    I've been redirected to this site twice while using the Hubpages forums. http://asnews.com.sg/ - is this a rogue advert? It has happened on two different computers - so not an issue my end AFAIK

      Sorry to hear about these ads.

      This forum thread has the details that are needed to identify and address problematic ads.

        Hi, Matthew--

        Luckily, this has not happened to me, however, I read the thread to which you refer above, and I understand all of the instructions save #5.  WTH is a "clickstring??!!"

          It is a unique string of characters related to an ad. You can use the inspect tool in Firefox in order to try to find it. Their are instructions for using Inspect in that forum thread.

        Matthew, sorry, I'm not sure which forum pages I was on. Both times it was in the forum though.

        Also, there is no clickstring (or one I'm fast enough to see, anyway). Both times it just automatically redirected, without me doing anything.

    Looks like it's coming from AdSense. Here's a very unhappy thread about it:  https://productforums.google.com/forum/ … mDdMny8ARE

    Still happening, and more often now. Does not even require an advert to be above the fold. Just randomly redirects.
