Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
When I look at the keywords for the new site in the Google webmaster tools, the list is packed full of words... that have nothing to do with my site! They seem to be about cruises, sports, casinos, and various commercial and financial matters.
My original site has the correct words listed, so I don't think it's something my host is doing (the two sites share the same web server). My new site is a Wordpress blog, and there is nothing about casinos or gambling anywhere on the page, or in any linked sites (that I know of). I have Adsense and Amazon affiliate ads, but they are correctly targeting for my site.
What could cause all of the incorrect and none of the correct words to come up? I've looked at the source code both from WordPress and from "View Source" and there is nothing suspicious. I'm completely flabbergasted!

[edit reason] remove specific keywords [/edit]
Strange thing is that nowhere have I added it as a signature or linked it from anywhere that would know my most often used user name. (I tend to either use LunaC or Luna C)
Also in there were the works click, here and home.. again, none I had used in the site or linked to it with. And this was there right after opening the site. I still haven't really promoted it and most linkers seem to be using the site name, url or page's title as link text. No one knew about this site that knew me personally... A bit weird.
Big brother knows my name :o
Is it possible that the domain for your new site was owned by someone else previously? Possibly the words in GWT relate to an older site.
Go to the internet archive: [archive.org...] and enter your domain name and see what shows up.
So will the Googlebot eventually re-crawl my site and decide that it has nothing to do with that old site?
Thanks for that tip--I would have never figured out why that was happening!
