Google search Porn Redirect

Post by dawghair » Tue Apr 19, 2016 7:30 pm

If you go directly to any of my sites.. it's clean.. no problem..
But if you google my site and click on a link, get redirected to a porn site.

for example if you go to it is fine

Put if you do a google search for Green Light Fitness in Superior Wi you get a redirect.

Anyone know the best way to fix this, it is happen on several of my sites.

Have you tried searching from a different browser, have you tried resetting your router? Check it out on a different computer.

Make sure it is not a local infection!
