Hi folks. My website https://tamlinbotanical.com is showing up in search results just fine, but so is a search result that is https://tamlinbotanical.squarespace.com/about-us. It shows up right under my proper website results. I can't seem to ask Google to remove it via Search Console because I get an error message saying that the url is not in my property. What is causing this result to appear and how do I get it removed? Thanks for your help.

This usually happens if your site was live (not password protected) before the primary domain was connected to the site. You may need to add the other domain as an additional property before you can make changes.

Thank you for your suggestion, I will see if I can add that property as a domain.

I think the issue may be more simple and silly, however, as I had changed my built-in domain name at some point to match my custom domain. Not sure what my thinking was there. I set the built-in domain back to gibberish and I'm hoping that might cause it to drop out of the SERPs in time.
