I've recently changed the title of a hub, and I noticed that it still has the old title when it comes up on Google search. Will Google update the title of my hub in future search results to match the new title of the same hub?
Google will change to the new title but not immediately - in about two to three months, Google spiders will visit the entire hub pages and during that time they will note all changes and count all the links, and then using an approximation equation, they compute the corresponding Page Rank for each an every page in the entire world wide web. If the two - three months interval is ending soon, then you can see the new title within days.
Perhaps you can try pinging which follows the same principle of social bookmarking. Autopinger and Pingomatic are two sites that ping - which is ending your hub link to many social bookmarking and blog directory websites all at once. From there hopefully Google can pick on it as a new hub and will quickly spreads the word your hub is new and out.
Eventually sounds pretty far off. Hehe. But it's better than "no", I guess. Thanks, Misha.
LOL Susan, it is not in the range of months as ngureco suggests. With Hubpages it happens much faster. In a week or so you should be able to see the changes, may be even faster
I also changed one title before one week and still google shows the old one.
Hi, ngureco. Unfortunately, the second paragraph of your reply went right past my head. Hehe. But I'm glad that the title of my hub will be updated in a few days. Thanks.
Just go to http://autopinger.com and add your url of your hub, then press submit and the computer will do the rest.
A good information,but i want to know if it couldbe helpful if a hub is pinged after publishing.Thanks if anyone could reply.
I am of the opinion your question: Is it helpful if a hub is pinged after it has been published? can generate very helpful answers. I am sending it out there to the entire hubpages community as a request hoping somebody will post a hub on it.
It actually didn't take long. The title got updated on its own a couple of days after I started this topic. But then it wasn't on the fifth page anymore. I had to dig deep to find it. Hmm... maybe it was a bad move to change the hub's title?

After publishing a Hub, do you ever change the title? I have used title tuner to improve a Hub title, but I have never changed the title completely.

I know that once you publish a hub you shouldn't change the title because it affects . . . well I don't fully understand it, but I know it's not a good idea, especially established hubs. However, if I did change a title...

I seem to be having some real trouble with getting some hubs indexed, and don't understand why. Out of 75 hubs, 13 are now not indexed, dating back to 5-24. I realize that hubs will index and de-index, but...

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?

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here...

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....
