    Hi,

    I think my wp website has been hacked, but not sure.

    When I do a search for my website url (e.g. ''http://www.mywebsiteurl.org/'') Google returns the result as ''tinyurl.com/lctxauhg''

    Is this a hack?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Regards

    Colin

    What's your actual site URL?

    Hi czb1972,
    Did you checked in Wp Dashboard -> Setting -> General
    WordPress Address (URL) & Site Address (URL) are the same?

    You could also do a Wordfence scan, it should tell you if files have malicious code in them.

    lemonthirst, I have checked the urls in setting and all ok and correct.

    I have downloaded Wordfence and did a scan. Nothing found.

    So I still don't know what is wrong here. :(

    Well this is very odd, i have also done a sucuri sitecheck Sitecheck but i guess it is a false positive.

    Do you have any messages in the the Google Webmaster area regarding your site or have you established a 301 redirect of some sort recently?
    Also i would check the .htaccess file.

    Hope this will help you with your problem, if you can't find a solution creating a topic on the google webmasters forum might help.

    The site is quite OK - not hacked, no malware. Possibly you have used this URL (which is a tiny URL of your site) while submitting your site to Google. As suggested by lemonthirst above, go to your Google Webmaster Tools account and submit a new sitemap, also check if the same URL appears in your list of indexed pages.
