Hi everyone, I met a situation that I have not seen before and I
really need some help and advice here.

I have rank a website for more than a year, and only
recently, I found out something weird, the ranking in
Google stays, but when I click on the Google result,
instead of going to the website, it goes to a different page.

Below are some keywords in Google that seems to be
hacked or stolen.

My website is aluminiumwindowsanddoors dot com

Please use Google using Google Singapore see the hacked results

Keyword: aluminium windows
Google Plus Result #1

Keyword: aluminium doors
Google #3

Keyword: aluminium bi-fold door
Google #3

Anyone knows how to resolve it, please let me know,
much appreciated

    I had this problem. It took Hostgator 7-8 hours to clean all the malware, but it did the job.

    Um, it could be hacked but your site looks like a parked page.

    I did a quick domain lookup as well and your nameserves seem to be pointing to your host (UK2) and the parking page has content from them. Maybe the configuration isn't proper... or maybe you are hacked.

    The best way to resolve this would be to get in touch with the host.

    I have seen this before as well, contact your host and they should easily be able to take care of this for you.

      Since you are in singapore and want people to use google singapore,
      I assume you actually are referring to
      aluminiumwindowsanddoors.com.sg

      That site is indeed hacked.

      The simple fix is for your host to just upload a backup and
      clean it up.

      If they did not do regular backups, shame on them. But you
      should have regular backups yourself.

      Word to the wise. Do not rely on your host for backups.
      Download one. Makes it very easy to get the site backup.
      I once blew it and had to use the wayback machine to
      get the code for my pages. That is a brute force way, but
      it does work.

      If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

    I am also sure that your site has been hacked. Google results cannot be hacked.
