Click here - Bold Interactive.com has the scoop! -
Buddy of mine (Cary Cartter - Write in presidential candidate) emailed me to let me know he was being redirected when he went to visit my website. I figured it was his browser's cookies and cache but it went much deeper than that.
Originally it seemed to be Blogmad.net was at fault but a company that was utilized by Blogmad has been taken over by nasty people at a place called Adbazz.
- Bold Interactive.com reports:
Some business owners got a shocking surprise today when their websites were being redirected to an Adbaaz.com URL. Former customers of Websourced (also known as Keyword Ranking and Marketsmart Interactive) are being redirected to this URL if an old tracking code still exists on their sites.
Websourced eventually abandoned the project but this code has remained on many of client’s web sites with no adverse affect until now.
Find the code (See boldinteractive.com's posting - Click on the link above) delete the code and you will get your website back. - Good luck! - I deleted my blogmad source code but that didn't quite do it. Off to find the problem and really fix it so you can read this.
Update: I found another little bit of Blogmad code on my sidebar. Cleared it out and no more redirect. Hooray!
Wrote to blogmad.net to direct their attention to the Bold Interactive posting (liinked above) and was told the address I have is no longer used or read. Have to go to the site and take a ticket on their complaint page. Went to their site and SHAZAMMMM! A redirect to adbazz.com - So it goes.
