How often do you renew your listings?

If a listing is not near expiring do you renew the listing to get more exposure and how often do you renew?

Now that searches are organized by relevancy, renewing your listings for exposure isn't really a good option to get exposure.. Only if the searcher changed to "recently listed" will the results show that way. I am so glad because constantly renewing to get at the top of the search was costly and often not worth it.

I just renew when the listing runs out or I sell it.
I do if I don't have something new to list. I try to renew or relist something about four times a week.
I only renew when a listing is near or has expired.
I try not to renew very often, after all it's an additional $0.20 per renew. But if I haven't had any views in a day or two I usually renew one of my more popular products to get people coming back and at least looking.

i have so many items at this point, that i need to renew about three a day to prevent items all expiring in huge clumps.
I renew 3 or 4 listings each day if I have nothing new to list.
I think it helps.
I only renew now when items are about to expire, really no reason to do it otherwise. I also "renew sold" items right away is I can duplicate it so it holds all rankings with SEO, views and hearts.
I think renewing is a big part of Relevancy.
Not very often. Maybe once a month or every 2 weeks & of course, whenever an item has been sold, it is immediately relisted if it's still going.
