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.
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.
Yep, just go in to edit mode and change the title and republish.
You are quite welcome! Look forward to this new batch of hubs.
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 Adding in a video later or taking one out that is out of date all these things will keep your hubs looking fresh and new.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.
Just wanted to report the the advice was all correct & the editing changes went just fine.
Thank you for the good input.
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:
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.
Thanks I see that now, is this new bcuz the first hub I published a month ago, i put an extra space in but couldn't change it. Or maybe I just missed it before bcuz my paypal plugin had it turned light blue in the field so I overlooked it!

When you publish a hub, it is normally listed under hub activity and a notification is sent via email to all interested parties. Now, when you unpublish that hub, finish re-editing and then republish it (keeping the original title intact), will it appear in the hub activity? Also, will...

We need an indication of what link is causing this error.Either that, or a list of sites that are prohibited. Expecting us to go through every link HOPING that we find the offending link is a waste of our time.This kind of message is not helpful."This hub contains prohibited promotional links,...

Why are we not able to change the URL of an existing hub?
