Misspelled word in URL. Do I need to unpublish and republish?

    New problem and I don't see any other way. It won't index correctly, right?

    URLs on published Hubs are set and cannot be edited.  So, either you can leave it as is, or you have to delete it and create a new Hub with the new URL.

      Thanks. I fixed it before publication, but I know it doesn't matter, right?

    Although it's helpful to have keywords in the URL, it's not the end of the world. Keywords in the title are just as useful and titles CAN be changed later. Anyway, you solved your dilemma since you didn't publish yet, so it's a mute point now. Just wanted to add that info, which I think you knew already anyway, but newbies reading this might have been wondering about.

      I fixed it before publication, but my keyword is still misspelled. It is now published with the misspelled word. I left the l out of relationship.It won't get any traffic, so I need to do it over. I guess it is a good learning experience. I can spell better than I can type.

        You never know. Sometimes these kind of mistakes can actually help you. If leaving the L out of relationship is a common misspelling, then when people search for "reationship" they might find your hub. You've got it spelled right in the title and that helps. I think Google puts about the same weight (more or less) on the title as they do with the URL.
