    I have created 30 or 40 pages of my website. but yesterday I search is google with site:mywebsitename.com and it shows 3000+ links are indexed in Google. when I check some links every link is created like [ mywebsite.com/Radsport-Salomon-ADV-Skin-5-Set-schwarz-Rucksack-Trail-L-w493244/] and all links are redirected some other website.
    SEMrush
    My questions are how is it possible? Cause I've my website access only. So how someone can create those types of links for my website and indexed it too.

    Is my website hacked?

    Yes, you've been hacked - either by using a theme or plugin that was designed to do that, or because it has a security flaw.

    The cleanup job will depend on just how they got in.

    It could also be a simple security exploit in a shared hosting environment. When I used HostGator shared this would happen all the time.

    Thanks for your reply Sarahk, so what should I do now, to get rid of this problem. How do I remove all those links that were created automatically?

    Thanks, Netstar for your reply. Most of the people are using shared hosting, so what will be the your suggestions? what should I do now?

    First step: Reinstall the wordpress and the template and see if the links are still visible. If they are then you need to find where in the database they are stored.

    Turn debug mode on and see if there are any errors popping up.

    Remove the plugins one by one to see if they are adding the links.

    I would change web servers. Go with a VPS.

    You have to use a paid theme because free themes contains Virus in it.

    A sweeping statement that is completely ridiculous.

    Mostly these issues happen when you use wordpress CMS website. Clear the whole thing and start with a new theme and must be in a secured server using https instead of using http. May be this will work.
