I have this website natural-track.com and when I do a cache check I get a completely different website,This is Google's cache of http://www.backpackers-planet.com/modules.php?name=Web_Links&l_op=visit&lid=3379 , unrelated to my site. I have checked with the host, they say all is well on their side.

How can we fix it? The site also went off from Google Search. We are about to rebuild this site to a better professional platform but first we would like to have an idea of what happened and how to fix it.

http://www.backpackers-planet.com/modules.php?name=Web_Links&l_op=visit&lid=3379 redirects to http://www.natural-track.com/.

And Google’s cached version of http://www.natural-track.com/ also corresponds to the page http://www.natural-track.com/.

Indeed, and its a temporary 302 redirect (as opposed to permanent 301) so that's why its causing odd issues. – Max Nov 7 '13 at 10:53
Thank you for the info. The 302 redirect, did we cause it or it is from google? What can or should we do to correct it? Sure traffic has gone completely for the last 3 weeks. – user32592 Nov 8 '13 at 12:01
@user32592: The page on backpackers-planet.com 302-redirects to http://www.natural-track.com/. It’s totally up to the webmasters of backpackers-planet.com what they do (which redirect; if to redirect at all). There is nothing to "correct" from your side. – unor Nov 8 '13 at 19:21
This is very helpful, thanks very much. – user32592 Nov 15 '13 at 7:46
@moobot Upon reading more and more on forums, could this 302 redirect from the backpacker site be a spammer? (I fail to understand why/how to have redirect, with a site that is not related to us) – user32592 Nov 15 '13 at 8:46
