I know we can completely change our hub titles but I wondered if the first title we used is still ours or any there after for that matter even though we changed it?
Yeah, i agree that once you changed the hub title, your hub title is free for another writer to use
As a few others have mentioned here, your URL is yours alone and can not be changed or re-used by another Hubber, however, your Hub's title can be changed whenever you want, and you do not have any particular exclusive claim to it. Hope that helps!
Thanks Christy, for confirming that our URL is ours and can not be used by anybody else.
So changing it then does not give us rights to "all" the titles we change to also?
You can change the title of your hub. Once you do this, another hubber can write a new hub with your old topic so far the link (URL) of the person's hub is not same with that of your present link. That is base on my own understanding.
We can change the whole title of a hub but not the URL of our hub. That is what I experienced. Even when I am still writing the summary capsule, the URL gets fixed according to the title I typed previously. If I think of some better title and want to change the URL, it does not allow any change once it gets fixed.
So, when URL is yours, how can anybody use it?
This is purely a guess, but I think that what you are limited to is not actually the title, but the URL. So if you had one title (which was also the URL) and you changed the title, you can't use that URL again for another article. I don't think that they check the actual title.
The URL is carved in stone - the only way to change that is to delete the entire hub, wait a week or so for it to be de-indexed from Google (to avoid being flagged for duplicated content) and then create a new hub. But - you might want to test your proposed new title, which will be the new URL, to make certain it's not already taken on HP.
As for the title, you can change that whenever you want, and as often as you want - but it should reflect the basic content of the original URL. Google still sees the old URL in search engines (that's my understanding), and you don't want the search engines to filter it as being unrelated content.

I know that once you publish a hub you shouldn't change the title because it affects . . . well I don't fully understand it, but I know it's not a good idea, especially established hubs. However, if I did change a title shortly after it was published, would that still not be good for some reason?...

This is actually three questions.1) Is the average of all of the individual HubScores significant in any way? Does that number affect or change anything?2) In discussions of the Suggested Links Tool and HubKarma, I have seen some Hubbers mention that they would like to know if another Hubber...

I respect the work of many hubbers, but at the very top of my list is 'peeples'. I am a great fan of this extraordinary woman and when you go to her profile page you will see why. Peeples is now homeless. Follow this link to her story. http://peeples.hubpages.com/hub/A-Real- … melessness and...

Okay hubbers. I read and read and then I read some more to pick hubs for my blog. Some of you know about the blog I have built for Hubbers. I read a blog, do a quick review on it and then post the Hub to it.Well now I am looking for a different perspective. I am looking for...

Disagreements regarding a hub is expected and normal. Sometimes such disagreements can be quite emotional and intense. However, it is quite declasse to write a hub mentioning a hubber with whom you disagree with in a quite negative light. Has another hubber ever...

For a long time it has puzzled me how one of my hubs keeps doing great, when it shouldn't. You see, I started a hub on one topic and then changed my mind in the middle of it.Now, back then I had no idea you couldn't change the URL later, so I was horrified when I was stuck with a URL that couldn't...
