Is it wise to edit an old hub title?
I want to change some of my already published hub titles to better reflect content. Is this a good or not so good thing in regard to search engines?
I do that sometimes if I don't feel the current title is working. The URL is cast in stone but titles can always be changed.
I have found it to be a good exercise which teaches you about what works and what doesn't. The title changes do work most of the time. You have to play with a title to hit the right keywords which will increase hub score and search results. The easier way is to use the Google keyword tools which I don't use but have in the past before they changed it.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If your hub is doing well, then leave it alone. If the hub isn't doing well, then you may want to pick a more search friendly title.
If you feel it would be to your advantage to change it then yes. I change titles on hubs if my SEO work says that I should, or I made a mistake in the first place.

I know we can completely change our hub titles but I wondered if the first title we used is still ours or any there after for that matter even though we changed it?

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...
