Block a site from linking to me in Google Blog Search? (3 posts)

    I recently did a google search on something I'd blogged about and found that the title of my page refers to pharmaceutical drugs.. no clue why

    Example (top result): https://www.google.com/#hl=en&sclient=psy-ab&q=will+an+evga+560ti+448+classified+fit+in+a+storm+scout&oq=will+an+evga+560ti+448+classified+fit+in+a+storm+scout&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_l=hp.3...471l11232l0l11364l54l53l0l1l1l0l199l5305l30j23l54l0.&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=5dcdbc91238549d7&biw=1280&bih=831

    After logging in to my blog to see if I had spam comments or something I noticed that I had a TON of incoming links from the same blog all having to do with pharmaceuticals:
    https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=utf-8&q=link:http://therantsandraves.com/&tbm=blg&tbs=sbd:1&output=rss

    My question: if I have an analytics and other Google accounts tied to my website - is there a way I can block this site from returning results in "links to my blog?" Is this what's causing the title of my page to change in Google? Do I have a virus or something I need to be aware of? I'm running the latest WordPress version.

    In looking at my site in a direct Google search I see that there's also prefaced words about pharmaceuticals leading the description in all results that link to my site:
    https://www.google.com/#hl=en&sclient=psy-ab&q=therantsandraves&oq=therantsandraves&aq=f&aqi=g-sv1g-v1&aql=&gs_l=hp.3..0i10i15j0i15.16657l18701l1l18873l16l14l0l1l1l2l210l1288l10j3j1l14l0.&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=5dcdbc91238549d7&biw=1280&bih=831

    What can I do to get rid of this?

    update: I updated my wordpress to 3.3.1 and found the notification in my Google Webmaster tools. I fetched it as Google Bot and everything seems ok so possibly simply updating it helped remove the malicious code. Anyone else had this issue?
