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.

41 hubs and 41 views per day? WTF?! What did I do to deserve this?I don't get it. Traffic has been dropping steadily now and I even added half a dozen more hubs. This is getting ridiculous. ...

Last night I went in an edited a capsule so that it would be full width, which is what HP wants everyone to do. The article I edited has been published and featured since 2012. When I went in and edited, however, the...
