I checked to see if any of my urls for a new site are in AllTheWeb by using:

URL.all:www.mysite.com

What it brought up was very strange:

[go.evreka.passagen.se...]

The "rocky-mountains-ponderosa-pine" stuff is mine. But all of the address before that is a mystery. When I click on the link it goes to my site. The url on the browser looks fine after clicking on it - it's my URL.

Is this some internal working of AllTheWeb I don't know about? Is somebody somehow highjacking my site? Or, what the heck is going on?

Is it an exact cache of the site or does it forward to your page?

I'm unsure how to tell.

When I put in the search on AllTheWeb, it brings up the strange result. When I put the mouse pointer over the link, it shows:

http://go.evreka.passagen.se/g/http://www.mountainsmagnificent.com/rocky-mountains-ponderosa-pine/

Then when I click on the link my page comes up, and the browser shows it to be the correct address for my website:

http://www.mountainsmagnificent.com/rocky-mountains-ponderosa-pine

And oddly enough, one time the exact same search showed four outside sites that link to the page, but none of my pages were included.

Looks like they Forward to that URL :) like how when you goto yahoo and you mouse over it says like goURL?http://www.xxx ;) I don't seen anything to worry about. So somewhere on that site they have a link to your site is what i see.

Too much paranoia, and not enough research. There's no sinister motive here.

[evreka.passagen.se...] is a Swedish web directory. They're using go.evreka.passagen.se for redirects to listed sites. Perfectly normal for web directories that want to track outgoing traffic.

Fast indexed the redirection. That's all.

I saw something similar the other day also. When I traced it down, it seemed to be a Finnish equivalent of a directory called goeureka.
