally I don't update as often as I should, but I'm...

As I plow through the lenses to become hubs, two of them I edited do not show the change date of the edit although the updates are visible. Since I am using the date to keep track of the edited lenses, I keep re-editing them but the original date never changes. Is this an issue on HubPages or a...

Can veteran hubbers who are getting huge influx of external traffic from search engine hits suggest ways to get high searches for their hubs and more traffic? Also, please write how, how often and whether the updated hub should be shared again with followers or on the social networking sites on...

Hi fellow hubbers! I’m wanting to see what you all do in this case. I’m wanting to improve some of my articles that I have already written. Do you find that it helps their score and traffic when you do edit them? Does it really help or do you think it’s just best sometimes to start over completely...
