    Can you change the title on a published Hub? And how  do I do that?

      The title can be changed, but the URL cannot once the Hub has been created.
      There is more information in the FAQ here.

      You can change the title by editing the Hub using the HubTool.

      Copy whole article and paste it in a new one if you want to have your title in the link as well.

          If the Hub has been in existence for a while, don't do that - you will lose any reputation and age the Hub has built up, and readers who liked it won't be able to find it again.

          It is vitally important to have a good title.  It is NICE to have a good URL but it is not critical.  Once upon a time it was but not now.

              Just a note - looking at your Hubs, your URL's are far too long.

              Someone may have told you to jam every possible keyword into both your titles and URL's - it's not necessary. 

              When you start a new Hub, a suggested URL is created as you type the title. It's only suggested, though, and you should change it, especially if you have a long title.  A shorter URL is more desirable. 

              Have you noticed that when you share a long URL somewhere (say on a forum somewhere), the end gets cut off?   A shorter URL is more likely to show in its entirety, so people can read it.  If the most important words are at the end of the URL and they get cut off, that's a problem.

                That makes a whole lot of sense.  Thank You That is probably my issue. I'll try to correct in the future.

                  I find the following tool incredibly helpful for working out good headlines. It keeps them a good length and helps to balance the words. I've had some success using it for my blog and am applying it to Hubpages now. Maybe it will help you (:
