    You need to give us more details than that.

    Sorry for your luck but I am assuming you are the only one with this issue.

    As far as I know it's a hack of the wp-config and there is no official fix so far, it even works with the latest WP version. It redirects all traffic from google, but just from google, if you have bookmarked your site and access it, everything looks normal.

    It's a widespread problem at the moment and certainly so single incident.

    Look in your .htaccess, it has a referrer based redirect if you were hacked as far as I know.

    Damned, I just checked all my blogs. Found one that had some weird encrypted javascript code in the wp-blog-header.php file. It was causing a redirect. I just deleted all files and did a new wordpress installation. This blog did 500 uniques average / day in may. Most traffic coming from google, last 2 weeks only 50 uv's/day. I feel really gutted about this, I've spent a lot of time recently trying to write some good unique content on this blog.
