I saw one of my websites in a list of refer spams sites. I don’t even know what it is, much less how it is done. I read above that it most often comes from a Windows box with a virus… That sounds like my server. I did have some problems with viruses.

But I also saw one of my websites that is on a paid hosting service as well. Can someone point me to a more detailed discussion on this subject?

The reason I ask is that I saw one of the sites mentioned above listed in Google results for a keyword phrase that had ‘spammer” within it. Someone had sent Google a list of sites that they said were spammers and the list had been indexed by Google and there was my site.

Is this reason for Google to drop my site or lower my rank? Any advice or feedback would be welcome. Send to “robert_mcc001 -=at=- hotmail . com”

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Robert McCulloch
