I started writing a new hub and made a mistake in the url title. It is called "Letting Go Of Your Grown Daughter" It should be "Letting Go Of Your Growing Daughter" So, when you think about it sounds like I am talking about a full grown adult and not my teenage daughter.

edit your hub title and change the error, it wont change the url, but it will use the keywords that people use to search for the information you are providing.
the other option is to delete that hub all together and start again in a new hub.....jimmy

will hubpages penalize me though if the title suggests adults when I am writing about teenagers?

Make sure it is correct in the page description "summary" text, too.

Is It true that your hub score falls a few numbers- two, three points - whenever you edit your hub?

Hi there, I'd been on Hubpages for 6 months now but probably been active for only 2 or 3 weeks. At the moment, I have 7 hubs and only 1 have breached the 80 mark (75-85). Most are in the 70s. 1-2 will drop down to 60s every now and then. So my question is, how do you make a hub go above 80 in...
