The URL should contain some of your keywords, as should the title, but the title is what people will read first, and it must grab their attention.
I have always wondered the same thing, since I keep changing my titles when I stop getting readers. I don't really know the answer but I will follow this question to read other answers. Thanks for asking the question, Rajan.
Definitely a great title is best because you have the option to change it to accommodate the way people search for your article. You cannot change the url. Since you can't change it, I suppose it needs to be a good match to the content in case people see the url first.
From everything I've read about SEO (search engine optimization), both the URL and title are important. I believe this is why the URL automatically picks up the title when we create a new hub. If your hub is no longer attracting readers and you change the title, your URL stays the same. This is unfortunate in a way, but is good if you have links back to that particular hub. You don't want your reader ending up with a 404 error page.
I believe a great title is more important. When my traffic slows down on a Hub, I change the Title and it will pick up.
Titles can be changed but URL cannot. Once your article is published online, you have a permanent URL. On the other hand, if a certain title does not work, you can always change it. Besides, who in the online world is going to remember the URL. It is the title that gets clicks.

After changing the title of the hub, the URL remains the same. Does it affect the existing traffic or the position on Google ? How often the title could be changed ? Is it advisable or not ?
