i want to make my hub titles more interesting, Ive been trying to get them to fit a group title and then an individual title... I want one on
australian.... something and then the individual title, yet I think that is getting dull..
do you write titles like grab lines, or titles to be clear?
The main heading title should adequately describe what the hub's about, and be clear, concise, but intriguing, and hopefully contain the main keyword(s) you intend to use to attract search engine traffic. The hub article's (url) name is important for the same reason (choose carefully..you can't change it later).

thankyou a word appeared in my head as others may have been replying.. so thankyou. I was looking for that blend of informative and interesting.. and ive worked out if I dont get it I can use key words and change the title when editing, so its all good.

You don't really want one word titles, like 'bats.' Baseball bats or the animal? What about bats?

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?...

I don't understand the Exclusive Titles: I just checked a subject I am interested in. I get a title for a Hub that I have already written! I thought the idea was it was Exclusive. I'm very confused. Help.

I wish the url were not cast in stone as soon as the title is typed into the title capsule. Sometimes before I even move on to the next page, I realize I have made a mistake and it is too late to change it. I CAN change the title. My question how much weight does the url have vs. the title in...

My most recent hub was Snipped and given a new short title by staff which does not properly reflect the contents of the hub. Views have been negatively impacted and have not picked up after the change. I want to change the title back to what it was. I wrote to staff...
