    Im seeing this on a few sites at the moment:

    Check out this sites backlinks in yahoo site explorer:

    reatailmenotdotcom

    Check out the back links.. all of them are not properly formated, and seem to be a hack

    /product_reviews.php/
    /xmlrpc.php/
    /robotst.xt/

    Any thoughts?

    you also can find this kind of backlinks for news site ( eg: google trends )
    looks like a virus/malware to me..
    but maybe someone have better explanation

    The hack of the misspelled domain.... isn't the wrong site, domain? retailmenot.com is the big one, retail not reatail.
