We are encouraged to find a more appealing title for hubs if they aren't getting enough traffic. But if somebody uses the old title, will they be re-directed? I just changed over to the subdomain, and looked up one of my popular hubs. It's under the original name, although I changed that group of them at least 2 or 3 months ago.

The URL does not change, The title just adds different key words upon which the search engine acts; In other words by changing the tittle you are just making it easier for people to find you, assuming the new tittle key words are better than the old tittle key words.
It takes the search engines quite a while to find a new page title, then drop the old title's association with your URL, and index the new title. Just be patient.

Over the past year, I've changed a few hub titles to give them better keywords and get them further up on Google. However, there have been a couple of hubs that just seemed to get "lost" when I do this. For example, I wrote a hub about two weeks ago and it was on Google for a few hours...

Has anyone experienced increased traffic to hubs after simply editing their titles?

How long should I wait before changing the titles on my hubs to try to get more traffic. I read in one place I should wait 2 months.
