Thread: Linked to Adult Site from Google?

  1. #1

    Default Linked to Adult Site from Google?

    It's happened both from a google link and from a url typed into the address bar; I click/type it in, it looks like it's working, and then it goes to a porn site/ad.

    Any ideas what is causing this? I'm sure PD doesn't have anything to do with it, but I don't really want to hop on and have someone else (wife, daughter) think I'm doing something I'm not...

    It actually happened to me. It wasn't an adult site, or it may have been, but I never saw it, because my Anti-Virus blocked it, and it did re-direct me to a different site, but there were no boobies

    I just clicked the PD link on Google and it happened (may have typed in the full website URL in the address bar, but regardless I wasn't taken to PD), and usually I always have PD open in a tab but my Chrome was X'd out of for some reason so PD wasn't up

    I remember someone else posted about this on the main forum a few months ago and they basically just were laughed at/not taken serious by the other posters, IIRC (Hell I may have been one of them, because I just figured someone accidentally had Adware on their PC, )

    I only surf with my phone, but yeah I get that option if I type pacers digest as a search.

    I know it was responded to once before by able. There is a hijack of pacers digest via google. Don't use google to connect or search and you're fine.

    I would highly recommend using tapatalk if you are on a phone or tablet rather than using a browser.

    I tried this out the other day and was taken to an "Adult Friend Finders" site add, with a full screen topless image in the background. I think I'll be a bit more careful to type into the URL window and not the Google window next time.
