Flickr Gallery
Spammy blog title for Googlebot only when Flickr Gallery is active (1 post)

    I'm using an unmodified version of Flickr Gallery on my WordPress 3.2.1 site. The Google bot sees a spammy title for my blog when Flickr Gallery is enabled, but not when this plugin is disabled.

    I verified this on my site with the following code snippet. Note that as I write this the plugin is disabled so my blog title appears correctly. With the plugin enabled I see "Buy (name of drug) Online No Prescription" as the title of my blog.

    curl -A 'Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)' 'http://weill.org' | less

    Has this happened with anyone else? Google was kind enough to alert me to a "notice of suspected hacking" when the above occurred, but after fixing many such "hacks" I was able to isolate the issue to this plugin.
