I have taken down a few hubs which I want to rewrite. I may give them different titles. How do I take the old title off of Google? Thanks.
Use the Google URL removal tool after you have unpublished your articles. It takes about 24 hrs to be removed. Be aware though that you will lose all the aging of the article by re-writing it from scratch with a new URL, and you are probably better off simply unpublishing the article, giving it a new title (although the URL will remain the same), editing it as you want to, and then republishing it.

Sometimes I write a hub, then later tweak it...a lot. I change the title and sometimes even make major changes to the focus and content. In the end. the original URL often does not match the content. My question is...does this matter in any way? Will Google downgrade my sub...

When I first started writing at HubPages I was under the impression that one should make the url and the first title of their hub the same.So my question now is: When trying to write the url for maximum traffic, how much should you really deviate on the main title?

After going through the process of starting a new Hub article, several times I changed the title and subject matter before submitting to HubPages. I have noticed the URL continues to use the original title, i.e., "Dolly Parton Trivia," whereas I actually changed the article about...

I just published a new article called "Interesting Guns in Gaming". Unfortunately, the web address for this article used the original name of the article "Top Three Guns in Gaming". Do I have to do something before publishing?
