Just two weeks ago I discovered my wordpress blog had been hacked. I only found the hack because I noticed a strange keyword listed in webmaster tools that had absolutely nothing to do with the contents of my website. I then found hundreds of links to my blog from spammy sites. After some reading I found out I was a victim of ‘spam injection’. I found this article most helpful in removing the hack – http://robertogaloppini.net/2007/12/12/wordpress-spam-injection-goro-hacked-my-blog/

Since removing the junk Google has been quick to rank my site again…thank goodness!
