    If you search "diablo 3 best monk boots" the first website to come up is diablo-guides nothing crazy, an SEO'd website. If you click the link it directs you to a completely different website selling a D3 guide, but if you enter the first websites url it takes you to the page normally. So my question is, how is it possible for them to redirect you only if you are coming from a search engine?

    Check out half the results for Viagra in Google and you will find the same thing. Hacked, cloaked, etc. Google is more concerned that you may have bought a blog post instead of removing criminals from the SERPS. I guess that's what happens when you get paid to play with stuffed animals everyday and don't actually have to earn a living to feed your family. Or maybe those Viagra sites are paying someone on the inside to turn a blind eye to this type of activity?

    Shame on Google for attacking many small businesses while allowing criminals to control the SERPS.

    Thanks a lot! I didn't realize you could specify a request based on where it comes in from that's great to know.
