A TON of text on my page is automatically created into a link to a "Surf Canyon" Search. This really annoys me, and I was wondering if there is any way to remove it.
Thanks!

Hi sibobtheguyindustries

Thank you for sharing the URL of your site.

I have viewed your site in Chrome and Firefox and I am not seeing the links you describe. Here is a screen shot of the home page of your site as it displays on my screen.



Please check whether you have any Chrome add-ons, Spyware or Adware installed on your browser or computer. If you do, please uninstall or disable this software as it may be adding the links on your webpages.

Thanks for looking at it, I assumed it was something to do with Yola but obviously not. I will take a closer look at my browser. I do see 2 links on the page that I did not create, the one on "The Adventures of Bob The Guy" and "GAMES", but I am not sure if those were visible on your computer. Thanks again!

P.S. where would you look first? I have AVG and do not see any spyware detected, where should I look for add ons?

Hello Sibob,
It looks like its in the button : http://tools.digitalpoint.com/geovisi... , I think theyre leaving ads as theyre services are free. You should try to remove the SEO counter and see if it works then :)

i did as you suggested, and have noticed no difference, unfortunately. However I am beginning to be more and more convinced it is my browser, as the word "GAMES" in my earlier post is now a link.

Well, I found the problem! If you click one of the links, it will take you to Surf Canyon, and at the top of that there will be some text saying: "The link that you clicked to get to this page was a Surf Canyon "Search Link". Click here to learn more." When you click there is a button to turn Search links off.
Thanks so much for all your help! If I ever have another problem I know where to go :)
