How to edit the title in the hub's URL with the Title Tuner?
I used the Title Tuner to edit the Topic of one of my hubs, however the title shown in the hub's URL in the address bar is still the previous one. How to edit this?
You cannot change a hub's url. Once you choose a url, you're stuck with it.
you can not change the url of your hub after once you publish it. You can change the title with the help of title tuner. Actually, title tuner helps you to optimize your title according to the search query of people in search engines.

The URL for an article is set permanently when you set the title the first time as mebel says. This is because you might get links to the URL, Google will index it, etc
If the URL were to be editable, Hubpages would need to set up 301 redirects for each change so that the old URL redirected in a correct manner that passed pagerank to the new URL. Logistically this would be a nightmare, especially if you can keep editing the URL. Hence, they make the URL permanent.
It's no great loss. While domain name is considered to have a role in SEO, filenames (the URL) aren't these days.
Ditto to pretty much everything everyone else has said. But, if you are still unhappy with your URL, delete the hub and repost it under the URL of your choosing.

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?

When you change your hub-title does hubpages change the url?I have changed a couple of my hub-titles and when it changes the previous title remains in the url. Do I have to change the url myself or does it eventually change on its own? Thanks.
