I noticed that if start a hub and then change its name later that the URL name remains the same. For example, i recently published this hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Insiders-Gu … h-Car-Show which was originally titled The Insiders Guide to the Pebble Beach Car Show. I changed the name to Car Lover's Weekend - The Monterey Historic Races and Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance but the URL did not change.
I am worried this will affect my search traffic. Any tips, ideas? I am contemplating deleting this hub and starting a new one with the correct title.
I think url will not change once you posted.
we can't change the url

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 ?

I have noticed that you can easily change the title of a hub and it seems to change the title in your account list, but I noticed it never seems to change in the URL assigned to that hubpage. Is this to discourage changing the title? I'm new and starting to experiment with the effects...
