    Ok, Somehow two of my hubs have co-mingled: Edward Lear,and April writing prompts. When I search April Writing prompts the link is there indexed in google and when click my hub appears.  Now, I went to see if Edward Lear was indexed: this is what I found....Edward lear appears but underneath is the April writing prompt title and when I click on the Edward Lear link I am sent directly to my hubpage profile? what has happened. Should I unpublish the Edward Lear Hub and republish it under a different URL?....

      I just did the same search and it came up in Google the same for me.  I see the hub listed there on your profile page, so that is apparently why Google is showing that page.  Google is seeing Edward Lear on your profile page.  Not sure what can be done.  I would take that hub url, go to Google Webmaster Tools, click on Diagnostics then on Fetch with Gogglebot, and once fetched, submit that link for indexing.  That will not hurt and may help solve the problem.  Not sure why it is not showing up on its own with the Google search.

        Dale, it comes up with a 404 error... do I ask for it to do another crawl?

          If you are getting a 404 error check the url.  you would not put in the whole url. for that hub, in the provided box, you would put:

          hub/Edward-Lear-Poet-Illustrator-Naturalist-Bird-Painter-Artist

            I caught that mistake and re did it-still 404.

              Then I would have to pass the torch to Izzy down there, as the more experience lies there and it appears that is what is happening.  As mentioned, hopefully it will be corrected by tomorrow.  I shall dwell on it whilst at work tomorrow and see if I can come up with anything else.

    When did you publish the Edward Lear hub? It looks to me like it isn't indexed yet, so you see your profile page (which references it) and some random words.

      Thank IzzyM for coming on to help! It was indexed earlier,today. But was all jumbled up with the other hub's summary? I checked the other hub and it is indexed and acting normal. I checked the summary on the hub in Question (edward lear) and it is how i wrote it - no sign of anything about the april writing prompt hub. I can go to google and get the link, but when I click on it it sends me to my hub profile? When I sent the URL through Webmaster it showed the 404 error....would you have the URL re crawled?

        It'll sort itself out, I wouldn't bother. I didn't see it indexed, but it probably will be tomorrow smile

        The link I saw for it in Google WAS your profile link, not that hub's link. That is because your profile carries the link.

        When it is indexed it will show in Google under its exact url.

          Thanks, Izzy. I suppose these things have a way of working out on their own. Hopefully, by tomorrow.

    It's all sorted now.

    Under an exact search for the url of your Edward Lear hub (it has now been indexed), is the hub, 2nd entry is your profile, and 3rd entry is this thread.
