    I did an external link check on my site and was shocked to see the following listed: I can not find these keywords used on my site or links? Please help

    Take a look at the source code from your home page. Immediately after the closing head tag:

    <body class="home blog custom-background">

    <div class="blogup2">

    I see a large quantity of spammy external links and content inside this div

    A quick scan over at Securi identifies some additional issues/locations to look at. http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/?scan=mtnweekly.com

    Some references to get you started. Apologies for the boilerplate-ish appearance of the info..

    Thanks Clayton, this is a bit over my level of expertise. Know anyone I can hire to fix this?

    Thanks Michael,

    Looking forward to see what you can do! Excited to work with you again and get this thing resolved. Our traffic dropped from around 1,000 google visitors a day to around 100. Not sure if this is related but it's a start!
