I started writing a new hub and made a mistake in the url title. It is called "Letting Go Of Your Grown Daughter" It should be "Letting Go Of Your Growing Daughter" So, when you think about it sounds like I am talking about a full grown adult and not my teenage daughter. Any thoughts? Will I get a penalty for this?
edit your hub title and change the error, it wont change the url, but it will use the keywords that people use to search for the information you are providing.
the other option is to delete that hub all together and start again in a new hub.....jimmy
The URL shouldn't affect your score. Same for SEO traffic. I think someone said that a URL mispelling can affect traffic, but with the myriad of word spellings, I don't see how search engines would be able to tell whether you spelled it that way on purpose or not.
will hubpages penalize me though if the title suggests adults when I am writing about teenagers?
Hubpages definitely will not penalize you. But did you ask yourself for what keyword you want to rank in search engines?
Make sure it is correct in the page description "summary" text, too.

Hi there, I'd been on Hubpages for 6 months now but probably been active for only 2 or 3 weeks. At the moment, I have 7 hubs and only 1 have breached the 80 mark (75-85). Most are in the 70s. 1-2 will drop down to 60s...

I'm here nearly three months. I have published 11 hubs. All of my hubs have score over 80 and just one have 78. This is a hub about my country, Serbia. I did a lot of research and spent over a week to write this...
