I changed the titles on a couple of my hubs a while ago (and changed the tags to match the new titles), totally forgetting that the permalinks would still only contain the original titles.
Besides my having to remember that some of my hubs have different permalinks than their titles, would there be any other reason to change the titles back to the originals, so that they match the permalinks (e.g. would it help in any of my ratings)?
Do you mean make sure that the new titles and the original titles relate to each other?
Or do you mean make sure the new titles relate to the hubs?
Of course when you begin a hub the URL is going to relate to the text on the hub right? When you update your hub, see to it that the new Title of the hub relates to the text too.
Say for example your hub "Corruption In The Locksmith Industry" you could change it to "Why is the Locksmith Industry Corrupt" or something on those lines. Note: I didn't read the hub.
Oh yeah, no problem...I changed the titles in the first place because I thought the new titles better related to the text.
I got it.

I changed the title of my Hub Pages article after it was published. Now the url for the article contains the old title which does not match the new title. I'm wondering if people will have difficulty finding my article...
