Until a few months ago my site (www.abpanama.com) was on the page 1 of google for several terms, including "panama real estate" and "panama real estate listings"
Now my site is virtually nowhere to be found?
If I search google for "abpanama.com - I get this result as #1(at time of writing):

UK - Gas - Electricity - Electricity Supplier - Gas Supplier - Gas ...
Electric meter electric meters electric shaver electric skillet electric stove electric stoves electric supply electric utility electric violins electric ...
www.abpanama.com/ - Cached - Similar -

I have no idea who or what this site is and how it is linking to my site.

link:www.utilities4u.co.uk in google shows supposed links to this site - all listed pages have the common element of a link to abpanama.
I have changed hosts and even paid 'experts' to look for the problem with no success (other than screwing up my site in other ways)
FYI, no other search engines show any links at all to this site, only google.
It has been several months and nothing has changed, so something is still causing the problem.
Nothing untoward shows in my google webmaster account

I really need someone who has experience in this type of problem.

Please can you try at least two if not more of these  On-line scans, Removing any items that are found
Bit Defender
PC Pitstop
Also please use one or both of  these Trojan scanners
or download and try
TrojanHunter (Note Trojan Scanner 30 day Trial)
Once you have done that can you clear out your cache folder again ie: Run
(Note in CCleaner: go to >options > advanced > Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours").
Now can you scan for Spy/Malware there are a number of programs that you can use for free Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is one of them that i recommend after running the program you can post the logfile here.


press Enter then have a Brandy then if the problem is still there have another Brandy
Q: does it work
A: It does seem to for a few hours at least

Thanks, but the virus is on my website, NOT on my computer. I have downloaded the files and run scans but nothing shows. It is possible there are hidden files on the server that are not downloaded.

This problem appears to have been solved by a Google employee here: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Webm...cea80&hl=en

Hi abpanama
It looks like other people may have your site verified and have used the Change of Address tool to change it over to the other site that you saw. At the moment, it looks like the setting has been turned off, but since other people may still have your site verified it's possible that it can happen again.

Hope it helps!
