Ranking for unrelated keywords

    I have a site that is ranking for completely unrelated keywords.
    SEMrush
    This started a few months ago when the site was hacked.

    It has since been cleaned but still gets hundreds of visitors a day for such keywords.

    Any ideas how to solve this?

    Funny! Some celebrity stuff from India I think. Not really my interest, I want to get rid of this traffic!

    You will need to go into your Google Webmasters account. And check out the keywords and backlinks. And remove the backlinks. If the backlinks are removed, it will take sometime for Google to see this and stop ranking you for them.

    Katie nailed it. Here is Google's recommendations for disavowing backlinks. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2648487?hl=en
