Here's a question:
I understand that even if you change the title of an article, the URL does not change from its original form.
So, if, for example, you had a title of "How Honeybees Are Important," ...that would appear as, "hubber name.howhoneybeesareimportant. HubPages. com"
(spaces added to prevent making a link to a non-existent article)
And...suppose you changed the title to "Why are Honey Bees Important?"
Which would Google see and present?? (or both??)
Google sees and presents the title and URLs as they exist. There may be some delay at first once a change is made to a Hub title until the hub is crawled again, but the new title and the original URL are what will wind up in the Google index.
Many hubbers purposely have a different URL and title to cover more keywords.
"Why Honeybees Protect The Environment"
I believe that a title is 70% of SEO.
Also keep in mind that most people read the title of the articles in Google not the url. It's always good to have a related url to the title though, so with your honeybees example it would still be related. Not related is not good for SEO.

While I opted out of the Hub Pro program, it would be irrelevant, anyway, since they are only focusing on already well-trafficked hubs.I could, however, use some advice on what I need to fix on this one, which has...
