    I came up with an idea for a continuing series of Hubs in the same category.  I have two in that category now & here's my question.

    Is it legal/accceptable to delete a Hub, tweak it very little, give it a different title & republish?

    If I go forward with the idea I would like to include a hookline & common title tag for each Hub in this series, which would mean fixing the two already published.

    Thank you.

    Can you not just change the name? I mean I know you would have a differing URL but you are already gaining with the two it would be a shame to have to start that over.

      Did not know I could do that? 

      Is it a simple editing job?

    Yep, just go in to edit mode and change the title and republish.

    I have changed the name on 2 or 3 of my hubs and have also added text, pictures, and video. If I get an idea that I think could make my hub better, I jump right in and change it.

    It is fairly common to add and delete pertinent info to hubs as you learn new things or want to freshen the topic to pull a hub out of the gutter. Adding in a video later or taking one out that is out of date all these things will keep your hubs looking fresh and new.

    As you learn about keywords etc you can make them more abundantly monetized as well.

    I actually don't think you can change the name of a hub after published. You can edit the hub content but the URL title remains unchangeable last I knew.

      You can change the title-- but not the url.  I have done it several times.
      If you want the url to reflect the title wording-- it would be a matter unpublishing and  starting over.

        I thought the URL was the Title of your article? Are you guys talking about the individual subtitles of each capsule? If so then yes that can be changed but the URL, I don't think so!

          Here's an example of mine:
          http://hubpages.com/hub/When-the-Power-Fails

          My original title was "when the power fails" but I decided the the title :"Power Failure: I am (pretty much) Ready" better suited the tone of the article. The changed title appears at the top of the article, the url remains original.
          I have others that are more drastic changes-- but this was the first example I found.

          Mel, the URL is the URL.  The Title is the Title (the one you see in bold type at the top of your article).  It's good to have a URL which contains your keywords, but it's not vital to have the URL perfect.  Having a good Title can compensate for a less-than-perfect URL.

          And by the way, it's not necessary to unpublish a Hub to edit it - just go into edit mode, edit it, and hit "done editing" when you're finished.
