Page Hijack Exploit: 302, redirects and Google

Last week, I was working on a SEO report for a client and came across several very strange listings for him at Google. The title and descriptions were correct, but the URL of the page was wrong. Wrong as in, not the clients site at all! It appeared that our work had been hijacked. After a lot of work and research, we finally discovered what had taken place.

It’s a dirty little secret at some of the major search engines that they have kept quiet for a long time. The problem is an error generated by the search engine while indexing sites. The bigger problem is that some unscrupulous types have found a way to exploit the error to redirect a page to their own site. Please read the story at this link and take the necessary precautions on your site.
