Just Wondering about the Green Links

Is anyone else getting random green links in their posts using words they've written? My daughter pointed it out to me. How are they doing that and how can I make it stop? If you see a green link with two lines underneath it, it wasn't linked by me and I advice that you don't click it. If anyone has a solution for this please let me know. I've noticed it on a lot of other blogs as well, so I know it's not just me. Weird!

Update: The green links are messing with my mind. LOL! Sometimes they are there and sometimes they are not. Oy! Well just beware regardless because they were there yesterday on quite a few blogs. *sigh*


  1. Kim, I haven't noticed these links, but then I'm not always very observant. If you ever notice them in my posts, please let me know. Hope you get your answers. :)

  2. I just looked over your other posts and I don't see them, nor have I noticed them on other blogs. But thanks for the heads up cuz' I'd hate to click on something that could damage my computer.

    I know if your e-mail starts sending out spam it's because someone has stolen your password. Maybe try changing your blog password if the problem persists?

  3. The links with the two lines beneath it are a type of advertising... I haven't noticed them on your blog but I notice them on other websites... they do get pretty annoying if you click on one and it takes you to a totally different site for a totally different topic...

    I'm sorry- I can't tell you how to stop them... unless you have AdSense running on your site and Google decided to add those as a part of your advertising? I don't know... Sorry :-)

    Hope you figure it out- although, like I said, I don't see them on here :-)

  4. I also had noticed the links on many blogs.

    Drove me batty also!!!

    oh well don't see them today

    In HIS Keeping,

  5. Hi Miss Kim!
    I had them on my blog and in my comments yesterday. I like your advisory. I clicked on some of them wondering what they were and didn't necessarily like where they took me. I was wondering what the problem was too. If you find a permanent solution, I'd love to know about it! I thought maybe it was just my web browser (Firefox) or something.

  6. Just checked in both Explorer and Foxfire and I don't see any on your blog.

    It happens on my phone when I'm texting all the time. But I've not seen it on blogs before. I'll keep my eyes open!

    Incidentally, when I clicked my bookmark for your site in Firefox, it took me to some BBC site. VERY weird!


  7. I haven't seen anything on your blog or others, but I checked into it and it could be happening if your virus software or security doesn't block ads like that. I also saw that it can be a sign of a virus or malware on your computer. Also read about a lady that discovered it was coming from a game that her kids had installed (Gamevance) and once it was gone, the issue was gone too.

    Hope that helps my friend! Maybe it was just an issue with the browser yesterday and got fixed - who knows?

    Big seeing-little-green-words-is-better-than-seeing-little-green-men size hugs to you!! Hee,hee Love ya!! :)

  8. I wouldn't worry about seeing green links. However, if you start seeing little green men....


  9. little green men? maybe.......but I'd be more concerned if it were little men in white jackets!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
