Problem with changing title of a hub

    I noticed that if start a hub and then change its name later that the URL name remains the same.  For example, i recently published this hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Insiders-Gu … h-Car-Show which was originally titled The Insiders Guide to the Pebble Beach Car Show.  I changed the name to Car Lover's Weekend - The Monterey Historic Races and Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance but the URL did not change. 

    I am worried this will affect my search traffic.  Any tips, ideas?  I am contemplating deleting this hub and starting a new one with the correct title.

        Tanks jyuva - but i changed the name way before i posted the actual hub. I realize it can not be changed now but if i change the title during the editing process, the URL stays the same

          Once you published the Hub then we can't change the url but title we can change big_smile

    As things are now, the URL is fixed at the time you first create the hub even if you haven't published it yet.  It's a bit of a pain, but you can manually transfer the contents of the hub to a new hub with the URL you want.  However, if the subject hasn't changed radically it may not be worth doing ...

      paul'd know - he runs the place....

      Had noticed that also...once you get to the screen after adding tags and writing your initial headline the url can't be changed - an understandable requirement really...

      cheers
