    I have a couple posts that I am having a similar problem with (like Defensebaseactcomp) mentions. It is happening here:

    I can't find anything in the HTML code on the posts, and they load fine when clicked on. It's just in the Google Search. I noticed you are talking about this through a long thread. Is this happening a lot right now?

    Thanks for your help!

    I have seen this on three wordpress blogs and my own, yours makes the fifth
    Despite the explanation provided by WordPress that neither I or they have been hacked my traffic has been altered. Searches for the specific terms do not register in my wordpress stats. My ranking for these terms which were very high have dropped significantly.
    These awk arrays are used by hackers and they do give directions
    Where are they being inserted and by whom, I cannot get an answer anywhere
    I do know that my blog has been targeted by a company which advertises that it can bury my posts so I must suspect them.

  6. But your blog has not been successfully redirected, that's the thing.

  7. This was just recently fixed: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/help-google-sitemap-issues/page/2?replies=40#post-910767

    It turned out to be a very hard to pin-point issue in our sitemap generator.

    Sorry for the trouble!

  8. Also, no redirection took place. defensebaseactcomp, I have yet to see any evidence of this from you.

  9. defensebaseactcomp, also awk arrays are not "used by hackers," it's a programming language. From out last reply to you via email:

    An awk program is a sequence of patterns and actions that tell what to look for in the input data and what to do when it's found. Awk searches a set of files for lines matched by any of the patterns; when a matching line is found, the corresponding action is performed. A pattern can select lines by combinations of regular expressions and comparison operations on strings, numbers, fields, and variables.

    I'm including a link on learning the awk programming language, if you are interested: http://www.grymoire.com/Unix/Awk.html

    Sorry for the multiple replies, just trying to clear up some misinformation.

    I did notice that the html is no longer showing up in google alerts
    Very interesting on the Awk language and appreciated. Maybe the people writing on the hacking sites about using this language do not really use them.
    The other problems apparently lie elsewhere and are being addressed elsewhere.
    I'd like to suggest for those using these forums that we come here because we do not understand what problems we are having, it does not mean they are not real because they are not immediately recognized or identifiable via our lack of knowledge or inability to properly explain them.
    Thank you to everyone who took their time to help.

  11. You're welcome!
