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.

I've heard to disregard that but I'm still a little curious. Honestly I don't know how the score is even decided but those of you that have a lot of followers or have been able to make money, what is your average score...

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...
