Google Adsense Got Hijacked

Wednesday 25 May 2005 @ 11:50 am

Last night around 11pm GMT+8, when I was recommending Google Adsense to one of my friends, I searched in Google for its URL. I found that the first link appeared in the search result was not,
instead, was.

Google Adsense

Coincidentally, JenSense blogged about “Google AdSense Site Hijacked” too.

Yes, the first result for “Google AdSense” and “AdSense” goes to, which if you click it, goes straight to the Google AdSense main index page. And if you watch the redirect fast enough, you can see the page sitting pretty with a PR9. The actual Google AdSense main page is a grey bar. The Google cache of the page also shows the Google AdSense index page.

Anyway, this is the first time I see Google program’s URL has been hijacked in its own search results. :D

Go check it out now, I believe this unusual rank won’t last for too long.

    I don’t think they will have the detail of our login, because JenSense said too, the website will do a redirection to the real Adsense page.

    So, I believe there won’t be any information transfered during the redirection until you enter your detail into the real Adsense page. :)
