Our site, www.pcsda.org comes up correctly if you go directly to this URL, however, if you do a Google Search for Potomac Conference, the first result should be http://www.pcsda.org- If you click on the top result the http://www.pcsda.org redirects to a pages that has this ERROR:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If I do a search for (lcev3uh) this page comes up:
http://evuln.com/labs/

Can you tell if this means the site has been hacked, or it's a Google issue, or a hosting/server issue? We don't even know where to start to get this fixed.

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

it looks like a wrong entry in the tinyurl site.
you can't change that by your self, write a mail to support+lcev3uh@tinyurl.com,
and ask them to remove that entry.

Cheers

seems like a google issue or maybe even a dns issue.

The fact that you can get to the site directly via the address directly means the site itself is fine.

The URL in google seems to be off (copy shortcut -> paste didn't even work.)

That appears to be a Google problem.  Have you submitted a sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools or are they getting the link to your pages from somewhere else?
