A Hubber detailed out in the comments that the URL is cast in stone and this got me to wondering. I wish to revamp/upgrade some of the work I have done but to copy and past takes time. If I could copy the hub to a new url and start a fresh, it would help me to revamp these hubs and put in place better key words in the url and maintain some of my content to give me a leg up on improving this article.
What are your thoughts? If this tool were made available, would you be more likely to edit and republish a hub that is not currently featured? Would you take the time for the key terms and upgrade the url and the title?
URLs aren't a big deal in the bigger scheme. Many of my titles and URLs are different.
Changing them means losing backlinks, age etc though, unless a proper permanent backlink is put in place.
If you want to upgrade/revamp, nothing's stopping you but you.
It might come as a surprise to you that some Hub authors always intentionally make their URLs and titles different right from the get-go.
Ooooh - that's a neat hint, relache... something to do with people finding the url title plus other keywords in article title?
Yes, exactly. If you have several keywords connected to your topic, using some in your URL and some in your title is a clever way of covering all bases.

I've noticed that Hubpages doesn't update the Url to my articles after I've made a title change. Does this cause problems with google or search results or possibly lower ranking because title and url don't match?
