"Are They Stealing Your Search Engine Traffic?"

I highly recommend this article by Will Bontrager. It begins:

"Your .htaccess file can be used to redirect traffic from search engines to a thief's web site.

If your site has been hacked in this way, then when someone finds you in a search engine and clicks on a link to go to your site, they are taken to the thief's site, instead.

The links in the search result go to your site, just like they're supposed to. But, your site redirects the visitor to the traffic thief's site."

As usual, Will gives you both the problem and the solution. Every online business owner - in fact, everyone who owns a web site needs to be aware of this!
