Hi @Binu J

One thing you can do to help Google from getting confused like this in future is to enhance the structured data you already have on your site.

 

One of the schema types you can add is called sameAs, and using that type you can add your wikipedia link.

If that makes no sense to you, don't worry. This is something a good web developer should understand.  So if you have one, pass that info on and it should help.

 

In the meantime, I'll ask Google to correct.

Hi @Binu J

 

Google have confirmed this is a known glitch, no known fix release date.  The best solution at this stage is to use the feedback button below the KP and send your change request.

Sorry not to have been able to be more help with this.

Hi @Binu J

Update:  Google may have found a workaround for this one listing - please check back in a week and let me know if it has been corrected.
