    I published a new hub yesterday and it wasn't until I was adding my link somewhere else that I noticed that I had spelled vegetables as vegeatbles! Will this affect my hub being indexed by Google ect? I started the hub in the early hours when perhaps I should have been catching some Zzzzz's

      It won't hurt that much, as long as your title is okay. The content is more important. And it might bring up your hub when someone searching makes the same typo.

        Oh good! Thanks for taking the time to reply. The title is fine and I checked through the content several times before publishing it reading it out aloud ect. I started the hub in the early hours. I guess that is why I missed the stupid mistake.

          I think we all have a few Hubs like that. If it isn't published yet, you can just start a new Hub with the correct URL and move everything over, but that takes time. After publication, it may be better to leave it up with the misspelled URL, in order not to break backlinks to the article.

            Hi Maddie, it is a new hub that I have published. If it is not going to affect being indexed then I shall leave it as it is. Thanks for your input.

      This should not have any adverse effect on your hub. Google looks at titles and hub content for search information. I have a one when I first started here that is not even related to the subject of the hub, when I was a mere pup a learning. smile I left it and it was not negatively effected because of that error.

          You are most welcome. I thought a "hub" was like a web ring, when I first started... like you created a group or circle of hubs that was theme based, lol. So my first hub url was a reflection of the overall topic of what now is a hub group I have on HP. Talk about jumping in and not knowing. smile

            I did exactly the same thing on another platform! I had this grand idea and started with all the titles and urls being the same and then - and what that particular page topic was. Doh!!! As they say you live and learn. In fact I'm still learning lol

              I think we never stop learning, lol. smile I learn new stuff here and elsewhere on a daily basis. Not like those many years ago as a youngster that thought he knew it all....and made so many wrong choices and decisions, lol.

                That is very true, my nan will often say "well I never knew that, you learn something new everyday"  and she's 89. Cripes I have got a lot of learning to do as yet! I still make rash decisions, and often they come back and bite me. I need to learn to take a deep breath and a step back for a minute or two, old habits are hard to break!

    I would leave it because a lot of people misspell vegetables.

    Hi tamron, yes I am obviously one of those, I must write it 20-30 times a day and still often mis-spell it as I write. Thank goodness for spell checker! Reminder to self never start a hub in the early hours!
