Hi everyone. I'm new to Hubpages. Would anyone know if we are allowed to change our url for our hub? I had to submit my hub a second time and when I did I changed the title of my hub without changing the url. I looked under faq, just couldn't find the answer. Thanks for responding
No. The URL is the one thing you can't change - because if you change it, it would break any backlinks etc connected to the page.
If you want to change it, you'll need to delete that hub and copy all your content into a new hub.
I have had several hubs that I have changed the title on to improve the views of the hub. So far I have not had a decline in views for doing so. I have been told and read that Google does not focus on the URL at all, or is so, very little. They are looking for keywords in the title and the hub for the ranking of the article.

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 am aware that this cannot not be directly changed but would unpublishing, copying, and republishing the hub be a LEGIT way to do this? I just published the hub and realized there is one word that is in the link I wish to change. If theres no way, I'll live with it but...
