Click on Title in Search Results goes to Another Site

 6:14 am on Jun 11, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hallo Friend,

Today when i am checking my SERP in Google at that time I found that in Google SERP that Google showing title and URL of my site and when i clicked on my site it redirect on other website.

I also checked in my site if i am visiting that page directly then that page is not redirect.

When I was going on that page through Google SERP listing link at that time it redirect on other website. and when I clicked fist time my webpage redirect on other website and when I clicked second time at that time I am seeing my webpage.

How is it possible? Now I am confused it is possible for any one to hack Google SERP? or my site is hacked?

Please give me your idea now what i should to do.

If I understand your situation correctly, I can think of at least two situations that might cause it:

1. The computer you are using may have some malware installed. check from another computer and if there is no problem, run some malware/adware/spyware removal on your computer.

2. This may also be DNS cache poisoning [webmasterworld.com]. That thread has a pretty full discussion of what to do - mostly lock down the DNS entries for your domain.

I have checked this listing from other cities and from other computers also. they found the same result like me.

and I should to look into DNS Cache Poisoning problem due to this my webpage redirect on other site or some other reasons creating this problem.

Thanks for the great info.

I checked my website source code and i found the URL of that site where my site redirecting that means my site is hacked now.

Now it also redirecting on that site when i am searching my site through Search Engines means it is an issue of DNS Cache Poisoning.

So now can you suggest me what i should to do for solve thess problems.

If the url actually appears in your site's source code, that is NOT DNS cache poisoning - it's evidence that your server has been hacked. Server hacks are much, much, much more common than DNS hacks.

The first step is to put back your clean, unhacked pages, as soon as you possibly can, Then you have some technical detective work to do to patch up your server. Start with making sure all patches and updates to your server software are applied.

I found the URL of that website in my source code and that code in script like this "<script>http://www.xyz.com</script>" and there is no any code of redirecting.

so may be there is two problems with my site server hacked and also DNS cache poisoning

Fix the pages to get rid of the script, and then see how things stand. Of course it's also good to do a thorough check-up of your DNS (the thread I linked to has a lot of details on that), but first things first.

There's a Wordpress hack doing the rounds that does just this. If you're running an old version of Wordpress, there's some useful posts popping up on how to solve it (which unfortunately I can't link to here).

There's a good thread about securing against Wordpress hacks in our content Management forum, with some external links to advice from Matt Mullenweg, Lorelle, Matt Cutts and Wordpress.org itself.
