Hi! -

Its the darndest thing. When you type into the search bar www.cwmount.com, the correct website pulls up. This business owner bought that particular domain from Go Daddy. When I do a search for CW Mount in Tipton, IA or any variation of the full business name, C.W. Mount Community Center & Banquet Facility, the information below pops up:

Viagra For Hard Erection. EXTRA LOW PRICES
www.cwmount.com/

Bonus 10 free pills, discounts and FREE SHIPPING. Viagra For Hard Erection. Canadian Prescriptions Drugs. Viagra For Hard Erection. Buy generic and brand ...
About viagra generic viagra ... · ‎Ed non prescription viagra · ‎Try 10 mg cialis


When you DO click the website through there, it goes to a viagra pharmacy. Has anyone else experienced this or have a solution?

Please let me know,
Thanks! - Chelsea Jolly

Entering www.cwmount.com directly into the browser URL bar:



Searching with google.com for business name:

Google is still showing some old pages and Titles in a site search. You will need to have Google recrawl the site so that it updates it's database.

Have you verified the site in Search Console?

The site has definitely been hacked (or was hacked at one point). Good hacks don't always show themselves to every visitor of the site so they are hard to detect.

If you have recently cleaned the site/server, then these may be leftover hacked pages from prior. However the bad pages are showing as recently cached from a few days ago:



If you have not recently cleaned the server, I would get on that asap before they continue to spread. You'll want to also check Google Search Console and make sure there aren't any other "owners" attached to the site and extra sitemaps filled with the bad pages.

Weird.

I'm just not seeing that at all. All I get are listings for the correct site:

Hmmm... the fine print.

And yet if I click on that link, it goes to the correct site, not a viagra site.

All the viagra links that I tested either go to a good page or a 404. It's possible that Google did not update the info yet from an older hack.

Try to update sitemap and resend it to Google Search Console.

One thing I've done in the past is get a list of hacked URLs (GSC's 404 report is good for this) and then set them to return a 410 error.
