    (Had to change p...o..r...n to Nasty, couldn't publish with that there)
    Bet you never thought you would see that on here did you?
    Fact is, I couldn't find my hub Funny Stuff from Victorian London.
    So I went into Google and put it in the search. Found it, and clicked!!
    It seems that they have taken my URL somehow added there's so when I clicked on it was, well, ya know!
    It doesn't show up on my legitimate one so I can't do the google zap thing.
    Any suggestions?
    And no, not what site is it so we can all go take a look.....LOL!
    Seriously, I do need to get rid of it.

    Hi Nell,

    It can't be the same URL as two pages can't exist on the same one. And you can't copyright titles, so there's nothing you can do except ignore it.

    What do you mean when you say you couldn't find your article? Can you get to it from your account page? And can you see the difference when you compare the two URLs?

    Okay I looked at your profile and found this: … range-Past

    I'm not seeing anything odd when I put your title into a search. Your article isn't showing up, but other similar ones are. The top one is an article from Buzzfeed and there are several history ones on the first page of Google results. It might be because your URL and your title are very different.

      This is a screen shot. Take a look at the url under my title. It looks like my hub, but if you click on my title it brings up p.....o....r....n. got to write it like that as hubpages won't allow the word on here.

        I think you can ignore it, Nell. It'll be taken down soon enough. However, you could submit a request to have it excluded from Google's results. Easily done.

    I'm a little confused also Nell. I've had articles show as being copied, but when you click on the link you are redirected to an adult site. Is this what you mean?
    I usually leave these well alone, especially as the sites seem to get shut down eventually.
