Dear hubbers, I have recently tuned the title of one of my earlier published hubs, using Title Tuner. Instantly the name is changed in my hubpage, however while doing a sample search, I still get the old hub title, why is it so? How can I make the new title appear in search engine searches? can anyone guide me?
The search engines don't yet know that you've changed your title. They'll find out next time they crawl your site and see that you've changed the title.. They will then update their cache and the new title will appear in their search results.
From what I understand the link to that Hub will stay what it was originally titled as and there is no way to change it.
This is because Google bots haven't yet crawled your page since the change was made. In other words, the Google index still has information from your old page. How long has it been since you made the title change? I am not an expert but perhaps you could do some more changes to the pages like adding pictures, videos etc. or tweak the text of the first couple of lines of the hub to make the bots crawl your page again.
Totally agree with @Keralascan, Google has not crawled your page.
I made a sample search through google, to find out if the title is changed. Google refers my hub with the old title, but on navigation I reach my hub which is having new title. Amazingly when I check the hub link, I find that still my hub link is having the old title in it. Anyway to change the hub link with new title ?

I hope this is in the right forum. I am trying to figure out what went wrong with my hub. The second day I was on the first page of google. I realized that I hadn't put the right title, I meant to change it...

I know that once you publish a hub you shouldn't change the title because it affects . . . well I don't fully understand it, but I know it's not a good idea, especially established hubs. However, if I did change a title...
