How does one correct misinformation relating to hub/hubID on web?

    I revised a hub and decided to check for it in the unrevised form on the web. I found it but the link led to my profile. Strangely enough, it is in the category poetry; but it was not listed under poetry. In fact, it was not listed at all!I looked.

    Directly under the web listing was another containing the word snobby in its title. It had my hub title and hubpage ID/pen name in the article summary. However, the link led to a hub by Jeremeo.Obviously, there was an error. I found this on Bing as my computer pulls up Bing faster than Google or Ask. When I checked Google the listing seemed fine; but when I checked again,it seemed confuddled.maybe Ask got it wrong.

    I would appreciate any advice, comment and help.

    Web searches will return Hubs where your Hubs are linked in the "related" box, which we all know sometimes lists Hubs that are not all that well related.

      Relache is right.  One tip - if you're finding that "related Hubs" are very unrelated, take a look at your tags. 

      Related Hubs are chosen based on your tags. Sometimes you'll find you've included some tags which are too vague or have more than one interpretation.  Fix or remove them and you'll find your Related Hub list will usually improve.
