External link sending people to someone elses hub

    I have a link from my website, www.filarecki.com/mixing-colors.html
    to my Hub
    http://judyfilarecki.hubpages.com/hub/h … ndscapes-2

    but it is sending it to someone else's hub, glennhh, that is no longer published.

    http://glennhh.hubpages.com/hub/How-To-Paint-Landscapes

    This is my second highest rated Hub and I don't want people being turned away.

      The problem is that you have the same title someone else has for a Hub, so "-2" was affixed to the URL.
      http:xxx//judyfilarecki.hubpages.com/hub/how-to-paint-landscapes-2

      You need to change the two links on your webpage and put -2 at the end.

      Many Hubs transferring from Squidoo are going to have these duplicate title issues.

        +1 -- you can see on your website, by hovering over the link, that the "2" is missing

          And, there are two links on the website to change.

            Thank you. Adding the -2 solved the problem. I'll have to pay attention to that as I update other links on my website to HubPages from Squidoo.

              I think it is a problem that many other people don't even realize they are having.  Perhaps they will see your experience here.

      The [problem was solved by adding -2 to the link name. Someone else  had the same title at some time so they added a 2 to mine and I didn't realize it. Thanks, though, for taking the time to respond.

    Check your URL.  That just sounds like a typo.

    Very weird.  Is it still happening for you?  I tried it, and it worked fine.  If its still happening for you I would try clearing your cache and cookies.  Those pesky things can cause all sorts of strange behavior.

    Also, and not sure if this is your problem or not, but sometimes when you forget to add the "http://" in front of the URL and just type in www.yourwebsitehere.com without the http://, this will result in an error and/or redirect to another page.
