    Red face Got hacked - my SERPS are out of whack, please help.


    Hi...

    About a month ago several of my sites were hacked. They've since been fixed and locked-down tight but I'm still seeing 45,000+ (per website) spammy SERPS (search results) when running the site:mywebsite.com on Google.

    Can anybody tell me if this is hurting my SEO in any way? I've requested re-indexing from Google, etc.. obviously that may take some time but I don't know if I should put any more effort into SEO until this issue has been resolved.

    Any suggestions incredibly appreciated!

    Thanks

    If the hacks added pages to your website you can go through WMT and remove them from Google's index.

    The pages were some sort of cloaked redirects, they didn't actually create pages on my website/server but I guess they did get indexed.. The hackers evidently verified one of the sites too and manually indexed it (45,000+ links)....

    Anyways -- I've re-indexed all of my sites.. I'm just wondering how long it might be before Google removes these links from their cache.

    Here's one (1 of 500,000) links that were indexed: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:zR--KYeNgMEJ:sunsmarthome.com/fodjps-qjus-dyyah-vtpwpsfp/yzuca-acjgnq-t3614-uovgt-zmjx-a20172809-qjxvble-jhfcgt-zrja/+&cd=95&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us
