    Arrow Google Website Results Problem - Showing Spam Results


    Hello, I help a friend with his website and everything has been fine. But a few months ago, whenever 'scream horror' or 'scream horror magazine' is searched for in Google it brings up the site, but below it there are spam results like:

    Order Pyridium Online
    Order Pyridium Online | Buy Online Without Prescription. Low Prices

    **Please see attached screenshot**
    http:// s17.postimage.org/rtuejfg71/google_results .jpg

    I have no idea where Google is getting that information from, as that content is not on our site (as far as I can see).

    Why would Google bring this up? And most importantly how can we stop it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Does this only happen on one computer, or on several?

    One browser, or more than one?

    I have tried it from mine and it does it, and the site owner has tried it, and several visitors have emailed in complaining that this happens with them too.

    It happens on my Firefox and IE and his IE too. I haven't seen it in Chrome because when I search it doesn't bring up those extra details.

    Well, that narrows it down quite a bit

    Leaves a 99% chance that the website was indeed hacked, or "injected".

    Is it database driven, or can it be re-uploaded from a clean, offline backup copy?

    Have you changed the passwords (access, FTP, admin, whatever passwords) already?

    Thanks for your reply. The site is a WordPress site so runs off a database. I will have to check when the last backup was taken.

    No, but will change all passwords now. Thanks for the heads up.


    Is there anything else we can do to reverse this?

    Ok it is hacked. Cloaked in fact. Using a simple method of user-agent detection.

    If your client hasn't done this him/herself, then someone else has full access to the oily bits.

    Check the .htaccess file for starters! There could well be some nasty WP plugin that's responsible for this.
