When I start a new Hub, I pick a title and sometimes change this before really publishing my Hub.
After publishing I sometimes want to copy and paste my Hublink into a message and found out it shows up with the URL and the first title I chose.
Can I change the URL and how?
No, the url is the only thing you can't change. You can abandon it and start a new more suitable one though.
That might show up as duplicate.. you may have to wait until the cached copy has been totally wiped out.. if it is a hub that is yet to be published at least until the hub as been deleted from the system.. may be wait for 48 hours before pasting it into the new URL.
If you're creating a link to your hub, the text shown in the link (the 'anchor text') can be anything you want..it doesn't have to be the URL itself.
In a Hubpages text capsule..when you come to the part where you want a link to your hub (with the changed title), type the new title in your text. Then highlight that part, and click the button on the editor's toolbar that looks like a small chain-link. A new window comes up where you can paste the URL in. Now the link that people see is your new title, but the underlying URL is the original.
Outside of Hubpages, this method requires a bit of HTML code, which is a little difficult to show in this comment section, since it may be interpreted as an actual link.

After changing the title of the hub, the URL remains the same. Does it affect the existing traffic or the position on Google ? How often the title could be changed ? Is it advisable or not ?

Really cool to see that my hub, <link snipped>, was just picked as Editor's Choice. Can anyone tell me what it means, and maybe how to capitalize on or leverage this bump?Thanks!

I started to draft a new hub and decided to change the title. Unfortunately the hub URL still has the original title in it. Is it possible to get the URL changed to match the revised title?
