How do you figure out what the URL for your Hub is so that others can search for it on Google and find it?

You won't need to know your Hub's URL to find it via Google - usually typing in the title itself will do the trick. (The hard part is getting your Hub to show up higher than the other thousands of Web pages on the same topic!)
However, if you want the URL to share directly with friends, you can simply copy it from the address bar of your browser when viewing the Hub. It will start with:
You can also click the "Share It!" button at the bottom of your Hub, and then click the Email to Friends link
Curt, please tell me you don't come to hubpages.com by typing in hubpages.com at google and doing a search and then clicking on the first result.
People search that way all the time. I've actually seen people I know do it. My sister does it, my ex-boss does it. I tell them they can just put that in the title bar, but nope. Sometimes info just refuses to stick

When I first made my hub public I saw a page where hubpages gave me the short url version for my hub. However I didn't copy it and I'm not seeing that page again. I was wondering where can I get it again?

There seems to be a bit of confusion as to the most effective URL naming protocol and to make matters a little more complicated, I strongly belief that the hub claiming system that is in place is making things a...
