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.
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??!!"
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.

This has been perplexing me for a while - has something changed or have I just gone ga-ga?Being in a different time zone from most Hubbers, I rely on being able to click the "Your" button to catch up with who's posted on threads since I commented.Recently I've been missing comments...

I have noticed a few questions asked by newbies that have been asked before and so many times it is probably impossible to count. I have noticed comments of annoyance at the same questions being asked yet again. I am sure at some point I will have been here long enough to get every bit as annoyed.I...

I noticed a pin to one of my hubs was blocked (likely due to redirecting since the other reasons don't seem to apply.)The pin in question:https://www.pinterest.com/pin/20618110770864293/Note it takes you to hubpages.com/hub/Castles-in-France which will redirect to my subdomain. However, Pinterest...
