    When I start a new Hub, I pick a title and sometimes change this before really publishing my Hub.

    After publishing I sometimes want to copy and paste my Hublink into a message and found out it shows up with the URL and the first title I chose.

    Can I change the URL and how?

      No, the url is the only thing you can't change. You can abandon it and start a new more suitable one though.

        Ok great! I can just copy and past my whole Hub into a new one with the right URL and leave the other one unpublished. I will lose my hubscore over it I guess?

    That might show up as duplicate.. you may have to wait until the cached copy has been totally wiped out.. if it is a hub that is yet to be published at least until the hub as been deleted from the system.. may be wait for 48 hours before pasting it into the new URL.

    If you're creating a link to your hub, the text shown in the link (the 'anchor text') can be anything you doesn't have to be the URL itself.

    In a Hubpages text capsule..when you come to the part where you want a link to your hub (with the changed title), type the new title in your text.  Then highlight that part, and click the button on the editor's toolbar that looks like a small chain-link.  A new window comes up where you can paste the URL in.  Now the link that people see is your new title, but the underlying URL is the original.

    Outside of Hubpages, this method requires a bit of HTML code, which is a little difficult to show in this comment section, since it may be interpreted as an actual link.
