what to do?

Right now. Its not negative seo as you may know it but rather its negatively impacting my website.

A hacker/spammer has some how and for some odd reason been for the past couple of days (along with other excerpts form other peoples websites) has been shoving my content on hacked pages thousands of them.. no links to my site... but on google if you search for my brand name dozens of hacked pages and spam appear below and if you search for extracts from my product descriptions I appear on page 2 and the hacked pages are above me...

They have ripped my home page content and multiple product descriptions.... and the best part is that I do not sell oakley glasses or stupid fake handbags and they are using my content when its totally irrelevant.

Need help with my schema markup

Google has been going around manually taking out (penalizing) websites that are doing rich snippet spam so it is important I get things perfect for my site.

I heard that you are not allowed to use schema for things not visible on the page... but

I am currently using the all in one seo extension for opencart which has given me this in my header iv pasted it over on pastebin for you to see.. here is the link

Is this correct markup... or will the

 <div itemprop="aggregateRating" itemscope itemtype="" />

and the other divs be seen as hidden content and google will penalize me for it. All the data correlates with my actual product page info but I dont like assuming anything as google takes no prisoners and seems to like collateral damage.
Also using the google schema markup tool to look at how google would display my product page in the search result shows that google wants to show the review rating but not the actual product price? Annoyingly google doesn't tell you whether how you have markup stuff is acceptable or not it just reads the code and prints out... not whether your doing it the "spammy" way or the right way.

*I dont have anything in the actual body of my page marked up.

*If people arnt 100% sure if this is correct id rather get rid of schemea entirely.. does anyone know how I could disable schema on the all in one seo extension?

Thanks guys.

ps Opencart is the best!

How to 404 all urls from sub directory?


I have wordpress on my site and some moron (before I owned the doamin) hacked the previous owners and put the rubbish usual hacked links on the domain and spammed them... the domains really great if it wasnt for that. anyway I have wordpress installed on the site and these hacked pages used to be on urls in /?/ like so.. I cannot ignore this problem because on these urls wordpress is stupidly showing homepage content and not a 404 because of this ? my question is how do I block 404 or hopefully totally gone error these pages

here is what I mean

I tried just uplaoding a wordpress site to /? but godaddy installatron didnt let me... can some one help!

Oh yes

something to not is that I cannot access my godaddy ftp properly... godaddy just shows me ftpquota and that is it. If i try and upload a htaccess on the root I just break the entire site totally with 500 internal errors and I have been messing around for hours just trying to get my wordpress site back up... in the end I had to reset the whole hosting account because deleting everything didnt help. So this means that I can only upload to the /?/ folder...... thanks godaddy.

Any help would be really appreciated.

thank you guys.

500 Internal errors keep popping up on godaddy hosting!

Can some one please help me... godaddy is being stupidly useless. My website is totally broken. I had a WordPress site on it and tried changing the htaccess through godaddy file manager as logging in through filezilla didn't work and didnt display any files or folders apart from ftpquota... anyway after making a few alterations I started getting 500 internal errors... I undid the changes I made, I even deleted the htaccess file completely but the 500 internal error spersisted.. next I decided to uninstall wordpress and start from scratch however installatron gives me a error 

"PHP for the selected domain has failed.Installatron is unable to install to a domain where PHP is not working.Your hosting provider can help you resolve this error.Error code: 1; HTTP code: 500"

even if I upload a simple html file now through the ftp it doesnt let me access it through the browse as it gives me a 500 internal error message.

-I know that this is a godaddy problem for sure and not a wordpress one because if I try installing other software such as drupal I get the same error and the fact that I cannot even upload and see normal html files that are not even php files is not good... I am totally confused.. but I am certain that godaddy is the worst hosting ever. I will see what there support has got to help but if anyone else can help me then please do by commenting below!

Please help.

thank you.

Just contacted godaddy hopefully they will give me some help! I hope!
