Whats with the sudden spam on this forum ?

Just logged in and noticed keywords in our posts are linking into spam sites.
Is this something new or a new source of driving away traffic ? :twisted:

Looks like Inspection News now.

i have not noticed

Just started then.
Go The first post and rest your mouse on the blue highlighted words (countinuing education) http://www.nachi.org/forum/f2/announcement-recallchek-user-international-association-certified-home-inspectors-members-79485/

I had not noticed it here. Are these the same as the spam emails for watches and clocks?

What browser are you using? If chrome, go to extensions and disable the extension that doesn’t look familiar to you. I’ll try to find which one it was.

There are No blue words that say continuing education in that post.

Are saying that Recall Check and The Inspector Services Group is nothing but SPAM?

Bob, looks like you accidentally downloaded something that has changed your browser settings.

Like others have said, this is not an issue with the forum. Sometimes when you install “search toolbars” or other add-ons/extensions, they can do this. What browser are you using? I can send you instructions about how to disable any plugins that may be spamming you.

Yep it was a chrome extension.
Turns out the darn thing follows you to all your devices.
Great little home page setup with custom tabs but not worth blue links on keywords with ads that pop up.
So do not install this one at the market…https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/awesome-new-tab-page/mgmiemnjjchgkmgbeljfocdjjnpjnmcg
