One of my hubs somehow has the same URL as another one of my hubs. The second hub's URL does not even match the hub content. How do I change the URL so that it matches the hub content and does not have another hub address?
For two different Hubs to have the exact same URL sounds (to me) to be impossible, which would mean that it is a glitch of some kind. I'm hoping an engineer will see this thread and comment.
But, if the URL's are not exactly the same but too close for comfort (one letter different, for example), and assuming you want to change one of them (the non-matching one), the only thing you can do is to delete one of them and start again from scratch.
First, though, copy the content (for example into a .txt or other word-processing file); and keep a record of pictures, videos, and other capsules you used, to make it easier to construct the new Hub.
codyman4: I don't know which Hubs you're talking about, but I looked at your account and don't see any duplication. As Aficionada said, it is literally impossible for 2 Hubs to have the same URL.
I actually did find the two that codyman mentioned, but there was one word difference between them - easy to overlook in a hurry.
And codyman was correct in saying that the URL for one of them is not related to it at all. It's a bit bizarre that that happened (since s/he would have created the URL in the first place), but somehow it did. So, I would repeat my previous suggestion to delete the affected Hub and start over.

I have noticed that when I open up some hubs to read that there is a # symbol at the end of the url.What does this mean - is it anything to do with the idling/pending/whatever they are calling it this week business? And why only on some hubs?

I have just noticed today that many of my hubs where I reference other author's hubs and included a link to their profile, the URL has been shortened to just "hubpages.com" - thereby removing the actual link to the author. I have no idea how long this has been happening, but I am going...

Would it be important to have the hub title and hub URL have slightly different words to rank better in search engines? For example, if the word "vehicles" is used in title and the word "cars" is used in URL.Are our hubs mainly found because of the title or URL? Obviously having...

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 ?
