Support » Fixing WordPress » Hacked Link Description

  • Hi there,

    recently my company page was hacked.
    If you enter our company name into google search form, the engine displays a wrong Link description: “Human hair extension” and “Human Hair Extensions Wigs, Clip in Remy Hair Extensions”
    One of the to the links even lead to a different website. Google displays “This site may be hacked”.

    I followed the google recommendation and checked the htaccess. But it seems okay. Also the .txt files. Does any one have an idea what went wrong?

    Best and thank you!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Get a fresh cup of coffee, take a deep breath and carefully follow this guide. When you’re done, you may want to implement some (if not all) of the recommended security measures.

    If you’re unable to clean your site(s) successfully, there are reputable organizations that can clean your sites for you. Sucuri and Wordfence are a couple.

    Hi,
    While you may have cleared the compromise within your website, a number of steps need to be completed in relation to Google.com

    Google is a search engine and you can learn more about how they have marked your website as comprised by logging into your Google Seach Console (GSC). I recommend doing a few searches for topics like “how do I log into my google search console” to start.

    Once you have logged into your GSC, this page at Google provides a nice guide on what to look for in order to clear your Google reputation online, https://developers.google.com/webmasters/hacked/docs/request_review

    I hope this helps.
