I remember this was asked some time ago but I can't find the discussion.
Is it possible to change our sub-domain username ie. from luisegonzalez.hubpages.com to XYZ.hubpages.com and will this be reflected in search engines? In other words, will the name change show in search engines results instead of our old username.
No. I would change mine if I could. You need to start an entire new account to do it.
You have never been able to change your username on HubPages. I know of two cases where it was allowed, in very special circumstances, but that was a long time ago.
I can't see why you'd want to change it - the URL's of all your Hubs would change so they'd lose all their rank in the search engines.
You cannot change your user name but you can open a second acct. and choose another name. Go to the following link: http://hubpages.com/faq/
In the contens on the right, click on "Account Administration - Publishing" and scan down to number 5.
I've thought about changing mine to Spunky The Wonder Hubber. But I haven't made a final decision yet.
Now that's an interesting statement... Which do you think are mine, pray tell.

Is there any way I can change my User name without starting over with a new account? I have Fibromyalgia and it takes me a long time to write, so I don't want to lose my articles by closing this account. Freefogging is a name that I put in not knowing it would be the name that showed up...

Ok, so since the Penguin update I have sat here listening to lots of Hubbers complain of loss of traffic. Now we're not talking a little fluctuation in numbers, we are talking 80% gone overnight! For people who use Hubpages as a form of income, this is a serious issue. Up until...
