I google webgraphviz.com and the first two results are:

How does the first one, which redirects to a pharmacy website, have the identical domain with the second one? I even suspect this is a kind of faking domain in which the attacker uses similar characters (e.g. Α (capital Greek α) and A (capital English a), but checking with the fake one by copying the domain and paste it to the Non-ASCII checker I find it only contains ASCII characters. So how is this possible?

1 Answer 1


I expect the site was hacked and cleaned up, and Google (for now) remembers both.

When I go to both the first and second link it takes me to the identical looking page.

  • How can Google not recognize both have the same domain? The second result takes me to the real site

  • I just tried it again and it appears there is now only one answer returned by Google. I expect that the answer is "eventual consistency" - ie Googles data being inconsistent for a while, with different crawlers advising different information due to spidering at different times - and then both being aggregated.

  • But even so, how can one same domain take me to different website? Anyway, I still see different results on my side
