Wrong language appearing when googling website

Postby Craig+ » Sun Oct 30, 2016 9:31 am

A client has been trying to find our Australian based Jigsaw Puzzles business by googling 'personalized jigsaw puzzles' however it comes up in Japanese script as follows:

Code: Select all

[b][b]【送料無料 長靴】GARMIN(ガーミン)アウトフロントマウント 999214 ...
http://www.jigsawpuzzlesaustralia.com.au/index.php/about Translate this page
Edgeを前方へオフセットマウントすると共にVIRBも併せて取り付け可能となるスマートなマウントです。 【対応機種】 VIRB-J Elite VIRB-J Edge810J Edge800J White[/b][/b]

How do I get the script back to English as this actually looks like the puzzles aren't Made in Australia and is damaging our business?

I've checked the backend of the website which says we already have the latest Joomla! version, 2.5.16. However I see that the latest version is 3.6?

Will updating the software get rid of this issue? If so how can it be done manually?

thanks

Craig

Clearly you have an issue. The latest version of the now unssupported 2.5.x series is 2.5.28.

The latest version of Jooma is 3.6.4.

Thanks apsilva however the site says I've already updated the latest version and there are no updates available.
Is there any other way to update site?
