    Some weird shit is happening today. I've searched for my own site at google today, and clicked my url, and got redirected to google.com instantly.

    Why am I not getting redirect to my own site? I noticed no traffic at all in GA today from Google search.

    What the heck google is doing? Some coding errors? Or intentional?

    Is this some new shit?

    Anyone got the same issues before?

    It is only happening to one of my sites, others are fine, but nothing like this happened before.

    Did not have any redirect setup on my site, nor in webmaster tool. As in, I didn't even do anything, unless the site can redirect on its own?

    Get a browser extension that allows you to change the useragent and change it to GoogleBot.

    Then visit your site directly, does it happen then?

    If so you've being hacked/cloaked

    Ok, I searched using yahoo, and apparently the same issue happens.

    Update: Ok issue found. Site infected with malware. Dammit.

    Looks like google is too much in love with themselves they won't even let you go
