I am trying to get some back links going, but I tend to use long titles for my hubs, which translates to long URLs. Isn't there a short-version URL for each hub? I'm pretty sure I've seen those when I've been in the process of publishing, but now I can't find them.
Any help will be appreciated.
There are two places I know of to get short versions:
1. Visit the hub in normal mode and click 'stats' then go over to 'hub metrics' and it will be at the bottom.
2. Click share at the bottom of the hub and click 'tweetthis' and you'll get taken to a twitter page with the short URL.
URL shortening schemes tend to use 301 redirects, so while you are going to get the benefit of a link, its less effective than using the full url. I would advise you to use the natural URL whenever possible.
i make hub and ping it from ping.fm where i have created a network, so whenever i post there it automatically make it short url using 301 redirects

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?

Sometimes I go and check if someone has already claimed the URL for a hub that I've got half an idea to develop. If I get a "Sorry that hub does not exist." WOO HOO! I can go and claim it.But sometimes I get a...

If I revise my hub, how do I change the URL so it matches the title?
