    Hi all. My name on hubpages is charlie which is my dogs name i started writing under,
    I also had the same name on google plus but a few months ago i changed my name on google plus to my real name Stuart.
    Since this my google author ship is not working fully for this site,
    I know if you do a data structure test Rel author mark up on my hubs it shows some parts are but for the full benefits google prefer your name to be the same,

    So basicly i would like to change my name on here i know in previous posts it says you can not and have to delete your account, if this is still true what is the best way to transfer all hubs and start again.

    All i want changed is the the By line part that shows up. not my url is this possable?
    Thanks Stuart  / Charlie

      Click to 'Edit Profile' and you will see a box where you may enter your real name.  So, put the name you want in there. Be sure to save the change.

      Charlie/Stuart,
      Have you considered placing your byline on each hub to indicate that each is your creation?

      There is no mechanism to change your subdomain.

      I don't think closing your HubPages account and creating a new one will have any impact on Google+ authorship.

      So long as your Google account is under your real name and your authorship is linked to HP, your real name will show up in search. My HP name is Cardisa but my real name shows up under my articles, blogs and websites.

    Hi writer fox and erin
    Yes i have got both things done you suggested ,
    I created the google linked by line and added to some hubs a few weeks ago to see if that way would work,
    It dose help, but not totally

    I think deleting seems to be the way forward.

    Charlie is my dog's name too. Do you have a mouse, Stuart?
