Google Custom Search ?

 

If I copy and paste the first web site it takes me to IObit forum. If I copy and paste the second web site I get the same damn spam sites I was getting when someone loaded up my email with spam.--garybear http://forums.iobit.com/showthread.php?t=5744

 

Do you mean if you paste the address [noparse]http://forums.iobit.com/showthread.php?t=5744[/noparse] in the Google Custom Search you get the third screenshot (Print page) as a result ?

I tried it and got the same result as you.

 

That Google Custom search has never worked here at IObit forum and doesn't work at most other places I have tried it, I don't know why but it is nearly always a mess :sad:

 

All the best, woz of oz

Hi Okie

If you must copy and paste a webside - do it in Notepad to avoid getting all the links embedded on the webside transferred to your computer.

Or use the command print and save it as a .pdf or an .xps file in the folder you use for these things.

Notepad can not be used for links.

Word can, but you can choose to only save the text there too at the moment of insertion.

Cheers

Hi Okie,

 

I have written similar in another thread replying to you. Close firefox without saving, clean the cache, open the Browser again.

You have mentioned that in THIS post too, please keep it in same thread.

It is Google not Firefox, taking into account only the thread #.

In Google box, a forum post # address does not work (finds all the similar numbers.), it should be words, title, etc.

 

Cheers.

I'm sorry but I don't understand, Okie. Now don't get mad at me, I'm just trying to help you out.

 

If I got this right, you are copy/pasting forum links into a Google search, as we can see in your screenshots ? I tried here and got similar results : not identical because my Google preferences are set for my region, but I do have a few of the links that you have. Now, I don't understand why you would paste forum links into a Google search box...

 

I can't see any bad links in your screenshots... or in my search results

Sorry Okie, I get it now.

 

I went to one of those sites but didn't understand the language so I just looked around and left. This time, I went to one of them and clicked on a few links lol. Lady Sonia ? Nasty.... so now I understand.

 

I'm no Google expert, so anyone can jump in with more info if they have it. The way I see it : when you copy/paste a forum link into a Google search box, you are feeding way too much stuff (too many key words) into the search, so Google can't find anything relevant to what you are asking, and it throws weird results back at you. I'm getting the same results here (almost the same). Only a Google expert could tell us why we are getting those results.

 

Now, back to my earlier question : why do you copy/paste links from forum topics into a Google search ? Google needs only a few key words (2 or 3) to conduct an efficient search ; anymore than that and you're asking for trouble lol.

 

To me, this is a Google matter and has nothing to do with IObit. If I type "IObit" in a search box, I'm not getting any sick links in the results, not in the first few pages anyway...

Me again ;-)

 

Okie, I think I have an answer for you now.

 

I went back to those sites that came back as results, with your search input. What I did is go to my Google home page, then paste this in the search box :

http://forums.iobit.com/showthread.php?t=5745

 

Now, I got results similar to yours. I then visited this page (from Google cache, not the direct link) :

http://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=clnk&cd=3&ved=undefined&url=http%3A%2F%2F74.125.113.132%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dcache%3AoKu7-WWREDIJ%3Ananamag.com%2Fshow.php%253FCategory%253Ddara%2526No%253D12%2526page%253D8199%2Bhttp%3A%2F%2Fforums.iobit.com%2Fshowthread.php%253Ft%253D5745%26cd%3D3%26hl%3Dfr%26ct%3Dclnk%26gl%3Dca&rct=j&q=http%3A%2F%2Fforums.iobit.com%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D5745&ei=wl5XS_uHO8bT8Qa7iam3Aw&usg=AFQjCNFQ8FD2Cxd4n_EnEnYAkWSl9-9sQQ

 

..which you have showing in your results as well. A language I don't understand. That's where I got my Lady Sonia links. I don't know what's going on there, but it seems like people are posting spam links of all kinds. Either they are reporting spam or... they are posting it directly on an uncontrolled forum.

 

I also know why we get directed there. On the page, they have this :

zyzq,[color="Red"]http://forums.iobit.com/member.php?[/color]u=8046Order Viagra, 

 

That is a spam post from this forum that was removed. That's why Google picked it up, Okie. Look at the link and then look at what you pasted in your search box : a lot of similarity so Google did its best to find you something close.

 

That's all, folks ;-)

Hi Okie,

 

Looks like So_Sad is onto it. If you type a forum link into your browser's address bar and it takes you to the particular forum topic then there's nothing wrong with the forum.

 

Google doesn't necessarily see a forum link as a link. It has no way of knowing that what you're interested in is the content at the other end of the link. It just knows you're looking for info related to the search string "http://forums.iobit.com/showthread.php?t=5745." It's bound to come back with some goofy stuff.

 

Edit: Bing seems to be more selective. When I searched via Bing it came back with...

 

"Were you looking for: forums iobit showthread php t 5745

We did not find any results for http://forums.iobit.com/showthread.php?t=5745.

Hi Dave ;

 

Yup, that's an ever clearer explanation ;-)

 

Just to add some details : the link I clicked was the one for that "nanamag" result that Okie got (see screenshots). The official link didn't give me the Lady Sonia stuff (lol), so I had to use the cached link to see it.

Hi Mel

Yes if the link is there, it can be utilized.

 

Okie if you copy the link and paste it - you should place it in the address line and not in the Google search box.

When I first tried to understand you I thought you were talking about copying an entire webside - when in reality you talked about copying a link to an address in the forum as far as I now understand. (sorry)

Cheers

All I know is that I didn't copy and paste. I just hit the link Titou provided and it took me straight to Softpedia Iobit download. I then got a free year licence!;-)

Hi Okie!

 

Your posts are absolutely legitimate and you are not a troublemaker! This is an important topic of discussion... and is completely relevant and in good nature in the lounge!!!:smile:

 

The only question I ask: "Is the glass half empty or half full right now??"

 

Your colleague and friend (if you allow)

Okie,

 

It just occurred to me that this might be how your email address was compromised in the first place. If you searched a forum link on Google and left your email at a bogus site thinking you were dealing with IObit, that could explain it. It wouldn't even have to have been one of the ruder sites, just related. Spammers will offer free incentives (often utility or AV software) in order to harvest email addresses. Then they trade or sell those addresses back and forth. Just sort of thinking out loud here...

Hi Okie,

 

This was a porn spam thread/post in the IObit Forum, and it was deleted, the member is banned immediately at that time, but of course in the time when that thread was on the Forum, Google picked it up and cached, then search got only forums.iobit.com part of it, and also the # of the thread/post in another forum. There are so many forums in the web with # 5744 post/thread.

That's why you should not write forum thread or post addresses into the Google search box.

 

This thread/post does not exist anymore!!!

 

Clear or not?:razz:

 

Cheers.:smile:

As a bell!!!

 

Aye Enoskype!!!!

 

 

Thank you for the hard work you put in on this!

 

I wish I was there to personally acknowledge this!:smile:

 

A long distance TY is all I can give...

 

But perception of distance is relative... and you are a blessing!

 

 

Sincerely,

Uncontrollable Cache.

 

Okie,

 

Google is a warehouse of information... they have more than anybody else... they continue to store it... without examining the morality or validity of it...

 

this is Google Cache (as far as bits from Internet traffic).

 

Enoskype has done brilliant work here.

 

The glass is more than half full!!:lol:

 

Sincerely, Mel

 

 

If you continue to post links in search panel of google... You must de-link them first!!!!! Problem solved in future!!?

Thanks Okie,

 

Google is full of this, because you are defining to Google to search forums ,iobit, com, member, t, p, php, 5744, etc,etc.

 

Okie,

 

It just occurred to me that this might be how your email address was compromised in the first place. If you searched a forum link on Google and left your email at a bogus site thinking you were dealing with IObit, that could explain it.

 

Please give me the link to that thread that you say you can find.

 

 

Thanks Mel,

 

Cheers.

Was not preaching!!

 

Only patting Enoskype on the back... that's all!!;-)

 

Take no offense... I only offer cudos where I feel they are deserved! Compliment to Enoskype.... not threat to Okie!

 

I will stop on this thread now as I seem to be an aggravating influence instead of a moderating/calming one!:-|

 

To a happy conclusion I hope!

 

-Mel

 

 

P.S. Known it was you for about two weeks... but didn't want to blow your cover! Your language and expression is the same, thus one knows another on forum!

 

PSS. Could spammers, once they get Okies ISP address, follow back through all google link searches related to Iobit posts and thus... this is why they are the exact same! Hmm? Following the bread crumbs back through the woods... Hmm?

Gary,

 

Notice in the replies to you that many people have mentioned caches or cached links. As well as performing searches on live, current web sites, Google also archives or caches site content on it's own servers. If you look at the results of your searches you'll almost always see the link "Cached" at the end of a search result. "Cached" is a link to the cached version of the web page, pdf, move, mp3, whatever that's stored on the Google server.

 

In short, it's possible for Google to have a cached version of a web page that no longer exists on the web. Take a look at this link.

 

It's good to see you back, too.

Hi Okie,

 

I have pasted http://forums.iobit.com/showthread.php?t=5532 Optical Illusion as you showed, in the Google box and the below screenshot is that page from Google.

 

You will see that only the first found item is related to the concerned post. (Infact thread, as you have shown.)

 

I have numbered the words and phrases as Google does when you paste something in the box.

 

You will see in the other items in the found pages that at least 1 phrase from the inserted address is taken.

 

For example, whichever thread number you search for, the ones not including a number will show again.

 

As I said in my PM, some webmasters are clever and using special softwares to be included on the first pages of Google searches.

 

http =>1

forums =>2

iobit =>3

showthread?t =>4

php =>5

t =>6

5532 =>7

http:// forums =>8

 

 

It is self explanatory that Google is doing exactly what the first teached sentence in IT world.

 

GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out). :lol:

 

That's why it is not a good practise to paste forum post/thread addresses to the Google box.

Cheers my friend.
