    Has anyone else had this problem?
    How do I get rid of it?

    The blog I need help with is testimonyofalostangel.wordpress.com.

    I don’t understand exactly what you are reporting. Please provide a detailed explanation of exactly what you mean. Also post screenshot, upload it to your Media Library, and return to this thread to provide the file name so Staff can examine it. I’ll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

    Howdy,

    That error message isn’t familiar to us. Could you provide a link to the page on Google with the link that produces this error and/or a screenshot as suggested by timethief.

    Thank you!

    I also saw this come up in Google while doing a search for my page.

    Hi,

    Could either of you take a screenshot, upload it to your site’s media library, and let me know once you’ve done so?

    I’ve tried searching Google for your sites and everything appears normal to me. I’m happy to help, but not quite sure of the problem yet!

    I saw it this morning, so it’s odd that it’s not there now. I’ll keep an eye out for it in for the future.

    Hello, so I did a Google search for my exact link (using quotation marks) and was able to find it. I took a screenshot.

    Is there anything that can be done about this? Thanks

    Not until you post a screenshot of the error. Since we haven’t seen it and can’t duplicate it, we don’t know what we’re dealing with.

    And here’s a screenshot http://raincoaster.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/broken-connectors.png I see the error on the second link on that page. It’s clearly a spam diverter of some kind.

    Okay, is there a way to have this removed from search results? Mostly for SEO purposes…

    No, but if you can’t blog enough to push this off the front page of Google, you must try harder. Once the issue is solved, forum threads aren’t updated and as long as you’re posting regularly your forum threads will not likely be on the first page of Google.

    Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do at WordPress.com to help influence search results like that. Raincoaster is right—putting more solid content on your site that would push these folks off the front-page of Google is the best plan of attack.
