    Yesterday, I created a hub on a specific topic and I only wrote in the title and put it in it's category. I got tired and saved it as it was. I planned to start back on it today.
    Today I changed the title (and topic) of my hub to a completely new subject and re-categorized it. The URL is now the same as my previous title, which is no where near related to the article. Is there any way I can change this?

      You can't change the URL. Just delete the hub and republish it under a new URL.

      You can't change the URL once the hub has been created. As Chasmac said, since you have not published the hub yet, delete that one and start a new one with the URL you want.

      can someone correct me if I am wrong, but the url is also the metatag, and correct...can't be changed once assigned.  I've also read that these meta tags don't really affect traffic as long as the title is search friendly, and titles can be modified at anytime, regardless of url/metatags.

        Your URL is not your meta tag. The meta tags are built into the HTML of the webpage which you are not responsible for. Whereas, your meta description tag is your summary.

        Your titles can be modified at anytime, however the URL is permanent unless you delete the entire page.
