I changed my bio on one hub to accommodate that one hub, but now that bio appears on all of my hubs. Is there a way to restore my original bio on all of the other hubs without having to do it one at a time?
Hey Bob, If this were me I would go back to the latest hub, change the bio back to the way it was, and then hit "done editing". That is going to return all of the other articles to your old bio.
Then open up your new article again, click on the bio category "new", and write a new bio. That new bio will not change your old bios on the other hubs.
Someone else probably has a quicker way to do this, but the way I suggest will work.
Thanks, Doc, I changed the bio on the first article on my "Articles" page, but that didn't do the trick. Maybe I have to change the most recent one. I'll give that a try.
That link that theraggededge added also includes a button to "Add bio". I have about half a dozen to choose from, depending on the subject of the article, so maybe you can go there and add some more. (I just looked at your coyote article on PetHelpful. It mentions being the father of GenXers, which is really not what your readers are interested in.)
Yeah, that Gen-Xers bio is the one that caused the problem. I had written a humorous account of the "horrendous" conditions Gen-Xers were raised under (in comparison to today's standards) and realized the pet bio wasn't appropriate. So I changed it for that one hub, not realizing it would change all of the bios. Now that I know how the whole thing works, I can avoid that in the future. I'll bet your own children were raised under the same horrendous conditions mine were.
I still wonder how I made it to this age since I grew up with exposed wires, kitchen cabinets with no child-safety-tabs, and a 300 pound TV that leaned over whenever you got up to change the channel.
Congratulations, Doc, on being a Featured Author on the PetHelpful home page. I just saw that when I logged out. Either that's a new "attaboy" or I just didn't notice it before. You're on a roll!
By the way, you can get to that link via your stats page https://hubpages.com/my/hubs/stats
It's under the 'About the author' tab.

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 changed the title of my Hub Pages article after it was published. Now the url for the article contains the old title which does not match the new title. I'm wondering if people will have difficulty finding my article by searching on the title. I know Hub Pages makes the article searchable by the...

Over the past year, I've changed a few hub titles to give them better keywords and get them further up on Google. However, there have been a couple of hubs that just seemed to get "lost" when I do this. For example, I wrote a hub about two weeks ago and it was on Google for a few hours...

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?

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?

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?...
