So I have this pretty small personal wordpress blog that I've been using for weight loss and health postings. I don't post on it very often and it isn't there to be a big money earner or anything but I do have some ads on it. It only gets about 500 views a month and has shown up for some specific long tail keywords.
Well it has been a few weeks since I even went to the site but yesterday I did. And for whatever reason I also searched for it in Google. I found my site but Google's cache showed a crap load of spam in the site. The cache shows a pharma keyword stuffed website but I've never added any of that text to the site. And what's funny is that there are no links to any other website. Just a bunch of keyword stuffing.
So I checked the website files and the database and I cannot find any of the keywords or any reason as to how they could have gotten on the website in the first place. I called the hosting company and had them check as well. They found nothing.
So what is going on? I didn't add the spam or remove it. The hosting company doesn't know what is going on with it. So how did Google get the keyword spam into their cache? The Google cached files from Apr 26 to May 17th all have the spam in them.
Anyone have any idea what's going on and how to make sure it doesn't happen again?
