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.

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?
