Avoiding Misdirection: Stay on the “Write” Path; Don’t Gamble with Google (or GoDaddy)
Confusing headline? Not as confusing as reports that some links to Write2Ignite’s website have taken visitors to a casino website! We’ve checked and rechecked our website Write2Ignite.com and internal links. We’ve since found a few links that connect to the casino website.
We’ve uncovered two possible explanations: either a problem with Google analytics, which is redirecting visitors to what Google believes is the W2I website, or a problem with GoDaddy, the host site for our web domain. Our webmaster and other Team members continue to investigate, with some help from tech-savvy family members.
While we can’t immediately resolve the problem and prevent all misdirection, we’re alerting you, our faithful readers and visitors, to the situation.
Here’s some help in the meantime. Unfortunately, if you type “Write2Ignite” into your browser and click a link that arises in the search results, you’re likely to reach the casino. It’s important to type “Write2Ignite.com” in your browser’s address bar for a search or web address navigation.
Please bear with us as we attempt to stop this misdirection. We appreciate your comments reporting any such errors, so that we can remain aware and alert to communication problems. Like Christian, our protagonist in Pilgrim’s Progress, we want to stay on the right path and help others avoid losing their way as well!
