    Hello Fellow Hubbers,

    My question is not how do I change the title after a hub has been published.

    My question is how will this effect links that I have already sent out. Will the links automatically be updated when I change the title or will they no longer work?

    Can anyone help me out on this one?  I have been searching and searching.  Can't seem to find the answer anywhere.

    I am having second thoughts after I published my last hub.

    Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Even if you change the title of your hub, the URL will remain the same, so all the links you have already posted/emailed will still work.

      Thanks so much for such a fast reply.  I will be sure to check out your hubs.

    I've changed a title of a still unpublished hub - can I change the URL as well?

      I am still new and learning but the only way I know how is to start a new hub and copy everything over and then delete the original.

      The only thing you can do with the URL is put a tracker in place.

      This won't actually change the URL for the Hub, because the URL's are locked into what has already been named.

    No way! It's not published but I've really done a ton of work on it already. If it's not yet published, I'd think that the URL would not be set in stone.

      You would have to start a new hub with a different URL, copy all of your work over to the new one, and delete the other unpublished hub.

      The URL is "set in stone" the moment you hit "Continue" at the bottom of the Create a Hub page. It's best to think about the URL and what it should be before starting. It is no problem for the URL to be shorter and more generic than the title.

    Cagskill and Jeffrey, thank you so much for explaining that. Been here for a year and still don't know the half of it.

      You might need to delete and start again with a new URL if you aren't happy with the first.  Hope this helps x

    I've changed many titles after re-thinking.
    As others have said, URLs are forever. If they weren't-- any backlinks you already have would be lost.
    There's no problem with the two not matching up.

      AFTER reading Maddie Ruud's answer to your query- all I can say from experience as a fellow hubpages hubber- is that said response is gospel truth.  Hubbers- new and old alike- must be guided by it.
