unwanted invisible links in source code...


Recommended Posts

Got a problem with my webpage, seems someone put some invisible links in the code there.

Changed passwords for webhost, ftp protocol, then uploaded clean files from PC. Files on webspace seem to be fine now, no more invisible links.

However when i view them in any web browser (after clearing cache) they still show up...

Here's the page, the links are all at the bottom of the source code (<!-- link ads start --><DIV style):


Any ideas how to get rid of those links?

Most odd especially if you resecured your webhost and ftp upload pw

Somehow the code is getting squirted afterwards - Have you contacted your host server support to get to the bottom of it?

allthebestmusic.net Seems very dodgy and the crafty unwanted embedded links in your page and other webpages would give them a big boost in search engine rankings and a semblance of respectability.


who seem reluctant to give their details away so you'll need to contact

Another thought - Is your website made from a downloaded template with any inbuilt scripts? - As this conceivably could make the ad html appear when the website is uploaded & live

Could you fire up golive on your home.site and preview the index.html file in your browser, and recheck the source code

Are you on a mac or pc?

If you've got the ads on two separately made websites (on the live index page) hosted on the same server - then it's likely as Other Means said to be something on the server side unwittingly or deliberately injecting the code.

More than a little likely from more digging to be your hosting company Servage Hosting - see below.

Contact your server support section to see if they can help track down and remove the cause or simply relocate your sites to a more secure server - if they can't help then I recommend esp for Joomla installs http://www.nativespace.co.uk/
