    I just got sandboxed for some reason, so I decided to check out the webmaster tools. It says that the most common keyword google found while crawling my site was viagra. My site has nothing to do with viagra or anything even close to it. Some of the other keywords are:
    prescription
    20mg
    dosage

    I do have some keywords related to the site though.
    How do I fix this?

    I think you are facing Google penalty, please review your site carefully.

    Just checked again. The viagra keyword has full bar in significance and 1038 occurrences . Cialis is the second most significant keyword with more than half full bar and 595 .occurrences

    I cant find those words anywhere on my site

    Is it possible that they were there some time ago but got deleted. Google tends to take a month or longer till the keyword list is updated.
    If you're really sure there is no problem on your site file a reconsideration request, if not try and post something in the Google Forums. They might help you

    Did you register this domain new? Or pick it up from someone?

    No, the site isnt about anything related to medicine. I also have akismet which has blocked all the comments before they were even posted on the site.

    No, the domain is new and registered by myself.

    You got hacked...Funny thing is I saw a video of Matt Cutts talking about this. He said if your site loses serps and you check webmaster tools and find viagra or other highly spammed keywords in your common terms you are in trouble. You have to remove the files that were uploaded to your server or database and send in a reconsideration forum.

    Thanks, will do that. How can I protect myself from these hacks? I'm using the latest wordpress version and a good password.

    choose the option to fetch as googlebot and you'll see what google sees

    it's likely that in your .htaccess file there's something that is saying that when the google bot hits your site to show the malware version, while when normal people hit it to show the regular version

    you can google those terms to find out more.
