When the title to an article is changed, how can you fix the link address so that it matches?
For e.g. If HP snips a title, the adress in the stays the same.. so if it was 2 Dogs That Barked snipped to Dogs Barking the address would still read http//::2DogsThatBarked
Do you need to email HP?
You cannot change the URL address. That's why it's important to make the address more general, so it still fits well with future title changes.
When you first create a new hub, the very first field (above the title field) is where you can override the URL. But that's your only chance to change it. Once you pass that point, the URL is permanently fixed.
I discuss this in detail in my hub about "12 Overlooked Writing Techniques for Successful Hubs." You can find it from my profile.
I might delete it then and resubmit. Thanks for answering.
If it's an old hub you shouldn't delete it. You'll be starting all over again waiting for Google to rank it. But if you must, first make sure no one plagiarized it. Otherwise you will lose your rights to it and will not be able to republish it. It will be flagged as a duplicate since the stolen copy will be the first. So consider that if you really want to delete it.
Hmmm, I am fairly certain it's not been copied however it was an older article and the URL doesn't even remotely match the title of the article. I had actually had an idea for a story and instead of deleting the idea, simply used the hub to do a new story. I didn't realize back when I started that the hub didn't change along with the URL (rookie error.)
I have just copied everything over and it says that the hub will remain with the option to 'undelete' for 24 hours so I will wait for the nominated time before resubmitting the story so hopefully it wont be classified as plagarizing myself lol.
Ugh so complicated until you learn these little things.

I have finally published a hub that has been deemed unfeatured. I can only direct my attention to a table I inserted which was long when viewed on the mobile platform. Grammar is checked, titles tweaked, content is solid as its in the same vein as my other articles. Do you think this could be it?...

I have an article that an editor has made substantial changes too. Including adding a bio that they wrote themselves. I have not seen an edit this bad in quite some time on one of my articles, and I do not want to go through the whole article and rewrite half of it. I've already spent countless...

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?

The recent Panda update produced a typical change in traffic for HP shown below.I have often wondered why the change is so immediate and consistent. As shown in the image below it would suggest that the change is not the sum of all the changes in quality rating and/or penalties applied to all the...

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?
