My Page Titles Are Being Hijacked RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have about 8 main product pages. When I do an exact search for the titles of these pages, I find that Live search has replaced the two pages in the results with a bunch of proxy servers that are scraping / duplicating my titles and descriptions. What should I do?
    You guys could easily remove these proxy servers because they usually can't be cached in your system and just show up in the results with no cache available. A dead give away! Yahoo & Google are listing these pages at the top of the results for these titles so I'm not going to change them now just for Live search.

     

    Please get these two pages back into the Live search results and start removing sites that can't be cached. Thank You.

  • Hi,

     

    Are you still having problems with this? It is a fairly common blackhat technique. If you can provide the bad URLs I will look into it.

    Im having exactly the same problem and adittionally they have viruses

    The title was

    TamLa Ystävyysseura Ry / Hermandad Latinoamericana de Tampere AC

    The Search Tamla ry

     

    Pointing to http://tamla.selfip.org that was the domain, but because we got hijacked reason we shutted down the portal and there and got a new domain. www.tamla.eu

     

    We are a nonprofit organizaton and some of the search results are still pointing to the old server which we had set a 301 redirect to the right domain. whn following the links of the search results to see if they were updated found out that many links were on the same situation not only my sites.

     

    The pages that had been hijacked point to Hillary clinton campaing page, seemengly because is not so likely that Live Search drops it from the index.

    the evil full url is    standupuga*org/files/thumbs/comment-1282*htm  "I have masked the . on the domain and file ext with an asterisk for safety do not open the url if you dont have norton antivirus!!"

     

    Can you help ?

    Hi, I am having the same problem now and I'm wondering if there is a fix for this yet. 

     

    I search for example "microsoft" which displays a link to the page www.microsoft.ca/ws2008 but if I click on the properties of that link it shows it routed to a different IP + the url http://209.85.171.199/url?q=http://www.microsoft.ca/ws2008 

     

    How do I fix this? I have microsoft defender and AVG and neither software detects anything.

  • Hi I have the same problem

     

    Example:

    Search for "microsoft"

    Displays link for Microsoft Download Center

    If i right click the link and go to properties it shows address as http://209.85.171.199/url?q=http://www.microsoft.ca/ws2008

    and if I click on it it leads me to this url http://209.85.171.199/url?q=http://search.live.com/cashback

     

    How can I fix this? I have AVG and Microsoft Defender and neither of these pick up the problem.
