I noticed something peculiar on one of my recently published Hubs. The title of that article published on 4/19/2011 was called-"Pet Cock-A-Poos and Skin Allergies" When I clicked on my account today, it had the symbols embedded within and said "(Pet@#*%-A-Poos And Skin Allergies)" This I thought was very strange and when I go to click on the edit button to check on it, it says article is no longer published. I cannot figure who or how these symbols replaced my original title text. I did also enter this article in a writing contest. Can someone please provide some feedback as to what may have happened here? Thanks all for your feedback.
LOLOL! I think you got caught in the "adult content" filter. Just email the team. I'm sure they'll straighten it out one way or the other.
I wasn't even thinking about that-but thanks for reminding me about the filter. I thought that it may be a bad URL or something similar. Do you know the address for mailing the team, or where on hubpages do I click to send an email. This is a bit embarrasing. Thanks for your help!
HP can let you know if the Coc* part of the word can be used. Even with words running together, the word can be picked out as a "Keyword" and may send an alert to Google Adsense or even HP.
I see nothing personally wrong with the word since it is part of the name of a Dog Breed, but...HP has to follow Adsense rules just as we do.
Hope you get this fixed.
Just found the link on Hubpages help. I appreciate everyone's additional help with my prior issue. Have to be careful with my choice of words next time around.
I just went to the hub you mentioned and the title appears as you wanted it to be. I also type the name into Google search and it appeared in the search results the correct way.
I still believe it would be safer to contact HP though to protect your hub and adsense account if there are any doubts.
Don't know if you see this on the hub, but I saw 4 comment sections!?!?
Thanks for your help with my issue. Furthest thing from my mind, when I was creating an original title for my article. By the way where on the site do I go to send an email to the team in reference to this issue? Thanks for your help.
You may have to use the name Cockapoo as one word to get past the adult content filter. I would contact HP just to be on the safe side though.

For a long time it has puzzled me how one of my hubs keeps doing great, when it shouldn't. You see, I started a hub on one topic and then changed my mind in the middle of it.Now, back then I had no idea you couldn't...

I originally began the hub as a poem only -- then I got so involved in research of the place where I wrote the poem that I changed the title to an Educational/historical site hub. However, I had saved the hub...
