  • When I did a Google search for my name today, the first result was my blog, but after my footer text, I saw these spammy keywords for pills.
    Here’s a screenshot:

    I made some research as to what causes this and read in a blog that this is some kind of hack and the hacker possibly added code to the footer file in my theme that would add the spam links, but only for certain user-agents (i.e. Googlebot or Yahoo’s crawler). View-source with a normal web browser doesn’t show the links. I followed advice and found the spam words using view source on the Google cache. Here’s the screenshot (spam words link to a blogger called pete ashton):

    I check my footer.php but do not see any of these links. Does anyone know where I should look at (this hack was done on )? Many thanks in advance!
