So I decided to change a couple of titles of my hubs, and did so. Made some other improvements. I notice that after the change, that the url link still has the wording of the old title in it. Is this a concern? Is there something else I should be doing for the two to be rectified? I'm learning all kinds of stuff about this, so any light anyone could shed is mucho appreciated.
When you first create a Hub, it is pointed out to you that Hub URLs can never be changed.
That explains it. I don't remember reading. Guess I should slow down. Thanks.
When starting a new hub you probably don't click in field 2 to change the URL that is suggested, but it can be.
When you click in there it says this on the side: "Choose carefully, you will not be able to change the address later"
As you've discovered, titles can be changed.
My titles and URLs, while related, are often different.

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 originally began the hub as a poem only -- then I got so involved in research of the place where I wrote the poem that I changed the title to an Educational/historical site hub. However, I had saved the hub unpublished before I changed the title and category. Now the link is still the poem title...

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...
