Question about changing the title of my Hub Pages article

    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 by searching on the title. I know Hub Pages makes the article searchable by the title but I suspect it is based on the old title.
    Is there any way I can get the article changed so the search criteria is matching the title?

    Should I delete the original article and repost it with the new title?

      No worries.  While the URL stays the same, it is the new title that will show up in search; the URL will still take readers to the same Hub, because that is embedded, and it is unrelated to the displayed title, which is treated more like text in the rest of the article.
      I've changed titles several times on some of my hubs. 
      (That's the best I can explain it--I know it doesn't matter to the search results, but I'm not a techie, and don't have enough understanding of the why and how behind the scenes.  All I need to know is that it works.  LOL)

    Several of mine have different titles. Are you saying they all have to be reposted? What happens if you match the titles?
