    I'm getting search traffic from Ask according to Statpress for Disney coloring pages and stuff like that. The site is promoting dating so nothing to do w/ Disney and none of that is even mentioned on my site. This has been going on for a while now. It's just 1 site and I have other sites on same hosting account and this isn't happening on them. Is there some script some asshole installed that I have to remove? The pages being seen are all 404 pages.

    Something similar happened to me. What I did was I took the exact url it was landing on (a non existing page on my site) and created a gocode for it using the plugin to an offer landing page. It stopped after 2-3 days.

    Are you kidding? That would probably have been the logical thing to do so no I didn't. ;) Just checked last 2 search terms and nowhere on 1st 12 pages for either.

    Hmmm I was thinking of doing a 404 redirect (never did it in my life but seen it mentioned a few times). So I can take those funky kdk-blah-blah-blah.htm pages and redirect them w/ gocodes? I guess you learn something new everyday, going to try to figure it out. Thanks.
