I have edited the title of several of my hubs. Which of the titles will the search engine crawls?
Will it be the original title before the edit was made or the new title after editing? I noticed that deleted original titles are not "totally erased". They surfaced and are used in the URL when doing tracking. Kindly explain in simple English.
Google keeps a copy (kind of like a photo) of your page in the "cache". Each time it crawls your page it takes a new "photo".
Currently Google may not have crawled your page again, so the most recent "photo" it has of your page contains the page before the edit. However when Google crawls your page again it will take an updated "photo" which will have the new edits included.
The URL of the hub is the only part that can never be changed - even if you change the title the URL will stay the same, so you don't lose any links you've made to that page.

I saw a dramatic traffic drop today and went to notice that over 100 of my hubs are not featured. While I can understand some of my older ones published over 4 years ago were not that great, some of them were published...
