    So, in all my experience with internet marketing, I have never came accross a situation like this. I'm not sure what to make of it, or how it was even done. Basically, in my noob days, I use to reupload youtube videos of screensavers, and then link to some dumb PPI affiliate link. Needless to say, I did not make much money. However, recently I have logged into my account to see that one of the links were changed to http://www.recordscreen.com/. I have never seen that site before, and I most definitely would never link to it, as it would not convert at all with the video's niche, and it isn't even an affiliate link. I remember that the link I used was "freescreensavers.us" or something like that.

    So I am just baffled now, trying to think of a possible explanation. Sure it could be a keylogger, but this is the only time I've had something of mine changed, so why would a keylogger change one stupid youtube video? I doubt any youtube staff would edit it, as the video is not very popular, and pretty common.

    This is the wierdist shit, and I am just ranting on about it, hoping someone can help me figure this out. I'm not worried about the account itself; it's an old unused account. I just would like to figure out what exactly happened.

    Any one have some suggestions?
