Website not loading through Google search results

Hey guys,

The website loads fine in my web browser. However when I google "anthony masih" in a search, and click on the same link I get redirected to and Safari v6 cannot find the server (running Mac OS X 10.8.1).

I suspect a Wordpress issue or plug-in malfunction, can anyone spot the problem and offer a solution?

    For some reason, Google is showing a long redirect when you hover over that link that it does not show on other entries.  I think the problem is from Google and probably not from your site or it would do it when you directly accessed it.  You'll have to contact Google to get that fixed.  Have you signed up for Google Sitemaps and submitted a sitemap yet?

    Works fine for using a local Google.
    Do you use a dynamic dns service?

    I suspect you've been hacked.!topic/webmasters/Lmmo2_skpcg

    Start checking your PHP files (especially index.php, header.php and all plugin code) for random garbage characters.

    I had to battle this quite often.

    You are most likely looking at a hack which has modified your .htaccess . You might be facing the issue that there is a mechanism injected in your site which will be triggered from the outside (!) and will overwrite  your .htaccess files.

    They are formulated to only redirect when coming from certain search engines.

    In addition you might also be looking at some symlink hacks (one of the common methods for this hacks).

    Start by looking at the .htaccess in your document root folder

    The problem was a combination of erroneous script & problem on Google's end. Thanks for the help guys, sorry about the delayed grading!
