    Hello everybody,

    When I google my website ( "wizims.com" ) I used to see ~ 3k results. Yesterday I googled it to find out I have over 6k results (7k+ today)

    So I tried to figure out what's happening, and I found this shit..

    Try to google : site:wizims.com

    You will see thousands of search pages with numbers queries :yell:

    I just blocked my search pages from getting indexed from the robots.txt (yeah, I'm stupid to make that just now)

    Anyway, my question is, how the fuck did that happen? Could be someone trying to ruin it for me?

    You've probably been hacked bro. If not, then somehow your search function got crazy, and spilled all the search queries open.

    Yeah I believe someone made this.. interesting.

    I'm getting weird stuff there :

    1) Suddenly the "most visitors online" changed from 60 to 560. (Like they came at once and quit).

    2) I recently got this as a reply:

    From: YourMother
    Comment:
    Hey stupid f#ck stop spamming other blogs with your horse shit or we'll notify your provider. Last warning.

    Though I didn't spam any other blog :O Seriously I didn't, at all!

    Okay, I'll tell you what happened to me.

    1. My site got hacked, and someone injected 22k (!!!) pages directly in my WP DB.
    2. This created pages like site.com/index.php?id=xxxx (xxxx=some no).
    3. Each of these pages redirected to a homework-completing site
    4. Then they blasted these redirect pages to 100's of k's of forums using xRumer

    And all of this happened within 2 days apparently!

    Wow that sucks man! My search results are not redirecting to any other website, but it's still annoying.

    Add me on Skype buddy @ Wiz.IMS

    Added you, but won't be able to talk before Thursday (tomorrow).

    BTW, you might wanna setup a redirect from the site.com/search/ to the homepage. That'd be useful both for Google love and the users.

    your website is very slow, not sure why. So maybe it's true that someone is hijacking your site through various methods..

    Why don't you get in touch with your hosting provider? If you get a complaint, at least they will know that some weird shit is going on and you're not the person who is responsible for it.

    Do you have any analytics installed so you can see where the visitors are being referred from? You might be able to find sites where your links got spammed on.

    Without taking a look at your site or the SERPs, it sounds like a duplicate content problem.

    Duplicate content is any time your page content can be accessed via multiple URLs.

    The easiest solution to avoid this is to install the canonical url tag on your pages.

    But, since you've already got so many dups indexed, you should set up 301 redirects on your server.
