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Use the Google URL removal tool after you have unpublished your articles.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.

Nobody looks at the URL, so just leave it, otherwise you'll lose the aging and the higher Google ranking an "aged" hub already has. But go ahead and change the title if you want, because people will look at that, and rewrite to your heart's content!
