My wife and I started a website several months ago. Today on Google Search Console we noticed some strange variations of pages on her site. They were found under the section:
Coverage > Crawled - currently not indexed
They look something like the following with our domain and some weird words appended to the end:
example.com/detroitchicago/raleighz.js?gcb=195-0&cb=5 example.com/porpoiseant/jellyfish.webp?a=a&cb=0&shcb=34 example.com/detroitchicago/edmonton.webp?a=a&cb=0&shcb=34 example.com/detroitchicago/memphis.js?gcb=195-0&cb=10 example.com/detroitchicago/minneapolis.js?gcb=195-0&cb=3
These pages just load up a bunch of gibberish code.
When I go to the referring pages and do a find, I don't see any mention. However, if I do an inspect in my Chrome browser and search for string "detroitchicago" then a handful of results show up.
Was the website hacked? I don't see any directories like
detroitchicago in my hosting file manager when I search for it, but it seems to be in the page code.
What can I do to fix this problem and prevent it from happening? Do I just submit a new request to remove these strange URLS in Google Search Console?
