Do you have to pay to have somebody from hubpages go through your URL's and improve them. I would like to improve my traffic and think this is holding me back.
You have the option to change and customize your URL when you first start an article, but once a URL is created, it is permanent. Should you wish to change your URL, you will need to create a new article with the desired wording and copy/paste your article's content to the new one, but be aware that any ranking the old URL may have achieved with Google will be lost when you create the new one.
Thank you Christy. I managed to remove the http:// just now, thank goodness, as it was not suppose to have been there in the first place. Guess I did something wrong. Your quick response is appreciated.
I did not change anything in the actual title.
I'm not sure what you're changing, Anita - because as Christy says, it's impossible to change the URL after you've created your Hub. Impossible.
You CAN change your titles, and that's allowed and even encouraged, if you can think up a better one.
When you create a Hub, the URL is automatically created for you BUT you can change it at that point, so that's the time to think about it. Once the Hub is created, it's too late, but it's not a tragedy. The title is far, far more important to get right than the URL.
At the end of the day the most important thing is the content of the article. The URL is insignificant compared to that.

So...if I wanted to change the URL of a published article...is that impossible? Or can mods/editors do that? Can I do it? I changed my keywords that I wanted to target as I wrote the article and would like to add those to the URL. Thoughts?

SEO is a hard science.and yet we are not able to update/change/amend our url readily, Yes, we can re-write, re-create but wouldn't it be nice to write a hub, then do the SEO and amend the url?I am not good with SEO and writer's block hits me when I start looking at the SEO. I don't write for money,...

I just published a new article called "Interesting Guns in Gaming". Unfortunately, the web address for this article used the original name of the article "Top Three Guns in Gaming". Do I have to do something before publishing?
