I was wondering if you all could just take a look at http://www.redgeographics.com and let me know when you see something that is not my company website (no duck = not good). This is not some ploy to get more visitors, I'm just curious to find out what's going on.


Looks just fine for me. I think my problem was due to a spyware or virus of some sort. I reboot my computer several times, try numerous solutions, but it came back only when I finish a scan with my anti-spyware. My page was visible by all the others though during this time.

I'm fearing there might be something going on with my domain as well. It works just fine for me, but I've heard from others who end up seeing something that's *not* my website.

Looks fine to me. Maybe your clients are mistyping the URL and being directed to one of those generic domain registration/offer websites. I've had this happen on more than one occasion. User error is the most likely cause.

Actually, a client just sent me some screenshots. Apparently when he's going to a page on my website, he ends up at this blog-like thing with "all the information on Red Geographics Zevenbergen" and links to other, similar blog pages.

I'm guessing there's some bad DNS's around, but I had 2 clients report this.

Strange. Never had that happen before.
