So I decided to change a couple of titles of my hubs, and did so. Made some other improvements. I notice that after the change, that the url link still has the wording of the old title in it. Is this a concern? Is there something else I should be doing for the two to be rectified? I'm learning all kinds of stuff about this, so any light anyone could shed is mucho appreciated.
When you first create a Hub, it is pointed out to you that Hub URLs can never be changed.
That explains it. I don't remember reading. Guess I should slow down. Thanks.
When starting a new hub you probably don't click in field 2 to change the URL that is suggested, but it can be.
When you click in there it says this on the side: "Choose carefully, you will not be able to change the address later"
As you've discovered, titles can be changed.
My titles and URLs, while related, are often different.
