Hub titles

    This weekend I wanted to start writing again. I kept thinking of titles for my new hub. Every title I thought of a red message came up that is was already taken. I kept typing in a title and again the same message. I got so frustrated I gave up.

    How is this possible that every title is taken? How long does a hub stay in traffic that warrants the ownership of that title?
    I just found this to be so frustrating and when I first joined hub pages in 2013 I never encountered this problem. So much has changed since 2013.

    Any advice or comments on this is appreciated.

    Thanks.

      Hi Lisa,

      You can use the same title as existing Hubs. Only the URL can not be the same.

        Oops, that's what I meant.

        Once the URL is successfully created, one can indeed change the title to whatever they want.

    Use the Google search auto-completion feature to come up with more ideas, both top and bottom of page.

    Worst case scenario, you can tack on an "a", "the", etc. to the title.
