If you have a hub that is one of your better performers, but has a title that isn't so great, do you go ahead and change the title or do you leave it alone?
How do you know it's not so great? Maybe that is how the readers are finding your hub. I would look at the search terms if they are available to see how your readers find the hub. You may be able to fine tune or change it to make it even more searchable, but you do want to make sure that you don't take away the key words that are being used.
Change it that way you get the best of both worlds, you get search for both titles that way.....jimmy
i have a hub that gives good traffic everyday but the title isn't sound appealing to readers. I didn't change the hub title nor add anything to it. Just leave it. Unless one day it becomes unfeatured, then i will change the title.
If the "better" title is a good one go ahead and change it. If, however, it may hurt your hub's popularity, leave well enough alone. As peachpurple said, if it harms your hub down the line, then change it.
