Im posting this question separately so It doesnt get lost in the other thread
how do I change a URL on a hub? Can't see where to do it when editing
If you paid attention when you first created your Hub, you'd have noticed that it is specified very clearly that URLs can't be changed after the Hub is made.
You can change the title, the text, the tags-- almost everything, but not the url.
If you really "need" to change it, the best thing is to copy your material and repost in a new hub-- making sure you have the url you want.
(Edit:everyone types faster than I do.)
You can change the URL right after you start a new hub. After you type in a title into the box at the top, you'll see the resulting URL just below that. While there are good (search engine) reasons for the title and the URL to match, it's not essential.
Once you've settled on the title, if you want a shorter URL, you can edit the part after "http://hubpages/hub/". This is your last chance to change the URL. After this, if you really want to change the URL after the hub is published, you'll have to save your work, and delete the hub and start over.
I have change the title and the contents, but the permalink is still the previous one

Okay I see... thanks.
Besides, it doesn't really matter if the title and the URL match.

Yesterday, I created a hub on a specific topic and I only wrote in the title and put it in it's category. I got tired and saved it as it was. I planned to start back on it today. Today I changed the title (and topic) of my hub to a completely new subject and re-categorized it. The URL is now the...

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 ?

The title of a hub of mine was changed a few days back. But its URL remains unchanged and thus appears to be some other hub's URL. The URL must be changed to make it match the hub it is linked with. I do not know how to attain this goal. Please help me do it.

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?

Is there a way to change a URL once a hub has been started?I know you can change the title to your hub, but can you change the URL?

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?...
