    The title of a hub of mine was changed a few days back. But its URL remains unchanged and thus appears to be some other hub's URL. The URL must be changed to make it match the hub it is linked with. I do not know how to attain this goal. Please help me do it.

      You cannot change it once it has been published. But - the title is far more important.

      You can't change the url of your hub. As Sanjay has listed, you may save the contents and transfer it to a new hub.

      Remember that if you delete a hub you also delete any views that are with it.

    It is not possible to change the URL. Rather save the contents, delete the old hub, start a new hub of same title and URL of your choice. Or it is better to leave the hub as it is. In search engine the title matters the most not the URL.

      Thank you. Yours seems to be the best answer.

    Since the URL cannot be changed, it is better to have a double check of it including spellings at the beginning of the Hub. Best way is to spend a little more time at that stage.

    Use a good title for those searching on the search engines.  Who looks for a URL?
