If unexpected keywords, such as “Sex”, “Acai Berry” or keywords you’re not targeting are showing in your keyword report, this could be a sign that your site has been hacked. It can also be due to comment spam that was approved and not moderated.
You can easily find out what keywords you’re ranking for, by registering or logging in to your Google account. Once you’re logged in, go My Account and click on Webmaster Tools.
Under Webmaster Tools:
- Click on our new look if you haven’t seen the new version of Google Webmaster Tools
- Click on the site that you want to review
- Click on keywords to view what keywords your site is targeting. You can also view the top search queries on the dashboard to see if anything may look strange
Note: Your site must be able to be crawled by the Googlebot.
If you have a blog that is dofollow (rel=follow), make sure you have a comment spam plugin such as WP-SpamFree or Akismet. We also recommend that you moderate all comments.
Akismet: This is the most popular and has been downloaded 1,207,328 times. Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not and lets you review the spam it catches under your blog’s “Comments” admin screen. You need a WordPress.com API key to use it.
WP-SpamFree Anti-Spam: An extremely powerful WordPress anti-spam plugin that eliminates blog comment spam, including trackback and pingback spam.
