Can you change the url of your Hub?
I have recently heard that hub urls play an important role in determining page rank but because I didn't knew this earlier some of my hub urls are not optimized with keywords. can they be changed? or is their something lse I can do with it ?
Your hub's URL cannot be changed once created. I have on several occasions tweaked or greatly changed the title and that has had a positive effect on SEO.
It is not possible to change url of hub. Anyhow, you can change title of your hub.
The person that told you that hub urls play an important role in determining page rank is wrong.
Google PageRank only reflects incoming links to your Hub so, no, your specific URL has no bearing on PageRank because it is the URL to your Hub and not a link to it.
I think you probably want to know if the URL can affect the search ranking of your Hub. The answer is yes, it can. How important a role it plays depends upon many things, such as your competition for search query results.

Unless your URL is totally unrelated to the content of your Hub, don't worry about changing it and just change your Title and on-page optimization if you need to.
The only way to change the URL on HubPages is to unpublish the Hub and start over again with a new one.

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 ?

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?

When you change your hub-title does hubpages change the url?I have changed a couple of my hub-titles and when it changes the previous title remains in the url. Do I have to change the url myself or does it eventually change on its own? Thanks.

I know that once you publish a hub you shouldn't change the title because it affects . . . well I don't fully understand it, but I know it's not a good idea, especially established hubs. However, if I did change a title shortly after it was published, would that still not be good for some reason?...
