    Google Hijacked?
    Google adsense hijacked in the Google serps.

    Wonder if this'll wake them up.

    Wonderful post!!!!!!!!!

    "Of course, there is just far too much irony in the fact a Google program's URL has been hijacked in its own search results."

    Complain to Google and it falls on almost deaf ears. Have them get victimized and all of the sudden a problem is recognized and real. Good thing the cheating as$H0Ies know no limits and bounds - it always becomes their undoing.

    So what does all-in-one-business.c0m benefit from this since there is a redirect to the adsense page? Is this to get name recognition of their website?

    It's a little TOO brash. I wonder if the hijacker was trying to force Google to admit that hijacking is a big problem that they need to address. IOW, it's only a minor problem as long as it's not YOUR problem, right Google? Well now it's your problem. Whatcha gonna do about it?

    I see that this guy is able to hijack the PR on his adsense page (PR 9).
    His main site page is still PR 5.
    I am still not seeing how this site owner benefits.

    He got me looking at his dopey site but I had to take note of his url and manually enter it. This seems to be a clear case of trademark infringement or domain squatting since he would be getting traffic using google's name in a deceptive manner.

    Not this cycle, but the next. It happened to one of my sites.

    It took a month after installing the <BASE HREF> fix, but my site moved back up.
