As you all know, the learning center has a ton of info on gettng started. However, i'm still lost. lol I can't figure out how and why i give a web address to a hub...so, as you can see i'm a little off. i'm assuming you choose a topic and start writing but i'm obviously wrong. I dont have a website, so what web site URL should i put? the side bar says to be consistant, and put a website that matched the topic but my topic is something I created, i'm so confused..any help would be great.
You start a hub. Key in the title. The software does the rest for you. You don't need to give it any web address - it's all automatic.
If you look top top right corner when you login, there is tab called start a new hub, place a title, it will create a URL automatically based on the title of your hub, then you find appropriate category and start writing your hub.
You do not need a website to write on hubpages.
A hub is an article that you write which has a seperate URL. You do not have to give it a URl as it takes your Title as an URL automatically. You choose the topic and write a piece. Hope this helps, welcome to HP and best wishes to you. You will get by dont worry!
hi have you sussed it out yet..... waiting to read one of your hubs
The best thing to do is just to start a hub. It'll walk you through how to do everything. Reading is fine, but if you haven't started a hub in the first place then much of what you read won't make any sense.
Besides, if you start one and don't like it, you can always leave it unpublished. Treat it as a learning experience and move on to the next.
As Mark Ewbie said, the software takes care of creating the URL when you type in the title before actually writing the Hub. (Start by clicking on "start a new hub" and see what happens.)
But at that time (and only at that time), before you leave that page, you can change the URL - that is, if your title is very detailed and you would like to keep the keywords, but make it shorter (for example), that is the time to do it.
Once you have created the URL, it's set and cannot be changed. The title can be changed, but not the URL.

I just noticed a "glitch" today after creating my latest hub when writing in a title. The title is the first thing I write when I open the hub tool. As I'm writing the hub, making many additions and changes to my original, I look at the title to see if it still fits. In most of my hubs, I...

SEO experts....How important is it that URL matches title keywords?I titled a hub, partially typed and saved it. Then I decided a different title would be more appropriate and changed it. I just realized the URL (in the address bar in the search engine) keeps the original title. So my URL does not...

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?

SEO is a hard science.and yet we are not able to update/change/amend our url readily, Yes, we can re-write, re-create but wouldn't it be nice to write a hub, then do the SEO and amend the url?I am not good with SEO and writer's block hits me when I start looking at the SEO.
