    Let me start off by saying I have done some extensive direct blasting to one of my sites with scrapebox. Mostly these blasts were done for testing purposes(rankings don't matter to me on this site) but many of the backlinks are now live and active.

    When I visit this site from my home computer, using chrome, I will sometimes get forwarded/redirected to some kind of site that is full of ads. Norton pops up that it blocked a "Web Attack: Exploit Kit Variant 11" when this happens.

    My question is if this is being caused by my website or my browser/computer? Is there anyway to double check my site to make sure my visitors are not being redirected like I am?

    If it's only happening with this site it does look like it's a re-direct from the site.
    I'm no expert on this but I assume if it was browser based you'd get it all the time.

    You possibly got infected, always run Malware checker before posting comments.

    Clean your PC with "Malware Anti-Bytes", etc.
    Lookup startup with CMD -> msconfig
    etc.

    If anyone's wondering, my sites were infected. I went to the update tab of Wordpress and clicked reinstall, and they are clean now!
