Google Scholar account malfunctioning creating serious ethical concerns

Dear Team, I am Faiza Sharif, Professor at GC University Lahore, Pakistan. I am facing a very serious issue of malfunctioning of Google Scholar Account. I created my account when i was an assistant professor at GC University and updated my profile information when I became Professor/Director. But unfortunately in the search results still both profiles did exist and when I open the Assistant Professor page
it opens in a view that is not editable where I can not add or delete publications. When I go to my profile option of this page it took me to the Professor/Director page. The real issue is that I have two more ladies with same name at two different universities in Lahore, one at COMSATS University with Google Scholar profile link and the other one at University of Lahore at My Assistant Professor page is no more editable and is adding publications of both these ladies automatically. To resolve this issue I deleted my Professor/Director profile more than one month ago but the issue still persists and the linked Assistant Professor page is still there. This is creating serious issues of publication claim on my part that I have no control over. Kindly delete my profile on priority basis so that the issue of serious ethical concern might be resolved. Thanks and best regards

My name is not appearing in my article when it is displayed in Google scholar

My name is Babitha. The email associated with my google scholar account is [email protected].
I have recently published an article as first author, but I am having single name in it. Google scholar is not showing my name is author because of which I might face problems in future. Title of the article is "Machine Learning based Landslide Susceptibility Mapping Models and GB-SAR based Landslide Deformation Monitoring Systems: Growth and Evolution".
Please resolve the issues

Deleted Citations on Google Scholar

Google Scholar team:

I am a research scientist at a university (Universided del Norte), my email address is [email protected] and I have been listed on Google Scholar for many years.

Please correct these observations of possible hackings:
Alcon et al. NS1 paper for which 200 Google Scholar citations were removed last week!
Example A)
First evidence of the real diagnostic capability of the dengue virus nonostructural-1 (NS1) glycoprotein. Funded by the European Communities grant to A.K. Falconar
‘This work was supported by grant TS3-CT94-0290 from the European Union and program DSP/STTC 98/074 from DGA.’ This paper had nearly 1,000 (n = 990) Google Scholar citations, but last week 200 citations were removed last week possibly due to hacking so it now has only 790 Google Scholar citations!
Example B)
This single authored paper had 50 Google Scholar citations many years ago and which was suddenly reduced to just 15 possibly due to hacking. Funded by the European Communities grant to A.K. Falconar and a personal grant from a Charitable Trust
Now this publication has 87 Google Scholar citations but even MORE Web of Science citations (n = 93)! ‘This work was supported by the Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust and the European Communities grant number TS∗CT94 0290’. Given that the Google Scholar citations are always 1.5x to 2.0 times more than those of the Web of Science citations for the same article, that would mean that the Google Scholar citations for this article should be 120-174 (NOT 87). As such, this is another example why we cannot trust Google Scholar citations.
