sitemaps hacked??

I am a web designer. Last night a client emailed me some strange results when she looked up her site in google. If you do a search depending how you get back some variation of this in the sitemap description of her website: nudecelebs sex porn free porn sex porn free.
Or: hairy sex porn free. It will also look different in other search engines some not showing it at all (yahoo) and others using variations of the words.

I can't figure out how this is happening. I did a google search of "hairy sex porn free" with quotations and it showed up a lot for legit websites in their sitemap descriptions.

Those words are not embedded in the html. How is this happening? I have emailed google and the ISP still waiting to hear.

I can see what you are talking about however I'm not sure what's causing it. I'm interested to know though but I did notice it's only on the home page in google, other pages are ok.

it only displays that information on islandgrocery.net however the full url at www.islandgrocery.net is ok.

only thing i can think of is someone doing a 302 redirect hijack on the site at some point. not even sure that would cause that to happen, but maybe?

Looks like a classic 302-redirect URL-hijack to me.

Google said they had fixed that problem more than a year ago.

[OK, I was wrong. Matt Cutts confirms the correct answer below.]

You might want to ask reddoormedia the following questions:

- Why are there links to reddoormedia without anchor text in them?
- Where is the meta description? You don't have one.
- Why is there no redirect from non-www to www on the site?
- Have they got any clue what semantic markup is all about?

"Looks like a classic 302-redirect URL-hijack to me."

Nope, not at all. To me, it looks like this webhost is cloaking. Then including links to porn on the cloaked page that is served to Googlebot. Neonblitz, this is just me speaking my personal opinion. My personal opinion is that if you find out your webhost is cloaking, monkeying with your content, and adding porn links to your page, you'll want to think about whether that webhost is treating you with the respect you deserve.

Alternatively, if your webhost claims that they weren't deliberately cloaking, but were "hacked" somehow, is that still a webhost that's doing a good job for you?

try this

type into google with quotation marks: "hairy sex porn free"

Now look at the list of sites it brings up. This seems to be going on in many places and with many variations. So I doubt it's just my ISP who I have been using for years and have many clients with. But maybe...I did email them and they said it was a Google issue.

To be clear, it's not your ISP. What Matt is saying is that your web hosting company appears to be adding this content to your pages.

See this article:
http://blog.searchenginewatch.com/blog/051007-084336

It explains the concept more. You need to ask your web hosting company if they are doing this.

Note that for Island Grocery, they are not using a noarchive tag yet the page itself is not being shown as a cached version. If that's the case, then were is the tag? Answer, Googlebot appears to be shown a page that's different than what you or I are seeing.

Thanks for adding the correct answer Matt. I did not go looking for cloaking, as, well, who the heck cloaks on a local country store in the middle of freakin' nowhere? I did see something else that looked like a 302 hijack very recently, and assumed this was yet another; but obviously you have all the cool tools to look much deeper into things.

Neonblitz, it's not your ISP, it's the webhost. Either they're doing something malicious, or it's possible that e.g. your cpanel was hacked.
