I noticed that when my latest recipe, "Black Bean & Mango Salad (Vegan)", is pinned on Pinterest, the bold title assigned to it is "Black Bean & Mango Salsa", but the text that appears in the description field is "Black Bean & Mango Salad (Vegan)".
Not a big deal, but I'd prefer that whatever voodoo that's pulling information to create those titles for Pinterest actually use the real title of the hub.
We make the information available to social network sites and search engines, but it is up to them to determine how it is displayed.
You can check the format for your Hub using this page.
Here is the results link:

It shows this is the title we are passing "Black Bean & Mango Salad (Vegan)"
If the title you see on Pinterest is an old title that you have since updated, then they may check and update the title in the future as they seem to cache the state of the link when it was first shared.
I just repinned it, and it's still displaying as Salsa rather than Salad. So far, it's the only thing I've pinned from HubPages to Pinterest that isn't displaying the correct title.

Just wondering what works better - long or short hub titles? And why?Thanks!

The first occurred on 4/19. That hub's traffic has already started its crash and burn.The second occurred on 4/21. I'm reasonably certain the traffic crash and burn is starting there as well.I'll give it a week. If things aren't back to normal by then, I'm putting the keywords back. Better to have...

If you go back and update an article that is not getting many views, do you change the title? If so, does this change the URL, and basically make it a new article in the eyes of search engines?
