I started a Wordpress blog a few months ago. It's a book review site. Lately, I've been noticing in the comments section that I've been getting a lot of what is probably spam. Some of these comment praise the site but link back to commercial sites that have nothing to do with books. I "mark as spam", and get rid of them.
I also get some "comments" that are just plain gibberish, and make no sense at all. I immediately delete those.
This morning I got a comment praising the site, but said that he was having trouble viewing it on IE. Well, I use Firefox exclusively, but I do have IE as a backup on my computer.
Imagine my shock and surprise when I went on IE and found that I could not access my site. All I kept getting is a "website restore error". I'm starting to think that my site has been hacked. Needless to say, I'm very upset about this.
I am not super-technical, so, is there anyone out there that can help me? Any and all serious advise will be appreciated. Thank you, in advance.
