Rogue links have started being attached to my website.

I managed to get rid of them earlier this week but they have reappeared.

Can you please explain how a word in the text on the Home page suddenly has a link attached.
If this is clicked you leave my site.
What can be done about this please?

Cannot see them so it is malware, as Pete has said check your plugins but also run a malware scan as it may be a browser hijacker.

How do I check my "plug ins"
I am surprised if it is a browser hijack.
I have just run a major anti malware program
Please let me know how I check my plugins
