Strange loading behaviour

For a few days, when one of my sites loads it is showing a "waiting for" message refering to a site that is nothing to do with mine. A couple of people have also told me that they were mysteriously diverted to other sites - one porn and one embroidery (!). I checked with my ISP and they checked but could see anything at the time. It's still doing so tonight on www.the-confidant.info. What do you reckon is the best way for me to track this down myself?

Thanks, Graham

You may have been hacked or one of the sites you get ads from could have been hacked

You could ty using the 'wordfence' plugin to scan your site as a start

Thanks Juggledad

Wordfence seems a really useful plugin - thanks for the pointer there! It found one problem, which is apparently a common one, so I've fixed that.

The problem with the waiting issue is still there though. I don't carry ads per se, but there's a couple of plugins that may be triggering this, so I'll try disabling them.

Thanks again.
Graham
