    This is really odd, I have an old website we build for a client years ago, that has suddenly dropped in the rankings, and when you find their listing
    (still at the top of page one in Yahoo, but dropped back to page 14 in google) it shows the title from a french blog about womens clothes!
    The website is a hand coded old html site, ive looked to see if the site has been hacked and an .htaccess file has been added or a redirect added to the code,
    but I cant find anything.

    Any ideas how this could have been done, or what I can do about it?
    If you click the link in Yahoo, it takes you to the french site, and in Google it takes you to the actual site, if you enter the url in a browser it goes to the correct site...?

    What do you think?

    well first thought was a htaccess but you checked that so have you run it through mxtoolbox it should give you a dns test to see what name servers and if your dns is pointing correctly. My next question is have you tried on multiple computer to rule out a redirect virus on the machine you are on?

    It is showing up in the yahoo SERPS pointing that domain to the wrong site, & also in the Google SERPS showing the title & description from the foreign site...

    Just this on the DNS tool box :

    Local NS list does not match Parent NS list
    89.200.141.238 was reported locally, but not by the parent
    217.118.137.218 was reported locally, but not by the parent


    Name Servers are on the Same Subnet
    78.129.162

    The site when you click the serp listing in yahoo now takes you to a different French site!

    Another detail that might help is that other pages from the site in the SERPS don't go to the wrong site, they go to the correct pages of the right site, it is only the link to the homepage in google & yahoo that take you to the wrong site???

    Just to clarify, if I type the URL in to a browser it loads the correct site, the redirect only happens in Google & yahoo

    just to clarify, I finally found some injected code hidden in the homepage and another page on the site....
    Sorted now...

    What is the best way to get the search engines to update quickly and remove the french title and description from the serps?
