I have a new hub all ready to go, but I couldn't decide on a title until the end so I just gave it a general placeholder. Literally, it is called "Creative Writing-Short Stories Hub Placeholder". Clearly I don't want that to be the title of my article. At the very least, my Hub no longer applied just to short stories. At worst, it's a horrible title. I changed the title and saw that the URL still reflected the placeholder title. It seems like there has to be a way to get the URL to reflect the new title without cutting and pasting the entire thing into a brand new, appropriately titled Hub, right? If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know! Thanks!
Oh no, from my understanding, Zen Mistress, once you click on "continue" at the bottom of the opening page to begin your hub, the URL is permanent. I just recently found this out after realizing my URL was bad on a hub. There is a way like deleting and starting over but I'm not sure.
I ve tried to change URL but no luck. I think Hubpages should include that. I started writting a hub, inserted images and links an a large map with locations. No way I will do this again, so the URL stayed as it was, but completely off topic.
Ugh! Thanks all for your replies. I had a feeling that was the case, but I figured I should ask. *Sigh*
When you click to start a hub and are on the page where you write the title and select the hub category and format, etc. when you change the title the URL changes with it. Once you hit the continue button to go to the hub creation page the URL is locked and cannot be changed. Before creating a hub it is best to know for sure exactly what you are planning to write about so that even if you alter the title a bit the URL will still stay on topic.

After changing the title of the hub, the URL remains the same. Does it affect the existing traffic or the position on Google ? How often the title could be changed ? Is it advisable or not ?

I wish the url were not cast in stone as soon as the title is typed into the title capsule. Sometimes before I even move on to the next page, I realize I have made a mistake and it is too late to change it. I CAN change...
