My hub 'Learn shorthand writing online' (http://hubpages.com/hub/Learn-shorthand-writing-online) ranks fourth on Google under the searcj 'learn shorthand writing online'. But when I clicked today for the first time it redirected to somebody else's page. Traffic to this hub has also dropped by half recently. What's going on? Why is this?
I haven't a clue about what you are talking about. I opened a new tab to Google search and found your hub listed. When I clicked on the link, it took me directly to your hub.
By any chance there is spyware/adware installed on your system ? I know two brands (freeze.net/starware) that are modifying search results to relevant advertisers site if installed on desktop. Check if your antivirus/spyware cleaner detects any such activity, or it could be just a glitch.
It took me to the page the link you gave. No redirection from here. May be its a geo thing?
Thanks for all the replies, they're really helpful. It must be then that there's some sort of adware on my computer as other sites have redirecting, too. I ran an antivirus programme last week which appeared to have cleared any viruses but I'll run everything again.
Thanks again, Rick

I apologize if this question has been answered elsewhere; I could not find it so I'm asking here.If a lenshub (a hub that is a transferred lens) is unpublished, does the URL redirect go away?

Interesting article! I wish that HubPages had read this before acquiring Squidoo. (And I am a former Squid). Getting penalties from 301 redirects and shutting down "content farms" could...
