Google showing correct URL but incorrect website details


Likes # 0

I have various domains registered with 1and1 for email purposes. Last weekend I built my first website using 1and1 websitebuilder. I am fairly satisfied with the results, but there is one major problem - when I enter the site into Google, the correct URL is shown, but the details about the website relate to a website my son built about a band he was in at the time. The website is about educational services so this is obviously very confusing for anyone interested in that subject and unlikley to win many new customers! I have spoken to 1and1 at length about this and inserted key words and generated mete tags but they tell me there is nothing else which can be done now and I must wait until Google visits the site and updates it's detailas and no-one know how long that might be. Can anyone tell if there is any way of getting this fixed quickly? emailing the Google webmaster for instance. I also need to understand how this can happen - it it IP address specific or hosting company specific? Any help would be very much appreciated.
