Hello Fellow Hubbers,
My question is not how do I change the title after a hub has been published.
My question is how will this effect links that I have already sent out. Will the links automatically be updated when I change the title or will they no longer work?
Can anyone help me out on this one? I have been searching and searching. Can't seem to find the answer anywhere.
I am having second thoughts after I published my last hub.
Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Even if you change the title of your hub, the URL will remain the same, so all the links you have already posted/emailed will still work.
I've changed a title of a still unpublished hub - can I change the URL as well?
I am still new and learning but the only way I know how is to start a new hub and copy everything over and then delete the original.
The only thing you can do with the URL is put a tracker in place.
This won't actually change the URL for the Hub, because the URL's are locked into what has already been named.
No way! It's not published but I've really done a ton of work on it already. If it's not yet published, I'd think that the URL would not be set in stone.
You would have to start a new hub with a different URL, copy all of your work over to the new one, and delete the other unpublished hub.
The URL is "set in stone" the moment you hit "Continue" at the bottom of the Create a Hub page. It's best to think about the URL and what it should be before starting. It is no problem for the URL to be shorter and more generic than the title.
Cagskill and Jeffrey, thank you so much for explaining that. Been here for a year and still don't know the half of it.
I've changed many titles after re-thinking.
As others have said, URLs are forever. If they weren't-- any backlinks you already have would be lost.
There's no problem with the two not matching up.

After changing the title of the hub, the URL remains the same. Does it affect the existing traffic or the position on Google ? How often the title could be changed ? Is it advisable or not ?

I know we can completely change our hub titles but I wondered if the first title we used is still ours or any there after for that matter even though we changed it?

Can I change the title of my hub as I think it would be better with a different title but still including the existing words? If so, how do I change it as I don't see an option to save it?Thanks.
